Neera Tanden’s failed nomination shows who’s really holding the power in the Democratic Party… and it’s not Biden

3 0 3

US President Joe Biden buckled under pressure on Tuesday night, pulling Neera Tanden as his nominee to head the Office of Management and Budget. This is not unique, because every president since Bill Clinton has had at least one cabinet nominee shot down. But there are a few things that Tanden’s failed nomination does show.

First of all, it is a uniquely 21st-century problem that did for Tanden. Her aggressive tweets against some sitting senators on both sides of the aisle – many of which she tried to scrub before her confirmation hearing – essentially got her “cancelled” before she could even go up for a vote.

Second, some of the liberal media have been painting Tanden’s fall from grace as a loss for progressives. According to them, the same woman who said that the US should invade Libya and then demand their oil as payment for invading their country is apparently a progressive champion. That is a hilariously stupid take. But if they actually believe it? Well, it shows just how out of touch the media really is.

There was also a conspiracy theory floating around some Democratic Party circles, as noted by Politico late last month. According to this narrative, it was Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and this segment of the Democratic Party that put Tanden forward; Biden obliged, knowing she would fail.
