Neera Tanden is officially out as Joe Biden’s nominee for management and budget, which means one thing: Republicans did it to make sure no one who started a crazy Twitter feud or said anything significant about lawmakers will ever occupy a position of power in the United States government And ponder how close we have come to the high-minded, decent, and bourgeois discourse that Washington is famous for, tainted by a partisan who once talked to Mitch McConnell with the villain in a children’s book has compared
Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, has been on the ropes for weeks, especially after Conservative Democrat Joe Manchin announced he would not vote to validate her, which meant Biden would have to lure in some Republican defectors But the final straw could have come Tuesday when the White House realized that the moderate Republican they were campaigning for, Alaska-based Lisa Murkowski, would likely not endorse Tanden without some sort of government concessions on energy policy, which her colleague John Thune from South Dakota had described reporters as “very detrimental” to her condition
That was a no-go for the White House, as Politico reported, and Biden accepted Tanden’s letter, which was withdrawn from review, “I don’t want the continued consideration of my nomination to be a distraction from your other priorities”She wrote, admitting that there appeared to be no way forward to get validation a ????” I have the greatest respect for her performance, experience, and advice”Biden said in his own statement,” I look forward to her playing a role in my administration”â ????
What that role will be and who will be nominated to head the OMB for Tandens is not yet clear. According to Politico, the Democrats are currently split between three potential competitors: Shalanda Young, who should serve as Tandens number two; Ann Oâ ???? Leary, a former aide to Hillary Clinton and more recently the contested California Governor Gavin Newsom; and Sarah Bianchi, a former old Biden economic advisor. As for the Republicans, it is believed they scour all three of their Twitter feeds to make sure none of them compared Ted Cruz to a vampire ” ??
The irony of the situation in which Republicans claimed to be scandalized by Tandens tweets after ignoring the deranged missives that Donald Trump blew up daily for the past four years is virtually no lost to anyone in one combative asshole being online turns white guys like Trump and some of his nominees into “fighters” But lamenting Susan Collins’ recklessness makes a woman, especially a woman of color like Tanden, “radioactive” as a Republican senator, John Cornyn described them last month “You should be judged by time.” A White House official told PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor Shit tweeted It’s just amazing that people can’t separate thatâ ????
