SORT BY Relevancy
Our country has basically stagnated for the last four years under two of the most unproductive Congresses in the nation’s history. Why does it seem that so little is getting done in Congress? Why does it seem that so few of the bills that get introduced in Congress actually make it to becoming law?
In this episode we examine the role the filibuster has played in bringing regular business in Congress to a halt. We discuss the filibuster’s role in the larger Republican strategy of obstructionism and examine why Republicans came to use it as a governing strategy. We also discuss the dangers that may lie in using it as a governing strategy for the country going forward.

One of the oldest and most storied traditions of the Senate made a sudden return to Capitol Hill on Wednesday when a junior senator seized control of the chamber with an hours-long filibuster involving rambling speeches aimed at blocking a vote on President Obama’s choice to lead the CIA. Led by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) with help from other junior senators, the filibuster stretched nearly 13 hours — with the Senate adjourning at about 12:40 a.m. Thursday — and was aimed at drawing attention to deep concern on both sides of the aisle about the administration’s use of unmanned aerial drones in its fight against terrorists and whether the government would ever use them in the United States.
Donald Trump is magical. He really is. It is miraculous the way he is able to create an entirely new narrative. None of it is made up. Trump is taking things that actually happened and spinning it in his favor and is dominating the news cycle once again.
What Trump has done in this election is turn things upside down. I love when people on both sides of the aisle complain when he uses certain tactics to gain political leverage, because it’s not what they’re used to. They’re normally the ones who use these tactics, especially the GOP. Now that Trump is turning the tables on them, they don’t now what to do. They’re confused. Flummoxed. Verklempt.
It’s hysterical, because Karl Rove was the master of mudslinging and dirty politics. So was Roger Ailes and Mary Matalin. They were the kings of using tactics against their opponents that people called questionable. Whether it’s Willie Horton or John McCain being crazy from being imprisoned for five years in Hanoi, Republicans have unapologetically used every lowly trick in the book to gain a political advantage.
Now you have Donald Trump using Karl Rove and Roger Ailes’ tried and true methods and is going completely over the top with them. The GOP is losing their minds. When Trump attacks Ted Cruz, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck lose their minds. They don’t know what to do, because they’re used to being in the driver’s seat.
The notion that Ted Cruz is not part of the establishment is insane. Whether you are a senator or a governor, if you have worked within the political system, you are part of the establishment. Just because Cruz is a senator who calls other people liars and does a 10 hour filibuster whilst reading Green Eggs and Ham and everybody in Congress hates his guts because he is a loudmouth a**hole, that doesn’t mean he isn’t part of the establishment. He is a senator.
