Republican heavyweights aren’t too happy about President Barack Obama’s recess appointment of Norm Eisen as U.S. ambassador to the Czech Republic. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Rep. Darrell norm,eisen,darrell,issa,charles,grassleyIssa, R-Calif., [pictured] call the appointment "particularly inappropriate" in a letter to White House Counsel Bob Bauer, The Hill reports. Issa is chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee,

Eisen, the White House ethics czar, is the brains behind many of the administration's ethics and transparency policies.

"By calling off a face-to-face meeting in favor of a recess appointment, the White House sent the message that the President is not interested in hearing the concerns of Republican Members of Congress," Grassley and Issa write in the letter.
