I never thought I would be able to say it, but under President B.H. Obama a government position has been eliminated. It is a new position that he created, but it’s a step in the right direction. The only problem I have is with the position he choose to eliminate. In this act, and in getting rid of this position, Obama conclusively confirmed that he lied to the American people and has no intention of keeping his promises.
Ethics Czar, Norm Eisen, has been transferred to the Czech Republic to serve as U.S. ambassador. The position has been eliminated, so there is no longer a person in the White House dedicated to transparency and ethical government. Obviously the President’s commitment to ethics is not as substantial as he would have us believe. But at least it’s one less White House position.
