There are 32 "Czars" in the Obama Administration according to an article posted on The Glenn Beck Program found here. The nearly three dozen or so
people that Barack Obama has surrounded himself with to handle this
problem or that issue have not been confirmed by the Senate and are
operating an agency not created by Congress. In our constitutional
republic, government does not have a role in every part of life. That
is why Congress has to create departments, agencies and
administrations. Everything that the federal government does must, in
some way, relate to its powers under the Constitution. The first
cabinet offices dealt with clear cut federal duties - diplomacy, war,
justice, money, and postal services. Before Congress creates a federal office, a
threshold question is whether the Constitution allows the work of that
office to be done by the federal government. That is the heart of
Congress has the right and the duty to review, confirm, or reject the chief officer of the federal executive and legislative branches (except, of course, for the president and vice president.) And Congress has the right and the duty to remove any important federal officer who is corrupt or exceeds the powers of his office.
Given the current situation of the Liberal Democrat Party controlling the Executive Office and the Legislative Branch of the US Government it is unlikely that the original intent of the Founding Fathers for a system of checks and balances will not exist until after the 2010 elections.
We look forward to a coming "change" that will return the USA to the principles and values of The Constitution as created by The Founders.
