    Randall L. Tobias,abstinence czar- sex scandal, Eric J. Keroack,resigned his position at HHS because of prescribing drugs to people who are not his patients and for providing mental health counseling without proper training. There could be others. The point being Obama is no better or worse where these appointments are concerned.

    As for Susan conducting a Witch Hunt your kidding right Susan Collins maybe Newt or any other of the republican Nut Jobs but not Susan Collins she does do her own thing which does PO allot of the Republican Leadership sort of like another Maine Republican Margaret Chase Smith.
    No, I'm not kidding, and I know her as well as anyone here. Directly or indirectly her proposal would evolve into a witch hunt given the partisan political climate we are seeing coming out of Washington. I think her intention of more oversight may be commendable, but it also plays into the Republican agenda of going against virtually every decision Obama makes. While I doubt she is personally on a witch hunt, her proposal would play into the agenda the Republicans seem to be pursuing, which is to go against every decision Obama makes, including his choices of who he feels is best suited to advise him.

    Most people did not have a problem with "czars" before now, and most people did not have a problem with Obama "czars" until certain ones radical viewpoints started to become public.

    A year ago I'd have been inclined to agree.....these days, however, the wingnut fringe appears to be all that's left of the GOP. I seriously doubt that Collins expected this bill to actually go anywhere; in all likelihood she was simply going through the motions as an act of political theater.

    No not really I know Susan very well and she doesn't Cow Tie to the Wingnutts of the republican party, As I have been trying to point out she doesn't go and do something like thios on a whim.

    And the way the White House attack this is going to hurt them in the long run trust me on this. They just made an enemy out of both Susan and Olympia and any other Moderate Republican they thought would help them on any Bills.

    I agree it is little more then partisan finger pointing. But I am agaisnt it no matter who is doing it. To say it doesnt matter because both sides do it is the very thing that has put our country into the toliet.

    Czars are simply advisors.....no power to do anything other than advise.

    I was MUCH more concerned with the unprecedented number of "signing statements" that our last President used, which in actuality was a much more dangerous usurption of power.

    Funny.....don't remember you expressing any concern about that.....right deflector?

    Are you trying to suggest that you and Senator Collins are close personal friends?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
