    No, it was that Biden started out faster than Dump. But Dump was actually VERY successful with confirmations. He had 54 circuit judge appointments in one term, Obama had 55 in two. And of course he got 3 vs 2 SCOTUS because McConnell just flat out stole one. Dump has the highest number of appointments per day in office of any president since Jimmy Carter, because by the middle of Obama Mitch had simply blockaded democracy. The Nazis have been planning their takeover for a long time.

    To give you an idea of how long the Dump stain will last unless we start impeaching them, there are 4 incumbent federal judges who were appointed by Richard Nixon.

We need to fill EVERY vacancy with the farthest Left judge who can get through confirmation yesterday. If we can get to a reasonably sane majority in the Senate then we can bring the federal judiciary back into true over night. There are 75 current vacancies with 41 known future vacancies. We could fill them all virtually over night and begin rolling back Nazism.
    Are not all of these judgeships lifetime appointments? A little confused on the known future vacancies, unless they’ve announced they’re leaving the bench. So 13% of the judiciary is either vacant or going to be. That’s astounding on top of what they’ve already filled.

    I mean, most likely, that will happen anyways when the new Congress is there no matter who is in charge. The 1/6 Commission should be done before the Midterms.

    They will likely try and Impeach Biden and do a bunch of "Hunter Biden" investigations but that won't go anywhere.

    First of all things are not trending for the Red Wave that the media keeps telling us is a lock. Last week the generic ballot showed the Dems with the advantage (usual caveat here about polling sucking and the generic ballot is nothing more than a plot point really) going from like 4 points down to 2 points up and that was before Trump's problems. I am not saying the GOP won't take the House but it is not a guarantee anymore and considering all they are running on is "Women Are Incubators", "Defund the FBI", "2020 Was Stolen" and "Gay People Are Ruining Books and Children" they are having issues. That stuff works when the economy is tanking, gas is ridiculous and unemployment is high...otherwise people tend to ignore the culture war bs no matter who is doing it.

    But if they do take the House...then Kepler is correct.

    The likeliest current reason they’re cutting back is lack of fundraising. Now having read the article, looks like it’s the campaign arms that are cutting advertising, and they also pay full freight. There’s a possibility these campaign arms will attempt joint ads to split costs, but from the little I’ve read, that’s tricky. Basically, there is no positive reason the GOP would cut funding for these states.
    There has been rumors floating around that the GOP is having issues fundraising going back to before the Trump melodrama. Now he is sucking all of the money up for his grift. Plus, even though they are all fellating him even when he changes his lies mid-story their polling isn't going up. Rubio is showing that as are a few others.

    There was a reason the party wanted Trump nowhere near the Midterms, between that and Dodds (plus the economy seemingly rebounding) the GOP went from a stone cold cake walk to a lot of problems all at once.

    We also push through a bunch of great bills in the Senate and force the Nazis to vote them down. Get them on the record for their decrepit and inhumane agenda.
