I bet Beck thinks socialism is a political system. Maybe this is why he hates socialism so much.
Also could someone clear this up for me, isn't Obama's Global Warming Czar apart of or was apart of a socialist group?
Why the hell are people trying to paint such a bad picture of socialism when the US isn't really fully capitalistic anymore. Its like being of mix race & hating that race which happens to be apart of you.
Oh & did anyone catch how when Beck was spelling oligarh he had to look back & see if he was spelling it correctly (& still failed lol).
....wonder what people like beck, or whoever, are like at home, when they are safe and unrestrained. Do they still act like they do on air? Same beliefs? I mean I imagine stuff, but I don't know. I just wonder...."wtf are they ACTUALLY thinking on the *real* inside of themselves?"
I hear you! I was always hoping SNL would have a Chris Matthews sketch (Darrell Hammond plays him) following Matthews at home, having him speak in that same sort of blurting honk he uses on his show -- "Hey SON. Do me a FAVOR. Take out the GARBAGE."
As far as whether Beck is consistent in his beliefs, well ...
I did some googleing, here's a list of the "Czars" that I could find refrences for, though I can't find all the names, and there are obviously some missing, because there are supposed to be 34 of them according to the "Fair and balanced" network;
Energy czar--Carol Browner Urban czar --Adolfo Carrion, Jr. Infotech czar --Vivek Kundra Faith-based czar-- Joshua DuBois Health reform czar Nancy-Ann DeParle New TARP czar --Herb Allison Stimulus accountability czar-- Earl Devaney Non-proliferation czar --Gary Samore Terrorism (I thought they didn't use that word) czar --John Brennan Regulatory czar-- Cass Sunstein Drug czar-- Gil Kerlikowske Guantanamo closure czar --Daniel Fried pay czar--Kenneth R. Feinberg a U.S. border czar--Alan Bersin car czar--Steve Rattner Economic Czar-- Paul A. Volcker Intelligence Czar -- Dennis Blair Great Lakes (????WTF???) Czar-- Cameron Davis Cyber Czar-- TBA Copyright Czar Climate Czar Housing Czar Mortgage Czar Iran czar Middle East czar-- George Mitchell Afghanistan and Pakistan czar education czar AIDS czar green jobs czar (I don't know if they'll name a new one or not)
Here's a list of how many "Czars" each president had, the first number represents the number of "Czar" positions and the number of appointments, so, Bush had 35 Czar positions over 8 years, with 46 appointments across those positions.
Franklin Roosevelt 1933-1945 12 19 Harry Truman 1945-1953 6 6 Dwight Eisenhower 1953-1961 1 1 Lyndon Johnson 1963-1969 3 3 Richard Nixon 1969-1974 3 5 Gerald Ford 1974-1977 1 1 Jimmy Carter 1977-1981 2 3 Ronald Reagan 1981-1989 1 1 George H. W. Bush 1989-1993 2 3 Bill Clinton 1993-2001 7 11 George W. Bush 2001-2009 35 46 Barack Obama 2009 32 35
Bush went fro Clinton's 7 to his 35 and right now Obama has 35. Reading the list I can see some of them are going to be short term, or at least temporary. A few I see with no permanant future:Guantanamo closure czar --Daniel Fried and car czar--Steve Rattner.
As for a Great Lakes Czar, I too would like to know why there is one and if so do I get to tell them about Granholm wasting the Stimulus money or do I have to talk to both of them?
One last thing. If Clinton got by with the high number of 7 and JFK didn't have any (?) Why in the hell does Bush or Obama need all these positions? Isn't there people that were in charge of these things before 9/11?
Also for all of those that bitch about Obama's (including Beck even though he isn't here that we know of) did you/they also complain as loudly as you are now?
I never heard so much as a peep from anyone on either side about Bush's Czars. And if having that many Czars make you a commie, socialist, fascist, in favor of becoming any of the above or Glen's worry an oligarh/oligarhy/oligarChy then that means Bush would have been for the same thing I would say.
