I'm saying that when democrats were recently in the minority, their use of the filibuster was at an unprecedented level, particularly when it comes to judicial appointments, but in general as well. I guess we can argue about what constitutes "abuse", if anything, but democrats have no room to complain about what they've been reaping for the past few years.
"After voters re-elected an administration that added five trillion dollars to the nationís debt, left 23 million Americans unemployed, surrendered Iraq to Americaís enemy Iran, and enabled the Muslim Brotherhood to gain control of the largest country in the Middle East, the one lesson Republicans should agree on is that elections are driven by emotions, not reason." - David Horowitz
