Rubbish.Here's another right wing delusion:
Sen. Ted Kennedys temporary replacement wasnt sworn in until Sept. 24 of 2009, giving Democrats a filibuster-proof majority for four months and one week until Republican Scott Brown filled Kennedys seat after a special election.
The claim that Obama had a filibuster proof majority over Congress for two years yapped repeatedly by you clods because fox told you it was true is more than just faulty memory. Its a lie.
This is a fact that you can look up and report back here that you learned something. Let's see if you do.
I've checked the numbers in detail.
Obama, Biden, Fancy Nancy Pelosi and Mad Harry Reid had a flat-out filibuster-proof Senate supermajority for 182 days or 25% of the of duration of the 111th US Congress. They had a supermajority, or needed only ONE vote for a supermajority for 560 days, or 3/4 of the time.
IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS IN US POLITICS.
So what did these incompetent leftist idealogues do with this unparalleled power for the 1st two years of the Obama presidency, while the US economy was melting down around us?
They WASTED it ramming ObamaScare down America's screaming throat.
This alone is rank and unforgiveable ineptitude, sufficient to warrant running Obama out of town on a rail even if he hadn't also presided over quadrupling the American death toll in Afghanistan, hundreds of innocents murdered by illegal weapons gun-walked across the Mexican border with the consent of Obama's Justice Dept, including US Border patrol Agent Brian Terry, and the deaths of 4 more Americans in Libya - AND THEN LIED ABOUT IT to cover up his own incompetence.
One vote away from an absolute dictatorship of the Obama/Pelosi/Reid axis for his first two years, and you're seriously whining about 'his program being blocked? They couldn't even manage to get only ONE Republican Senate vote for their programs?
Not even from George Voinovich or Olympia Snowe, who each voted with the Dems 31% of the time?
Not even from Arlen Spector, who voted with the Dems 68% of the time?
This is nothing more nor less than a damning indictment of Obama's abject failure as a President and a LEADER.
Throw the bum out.
