This thread is to settle the Czar debate once and for all. The first President to really have Czars was FDR. He had 12 Czar Jobs and 18 appointees. Over the years, every single President has had at least one. Nixon had the most since Harry Truman with 2 Czar Jobs and 4 appointees. Bill Clinton had 6 Czar Jobs and 9 appointees. Barack Obama has currently Thirty Two (32) Czar Jobs and 34 appointees. But what about Dubya? He had THIRTY FIVE CZAR JOBS (35) and FORTY FIVE (45) appointees. My question is the following: Where was the outrage when Bush was in office? Where was Glenn Beck? He wasn't crying on television about how the Republicans were trying to conquer this country with Socialism or Facism or whatever. The List of Czars under President George W. Bush and their years: An Abstinence Czar (2006-2007) THREE different AIDS Czars (2001-2002), (2002-2003), and (2006-2007).
