What Place Do ‘Czars’ Have In Free America?

“The long list of Obama’s czars, accountable to no one except Obama himself, is one of his most worrisome and expensive notions. The czars may be substitutes for the nearly half of the administration’s executive-branch positions that remain unfilled.”

“The czars’ salaries are paid by the U.S. taxpayers, but they are not confirmed by the Senate and they appear to have the authority to override those who are confirmed. Lack of Senate confirmation means we must rely on Glenn Beck to discover that the green jobs czar, Van Jones, is or was a communist and a self-described “rowdy black nationalist.”

“Obama has appointed 34 czars. Just listing them is enough to scare anyone who believes in constitutional and representative government:

Afghanistan czar, AIDS czar, border czar, car czar, climate czar, copyright czar, cyberspace czar, drug czar, economic czar, education czar, energy czar, executive pay czar, faith-based czar, Great Lakes czar, green jobs czar, Guantanamo closure czar, health reform czar, infotech czar, intelligence czar, Iran czar, Middle East peace czar, non-proliferation czar, Persian Gulf/Southeast Asia czar, regulatory czar, science czar, stimulus accountability czar, Sudan czar, TARP czar, terrorism czar, urban czar, war czar and WMD and terrorism czar.”
