Biden handed crushing defeat as nominee Neera Tanden withdraws

President Joe Biden and his administration have generally had an easy time with regard to getting his nominees for various Cabinet positions confirmed in the U.S. Senate, or at least headed to confirmation without much risk.

But that’s no longer the case with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) nominee Neera Tanden, who faced intense, bipartisan Senate backlash over her controversial past of being especially critical against many of them on Twitter. Tanden withdrew her own name from the running in a bombshell statement on Tuesday night. 

According to Breitbart, Tanden admitted in her statement to Biden that she believes there is “no path forward” for her to successfully be confirmed in the Senate, which ultimately is presumably a relief for the administration, as her name in the running caused quite a bit of grief.

“I am writing to you to withdraw my nomination for Director of the Office of Management and Budget. It has been an honor of a lifetime to be considered for this role and for the faith placed in me,” Tanden said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, it now seems clear that there is no path forward to gain confirmation, and I do not want continued consideration of my nomination to be a distraction from your other priorities,” she added, while thanking Biden and his administration for the work they’ve done so far for America.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), a moderate in the party, seemed to be the straw that broke the political camel’s back, as he went on record last week of indicating that he was not in favor of voting in favor of confirming Tanden to the coveted position.

“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 February, according to NPR, before announcing that he couldn’t support her because of that.

Tanden would later go on to apologize for her past remarks during a hearing with the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

Only time will tell who Biden decides to pick to replace Tanden for one of the most important and scrutinized jobs in American government and with any luck, it’ll be someone without such an obviously controversial, partisan past.
