Obama's Invisible Czar Bureaucracy

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

What's wrong with Obama's czars? There're unelected, unaccountable and throw off the constitutional system of checks and balances.

Republicans and some Democrats are complaining that there are too many so-called czars in the Obama administration, and now the Senate Health committee even is proposing a health care czar to oversee the overhaul of the system.

By some accounts, Obama has nearly three dozen czars in his administration, managing everything from closing the Guantanamo Bay detention facility to ending the genocide in Darfur.

"The accumulation of power by White House staff can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances," Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W. Va., wrote in a letter to Obama.

Rep. Jack Kington, R-Ga., promised legislation to address what he's call a "parallel government" that he says diminishes the Senate advice and consent role.

And then there is the very questionable quality of Obama's appointments. If you can't get your wacky friends elected, appoint them by presidential order! Standby for Bill Ayres appointment to Obama's party government . . .

Obama's “Green Czar” is an admitted Communist with arrest record

In little reported 'slap in the face' move, President Obama has put an admitted communist and former criminal in charge of creating 'green jobs.'

From New Zeal:

A few short years ago Anthony (Van) Jones was a Bay Area radical agitator-a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, waging war on the police and capitalist system.

According to the White House Blog March :

The White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Chair Nancy Sutley announced yesterday that Van Jones – an early green jobs visionary -- will start Monday as Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at CEQ:

This is getting way out of hand. Whatever has happened to Obama's cabinet? Has he put them out of business yet?

Why are people putting the whole "czar" thing squarely on Obama? I'm not saying I disagree with you, but people seem to forget that President Bush used the same title when appointing his "War Czar", apparently a patsy to take the fall for the Secretary of Defense if the troop "surge" in Iraq of 2006 was a failure...

@Anon
I'm pretty sure that Bush's Czars were a little different than Obama's.

Obama has appointed at least 32 Czars to circumvent the unpredictable process of election and congressional approval. I can guarantee that cooks like Van Jones (Green Jobs), John Holdren (Science) and Kevin Jennings (Safe Schools) would have never passed any democratic process.

What do you think? Avowed communists, a school teacher that promoted homosexuality and lewd books to children, and a "scientist" promoting forced sterilization and abortion. Do you think it was right for Obama to slip these radicals into his administration through the back door?
