When a big-time goof is elected president of the United States, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he surrounds himself with fellow lifelong screwups. In fact, it should be expected.
But what Joe Biden is doing is completely beyond the pale. He knows he’s nominating bad people to high positions – he just doesn’t care.
At least one good thing that happened on Tuesday afternoon: Saule Omarova, a woman many believe is a Marxist, will not become the next comptroller of the currency.
From The Daily Wire:
Saule Omarova, Democrat President Joe Biden’s nominee for comptroller of the currency, has withdrawn her name from consideration for the position after facing increasing opposition to nomination over allegations that she was a Marxist.
In a statement, Omarova noted: “I am writing to you today with a request to withdraw my candidacy from further consideration for the position of the U.S. Comptroller of the Currency. It was a great honor and a true privilege to be nominated by President Biden to lead the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency overseeing the U.S. national banking system.”
She added that it she withdrew her name from consideration because “at this point in the process … it is no longer tenable for me to continue as a Presidential nominee.”
Omarova, who was born in Kazakhstan when it was a part of the Soviet Union, received intense bipartisan opposition from U.S. Senators as she sought to be confirmed.
