Czar Czar Galore

The Obama Administration is not the first administration to appoint someone with broad powers to oversee a function. You know. A “czar.”

Previously, we’ve had Drug Czars, Energy Czars, and so on. But, Barack Obama has gone Czar crazy.

As best as I can tell, here are Obama’s czars:

  1. Af-Pak (Afghanistan-Pakistan) Czar: Richard Holbrooke
  2. Bailout Czar: Herb Allison
  3. Border Czar: Alan Bersin
  4. Car Czar: Steven Rattner
  5. Climate Czar: Todd Stern
  6. Cyber Security Czar: vacant
  7. Drug Czar: Gil Kerlikowske
  8. Economic Czar: vacant
  9. Energy Czar: Carol M. Browner
  10. Faith-based Czar: Joshua DuBois
  11. Great Lakes Cleanup Czar: Cameron Davis
  12. Green Jobs Czar: Van Jones
  13. Guantanamo Closure Czar: Daniel Fried
  14. Health Reform Czar: Nancy-Ann DeParle
  15. Health Infotech Czar: David Blumenthal
  16. Middle East Czar: George Mitchell
  17. Non-Proliferation (WMD) Czar: Gary Samore
  18. Pay (Compensation) Czar: Kenneth Feinberg
  19. Persian Gulf & Southwest Asia Czar: Dennis Ross
  20. Regulatory Czar: Cass Sunstein
  21. Science Czar: John Holdren
  22. Stimulus Accountability Czar: Earl Devaney
  23. Sudan Czar: Scott Gration
  24. TARP Czar: Elizabeth Warren
  25. Technology Czar: Vivek Kundra
  26. Terrorism Czar: John Brennan
  27. Urban Czar: Aldolfo Carrion, Jr.

There are more czars in the Obama Administration than there are in the Russian section of Hell.

Of course, Obama being a leftist and all, likes big government. So, there’s no surprise that he’s appointing folks left and … left … to oversee all kinds of topics. And, most of these don’t have any kind of Congressional oversight.

You’ve heard of Congressional oversight, haven’t you? Part of the whole “checks and balances” thing that the Constitution sets up. Keeps one branch of the government from getting bigger than the other branches.

On the other hand, maybe this is actually a good thing. I mean, Congress hasn’t done anything useful in years. When the Republicans controlled Congress for most of Bush’s terms, they acted like Democrats and spent your and my money like crazy. Only, not quite as bad as the current Congress.

The Supreme Court has been 4-1/2 to 4-1/2 for some time: four activist vs four Constitutionalists, with one in-between (Kennedy). The new Justice, whether Sotomayor (who’s qualified, except for having no qualifications) or whatever stark-raving liberal Obama nominates instead, will take a liberal’s spot, so it remains 4-1/2 to 4-1/2.

With neither of the other branches doing anything useful, why shouldn’t the Executive Branch increase its power?

Other than the fact that the Executive Branch is run by a bunch of big government socialists who think your money is there’s.

So, why stop at 25-30 czars? Why not appoint a bunch more:

  • Gaffe Czar: Joe Biden. Sure, he’s vice-president, but he’s already doing the job of Gaffe Czar; why not make it official?
  • News Czar: Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf. You knew him as “Baghdad Bob.” He’d fit right in with this Administration. And it would give Robert Gibbs a break from having to make up explanations for things all by himself.
  • Anti-semitism Czar: Jeremiah Wright. He’s already promoting anti-semitism as much as anyone is this country. This would give him a larger platform.
  • Fashion Czar: Michelle Obama. Remember Jackie Kennedy? Michelle Obama is equally qualified. Except for having poor taste in clothes. And men.

The list could go on and on.

It’s going to be an interesting four years.

  2. Some of those you listed already are filling a position that was created before they were nominated. Gil Kerlikowske and Carol M. Browner are two good examples. But, I will label them advisors

  5. “It’s going to be an interesting four years.”

    So let me get this straight. You’re still under the impression that this guy is going to leave office after 4 to 8 years? Well, we’ll see, anything can happen.

  6. This is proof that Obama is no communist. If there’s one thing that communists hate with a fiery passion, it is czars.

    [The Czar (or Tsar) was actually ousted by the Republicans in the February Revolution (March 2, 1917). The Communists took power following the October Revolution (November 7, 1917). – B]

  7. And the Czar said “honest taxpayers need not apply”
    So I rolled my 1040 up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
    He said “You look like a sly controllable man, I think you’ll do”
    So I took off my hat, I said “Imagine that. Huh! Me workin’ for you!”
    Whoa-oh-oh

    Czar,Czar, everywhere a Czar.
    Drivin’ ’round the capitol in limosine cars.
    “Do this , don’t do that.” Can’t you hear the Czars?

    And the Czar said border trespassin’ would be welcomed on sight
    So I built up a fence and called the White House , “Hey! I’ve got a right!
    “To put up a fence to keep enemies out and to keep mother freedom in”
    “If Lincoln was here he’d tell you to your face, Man, you’re some kinda sinner”

    Czar,Czar, everywhere are Czars.
    Soaring ’round the world like Hollywood stars.
    “Do this , don’t do that.” Can’t you hear the Czars?

    Now, hey you, mister, can’t you think?
    Just a half liter of water can go down that sink.
    You can’t watch FOX News, no you can’t speak.
    We need to spread your wealth ’round.

    And the Czar said you need a Dem. membership card to climb up high.
    Ugh!

    [Lead Guitar]

    And the Czar said, “Everybody welcome. Come on, buy my new car”
    But with my legs folded into that GM golf cart, I wouldn’t be going far.
    So I got me a pen and my ballot and I cast my own little vote
    I said, “No thanks, Czar , quit thinkin’ about me. Get your damn hands off my throat!”
    Wooo!

    Czar,Czar, everywhere are Czars.
    Running out for burgers in their limosine cars.
    “Do this , don’t do that.” Can’t you hear the Czars?
    Czar,Czar, everywhere are Czars.
    Flying to a golf date in a helicopter.
    “Do this , don’t do that.” Can’t you hear the Czars?

  11. And we need a Sea Zar to deal with the, as yet, un-zarred matters beyond territorial waters such as whaling.

    The Pot Czar should be titled The Potentoker.

  15. Obviously Obama hates women! Just a token woman Czar here and there. I might be mistaken! Maybe there is a “Czarina” list too, where only dikes appear on the Czar list.
