Potemkin on the Potomac: Feingold Bolts

How out of touch is our President Barack Obama? He sets up his own town meetings, his own press--it's like he doesn't want to know. Are you listening Mr. President? Well, one Dem is, Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold:

Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin joined the anti-czar chorus Wednesday, asking Obama to detail the roles and responsibilities of all of the czars in his administration and to explain why he believes the use of czars is consistent with the Senate’s constitutional power to offer advice and consent on top-level executive branch officials.

“To the extent that this undercuts that role and people are put in the place of Cabinet people and really are the key authorities and you can’t question them, that’s something worth talking about,” Feingold said. “I think it’s a fair point.”

Feingold says he doesn’t know if there are any constitutional violations, but he suggested that he may hold an oversight hearing on the matter.

Yes, Obama's Chicago Machine campaign guru David Axelrod can refer to us as unhealthy, Sen. Durbin can make sexual slurs, The NY Times and the DNC call us an angry mob, Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can call us un-American, and now the Dems trot out their misery index miserable failure of a President Jimmy Carter to call us all raaaacists, but Sen. Feingold can apparently understand what he's hearing at his townhalls--this leftist up for reelection is furiously back-pedaling on cap and trade, and is now questioning the Czars--including the Czars' Czar, make no mistake.

P.S. Czar Talk.

They may be failures but the Obama administration wants to institutionalize them and perpetuate them. How typical of liberalism. And there is a cost to us of this--in dollars and in stalling real progress.
