Senate signals opposition to Biden’s OMB nominee Neera Tanden

Democrats might have the upper-hand in the U.S Senate, but that power is on shaky ground, as President Joe Biden realized this week that simply one Democrat breaking with the party on a Cabinet nomination can throw a major wrench into the proverbial gears.

According to Breitbart, Neera Tanden, Biden’s controversial nominee to fill the role as the head of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) might not land the coveted gig after all, as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has signaled that he will not be voting in favor of confirming her. 

It was on Friday that Manchin shook up the White House with his bombshell announcement saying that he doesn’t feel like voting in favor of confirming her is the right move, citing her past history on social media as one of his primary concerns.

“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 in a statement.

Of course, the first rule of hardball politics is to never admit defeat, so when Biden found out about Manchin’s statement during a flight on Air Force One, he told reporters when he landed that he’ll move forward with Tanden as his nominee, expressing confidence that he’ll find a way to make her appointment happen.

“I think we’re going to find the votes to get her confirmed,” Biden said.

The White House immediatley backed the president’s confidence in a statement praising Tanden’s record, suggesting that she’s a perfect fit for the job and that they’ll continue to push to see that she’s nominated.

“Neera Tanden is an accomplished policy expert who would be an excellent Budget Director and we look forward to the committee votes next week and to continuing to work toward her confirmation through engagement with both parties,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

If Manchin sticks to his guns, that means the White House will have no choice but to engage in some political horse-trading across the aisle with at least one Republican who would be open to voting for Tanden’s confirmation.

If they take that road, it’ll certainly be interesting to see which Republican thinks they have the political street cred to eventually overcome the inevitable party backlash from siding with the White House on the matter.

    1. It is sad what is happening to our country with the Officials being elected by evil communist mostly so many immigrants being aloud to vote when they don’t even know who they are voting and don’t care when the Demorats pay them and fraud them to vote.
      It is coming to tiemwhen good America people don’t even vote anymore as whats the use when we have an evil Party that area shading radial communist. some of our good American even go along with some of this evil and vilence. So SAD and PITIFUL.

      1. Initially I was so angry and discouraged I considered never voting again. But I realized that’s exactly the response Democrats are hoping for and for that reason, I will continue to vote. Hopefully before the 2024 presidential election the system will become more trustworthy.

      2. Your spelling in this statement gave me quite the headache trying to read and understand what you were trying to say.
        Although I do agree with the statement and the point you made ! “WOW”

        1. It makes me upset that people do not ‘proof read’ their articles – leaving us trying to figure out what they are saying.

    2. BUT this is NOT a good leader—this administration doesn’t care what it does or how it affects you or the American people. That has been proven with the thousands of jobs that he has destroyed and his opening the border to thousands of illegals with numerous diseases. Are you going to house them and feed them, give them what they want? No this administration has to go one way or another before this country can’t be saved.

    3. Biden is absolutely NOT a good leader, I would say definitely a BAD leader, unless you want to destroy America !!!!!!

  1. Biden is a dementia fool! Can’t stand to look at him! Election was not his!!cheating by democrats is by democrats obvious!

    1. The Dems did not win the election! They all stole the election and committed fraud across the entire U.S.. The Dems in my opinion are nothing more then communist and dirt bags, including the execs in the High Tech Industry!

      1. I agree. Wish this site had a thumbs up/down icon. At any rate, the dems cheat and commit fraud on a grand scale.

    2. Please, dementia is a real illness that devastates millions across the globe. The truth is that bidenbiden has no soul; if you look at his eyes, he is an empty person. The only thing that bidenbiden understands is how he can fatten his wallet via illegitimate means. He’s a thief because he steals American values and tosses them aside. Honesty is an unknow virtue to this crabby, nasty, old man.

    1. The Democrats can always count on Romney, he is a true Democrat at heart. Always willing to kiss the excrement orifice of our enemy.

    2. Romney if a RINO. The only way he got elected in Utah was by being a Republican. Democrat might have lost. He got the votes because he is a Mormon. My neighbor who is a Mormon agreed.

  2. The Democrats can’t handle anything they need to change their name from the Democrat party to Ringling Brothers the biggest show of ignorance on Earth Biden and Harris along with the house and the Senate and Congress or the clowns coming in the car they said the circus who did it just moved to the Democrat party

    1. Ringling Bros Circus gave many of us children pleasant memories and fun times. Therefore, I would fight the dimbocraps if they ever tried to rename themselves Ringling Bros. Now, if they wanted to rename themselves as the swirling logs with a toilet logo, I could accept that.

    1. I agree but that would be a tough switch.. There’s generations of Manchin tradition in the Democrat party. I actually worked with his grandfather a bit in the early 1970 and he proudly kept on his office wall a picture of himself with JFK.. At that point, I’d been through the Goldwater campaign, college, served as a Marine in ‘Nam and was a solid conservative but.. we both loved the country and could disagree amicably. Today, that’s no longer possible in Washington (which I left twenty years ago). I suspect that Joes challenge is that his party has left him just like that lady in Ohio says it had left her.

      1. The Democratic party today is a far cry from the party of JFK. JFK was a patriot. The current Democrat party is not. Manchin knows that, I am sure.

        1. JFK was never who he said he was and is a very big reason I am not a democrat today. Kennedy compound is a short distance from New Bedford MA is a disaster today as it was in 1962. Never saw a Kennedy in town. The only project JRK ever contracted for New Bedford MA was the harbor hurricane dike and it was to help his buddies in Boston, which approx. 50 miles away. The LA times in late 60’s early 70’s did a column the 300 worst cities to live in and Detroit, Flint and New Bedford would change places each week for spot 300. The city is still being ignored by Democrats today. It is mostly Portuguese and Democrats don’t score many points helping them.

          1. Mr. Hawes, you may not have liked JFK or even RFK. The fact is many of us loved those two guys and we knew they weren’t perfect–who is? John and Robert cared about this nation, that’s why so many still love the guys. They didn’t deserve what was dealt to them and the ones who took their lives were nothing more than cowards.

          2. Kennedy was not a patriot. He was a whore hopper and without morals whatsoever. Sick in head and heart just as his party is today. If he could have had his way he would have sold the country to the UN in 1962. Those democrat values started the first civil war and their plans include starting another one. Their ideas on slavery are the same. Beware! The dragon speaks for these America hating communist as always. Our founding fathers despised democracy and it’s mob rule. Our constitution article 4 section 4 states this; “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republican form of Government. The dirty rotten democrats have from their beginning done everything to get rid of anything Republican.. Democracy is dirty rotten and delusional.

          3. JFK may or may not have been who he said he was, but he was still a better President than Biden or Harris could ever dream or hope of being.

        2. Imagine what JFK and his brother, RFK, would say to the dimbocraps today. I’m sure the language would be dicey and the current party members would immensely dislike the verbiage they would be pounded with.

          1. They would by their nature join right in with their comrades. Don’t deceive yourself..

  3. Pollty, you must be suffering from the same dementia disease as pedophile Joe! How does it feel to know you voted for a pedophile with dementia? ROFLMAO!

  4. President Trump will be at CPAC. This should be a great event. We need our President back to undo the damage biden has done in less than one month.

    1. Yes – we do need to get our President back – so he can RE-DO what ‘old Biden’ has already done to destroy our country.

  5. I do not understand why the Democrats aren’t considered treasonous to this country. They are taking away are constitutional rights, destroying this country and selling us off. Why would this be allowed to go on under a new political administration. How are there not safeguards to this. People just close their eyes to all the deceit. I love my country and believe in all those people who gave their rights so that we can live free, shame!

  6. Biden has proven that he has a serious problem, and needs to take a mental test, as he is showing that he does not have the mental acuity necessary to do the job, and he is doing more damage to the country than Obama did.

  7. WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

    1. JDavis951 ,
      I have been wondering why the GOP allowed the Democrats to e the ones to acquire the Dominion voting machines and then have the machines be programmed to favor a Democrat vote. Why did the GOP allow only Democrat vote counters and tabulators ? Republicans being relegated to being observers and then shooed to the far side of the vote counting room or even out into the hallways. WHY ? Was this a joint fix by both parties ? The election of 2020 smells to the high heavens.
      There is more that I noticed on a personal level . Last summer , I happened to drive past the local Democrat headquarters at 2 A.M. one Sunday morning and the lights were on , the door was open and it was in operation. Later , on a different day , on a weekday afternoon , I drove past the Republican headquarters and it was CLOSED , no one there. I drove past the Republican headquarters several times at different times of day. I never saw it to be open. The Democrats obviously wanted the election ! The Republicans ??? Meec , maybe not so much ? Is there something wrong here ?

      1. The problem is the Rhinos and the money they earn by supporting big business, most of these people are lawyers and have never learned to work for a living besides DC. Voters forget to easy how these people that suppose to represent them, are there only for themselves to enrich themselves and ignore the folks that put them there. The problem with the election 2020 was that the republican party was afraid that Pres Trump would be succesful and drain the swamp. McConnell worked against Trump any chance he had ,just look at his speech after Trump managed again to beat impeachment proceedings again. Remember those people like McConnell in 2022 and send them packing. Help drain the swamp ,put new people in that will work for us and the wellbeing of the USA

      2. Donald – I Agree with you – Could someone seriously explain to me WHY Only the Democrats are in Control of the Elections??? – Like Vote Counting, etc. – WHY are Republicans Being Excluded and Treated so Unfairly??? – It is Super Easy for the Snakes to Commit Voter Fraud – because they are in Charge of the Voting – They Commit Voter Fraud in Every Election – Why do we allow this??? – something should be done about this Injustice – I’m waiting for an answer!!

    2. Having done all that and all you get is a clerk who says they will give your message to the right person…I’ll bet

    1. God has a plan and Biden has walked back into. When he talks about the Iran deal, Israel will be in their way. So if you read the book of Revelation chapter 17 and 18 it will tell you what will happen.

  8. Be sure to watch the 2 hour “ABSOLUTE PROOF” documentary on the election fraud!!!I have limited funds and no money available to contribute. However: HOW CAN MITCH MCCONNELL, MITT ROMNEY, THE SUPREME COURT (and others) BE SO BLIND AND IGNORANT?IT IS “INTUITIVELY CLEAR TO EVEN THE MOST CASUAL OBSERVER” THAT THIS ELECTION WAS FRAUGHT WITH FRAUD TO OVERRIDE THE LEGITIMATE VOTES!!!! FURTHERMORE; THE SENATE AND HOUSE WERE DERELICT IN THEIR DUTY TO VERIFY ALL LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE COUNTED, AND ENSURE THAT ALL NON-LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE REJECTED!!!!I fully support President Donald J Trump, recognize he truly loves this country and stands firmly for what is right, for the Constitution and for We The People of The United States of America. There is a very huge silent majority who recognizes that We as well as He are under attack by the radical left. Democ’rats. (Which is what the Democrat Party needs to be renamed as that name accurately reflects their Attitude and Hate for all that is good for our nation.) Democ’rats should never be referred to as being the Democratic Party, because there isn’t anything in their platform or conduct that indicates they adhere to Democratic principles. Anyone who refers to them as being Democratic or being The Democratic Party is either ignorant or lacks even an ounce of intelligence. Just make sure as Republican members/candidates for the Senate and House you will fully support and stand with President Donald J Trump, truly love this country and stand firmly for what is right for the Constitution and We The People of The United States of America. If you do, I am confident the huge silent majority will elect/retain you to represent them. DO IT!

  9. I agree! I have been telling people it’s time to stop talking and commenting on social media and do something. This cannot continue on for four years. 74+ million votes were cast aside and these bastards stole the office of the President. If we sit back and just talk we are finished. The way things are going right now, our first and second amendment rights will be stripped from us. We absolutely must realize these communist hate our constitution given by the founding fathers. In will not be surprised in the least if they publicly burn the constitution and declaration on the capital steps. Freedom loving people AWAKE! Our nation is is terrible trouble and if we continue on this route we are finished and slavery is next on the agenda. Are people so blind! Do people have ears to hear. Biden stated on January 20th. that they now have a communist government and should have had it years ago. I am amazed that so few people didn’t hear those words. Blind and deft. The gross sins against God and nature had taken place for more than 5 decades with the legalization of murder of the unborn in the name of liberty. On May 26th. 2015 Sodomites were turned loose with all the perversions that goes with it. We are being judged for our sowing to the wind and now comes the whirlwind. The eternal law of sowing and reaping cannot be circumvented by saint nor sinner. Wake up People, WAKE UP.

  10. I call my Senator & Congress Person everyday, I leave my message & have never got a call back but that is ok I have two Dems. I deal with. We need to keep doing this till we blow up the phone lines & they realize we mean business! Does anyone know of a phone number we could call & reach them all? I’m ready to take my country back from these treasonous criminals snakes!!

  11. It wasn’t until the results of the election came in that I thought “this election was rigged”. At midnight Trump had won. Between midnight and early in the morning, all incoming votes (it should be noted it was after the polls closed and it was illegal to enter additional votes) were for Biden. Enough to overcome Trump’s record-breaking 75 million. Doesn’t it seem strange, the “system” in several states allowed these illegal votes to be counted? In addition, if Trump had 75 million, or even only 70 million, there’s still a problem. There were only 141 registered voters. So if Biden got 81 million as claimed, that meant there was 156 million, or 151 million (if Trump only had 70 million) NOT 141 MILLION REGISTERED. The problem is the democrats controlling almost all the voting booths cheated, and they didn’t care who knew it. DOJ, Circuit Court Judges, FBI, Supreme Court, it didn’t matter they were all run by the deep state. The media belongs to big business and the democrats. So it was rigged.
