Why all these “czars”? What does the President hope to accomplish? Who are they? These are some of the questions people started to ask about when reporters first exposed Van Jones, now former Green Czar, as not only making raciest statements against white Americans, but also admitted to be a self proclaimed Marxist. Yet even though Van Jones resigned over the weekend, not fired like he should have been, there still remains about 30 more czars in the Obama Administration.

Why does President Obama, or for that matter, any president nominate czars to their administration? Well, a White House spokeswoman for the Bush administration Dana Perino told Fox News that presidents like to appoint czars, because it is easier to do rather than putting them through  congressional oversight especially when congress is increasingly partisan. One would have to wonder why then is President Obama doing this in such high frequency? Yes, congress is more partisan than ever, but the Democrats have a huge majority both in the House and Senate. One would have to lean toward the fact that the President appears to be trying to bypass those that have the authority to make laws by putting these other people into power. This includes the recently appointed Ron Bloom to over see manufacturing policy. I certainly hope that our congress steps in to evaluate the responsibilities and powers given to these czars before our country is completely out of the peoples’ hands.
