Czarist Nonsense

If Senator Hutchinson is suggesting that appointing czars is an affront to the constitution, I would point out that the appointment of czars has been going on since 1933 with President Roosevelt who had 12 czars and 19 political appointees.

President Bush had 35 czars and 45 appointees, and President Obama has 31 czars and 33 appointees. Assuming these positions are appointed at the beginning of an administration and last throughout their length of term, I don't see our current president as doing anything different.

Please check out wikipedia for a list of presidential czars and appointees from 1933-present.
