Why does Mr. Obama have so many Czars?

Kara ~~~ American Patriot 2009/08/13 20:34:54
The Senate has not control over Czars.
Obama should be creating jobs instead of Czars.
Having Czars is unconstitutional.

Obama has now appointed over three dozen Czars and Czarinas. Do you believe that they are unconstitutional?

Considering that Czars only answer to Obama, are not Congressionally approved, plus have access to more then $1.7 Trillion, we should all be seriously concerned. I have learned that Czars as Obama calls them, men and women, are unconstitutional because they are not elected by American citizens; moreover, they do not answer to the Congress.. Why does Mr. Obama feel a need to have so many? Besides, the Czars that BO has appointed have sordid, radical, non-conventional pasts. In addition, the Czars, which we are paying for, only fit into his radical pattern of divisive, questionable associations. I am against any President employing full-time or part-Czars. All a POTUS really needs are part-time consultants, and his Administration. I believe that Obama has an innate desire for complete power.

    Plain and simple! It's unconstitutional per Article II, sec 2:

    To wit:
    "He shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law."

    When you have a clueless community organizer playing President of the United States, he needs advise. Unfortunately he chose whackos like maoists, socialists, communists and Hugo Chavez lovers as his confidants. Van Jones is now gone - admitted Communist. Anita Dunn - Maoist has joined a law firm but is keeping an office at the white house - Is'nt this a conflict of interest?

    NOT ME!!!!! I saw through him like i did when raising my kids. They, nor him couldn't pull the wool over my eyes. You always have to stay a step ahead and have eyes in the back of your head. Do research ,watch fox news and learn the truth. This is why Obama is elected. News people from cnn, cbs,abc, many, many more were not honest with the American people. If people had been informed, he would NEVER HAVE BEEN ELECTED.

    How many czars did President George W Bush appoint?

    Did George Bush have Czars?
    The answer is yes. Just about every president since Franklin Roosevelt had "Czar" appointees in their administration. Bush had a total of 36 positions (many temporary) filled by a total of 46 different individuals over the years, of which 21 were confirmed by the U.S. Senate.


    The number of 46 is still highly objectionable, as some of the alleged czars were only nicknamed czars by media outlets. For instance the Director of National Intelligence was a position created by Congress, that required President Bush to fill. The Homeland Security "czar" was a temporary position until the Dept. of Homeland Security was formally created and funded. At least two other czars were appointed to serve emergency and temporary positions; Federal Coordinator of Hurricane Katrina Recovery Effort, and Special coordinator to respond to health effects of September 11 attacks.

    I agree , I really dont think we will see another Democrat in office for a very long time. They did this to themselves for buffalo'ing Americans. I think there should be an investigation into Obama and too those who are surrounding him /protecting him for thier own interest. And punished to the fullest extent of the law. This is corrupt ! I am a Democrat but did not vote for Obama and doubt if I will vote Democrat ever again. Lets just pray the republicans can produce a great Candidte and running mate in the next election.

    How many czars did President George W Bush appoint?

    Did George Bush have Czars?
    The answer is yes. Just about every president since Franklin Roosevelt had "Czar" appointees in their administration. Bush had a total of 36 positions (many temporary) filled by a total of 46 different individuals over the years, of which 21 were confirmed by the U.S. Senate.


    The number of 46 is still highly objectionable, as some of the alleged czars were only nicknamed czars by media outlets. For instance the Director of National Intelligence was a position created by Congress, that required President Bush to fill. The Homeland Security "czar" was a temporary position until the Dept. of Homeland Security was formally created and funded. At least two other czars were appointed to serve emergency and temporary positions; Federal Coordinator of Hurricane Katrina Recovery Effort, and Special coordinator to respond to health effects of September 11 attacks.

    What's new about a president having czars? Why is it important now, when it wasn't when Bush had more of them than Obama does now? There is no difference and you know it. This is just another example of the rwnj's trying to discredit this president, for doing the same things their own president did, things that they had no problems with at the time. It was fine for Bush to have all of those Czars, but now suddenly there is something wrong with having czars? Give me a break!

    This isn't just about Bush. Why are you people now asking if Czars are unconstitutional, when you didn't care before? Why are you now asking why President Obama feels the need to have so many czars, when President Bush had more? These are valid questions. Why do Czars suddenly matter with this president, when they didn't matter with a Republican President? These questions are just as important as the question asked by Kara. Why does it matter now, when it never mattered when the Republicans did the exact same thing?

    It isn't about Obama, or Bush, it's about czars. Are czars constitutional, is one of the questions kara asked. Why does Obama need so many is another. I'm asking why no one asked if czars were unconstitutional when Bush had more than Obama does now, or why they didn't ask why Bush had so many? Again, valid questions. I don't see you answering them.
    This just shows me the stupidity that the right will stoop to when trying to discredit president Obama. They find fault with him for doing the very same things that their president did.

    Right-wing talking heads like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Lou Dobbs have decided that any presidential advisor not approved by the Senate is an unconstitutional "czar" with too much power. Unfortunately, their outrage is filled with lies (many of the "czars" they complain about WERE confirmed by the Senate), hypocrisy (Bush had even more "czars" than Obama), and bad policy (what's wrong with the President having an advisor on violence against women?). First things first. What is a czar? According to Wikipedia,


    The title `czar' is an informal term for certain high-level officials who direct or oversee federal operations on a given topic or who coordinate policies between different departments on a given topic... In the United States, the term czar has been used by the media to refer to appointed executive branch officials since at least the early 1940s... Since then, a number of ad hoc, temporary as well as permanent United States Executive Branch positions have been established that have been referred to in this manner. For example, President Richard Nixon created two offices whose heads became known as "czars" in the popular press: drug czar in 1971, and energy czar in 1973.

    According to this Wikipedia article, Barack Obama has 32 "czars," three less than did Repub George W. Bush. The right-wing noise machine, which to my memory was nowhere to be found when Bush appointed a swine-flu czar, is outraged that a Democratic president would dare assume to have the same rights as a Repub president. Beck even lied about these numbers, claiming in June that "Other presidents have also named czars, but no one can hold a candle to President Obama who has named 16 czars so far!"

    After the resignation of Jones, the "White House Council on Environmental Quality Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation," Hannity declared, "We got rid of one [czar], and my job starting tomorrow night is to get rid of every other one. I promise you that!" According to Neil Cavuto, these czars - who actually have titles like White House Adviser on Violence Against Women, Director of the Office of National AIDS Policy, and Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for International Affairs - are "evil despots accountable to no one." That's right - if the President wants someone to inform him about violence against women but does not subject her to a lengthy and unnecessarily brutal vetting process, than she clearly must be described with the same word that Bush applied to Saddam Hussein and Kim Jong Il.

    It gets even better below the jump.

    Earlier this month, Repub strategist Angela McGlowan appeared on Fox News to ask, "What are we, in Russia? Having czars?" The idea of the President of the United States surrounding himself with tyrannical Soviet monarchs is a frightening one, but it's simply not true. You can't make up a word yourself (since "czar" is a press term) and then treat it as if it is accepted fact and law, nor can you reasonably compare an ADVISOR to a bloodthirsty dictator - not that Fox News has ever tried to explain the comparison. To them, showing Photoshopped pictures of presidential advisers wearing Russian clothing is the same thing as actual journalism, which makes sense given that their motto is, "We distort, you decide."

    Beck's numbers and McGlowan's comparisons aren't the only lies at play here. Many of the people that Hannity and Co. claim are undemocratic "czars" were confirmed to their positions by the U.S. Senate. These people include (based on a Beck list) John Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and - wait for it - Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair.

    This is not just partisanship - it's also hypocrisy. Karl Rove, a former top Bush advisor who was never subjected to Senate confirmation and was often called the "domestic policy czar," tweeted, "Darned if I can figure out all the czars, except a giant expansion of presidential power." And then there's Bill O'Reilly. Now, let's be clear here, I can't find any real evidence of O'Reilly himself attacking Obama over the czar issue, but guests on his show, from Beck to Laura Ingraham, have certainly done so. And yet back in 2001 and 2002, O'Reilly demanded that Bush create the very positions - immigration czar, car czar - that Beck and Dobbs now call undemocratic.

    If Beck, Hannity, and their crowd had their way, this country would come to its knees, and their party knows it. Bush had even more advisers than Obama, and none of these hacks complained. That's how you know that this is not actually about democracy - it is about putting politics before policy, arrogance before patriotism, and uninformed fear-mongering before reason. I, for one, am GLAD the President has people advising him on the auto crisis, government waste, and climate change. I am GLAD he has asked George Mitchell, a man who brokered peace in Northern Ireland and is respected on both sides of the aisle, to try to get the Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table. I don't think Mitchell is an "evil despot," and I didn't think Bush's Middle East envoy, General Anthony Zinni, was an "evil despot" either. But according to Cavuto, they're all going straight to hell.

    Beck, Dobbs, Cavuto and Co. are one of two things. If they believe this claptrap, then they are uninformed, incompetent, and stupid. If they know it's all bunk but don't care, then they are willing to subject their country and its 300 million inhabitants not to sound policy but to dangerous games. I pose the question, which better fits the definition of "evil"? Playing partisan games with deadly issues like violence against women, Darfur, and the Middle East, or seeking out expert advice on how to best manage all those issues at once?

    How many czars did President George W Bush appoint?

    Did George Bush have Czars?
    The answer is yes. Just about every president since Franklin Roosevelt had "Czar" appointees in their administration. Bush had a total of 36 positions (many temporary) filled by a total of 46 different individuals over the years, of which 21 were confirmed by the U.S. Senate.


    The number of 46 is still highly objectionable, as some of the alleged czars were only nicknamed czars by media outlets. For instance the Director of National Intelligence was a position created by Congress, that required President Bush to fill. The Homeland Security "czar" was a temporary position until the Dept. of Homeland Security was formally created and funded. At least two other czars were appointed to serve emergency and temporary positions; Federal Coordinator of Hurricane Katrina Recovery Effort, and Special coordinator to respond to health effects of September 11 attacks.
