They actually used the filibuster more during the 110th Congress after they were taken out of power in 2006. They, like you, want it both ways. If they are in the minority they are standing up for America. If they are in the majority you should vote with them because the American people have spoken. Both answers represent that Republicans are my way or the highway. They have no desire to come to a compromise which is the backbone of bipartisan politics. It's not bipartisan if you only need one guy from the other side to come over to block everything, especially is you have nothing but your own partisan agenda to present when it comes time to pass bills.
I don't blame anyone, but you can't blame one party when that party doesn't have the votes to carry off a filibuster. And I still would like to see where you got that 85% number because I don't believe it.
Oh, and don't stop whining. It's incredibly entertaining to see a guy whining about how his party's massive majorities just can't find a way to govern.
