Funny how when things go against the Republicans how they whine and cry like the babies they are. For instance when the Republicans were in the majority and the Democrats wanted to filibuster Republican issues you would hear quotes like "Deomcrats can't do that" or "how dare Democrats do that" now that the Democrats are in charge I'd like to offer this quote from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) Kentucky:

"The fundamental decision to stay on offence and to finish the job, I think is correct, and we believe the president is heading in the right direction and tend to support him,"

"Congress is completely incapable of dictating the tactics of the war."

Reid has said he will schedule a vote on a nonbinding bill expressing disapproval of Bush's new policy, but McConnell's filibuster threat indicated that he would not be rushed into the vote. Under the Senate's rules, 60 votes are required to cut off debate on an issue, and even the threat of a filibuster can force concessions by the majority.

So let me get this straight if I understand this: Democrats couldn't filibuster Republican bills but Republicans can filibuster Democrat Bills?? Sad what babies they are aren't they?
