Well, your source for the information says it all- rather than use statistical data from a reliable, unbiased source- something the Republicans just seem to have problems doing, the Heathen Republican? Really?
"A secular conservative site dedicated to asserting conservative principles without religious ..."

Yep, no agenda there. No reason to confuse fact and fiction.


Well if you can find it on senate.gov, more power to you. Don't you think that was the first place I looked? If the same information came from keitholbermannfanatics.com, would it somehow be more credible?

No, but it is available on PRNewswire.com, for example. FactCheck.org is another...

Is the chart the same on those sites as it is on the one he used? If that is the case, then it doesn't make any difference, unless you are disputing what he said and not the chart itself.

Don't get me wrong, I fully agree with ignoring articles that come from biased sites like Huffington or Worldnetdaily, but if its chart that is used by several sites without being changed, then the source doesn't make much of a difference.

I'm pretty liberal on some things but I'm far from a democrat.


Understandable, and I like most of your posting this is the tinderbox after all I check any soft feelings when I enter.

If the information was as streamlined as the website I used, I would have used it instead. I knew before I posted that someone would be derping about the source.

Most informative sites I've found talk specifically about senate confirmations or votes to end filibusters.

And let's not pretend Harry Reid isn't a one man filibuster when the House sends up anything budget related.

speaking of "derping", there's a whole hell of a lot of "derping" going on at the top of this list

http://killfil.com/senators/

The data that powers this site comes from a number of sources including: Senate.gov and Govtrack.us. XML files from these sources are pulled in, parsed, and aggregated daily.
My premise is that a vote against a cloture motion is equal to a vote for a filibuster. So basically, the obstruction rate is the number of Nay votes on cloture motions, divided by the total number of cloture votes in the given time period.
