Obama appointed 45 czars to replace elected officials, chain email claims




A chain email that’s been circulating for years -- listing what it claims are President Barack Obama’s "accomplishments," except they’re all negative -- has recently gone into heavy rotation again, judging by reader requests to fact-check it.
By now, we’ve fact-checked three of the dozens of "accomplishments" listed in the email, and each has earned a rating of Pants on Fire.
The claim we will check here is that Obama is the "first president to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office."
We took a look at Obama’s czars back in 2009, when Sen. John McCain asserted that Obama had more czars than the Romanovs. We concluded that Romanovs had 18 and Obama had 28, so we rated it True.

So what is a czar, anyway?
The term "czar" is unofficial -- something that is more often used by the media than by the government itself. As best as we can tell, itlink title that the media likes to use to shorthand someone’s real position.

Ditto for the "acting Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Financial Stability and Chief Troubled Asset Relief Program Counsel," often called "TARP Czar."
How many czars does Obama have?
The claim that Obama has 45 czars appears to come from a 2011 report by Judicial Watch, a conservative advocacy group. The group counted 45 czars appointed by Obama and 18 other unfilled or planned czar positions.
By our count, that number is inflated.
For example, Valerie Jarrett is listed as the "Special Advisor Czar." The president has numerous special advisers like Jarrett. This suggests one could theoretically label every special advisor to the president a "czar."
A few others, such as the "Safe Schools Czar" and "War Czar," are positions started under Pr
