    Dems kept their powder dry and sent sternly worded letters to the GOP.  What did it get us and the nation as a whole in all that time??  

    The Dems think they can play the same game as the GOP but they're not even in the same ballpark.

    •  Democrats have one thing to learn from the GOP (6+ / 0-)

      They need to be far more ruthless when in the majority.

      Their response to filibusters of judges and other presidential appointees (NLRB, CFPB, ATF, CIA, etc) needs to match the GOP's response in 2006 - stop the filibusters or we will go nuclear.

      Filibuster reform, 2013 - woulda, coulda, shoulda.
