Jen Psaki: Neera Tanden Is Asian American, A Woman, Has "Lived Experience" --- But What About...?

It looks like Neera Tanden’s bid to head the OMB may be facing some real challenges. Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin came right out and said that he couldn’t support her nomination.

The Biden administration though has decided to push forward with Tanden, regardless. Surely with Jen Psaki blessing of her qualities, it’s a done deal?  Right?

Wow. She’s an “Asian American woman” with “lived experience”!

That’s all that’s required surely.  “Asian American woman” AND “lived experience”?  But there are still some skeptics out there who maybe want a little more… like qualifications for the job?

And, as @ComfortablySmug points out, they just don’t seem to be up to that task:

Jen Psaki was most eloquent in her tweet,  but she never explained why Neera Tanden should head the OMB.

Qualified for the job?  When did that matter in this administration.

Exactly.

It seems to be that qualifications for the job are still important to some people.

We look forward to seeing them try.
