    And people on the right wonder why people ignore them sometimes or just call them crazy. It's because of rhetoric like this.

    Yes, what Obama said was horrible and if he were to make good on that claim I would support complete impeachment charges. However, to say what we have is worse than kings or dictators is simply stupid rhetoric.
    that is what people thought about Hitler in 39

    So in reality Obama is on pace to issue the least amount of executive orders of any modern President.

    Kind of makes the rhetoric of an Obama Presidency acting like a dictator seem ridiculous wouldn't you agree?

    not when you listen to what he says, he likes the power. Carter and Clinton both issued quite a few as well.

    No, he didn't except in your world of make believe, assumption, and apparently the mutant power to read the future. In the real world, he stated he'd use an Executive Order. COULD he use an executive order to attempt to make laws and act unconstitutionally? Yes. Could he also use an executive order in a perfectly constitutional way that doesn't create a new law? Yes. Its really quite easy to see how it's interpreted that way because it'd be ACTUALLY READING WHAT HE SAID instead of reading it and then making assumptions and guesses as to what he actually meant or what he actually is going to do in the future. Shocking, I know.

    I guess you are just showing everyone that you like to strech the true and tell lies about other posters, namely, me. I'd tone down the personal attacks.
    No, I demonstrated the exact same thing you did in your original post. Did I "quote" you, as you're so apt to point out over and over again worthlessly? No, I simply "explained what [you] were saying."

    I kind of get from listening to him that he is willing to use executive orders to get things done because Congress can't. Are you saying Congress isn't having issues passing some of the most basic things?

    And so did Reagan...not sure your point?

    As long as the GOP House and the GOP filibusters continue to try to tank Mr. Obama, and with it our economy, EOs are the order of the day .
