Obama Ignores Spending Bill's "Czar" Ban
President Obama "is planning to ignore language in the 2011 spending package that would ban several top White House advisory posts," signing a statement in which he says has no obligation to comply, Politico reports.
"The anti-czar language in the spending bill marked a victory for Republicans and conservative pundits, who accused the administration of giving unelected bureaucrats too much power within the White House. But the language didn't appear to have any immediate impact on Obama's staff. Energy and climate adviser Carol Browner resigned earlier this year; health czar Nancy-Ann DeParle was promoted to deputy White House chief of staff; Obama's urban affairs adviser, Adolfo Carrión, left the White House to become a regional director for the Department of Housing and Urban Development; and the White House said auto and manufacturing adviser Ron Bloom wouldn't be affected by the language."

We're Liberty and Freedom-minded, professional fellows; with a plethora of things to say and no fear in expressing them. One of our favorite sayings is:
"Oderint dum metuant" which translates, roughly, as "Let them hate as long as they fear." It was a favorite saying of the Roman emperor Caligula. He wasn't a particularly nice guy, but he had the world at his bidding and history will never forget him or his notoriety. That's power.
