So for some time now I have seen the same lie repeated over and over again by the rights pundits and bloggers- that Obama has created the most Czar positions (or heads of agencies or advisors, who are generally appointed by the president and in some cases not confirmed by the Senate) within the government of any president.
So let’s look at the truth.
In modern times:
Jimmy Carter has 2. Reagan 1. George H.W. Bush had 2. Bill clinton had 8 , George W Bush had 33. Obama has 38,.
So the turth is George W Bush oversaw the largest rise of the Czar position in US history- by a stunning margin. And yet the right continues to rant that this was somehow Obamas doing.
Just another example of the liew willfully put out by the republican and tea party leaderships, and the willingness of their followers to blindly parrot these talking points without doing even a few secons of fact checking.
