WISHING UPON A CZAR

Posted by Andrew Roman on June 15, 2010

Zip at Weasel Zippers asks the question: “How many Czars are we up to now?”

He asks this in response to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs’ saying that President Obama will announce a Gulf oil spill recovery plan tonight.

That plan will be headed by a brand new Czar – the latest in an ever-growing stable of Czars that answer to no one but President Barack Obama.

Gibbs spoke with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America:

GIBBS: We are going to outline tonight groups of people and somebody that will be in charge of a recovery plan – putting a recovery plan together – and ready to have when we get past the cleanup and response phase of this disaster.”

STEPHANOPOULOS: So a “Recovery Czar?”

GIBBS: We will have somebody who will – yes – be tasked with doing that.

From Infotech Czar to AIDS Czar, from California Water Czar to Green Jobs Czar, there isn’t a Czar President Obama can’t whip up on a dime.

It’s hard to tally a precise count of exactly how many of these unaccountable, unofficial positions actually exist in ObamaLand, but some say in the neighborhood of 30 to 35.

Maybe they need a Czar Czar.
