Joe Biden caves to left in filibuster fight; Democrats put holdouts on hot seat – Washington Times

I can only think that they have full confidence in their ability to fix elections. But the logic in protecting the rights of the minority has nothing to do with fair play. It is a realization that at some point you could find yourself in the minority subject to the rules you put in place when you were top dog. You would think politicians had learned this lesson after the filibuster was eliminated for judges it just gave President Trump virtual Carte Blanche in filling the dozens of vacancies on the courts-including the Supreme Court-with conservative judges. But the thing about the current crop of Democrats is that for all their power they are unimaginative, short sighted, and stupid. That is why they will lose big in ’22 and even bigger in ’24.

President Biden staked out new ground in the battle over the filibuster this week, saying for the first time publicly that he supported changing the practice to make it tougher for a minority of senators to block legislation. He didn’t embrace calls to do away with the filibuster altogether, but he backed what’s become known as the “talking filibuster,” a throwback idea that would require those who want to derail a bill to have to actually hold the chamber floor. The old-style filibuster — with a senator talking for hours on end, sometimes to the point of physical exhaustion — was the standard in the Senate for most of the 20th century until the rules were loosened in the 1970s.
