Neera Tanden reaps what she sewed: Gets massive pushback on her own nom after attacking Trump’s cabinet picks

Many times in politics, one might make a decision or take a stance when it’s politically popular, oftentimes without the forethought to wonder if that stance or decision could come back to haunt one at a later time.

According to the Daily Caller, that’s precisely the situation that Neera Tanden, a former White House aide under Bill Clinton and president of the Center for American Progress, is facing as she fights to stay alive as President Joe Biden’s nominee to head up the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).ย 

Given her unbelievable number of critical tweets and other social media posts aimed at Republicans in the past, the odds of many Senate Republicans getting on board with her confirmation were already lower than the Biden administration would have liked.

Adding to that, Tanden has been reminded of a pledge she made during Trump’s years in office when she was “proud to fight” to block Trump’s nominee for U.S. Attorney General and that CAP, the organization she runs, was prepared to fight hard to block Trump’s nominee for U.S. Secretary of Education.

Making matters even worse for Tanden and Biden is the fact that recently, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) — a vote that Biden was certainly counting on — publicly announced that he couldn’t get behind Tanden’s confirmation, citing her controversial online past.

“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,” Manchin said recently.

Given the 50-50 split in the Senate at the moment, Biden needs every Democrat to vote on a party line for his nominees, considering how Republicans are likely to use what remaining power they retain to block nominees.

Though Tanden has apologized — to some degree — for the comments she’s made about Republicans in the past, it might not matter, considering Manchin’s dissent.

  1. I’m sooooo happy to see SOME Dems have atleast 1/2 a brain. When you make disparaging comments about a whole political party without thinking that MAYBE you might have to get some kind of support from that party at a later date, then you deserve to have repercussions come around and “bite you in the butt”. It’s just like Biden is seeing now that just a blanket effort to undo ALL Trump policies without any kind of a “plan” for the after results, is totally idiotic, and the obvious results are showing just that. The cancellation of all the Trump policies are being done out of hatred for Trump and not for the actual benefit of ANY U.S. citizens. If you can call it a “good result”, but members of their own party are feeling the results of their hatred and dumb decisions and realizing just how good Trump actually was and just may change their voting strategy!

    1. he doesn’t care if he destroys America! Thats his pLAN. He will replace Americans with ILLEGALS who will cater to him and vote for him in exchange for their free Citizenship. Let me tell you–America is NOT FREE anymore under this communism and censorship

    2. Democrats will never change their political acts of tyranny. Their soul purpose in life is absolute power because, they believe it is their birthright, and to hell with GOD and the American people, and the very principles of our nation’s Founding Fathers!

      Now that the street level Democrats have figured out that they benefited from President Trump , and now he is out of office , it’s too late isn’t it ? Rather reminds me of the saying , ” We grow to soon old , and too late smart ! ” Boy ! Doesn’t that apply to the average Democrat ??
      I am so angry at the gross stupidity of the Democrat followers that I could spit nails !!

  2. She and then others think we can just โ€œunhearโ€ at our expense. Nope! We have great memories. Remember that!!
    Dumb DemonCrapRats AND RHINOโ€™s!

  3. Well, the Democrats that voted for Biden are getting exactly what they asked for. He should be impeached, today. He is destroying American and then go for Harris, right on down the line. Pelosi is up to her tricks again, trying to get stimulus checks only to federal employees and the illegal aliens. Just to be able to win their votes, when they can vote. It was great under Trump that put America first. Biden is putting America last. Time for all of them to go.

    1. Samuel Meachem ,
      The problem is that Democrats are not going anywhere. For one thing they are smart. They have infiltrated and inundated America from top to bottom and from coast to coast. In 1917 , V. Lenin instigated a revolution in Russia that ruined Russia for his own personal gain ! Today there are hundreds like Lenin that are elites of the Democrat Party that are intending to destroy America for their own personal gain. There is no way to vote them out. Only the one finger vote from from 1760 yards will get rid of them .

  4. Joe Manchin always says he won’t back certain people and certain Bill, and then he goes ahead and backs them. He always fools Republicans into thinking he’s a moderate when he’s not. He’s a Progressive Democrat just like all the rest. The Republicans are fools to believe anything he says.

  5. GOOD! SHE NEEDS TO GO. THEY ALWAYS APOLOGIZE AFTER THEY GET CALLED ON THE CARPET SO TO SAY. SHE IS DOING JUST EXACTLY THE WAY ALL THE DEMOCRAPS DO. BIG MOUTHS AND THEN FORGET THAT THESE REMARKS GET THEIR BIG MOUTHS IN THEIR BOWELS. GET RID OF HER AND MORE DESPICABLE DEMOCRAPS!

  6. Apology? Probably only to save her political career versus sincere!
    Hopefully more democrats will see her hypocrisy and lack of expertise for the job.
    Thank you Senator Manchin, your insight and wisdom is a welcome to the aisle of meeting together/bipartisanship ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Exactly. It is an apology for the purpose of political expediency. “Checked that block. Next” There isn’t a nanodrop of sincerity behind it. Good Post, Sharon. You nailed the facade behind her apology.
