Joe Biden kicked off his Presidency by promising “unity.”
But his actions show he’s only interested in promoting Left-Wing policies and personalities.
And now, the mask is coming off as one top Biden nominee exposes the President’s “unity” charade.
Joe Biden has finally admitted what most of the American people had already known was true.
The President’s efforts to establish “unity” were little more than a political stunt, with no concrete evidence of Biden or key officials in his administration actually attempting to extend an olive branch to Republicans on Capitol Hill, or in communities across much of the country who had overwhelmingly voted against him.
Now, as the President marks his first month in office, it’s clear that the “unity” charade is finally coming to an end, with Biden abandoning all pretenses of actually seeking common ground with his political adversaries.
But it was obvious almost from the start that this was always the case.
Biden and his team has routinely put out statements, press releases, and public promises that they wished to govern like centrists, but the policy choices, administration officials, and cabinet nominees the President has surrounded himself with are anything but centrists in their views.
Biden’s nominee for the Department of the Interior openly supports the Green New Deal, while his nominee for the Department of Health and Human Services has no record of actually working in public health, instead sporting a long record of launching political attacks on Catholic nuns and pro-Life activists.
Yet it’s Biden’s nominee to run the Office of Management and Budget that showed the American people just how little Biden’s team cares about “unity.”
The President’s choice to lead the agency is Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, a left-wing think tank with a record of publicly using “language that could be construed as anti-Israel or even anti-Semitic.”
The Center for American Progress has come under severe fire in the past for more than just its anti-Israeli stances however, but also its pro-Saudi Arabian political bent, and its failure to handle sexual harassment allegations.
Yet it was Tanden’s own record of personally attacking her political rivals in a way that crossed the line which illustrated how hypocritical Biden’s talk of “unity” truly was.
For a President who criticized Donald Trump for his Twitter account, Biden mysteriously chose to nominate someone to run the Office of Management and Budget who felt the need to delete over 1,000 tweets of her own.
These tweets included comparing Senator Ted Cruz to being a vampire and references to “Moscow Mitch”, a bogus conspiracy theory that Senator Mitch McConnell was a Russian asset working with Putin to undermine the United States.
Tanden, a former Clinton ally, even used her Twitter account to attack figures to her left, with Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) stated during her confirmation hearings that she “called Senator Sanders everything but an ignorant slut.”
Tanden’s nomination has proven to be so toxic in fact that other Democrats are even publicly opposing her nomination, with West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin being the first to state that he will not vote to confirm her.
Manchin’s decision, combined with growing opposition from even the most liberal of Senate Republicans such as Mitt Romney and Susan Collins, means that Tanden’s nomination appears to be all but over, along with Biden’s half-hearted attempts to begin his Presidency with “unity.”
