Johnson, who wanted the bill passed as soon as possible, ensured that the bill would be quickly considered by the Senate. Normally, the bill would have been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Senator James O. Eastland, Democrat from Mississippi. Given Eastland's firm opposition, it seemed impossible that the bill would reach the Senate floor. Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield took a novel approach to prevent the bill from being relegated to Judiciary Committee limbo. Having initially waived a second reading of the bill, which would have led to it being immediately referred to Judiciary, Mansfield gave the bill a second reading on February 26, 1964, and then proposed, in the absence of precedent for instances when a second reading did not immediately follow the first, that the bill bypass the Judiciary Committee and immediately be sent to the Senate floor for debate.

When the bill came before the full Senate for debate on March 30, 1964, the "Southern Bloc" of 18 southern Democratic Senators and one Republican Senator led by Richard Russell (D-GA) launched a filibuster to prevent its passage.[13] Said Russell: "We will resist to the bitter end any measure or any movement which would have a tendency to bring about social equality and intermingling and amalgamation of the races in our (Southern) states."[14]

The most fervent opposition to the bill came from Senator Strom Thurmond (D-SC): "This so-called Civil Rights Proposals, which the President has sent to Capitol Hill for enactment into law, are unconstitutional, unnecessary, unwise and extend beyond the realm of reason. This is the worst civil-rights package ever presented to the Congress and is reminiscent of the Reconstruction proposals and actions of the radical Republican Congress."[15]

After 54 days of filibuster, Senators Everett Dirksen (R-IL), Thomas Kuchel (R-CA), Hubert Humphrey (D-MN), and Mike Mansfield (D-MT) introduced a substitute bill that they hoped would attract enough Republican swing votes to end the filibuster. The compromise bill was weaker than the House version in regard to government power to regulate the conduct of private business, but it was not so weak as to cause the House to reconsider the legislation.[16]

On the morning of June 10, 1964, Senator Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) completed a filibustering address that he had begun 14 hours and 13 minutes earlier opposing the legislation. Until then, the measure had occupied the Senate for 57 working days, including six Saturdays. A day earlier, Democratic Whip Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota, the bill's manager, concluded he had the 67 votes required at that time to end the debate and end the filibuster. With six wavering senators providing a four-vote victory margin, the final tally stood at 71 to 29. Never in history had the Senate been able to muster enough votes to cut off a filibuster on a civil rights bill. And only once in the 37 years since 1927 had it agreed to cloture for any measure.[17]

<quoted text>I was watching the clock to see when someone would blame another tragedy on the Black president. You Republicans cannot fool this country into believing the president is the reason for all of the bad things happening in this world. Matter of fact the Republicans do not care about the people that are killed or else they would have been part of a bipartisan effort to solve a lot of these problems. It is all ablout a bunch of sore loser racists hating the Black president at any opportune time.
That's what makes DumBama the greatest President of all time: nothing is ever his fault.

The economy is not his fault, the terror attacks on US soil was not his fault, Fast and Furious was not his fault, the IRS targeting conservative groups was not his fault, Russia going into Ukraine is not his fault, record new debt is not his fault, record number of government dependents is not his fault, the 6 million of us that lost our healthcare insurance is not his fault, Benghazi response was not his fault, the VA problems are not his fault, the slowest recovery since WWII is not his fault, the US losing it's three star credit rating for the first time in history is not his fault, Iraq being taken over by Al Quada is not his fault, nothing is ever his fault.

Well if it's not DumBama's fault, who is at fault? George Bush and the Republican Congress.

Wasn't in the gutter until Obama, and then the next Republican President will have to undo all the damage that treasonous bastard has done to America.

So you wanted him to ignore the constitution also. Every President inherits the good and bad of the President before him. Obama is the only President to totally fail with their policies they themselves produced and then blame the previous President. He is inept and a whiner.

If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

If DumBama was that stupid to take a job he couldn't handle, whey didn't he just go back to Chicago where he belonged? You know what the job is, you know what your situation is when you accept the job, and then when you can't do the job, blame the guy before you.

Yeah, like trading five of our top terrorists in captivity for one lowly Private that deserted his post. That's not mentally challenged, especially when it's likely we will see some dead Americans because of it. No, that's sane.

I can almost sympathize with you there Big Dumb Johnson. I mean, blacks have been dreaming of this day since MLK. The first black President of The United States, and he turns out to be an utter failure. Not a wonder why you're so upset. Guess I can't blame you.

Let me give you some advice there Johnson: don't join the military now or in the near future. See, your failure wanted to get out of Iraq so bad that he forgot to check with the Iraqi leaders and our military leaders for information as to what would happen if we left the country. Now it seems like we might have to go back in. It's turning into a terrorist hotbed. They are close to taking over the whole country.

But what would one expect from a guy that never ran a lemonade stand yet alone a country?
