    But Bush’s executive orders for torture, spying on citizens, etc were okay.

    Could you translate that as “I AM the law”? (The state, is me).

    Exhaustive work being able to prove what you are saying rather than just pointing fingers.

    Not that I disagree, but, if that IS your position then why do you think it’s OK for Obama to bypass the constitution with an executive order?

    No they weren’t. What bearing does that have on anything? Bush was a terrible president. Obama is as well. Debating about which one is worse is like arguing whether it’s better to burn to death or die by pancreatic cancer. Neither is preferable.

    The issue is how much power should the President have. Not ‘Well The Republicans got to do it, so should we’. Honestly, half the comments on these pages come down to ‘Well so and so did it..’ It’s like reading the transcript for a murder trial as conducted by a sixth grade class.

    "W"’s list of EOs that violated law and the Constitution was pretty long, but the did have Cheney’s “Unitary presidency” in mind for eight years, and two illegal wars based on lies, and of course, pure, poor, judgement.

    What is Obama to do? The Congress will not pass anything constructive. The GOP has been purchased by the lobbyists and the radical rich, so their first motto is: Do no harm to our beloved millionaires." The Congress forced Obama’s hand, I support Obama’s action, you should too.

    On gun control none yet but an estimated 19 orders to be issued soon. Most I hear are related to existing laws and regulations and improving mental health issues so OK.

    But he has issued executive orders negating current federal laws (some of them) concerning immigration and, should you be interested – here is the register for his others.

    Somebody buy Gorrell a clue. Doing illustrations for Rush Limbaugh is a silly job.

    Not true. They’re threatening impeachment for overstepping his authority. There’s a huge difference.

    And none of them really do anything new. Well, spend more money redoing the stuff we already do and a few postit notes to remind himself to appoint another czar to push more paper. The mental health thing is ok. The money for resource officers is ok.

    Whatever.
