Tell Me Again Why Czars Should Be Vetted By Congress?

From The Political and Financial Markets Commentator

This Is Not About Sexual Orientation, But About Our Children In The Schools

I read this story regarding Kevin Jennings, the Obama Czar for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools back in June in Atlas Shrugs, so it is not new and it not just surfacing today. It is yet another example of how the Czars, appointed with no vetting by Congress (and obviously none by the Obama Administration), would most likely not have attained these positions had Congressional hearings been held, and rightfully so.

(Atlas Shrugs)”President Obama has appointed Kevin Jennings, founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) — which sponsored the conference that produced the notorious “Fistgate” scandal (in which young teens were guided on how to perform dangerous homosexual perversions including “fisting”) — to head up “Safe Schools” efforts at the Department of Education. Jennings is a vicious, anti-religious bigot who once said “[F–k] ‘em” to the “Religious Right.” He supports promoting homosexuality and gender confusion as normative to even young students. He made that comment in a New York City church…”

On the extremely positive side, Kevin Jennings has a record of trying to end bullying and discrimination in schools. Some of the positions and views he has taken, however, are extremely targeted at topics that fit his agenda, but not the agenda of school children. His discussion about drug use in his book is one that some might say could be utilized as a story to provide a deterrent for children. This deterrence could be accomplished in a different way. If Czars required vetting by Congress, as it appears they do, would this man have been confirmed or even nominated? Doubtful.
