Rounding out today’s stories about so-called “czars” is a history lesson involving Bill O’Reilly. Everyone from the O’Reilly Factor guest-host Laura Ingraham, Glenn Beck to Sean Hannity to Fox & Friends is on the attack against “czars” under the Obama Administration, regardless of the fact that many of the positions existed under previous administrations, they’re confirmed by the Senate, or that they are simply advisers. What did Bill O’Reilly have to say in 2001 & 2002? Let’s take a look…

O’REILLY (October 4, 2001): Yeah, there should be somebody appointed by the federal government, a disaster relief victims family czar, to do it.

O’REILLY (October 21, 2001): So things are moving in the right direction, but are still far too chaotic. Talking Points continues to ask for the appointment of a charity czar to coordinate all the money and organizations.

O’REILLY (March 13, 2002): A presidential counsel should be appointed immigration czar and clean out the INS once and for all. This pitiful government agency has put all of us in danger. It simply does not perform, and all the excuses in the world don’t cut it. Shut it down, start again. The INS is a dangerous failure.

O’REILLY (June 11, 2002): It’s time for Congress to act and for the president to appoint a charity czar to oversee the money and hold the charities accountable.

  1. You do realize that most people aren’t bothered by the amount of czars, but there extremist views. How many Marxists can the president fit in the White House?

  2. FoxNewsBoycott says:

    Brian, If that were true, they wouldn’t have been complaining about the czars, posting their numbers, pictures, names, etc. prior to asking their viewers for dirt on them.
