Obama Praises Filibuster Changes

Well, of course, it gets him what he wants

President Obama hailed the Senate's move to gut the minority party's filibuster powers, saying it would end obstruction in the upper chamber.

In an appearance at the White House, Obama argued the Senate GOP's recent use of the filibuster was not normal and was never intended by the nation's founders.

He said "enough is enough" and applauded Senate Democrats for changing the body's rules to prevent a filibuster on nominations other than to the Supreme Court.
