The salaries aren't surprising and aren't the highest in civil service. Those are Senior Executive salary ranges.

Roosevelt, Reagan, Clinton, Bush I and II, Obama, and any future president all have or will have "commicars" (as you so named them). If you are going to have a problem with Obama having "czars" then you need to have a problem with any other president before and after also having czars.

Also, some of Obama's "czar" position are left over from the Bush administration.

D.C.'s Kinetic Tech Czar - washingtonpost.comJan 5, 2009 www.washingtonpost.com › Technology › Tech Policy - Similar



More crime and corruption ties have been discovered for
Vivek Kundra and the Obama White House. Thanks to Zach
Jones of the ZachJonesIsHome blog for the heads up.

From the Real Barack Obama blog:

“Update 03/17/09 15:30 pm ET: Thanks to RBO reader jd for forwarding the link for this info:

Owen Thomas at The Gawker reports that Vivek Kundra “pleaded guilty to a theft charge in 1997.”


Yusuf Acar, the D.C. computer security official accused of masterminding a multimillion-dollar embezzlement scam, told his co-conspirators that corruption was widespread in the city’s computer office, The Examiner has learned. Acar and former D.C. employee Sushil Bansal are accused of faking invoices and timesheets from contractors in order to skim money from the city. The pair was arrested last week.Several alleged co-conspirators were identified by initials in court papers but have not been charged with wrongdoing.”

Several alleged co-conspirators were identified by initials in court papers but have not been charged with wrongdoing.”

“Reportedly, “corruption was widespread in [the] office”, Bill Myers and Scott McCabe wrote in D.C.’s The Examiner:”

““What concerns us and the White House Counsel’s office is that Kundra and Bansal seem to have a very tight relationship that was not discussed during the vetting process,” says the White House source. The White House has determined that Kundra and Bansal also did business prior to Kundra’s taking the D.C. job. When Kundra worked for Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), it was as a consultant for a project at U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Bansal’s firm provided support to SAIC’s contract work at HHS.

“We’re still sorting things out,” says the White House source. “But there appears to be a lot more to be cleared up than we originally thought.””

White House CIO Vivek Kundra and His Beliefs About the Cloud

Cloud-based, data driven services can drive policy. What this requires are platforms that provide a base for interaction between constituents and stakeholders in federal agencies. Interoperability between agencies across platforms requires cloud-driven services with core sets of standards. In such an environment, apps provide a level of portability and means for decreasing the need for multiple on-premise servers to run one application.

Transparency for Kundra means the capability to get real-tine access to public data. The cloud makes that more of a reality.

I've come to the belief that 'fred call' has no sense of what he's saying/doing. He has bulemia for right wing media, eats as much as he can then regurgitates it throughout his posts/threads.

This person has no capacity for independent thought or reason and just blasts on and on quoting people and articles, without giving proper mention to their originators mind you.

No sense of argument, everything they read is infallible truth, any argument against isn't worthy of discussion because of this belief.

The worst thing about this thread is not that the OP is upset about the number of media-labeled 'czars' or that the president has advisors for various topics, but that each one can have a label that doesn't fit with their 'conservative, Christian, patriotic, white, male, republican' description.

I have to ask you OP, what is the point you're trying to get at?
Are you upset about who the president is being advised by?
If so, why?
Are you upset that the president requires so many advisors?
Are you upset by the association of Russian monarchs to American government?
If so, why?
Do you realize the irrationiality of disdain for 'czars' due to cold war tensions has no bearing, being that the communists overthrew the czars during the October revolution and thus have absolutely no associative properties other than their nation of origin?
Are you willing to have a serious, reasonable discussion and be able to quote sources in your replies?

Feel free to answer any one of these.

I agree with above poster. fred call is typing like he is one beer short of a six-pack. His latest thread is trying to link a supermodel's support for breast feeding to Obama taking away your rights. I say we ignore him. He just wants to write inflammatory subject matter then berate you for disagreeing.

EDITORIAL: Obama's risky-sex czar

WARNING: This editorial includes discussion of topics that are sexually graphic. Under usual circumstances, we would never entertain these subjects or the rancid language involved. In this case, however, a very unusual exception must be made because the issues are central to the background of a senior presidential appointee at the U.S. Department of Education who is in a position to influence how and what our children are taught in our nation's schools. Thus far, out of fear or squeamishness, there has been public hesitance to examine closely the beliefs of this individual because many are afraid even to touch the risky content. Our scruples cannot be used against us when traditional moral precepts need to be defended. Simply, the deep level of depravity involved in this subject cannot be portrayed without providing a couple of examples to illustrate the inappropriate content. Please do not read any further if you will be offended by sexually graphic language.
