The Obama “Czar” Team Running America – (perhaps now you will know why we are in such big trouble)

When did we become a nation of Czars?

I first remember hearing the title being used in the 1970’s, when the nation was getting serious about reducing our dependence on foreign oil, brought about by the energy shortages caused by the OPEC oil embargo. In response, Nixon named the first “Energy Czar.” Well, we know how well that worked out. We’re as wasted on foreign oil as ever.

Then, the government must have seen the brain damage that had resulted from the drug-induced hippies of the ’60’s, so it created the first “Drug Czar.” That decade of youth are now the “love children” leading our government, which explains a lot, but I digress.

There is something troubling about the word being used as a title in American politics. “Czar,” to me has the connotion of “Ruler,” or someone who has absolute power, as in a “Russian Czar or Tsar.” No one in our once free land is supposed to have absolute power, so the term always rubbed me the wrong way. It conjures up images of communism, elitism, and gallon jugs of Russian vodka.

Now, however, as the out-of-control, all-encompassing, federal government bureaucracies, have taken control and power over nearly every area of our lives, there are Czars gallore: Terrorism Czar, Car Czar (Hey, that rhymes, isn’t that convenient!), Food Czar, Climate Czar (shouldn’t that be Al Gore?), Copyright Czar, and even a Cybersecurity Czar.

Can you imagine an automobile designed by the “Car Czar” and the wizards in Washington, D.C.? How well it would be built and how efficient it would be? The styling would be the size of a postal vehicle, but shaped more like a pig! Maybe Barney Frank would be a good pick.

Recently, we heard from the nation’s first “Bailout Czar,” confessed tax cheat and head tax-collector, Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner. Apparently, Wall Street didn’t like what the Czar had to say given the large decline in the Dow.

Perhaps, we’ll have to begin referring to President Obama as the nation’s first, “First Czar,” given how he thinks he can steal from our kid’s future piggy banks with his “Stick-it-to-us” Plan, just because, “He won.”

Does the President think that every industry needs its own Czar? Why? As far as I can tell, their track record is abysmal, but that never seems to stop the government that has the attitude that if it doesn’t work, it must be underfunded. I’m surprised we haven’t seen someone appointed “Prostitution Czar.” Elliot Spitzer would be a qualified, experienced choice.

There was even a “Performance Czar” named by the President. Of course, she apparently hadn’t performed too well in preparing her tax returns and had to withdraw her name. Possibly, in a show of bipartisanship, President Obama could convince former Senator and Presidential Candidate Bob Dole to come out of retirement to be the first Performance Czar. That is, if he’s not too busy doing Viagra commercials.

Many would say, including myself, that the country is in a real danger of falling into the trap of the sought after equality that socialism brings (equal poverty), under the Obama administration, and his desire to “spread the wealth around,” (code phrase for steal from those who earned it and give it to those who didn’t).

In any event, you certainly  did not vote for them…and it doesn’t even matter which box you checked during the last election.  They are busy behind the scenes, working at the bidding of Obama, without congressional or congressional approval – and basically have more power and access to the President than the Cabinet.

The most interesting thing about the following list is the radical left’s composition of these “czars” AND their outright lack of experience in the area which the are supposed to serve.

Afghanistan Czar – Richard Holbrooke:  Ultra-liberal, anti-gun, pro-abortion and promoter of legal drug use.  Working actively to dissolve 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution.

Auto Recovery Czar – Ed Montgomery.  No automotive industry experience whatsoever, radical anti-business activist, teaches at University of Maryland that US business has caused world poverty, ACORN board member and Communist DuBois Club member.

AIDS Czar – radical homosexual ad gay rigts activist.  Believes in gay marriage(surprise, surprise!) and a special status for homosexuals only, including complete free health care for gays.

Border Czar – Former failed superintendent of San Diego; ultra-liberal friend of Hillary Clinton, served as Border Czar under Janet Reno – to keep borders open to illegals without interference from US.

California Water Czar – David J. Hayes – Senior fellow radical environmentalist group and “Progressive Policy”; no training or experience in water management whatsoever.

Car Czar – Ron Bloom – Auto union worker. Anti-business andanti-nuclear.  Has worked hard to force US  auto makers out of bu siness.

Central Region Czar – Dennis Ross – Believes US policy has caused Mid-East wars.  He is a White House apologist to the world.  Anti-gun and completely pro-abortion.

Domestic Violence Czar – Lynn Rosenthal – Vicious anti-male feminist…Supported male castration.

Economic Czar – Paul Voker.  Head of the Federal Reserve under Jimmy Carter when the US economy nearly failed.  The White House appointed him head of the Economic Recovery Advisory Board, which engineered the economic disaster to the US economy.  Member of anti-business “Progressive Policy” organization.

Energy and Environment Czar – Carol Browner – Political radical former head of EPA – known for anti-business activism. Strong anti-gun ownership.
