    Wouldn't you avoid appointing a bunch of unelected czars? Isn't that just f'ing common sense?

    More of an associative definition than literal....

    It was the czar that the communists overthrown..... But either way it was totalitarian for totalitarian.

    I think he means putting unelected, unvetted, and unconfirmed people in charge of our country. There is no check and balance for these people

    The term "czar" in reference to an appointed low-level cabinet position goes back to Nixon's administration.

    So, again.

    How does appointing "czars" make Obama a Communist?
