Today on Glenn Beck’s show, we started with a primer on Obama’s “czars” and how they came to be. FDR started them, but then they were called actual “dictators.” Nixon then decided the positions were appropriate, but didn’t like the “dictator” term and chose “czars” instead. Now fast forward to the Obama administration and we have 16 czars so far, and we don’t think he’s finished naming them. They are not elected, are accountable to no one, and should frighten every freedom-loving American out there.
Judge Napolitano, Gretchen Carlson, and investor Charles Payne were on to discuss the legality and real human consequences of the latest decision about Chrysler. Gretchen’s family has owned a Chrysler dealership in Minnesota for 90 years, and they were one of the ones terminated. They were given no reason, nor the criteria that was used, even though Carlson’s family dealership had met 103% of their sales goals. Can anyone explain that to me or to Gretchen? Apparently it’s all depending upon who you’re “hooked up” to, because another dealership asked for and was granted a meeting with GM and the “car czar’s reps,” and lo and behold, they were shortly thereafter granted a reprieve and allowed to remain open. WTF is that all about.
