Noted KKK Kleagle Pans Black President for Acting Unconstitutionally, Uppity

Robert K. Byrd, eminent scholar on the evils of miscegenation, raps Obama for a power-grab.

Snark aside, the old coot does have a point...

Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), the longest serving Democratic senator, is criticizing President Obama’s appointment of White House “czars” to oversee federal policy, saying these executive positions amount to a power grab by the executive branch.

In a letter to Obama on Wednesday, Byrd complained about Obama’s decision to create White House offices on health reform, urban affairs policy, and energy and climate change. Byrd said such positions “can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials.”

...but not much of one. The real sin is that huge parts of our country's economy are being nationalized; Byrd is merely quibbling about which part of the federal government gets to control historically private activity.
