    The only thing the right wing does is complain and obstruct.

    “If I can’t fail enough with my current policies, I will force even more on you!”.
    Get ready for Executive order #478: The government will take 100% of your paycheck and decide what you should and shouldn’t buy with it.

    A bit of disinformation in this cartoon since President Obama has completed only five of his eight years. He is on pace to doing about 267 (+/-) over both of his terms. Depending on whether or not he stays away from trying to change enacted laws or not, that’s pretty good.

    “So Carter had 320 in his one-term disaster… and who do we compare BS/BHO to?”

    Making true A/B comparisons between Presidents would be truly difficult, Gresh, since different Presidents are faced with different problems of different difficulty.

    It isn’t the number that counts… It’s the content that does.

    I see that Democrat Harry Truman tops the list when it comes to abuse of power.

    “I see that Democrat Harry Truman tops the list when it comes to abuse of power.”

    The use of Executive Orders does not necessarily indicate abuse of power. A perusal of the titles of Executive Order titles and random reading of Executive Orders would show that they are mostly innocuous. They can be found at:

    Number of executive orders normalized to be number per day — so it corrects for the number of years in office: Obama has issued fewer than any president for over a century.

    “What about Bush’s signing statements that said he could ignore parts of bills at will?”

    Signing Statements should cause more concern than Executive Orders.

    there are legal and proper executive orders, that comply with laws passed by Congress.
    -
    But Obama has written executive orders that are creating new laws or changing laws on the books, even the laws on Obamacare passed in early 2010…..change after change.
    -
    I think Clinton wrote executive orders to have agencies carry out actions to comply with treaty laws that the Senate refused to approve! Obama is now using EPA to carry out Global Warming international law that has never been approved by the US Senate, isn’t that true? That is circumventing both Congress and the Constitution.
