One way to get out of a campaign promise of "transparency" is to create one new czar after the other. No transparency needed from these Obama appointees. They can operate freely without any accountability to the American people. In short, it is a power grab each time Obama appoints one. Make no mistake: a power grab equals danger.
Byrd’s comments have less force as he is no longer the chairman of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee.This news passed under the MSM radar even though Fox and CBS (surprise)reported it. Back in January,Obama had 18 czars,but it's more like 20 to 21 at this writing. Actually, there could be many more czars. Fox reported that Washington quibbles about who is and isn't a czar, and it is rumored that Barney Frank appointed himself the Car Czar last week.
Old Obama had a Czar, ee I ee I oh.Perhaps,Sher Zieve says best what many of us are worried about:
A shadow government has been defined as a ’government-in-waiting’ that remains in waiting with the intention of taking control of a government in response to some event.” With the Obama Shadow Government (which he has staffed and continues to staff with old Soviet-styled “Czars” who are accountable ONLY to him) the “some event” appears to be a series of events that Dictator in Chief Barack Hussein Obama and his followers have created themselves and brought to bear upon the current—traditional—US government. Have any of you heard dissent from anyone in the Democrat-controlled US Congress? We certainly won’t hear any from the now almost completely State-run Obama media.
Surely the leftist media will mark the concern over czars as more of the "whisper" campaign against Obama. But Obama is not supernatural. Power corrupts,and it should concern any American when a branch of government steps over the boundaries. At least, we should take time to question it!
