At this weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference, Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) suggested that everything that went wrong during the first two years of President Obama's term must be laid at his feet because Obama "got everything he wanted" from Congress while both houses were controlled by Democrats.

As the video also reminds these Republicans, however, there's one giant problem with their talking point — the Senate GOP's unprecedented abuse of the filibuster. Indeed, the number of votes attempting to break Sen. McConnell's use of this tactic more than doubled the minute he took over as minority leader.
