Could this be the end of the road for Neera Tanden? Biden’s controversial pick to lead the Office of Management and Budget has hit another roadblock on her path to confirmation. The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) and Budget Committees each abruptly postponed meetings where they were scheduled to vote on Tanden.
Tanden has come under intense scrutiny for past comments made about both Republican and Democrat members of Congress. Not only did Tanden disrespect current members but she also went back and deleted thousands of incendiary tweets, which many see as an admission of guilt.
Fox News reports:
Tanden’s nomination was on shaky ground ahead of the scheduled committee votes after Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and many Republicans said they would oppose her nomination last week. Now it’s thrown further into doubt by the cancellation of the two committee votes.
“I have carefully reviewed Neera Tanden’s public statements and tweets that were personally directed towards my colleagues on both sides of the aisle from Senator Sanders to Senator McConnell and others,” Manchin said. “I believe her overtly partisan statements will have a toxic and detrimental impact on the important working relationship between members of Congress and the next director of the Office of Management and Budget.”
Fox News asked the White House if it had withdrawn Tanden’s nomination. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki responded with a statement lauding Tanden.
“Neera Tanden is a leading policy expert who brings critical qualifications to the table during this time of unprecedented crisis,” Psaki said. “She also has important perspective and values, understanding firsthand the powerful difference policy can make in the lives of those going through hard times. She has a broad spectrum of support, ranging from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to labor unions, and has a strong record of working with both parties that we expect to grow in President Biden’s cabinet as the first South Asian woman to lead OMB.”
Multiple committee members such as Joe Manchin(D-WV), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Rob Portman (R-OH) have already confirmed they will oppose Tanden’s confirmation.
they need time to rig the vote
Funny, but no way to rig a Senate vote. Looks like a loss for Biden on this one. Let’s hope that becomes a streak.
All these cork soakers are going to be toast. The deep state is deep but they are a small pile of nothing when We The People decide to Cancel the bums.
Well, we better make that decision pretty damn quick…
Well didn’t we try to cancel Biden in tbe election…a good 74 million and probably 80 million if fraud didn’t steal them from Trump. What I’m saying is we the people lost big time. We failed big time to cancel any dem bum.The deep state, msm, FBI DOJ and even the SCOTUS has complete control no matter what we do.
‘Jinn-sake will be permanently ‘circling around’ this one…ya think?
UNFIT FOR OFFICE, that’s pretty simple, like hidenbiden, is unfit,unstable, an embarrassment,as the leader=in=chief, and u installed this laughing joke, to destroy the country, well he’s doing a great job of it.
She didn’t have the full payment, had to turn a couple tricks to pay the bill
Joe Manchin is not to be trusted.
But I’ll take him over most of the other Democrats in either House. At least he is not afraid to do his own thing on occasion, and is not in lockstep with what the leadership demands.
Turn the dot on her forehead into a laser beam.
She disrespected current members”? That’s a bad thing? Almost the ENTIRE House of Representatives and Senate are comprised of “OONS!” (They are either Buffoons, or Poltroons) There must be some other point of incompetence that’s holding her back,Blatant partisanship only makes her become more of a Dem. I forget who it was that sadi, “My mother thinks I play piano in a whorehouse; it would break her heart if she learned that I’d sunk to politics.” .
All of the above the above should be rejected for being deleterious to the interests of the United States of America. Why are we discounting there incompetence and/or anti-national philosophy to perpetuate an imbecile man’s desire for gender identity being the ruling factor rather than the interest of the NATION.
Poor decision making by the liberal left in November should not be glorified with poorer decision by the last Stand America can take to avoid annihilation – the Senate Confirmation Process.
