“Article 1, Section 9 says no title of nobility should granted by the United States, there you go. I would say to President Obama that czar is a title of nobility and therefore unconstitutional.”
- Delaware GOP-tea party idiot candidate Christine O’Donnell, who appears not to know that “czar” is not an official title or that Reagan had a “drug czar” to oversee Nancy’s pet project, the “war on drugs,” or that George W. Bush had 32 czars on his staff.
Ok, I have had it! This woman and some of these teabaggers are STUPID! Did you hear what she said about Czars? These people are either powerfully stupid and dumb or uninformed. No wonder these rightwing hacks are afraid to face me on this forum when I talk about this idiot of a woman. The church comment was dumb enough. Now I know some of you lil teabaggers got your panties all in a bunch because I dare criticize this dummy. Well I will make a deal with you. Tell all of those rightwing talkies and TV people on Fox and radio to stop lying about the left and demonizing people they don't like and I will tone down my language. Here is a little bit of history. In this country the term Czar was used and is a media creation...I will repeat that because it sounds vaguely important..it is a media creation it has nothing to do with official government titles. This lady is an blithering idiot. The sad part is that the other teabaggers just accept it and not calling her on it. How sad this bunch of people really are. I refuse to take anybody on the right teabaggers and all seriously until they shut down such stupidity. She won't even go on any show that will ask her any hard questions(not even O'reilly and he is a has been)) she canceled all of her media appearances except for ole softball Hannity...which tells you a lot about him. Btw every Republican administration has had these so called Czars and no one ever complained. Now if you one of those people that say well Obama has an awful lot of them..then you really need help.
"In the United States, the term czar has been used by the media to refer to appointed executive branch officials since at least 1930s and then the 1940s under President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1942, The Washington Post reported on the "executive orders creating new czars to control various aspects of our wartime economy." Positions were created for a transportation czar, a manpower czar, a production czar, a shipping czar, and a synthetic rubber czar, all to solve difficult problems in coordinating the resources necessary to fight World War II. Not only did the administration of President Roosevelt advocate their creation; in December 1944, Republicans in Congress advocated that a "food czar" position be created that would have almost unlimited control over food pricing and distribution. Certain of Roosevelt's Cabinet secretaries were called "czars", despite having been duly confirmed by the Senate, at the point that their powers were increased by statute."
