List of Obama's Czars

(more info on each czar here on Glenn Beck's website)

 

August 21, 2009 - 5:26 ET

As of July 20, 2009:

The Brainroom counts 32 czars in the Obama administration, based on media reports from reputable sources that have identified the official in question as a czar.  In addition, President Obama has said that he will create the position of cyber czar, and there have been media reports that there could be a health insurance czar and a copyright czar. When and if those positions are filled, that would bring the total to 35.
