Filibuster-Crazy Republicans

July 21st, 2007

Via TPM, McClatchy has the numbers on the recent balls-to-the-wall filibuster “Surge™” the Republicans have been employing in Congress, an intentional strategy to block legislation for the sole purpose of making the other party look bad. Here’s how it looks:


In short, they are projecting this to be the most obstructionist, filibuster-filled Congress in history, almost tripling the previous record. Frankly, I think that’s a conservative estimate (no pun intended); when we get closer to the election, the GOP may really want to make the Democratic Party look like a “do-nothing” congress, unable to get “bipartisan cooperation.” That’s their bag, really–be as partisan as you can, then say it’s the other guy’s fault.
