Filibuster

This is Exciting

In response to Marco Rubio to Filibuster Brennan:

Gohmert to Obama: Will You Voluntarily Give Up Your Sequester Golf?

Mar 6, 2013 1:37 PM PT

Today, Congressman Gohmert has sent a letter to President Obama asking him to voluntarily give up his golf outings so there is enough money for visitors and tourists to take WH tours.

His 2004 Senate run and two presidential campaigns all shared the same modus operandi of unleashing surrogates to tar opponents, bully critics, romance the mainstream media, and caricature the shrinking number of journalistic kulaks — all while deploring the politics of personal destruction.

After three-hours and ten minutes of Kentucky senator Rand Paul employing a good old-fashioned talking filibuster, Utah senator Mike Lee has stepped in to relieve his Republican colleague.
