Democrats are "not here to filibuster Bolton..."
Followed by Bill Frist calling the failed cloture motion a filibuster (because it is).
"This is the first filibuster that's been conducted in this Congress"
What is a filibuster?
The use of obstructionist tactics, especially prolonged speechmaking, for the purpose of delaying legislative action.
When a bunch of Democrats vote against a motion to end debate of Mr. Bolton it's a filibuster. Reid later admits as much. How many filibusters do you think there have been in the 109th congress? Take bets. I'm hitting the congressional records.
