There is rarely a communist Democrat that neither Willard Rat Romney nor Susan Collins would vote to confirm. But Biden OMB nominee Neera Tanden, a nasty, full on communist is so bad that they wouldn’t even vote to confirm her. With phony Manchin last week claiming he wouldn’t vote for her, it now basically comes down to what the other GOP clowns like Pat Toomey, Lisa Murkowski and Ben sASSe do.
The wheels on the Biden short-bus keep falling off.

The nomination of Neera Tanden to head the powerful Office of Management and Budget appears increasingly imperiled, with Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney and Utah, both Republicans, announcing on Monday morning that they would vote against the nominee.
The growing opposition has less to do with Tanden’s liberal outlook than her avid Twitter use. And it comes after a four-year debate about whether then-President Donald Trump’s tweets were to be treated as a distraction, provocation or his way of announcing policy.
Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a centrist Democrat, had earlier indicated that he too would vote against Tanden. Manchin also cited Tanden’s tweets as a major reason to vote against her.
Those developments leave little wiggle room in an evenly divided Senate and could make Tanden — who heads the liberal Center for American Progress and is a longtime Clinton ally — the first failed Biden Cabinet nomination.
At issue is Tanden’s storied legacy of incendiary tweets, which have frequently criticized and mocked Trump, congressional Republicans and progressives like Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. In doing so, her tweets have complicated the new administration’s stated goal of returning Washington to pre-Trumpian norms of civility.
