Mark Steyn On The Nuclear Option And Obamacare, The Greatest Act Of Punitive Liberalism � The Hugh Hewitt Show

Oh so many quotes to choose from in this interview with Mark Steyn...my favorites are the Obama quotes though.
HH: People have got to read the whole piece, but I’ve got to say that’s of a piece with today. You could invent things out of whole cloth. And the President, today, invented outrage at the filibuster. I want to play for you, Mark Steyn, two clips of President Obama in 2005, cut number 8:
BO: But if the right of free and open debate is taken away from the minority party, and the millions of Americans who ask us to be their voice, I fear that the already partisan atmosphere in Washington will be poisoned to the point where no one will be able to agree on anything.
HH: And here’s a second cut from 2005.
BO: Again, I urge my Republican colleagues not to go through with changing these rules. In the long run, it is not a good result for either party. One day, Democrats will be in the majority again. And this rule change will be no fairer to a Republican minority than it is to a Democratic minority.
HH: Mark Steyn, how soon we forget.
And that is the point. Progressives think we won't remember their previous passionate defense of the filibuster...but we do.
