George's picture has been in the family before the Civil War and was referred to in diaries kept by female family members. I look upon him each morning as this picture is above my computer and I wonder how he would feel about today's government.
Our current President has saw fit to have a Czar System. A Czar by definition is a male monarch or emperor (especially in Russia prior to 1917); a person having GREAT POWER; an informal title for high level officials in United States and the United Kingdom.
Unfortunately like Sen. Robert Byrd (Dem. W. Va.) has written these Czars "inhibit openness and transparency and reduces accountability."
No former President has embraced the Czar Concept to the extent as Obama has. Does this suggest that he wants to avoid openness and accountability?
If you question the American public would they know who the Czars are, what they do and how much each make? Probably not.
Are there 32 Czars or 35 Czars now. I have lost count.
I am one of those D--n Independents who look at the man or woman and not the party but am I the only one concerned about Czars? I for one do not even like the TITLE. Czars have been referred to as "Super Aides". They put their pants on one leg at a time just like the rest of us so what makes them SUPER. Most of their salaries are UNKNOWN and there is only one who makes less than $100,000.00 but more than $50,000.00.
Who pays them? How was their salary set? Most American especially those unemployed would like a shot at those jobs. Give me an application or would you like one? BTW Obama did not start the Czar system he just has more than any other President.
Now wouldn't The Father of our Country wonder who the hell thought of Czars?

The kitty justice if yours is not broken you need to gather the KAT FUZZIES.

So many were swept away by the "glamour family" and Obama's oratory skills.

Personally I think he still has a long way to go to prove himself...smoke and mirrors don't cut it these days and he seems to have softened. Perhaps he always was that way and the wave of campaign caused a fever.

They all seem to get caught up in their own rhetoric and fall in love with hearing their own voice. Unfortunately it's a human trait.

I just wish we had "leaders" in this world today. It's something we've lacked for a long time, in my humble opinion.

It seems that on the election day, the intelect of the american voters went on strike, so now you, and the world will have to bear the consequences.

Amen we do need someone who knows the meaning of trust and ethics and I do believe Washington DC has none. That is why I believe we will have a true changing of the guard come future elections. I just hope it is now more Smoke and Mirrors.

Unfortunately there are some American people who should not be allowed to vote. To prove my point all you had to do was watch the Jay Leno segement called "jay walking' during the elections to see how ignorant some folks happen to be. And they are walking amoung us and reproducing which is the scary fact.
