Dianne Feinstein On Filibuster Reform: Whoops

Posted By Jim Treacher On 8:35 AM 02/10/2017 In | No Comments

Most of the time Congress is boring and confusing, and the rest of the time it’s… well, boring and confusing. But it’s also good for some delicious schadenfreude, such as when our nation’s representatives outsmart themselves and then gripe about the consequences.

Remember when the Senate Democrats nuked the filibuster on presidential nominees, requiring only a simple majority of votes to end debate instead of a supermajority of 60? And are you paying attention to what’s currently happening to the Democrats, now that they’re no longer in power?

Are you unhappy about it? Even better!

Haley Byrd, Independent Journal Review:

Prior to [Jeff] Sessions’ confirmation vote on Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) told Independent Journal Review that Democrats “have done everything we can under the rules” to oppose the nominee. When IJR asked whether nuking the filibuster was a good idea in hindsight, Feinstein replied:

“As we look back, it may well have been better to not have changed the rules.”

Yes, Dianne, it may well have been. But what’s done is done. Your shortsightedness is nobody’s fault but your own. Harry Reid is gone, but his legacy lives on.

I’d say “live and learn,” but that doesn’t apply because they’re both Democrats and senators. Ain’t no comin’ back from that!

A battle is won by the side that is absolutely determined to win. Why did we lose the battle of Austerlitz? Our casualties were about the same as those of the French, but we had told ourselves early in the day that the battle was lost, so it was lost. Leo Tolstoy, “War and Peace”
