All Hail Czar

Obama Names Asian Carp Czar

The White House has tapped a former leader of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Indiana Wildlife Federation as the Asian carp czar to oversee the federal response to keeping the invasive species out of the Great Lakes.

On a conference call today with Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin and other congressional leaders, President Obama's Council on Environmental Quality announced the selection of John Goss to lead the near $80 million, multi-pronged federal attack against Asian carp.

"This is a serious challenge, a serious threat," Durbin said. "When it comes to the Asian carp threat, we are not in denial. We are not in a go-slow mode. We are in a full attack, full-speed ahead mode. We want to stop this carp from advancing."

First we had the Car Czar and now Soetorobama has appointed a Carp Czar. Evidently the threat to national security from this invasive species of fish is so pressing that Barry was forced to appoint another unelected crony into a position of power. The imperial president is advancing his power grabbing. Barry should have named the Portuguese water dog he for the girls Incitatus, but no one would get the reference.
