@ Radish and Mikefive – It does seem that the President has taken the position that it’s time “to do something, even if it’s wrong”. The life raft is filling with water and because the Senate and HoR won’t let bills advance for votes on how to get rid of the water, the President is bailing it out by himself. I have sympathy for his position and great disgust with Reid and Boehnor and wonder what else the POTUS can do if the legislature refuses to let things happen.And while the executive orders issued may be fewer in number than presidents past, there is debate on the degree to which they ‘make law’ rather than implement law. People have been fired, gone to jail and been fined for doing the right thing, a delivery driver who stopped to help at an accident comes to mind, he lost his job. Whether or not you agree with the President’s actions, they are actions, and that is more than we are getting from Congress. He has invited them to participate. I hope they do.Respectfully,C.
