Here a Czar, There a Czar, Everywhere You Look a Czar!

As the number of so-called "czars" keeps piling up, it's raising serious questions about how powerful these White House insiders are..."It underscores the inefficiency of government that you keep ... having people, hoping that maybe they will get something done that the massive government bureaucracy cannot," he said...Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., likens these officials to part of a parallel government, "one that is outside of the Constitution and the authority of Congress." [link]

I would like to bring these czar's to everyone's attention. America needs to keep a close eye on these czars. Especially since they do cross over cabinet boundaries, have sweeping influence and power, and do not have to be vetted, or approved by Congress.

As one whose ancestors lived under and eventually fled from the land of the Czars (Nicholas II), I really wish the USA would stop naming unelected political appointments with such a title.

Afterall it didn't turn out too well in their their title namesake's case, and as I recall what was left in their place didn't go so well for most people either.

What is Obama up to now,what - 30 some odd czars.

Pretty soon he is going to have more czars than congressmen,which I am beginning to think is the idea of it all.

Just saying is all.
