California Townhall Meeting With Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) Comments on Obama’s Czars

On August 19th, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) held a town hall meeting in Bakersfield. He was asked why the Congress was allowing President Obama to create all the “Czars”. Just before he answered, there were shouts from the audience of “He’s a communist!” McCarthy smiled.

He answered the question by saying he did not believe Obama had the right to appoint these “Czars” and give them powers that encroach on the “Checks and Balances” the Constitution requires.

Wild Thing's comment........

Wow that was great. I just love it when we see this honesty from one of our own instead of kissing up to Obama like McCain is infamous for doing.

Hey McCain this is what REAL men and women do, they tell it like it is. And they tell the truth and they put AMERICAN FIRST unlike McCain who puts McCain first.

Congressman McCarthy is right. The Constitution allowed for checks and balances on every action of Congress. obama is bending, twisting and ignoring the rules. He is making himself king.

There are some really good Republican members of Congress. It is just that they are few in number. Maybe in 2010 we will change that ratio.

I agree WT and Tom. The bigger question is what are they doing about it. At the very least they can make it an issue.

It's a Constitutional issue and so far very few are upholding the Constitution, it's like that hollow oath they all swear when they take the office. The public hasn't held them accountable.
Obviously there aren't enough like Congressman McCarthy and we need to expunge the majority of the 435 in the house and all we can in the senate.

My next door neighbor whom I haven't seen in over a month mentioned that 'I thought Obama was going to stop the war', I bit my tongue, her son is going on leave in 3 weeks then to Afghanistan, I'm going to shanghai him and tell it like it really is. The only support he really has is his brother on the right and left of him and that his country and even family will abandon him during his trial by fire in preference of political correctness.
I respect the kid's choice to join the Navy as a SeaBee, proud of him actually. I tried to tell him that the course he took makes him a Navy 'Combat Engineer' on the ground and that Navy Corpsman were Marine Corps Medics. I wanted to ask her, who do you think is protecting your ass from the enemy? As if halting all war was going to stop enemy aggression, I wanna puke around these weak Euroweenie pacifists.

Regarding the Czars, the today article on really gave me the creeps. Read it. Especially where it says the following: "Another likely cause for panic is the growing list of “czars” being gathered around the President. They are in charge of all the big things in the nation as well as things such as the Great Lakes and something called Green Jobs.
Following an attack on the homeland which could easily be perpetrated by hired thugs, the President is likely to get on television, peer deeply into his TelePrompter, and announce that his “czars” are now in charge and Congress has been dismissed along with the members of the Supreme Court. Remember, it only took 19 real terrorists to attack the Twin Towers and the Pentagon"

Brrrr, scary.

Tom, I think so too, some of these people I
have never heard of and they really are
standing out now. I agree, I hope we
get more of them in 2010.
