One reason the GOP does so well is their unwillingness to give an inch and their unhesitating changing of rules when they can and the Democrats never changing those rules back adequately when they get the chance. The Democrats always look feckless and the Republicans capitalize on it. Bold agenda whittled sown to innocuousness and negotiated into 2022, when the off year elections start heating up. The polls show Biden getting weaker. The question is, is the public willing to allow Republicans to get stronger or allow Biden's administration to limp forward?
