Joke of the day:
Marco Rubio on Fox News Sunday:
For the first two years of [Obama's] presidency, his party controlled both chambers of Congress. He could have had anything he wanted.
It is true liberal Dems controlled the House.
However, liberal Dems never controlled the Senate, whatever got through that apparently had to get through Lieberman and other blue-dog Democrats.
It's a very common BS technique (more common among the idiots of the Naderite variety) to imply that all Dems are on the liberal side of the spectrum.
In actuality, the Dems only had a filibuster-proof majority in the senate for IIRC 14 weeks in 2009/2010.
And the opposition can still delay legislation in the Senate for days at a time.
