I got a chuckle out of this. It seems those in the cabinet feel the President Obama’s management style is not up to par for an executive. What do you expect when you add a few dozen czars into the mix?
Michelle Malkin asks the question. This seems to be one of those discussions where almost all Republicans and a quite a few Democrats can agree on. The Executive branch power extension is ticking off some in the Legislative branch. Will Obama hold the line, close some czar offices, or try to grab more power?
And you thought Van Jones was the only czar with a sketchy past … or saying controversial things. The first via Gateway Pundit … wonderful.
President Obama’s “safe schools czar” is a former schoolteacher who has advocated promoting homosexuality in schools, written about his past drug abuse, expressed his contempt for religion and detailed an incident in which he did not report an underage student who told him he was having sex with older men.
Conservatives are up in arms about the appointment of Kevin Jennings, Obama’s director of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, saying he is too radical for the job.
OK … a person with a history of drug abuse, religion hating, promoter of underage sex, safe school czar … what could go wrong, as Glenn Reynolds would say.
Then there’s this via … Glenn Reynolds.
President Obama’s diversity czar at the Federal Communications Commission has spoken publicly of getting white media executives to “step down” in favor of minorities, prescribed policies to make liberal talk radio more successful, and described Hugo Chavez’s rise to power in Venezuela “an incredible revolution.”
Mark Lloyd’s provocative comments – most made during a tenure at the liberal Center for American Progress think tank – are giving fodder to critics who say Mr. Obama has appointed too many “czars” to government positions that don’t require congressional approval.
A diversity czar who thinks private sector exectuives should just step down so another person of a different skin color can have a turn. HMMMM. Socialism? What socialism? I don’t see no socialism.
I worry. My Mom worry.
Someone asked me about five days ago if I was planning to write anything about Obama’s green jobs adviser Van Jones. My other responsibilities and issues with our “enhanced” Web host was the primary reason why I was not writing, but I also figured he’d be gone by Labor Day. Bye, bye.
The hits just keep on coming for Obama’s Green Jobs Czar. Update: he’s gone. Read more
Columnist John C. Dovorak is one of my favorites. He writes for PC magazine and Marketwatch. He has been doing a little research on a couple the the Obama appointees namely CIO Vivek Kundra. It seems that Kundra is not who he says he is. Read the article here.
Apparently there is no record of the degrees that he says he has.
trying to actually verify his supposed MS in Information Technology from the University of Maryland, College Park campus. The registrar has no record of it. In fact the current University of Maryland grad department doesn’t even show this degree as being commonly available to anyone. A search of his college records shows no attendance after he received his BS degree in Psychology on 12/20/98. In fact his last day of school 12/19/98 wrapped up the six years it took Kundra to obtain his undergraduate degree.
The article explains that the company that he ran was a one man operation that showed sales of $67,000. He apparently lied about teaching at University of Maryland. He has no idea about technology and he is apparently responsible for approving $18 million for a new recovery.gov website. You could have people updating the site by hand all day long for $18 million and you could do it for several years!! It may be laughable that Obama was hoodwinked and bamboozled this time, but it it OUR money that this FRAUD is spending.
He was busted for stealing shirts from JCPenny’s in 1997. 12 years ago he was stealing from JCPenny and now he is stealing from me and you. That is quite a step up. Nice Job Kundra, nice due diligence Obama.
And his sketchy background was disconcerting. It included a 1997 bust for stealing shirts from JC Penny’s and the later bust of his former staff by the FBI at the DC office during a bribery investigation.
Good question. Read more
