I wanted to like Obama, but I just can't.  Here's your good-faith right here.  I think I'm having what Kim du Toit called a red curtain of blood moment.

Obama climate czar has socialist ties
Group sees 'global governance' as solution

Until last week, Carol M. Browner, President-elect Barack Obama's pick as global warming czar, was listed as one of 14 leaders of a socialist group's Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which calls for "global governance" and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change.

By Thursday, Mrs. Browner's name and biography had been removed from Socialist International's Web page, though a photo of her speaking June 30 to the group's congress in Greece was still available.

Socialist International, an umbrella group for many of the world's social democratic political parties such as Britain's Labor Party, says it supports socialism and is harshly critical of U.S. policies.

The group's Commission for a Sustainable World Society, the organization's action arm on climate change, says the developed world must reduce consumption and commit to binding and punitive limits on greenhouse gas emissions.

Mr. Obama, who has said action on climate change would be a priority in his administration, tapped Mrs. Browner last month to fill a new position as White House coordinator of climate and energy policies. The appointment does not need Senate confirmation.

Mr. Obama's transition team said Mrs. Browner's membership in the organization is not a problem and that it brings experience in U.S. policymaking to her new role.

"The Commission for a Sustainable World Society includes world leaders from a variety of political parties, including British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who succeeded Tony Blair, in serving as vice president of the convening organization," Obama transition spokesman Nick Shapiro said.

"Carol Browner was chosen to help the president-elect coordinate energy and climate policy because she understands that our efforts to create jobs, achieve energy security and combat climate change demand integration among different agencies; cooperation between federal, state and local governments; and partnership with the private sector," Mr. Shapiro said in an e-mail.

Mrs. Browner ran the Environmental Protection Agency under President Clinton. Until she was tapped for the Obama administration, she was on the board of directors for the National Audubon Society, the League of Conservation Voters, the Center for American Progress and former Vice President Al Gore's Alliance for Climate Protection.

Her name has been removed from the Gore organization's Web site list of directors, and the Audubon Society issued a press release about her departure from that organization

    I just commented on that over at your Atlas Shrugged topic. I don't know if Browner has to be confirmed or not (I lean towards not), but if she does, start writing your elected officials. Regardless, this sets off serious concerns as to the content of character for his other appointees.

    She doesn't have to be confirmed.
    If she has to be confirmed, do you think Obamalamadingdong would have appointed her to this position?
    As Machiavelli said, if you want to know the Prince, know the people he keeps around him.

    He has made some decent appointments aside from CIA director.
    This isn't one of them. 

    It's a REALLY BAD ONE!!!!!!! :banghead :cuss :cuss :vomit

    I find it humorous that a communist wants to be a czar.

    Did anyone really expect anything else?

    Ironic, yes.

    But what really disturbs me is the new trend to want to create new high level gov't positions over this and that and instill them with the title of "czar"...kinda conditioning us peons to accept that leaders in government are higher than us and should be able to rule over us at will.

    I should hope not. Mobs of rogue woodworking tools would suck to repel.

    It was one of Obama's flunkys that said BO will be ready to "rule from day one." Rule? All hail his Imperial Highness, Barack the First. or was that Barack the Worst?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the whole czar thing start with the war on drugs back in the 1980s? Pretty much snowballed from there. When I hear the word czar used in a political context I envision someone who is perceived to be all-knowing and wise, but, in reality, they are just another clueless politician in need of a real job.

    You know, I think you're right.  I seem to recall it being used for the war on drugs.
    But it seems to me Obama is making far more use of it than anyone used to.  Just my two cents. YMMV

    I thought about it and I like the idea that he is going to have radicals in his administration, bring them all in. This country has been flirting with the communist ideology since the 60's. Let's just get it over with now for the sake of our children. Once the mind dead masses realise that that there is no free lunch and that these communist ideas that sound so good just don't work. Maybe..just maybe we can put this dog to bed and fix this country.

    Just through the frog into the pot of boiling water and watch him jump.  This lukewarm water just feels too good.

    Well, it certainly is going to be interesting. All the more reason for everyone to get actively involved with their elected representatives.

    Yeah, "Drug Czar" was a position created by the Senate in 1982 to designate a single person to coordinate the nation's War on Drugs (yet another example of title creep).  I guess "Drug Commisar" wasn't cool while Gorby and the Evil Empire were still around.

    As to Barry letting the dogs out, I say, bring it.  I want these guys to get power-drunk.  The people demanded change and change they shall receive, until they choke on it.  Let's give the public a nice big dose of unfiltered transnational socialism.  Let's redistribute the wealth and come up with lots of five-year plans to convert America to a carbon-neutral, Green economy (although, just like a watermelon, it will be red on the inside).

    Let's prove that Barry really is the Son of Carter by creating rampant inflation while simultaneously holding down economic recovery (not easy to do unless you are creating trillions of dollars of money and then spending it on everything except economic development).

    Bring it.

    So I didn't object to Obama's pick of scientists who understood the reasons behind climate change, and I took a few smites for that. But picking someone with a socialist view of the role of government and who probably has a specific (authoritarian) plan for carrying out her policies, I do not agree with that. I don't think the government should not do anything about climate change, but she will probably take it way too far. I can't see straight, good night.
