    So, simply that he is "planning" to do it, does not mean that he has done it, so is that the strawman you are referring too? What about the 32 EO's changing the ACA? What about immigration law changes by EO? Are those fabrications, and strawmen as well?

    Re: White House: Obama to sign order banning anti-gay discrimination

    I read the earlier posts and then sort of skipped to the end so somebody else has probably brought it up. But the most ironic thing about all of Obama's executive orders that bypass Congress and legislate are especially ironic when he was so critical of executive orders issued by President Bush. But I'm quite used to candidate Obama bearing absolutely no resemblance to President Obama. You can't believe anything uttered by this man is his conviction or the truth.

    Nor do you. But that's par for the course. The fact is the POTUS was already told no on this matter by the only body granted the power to make legislation and now he's legislating through EO.

    I'd say that I just can't wait to hear you squeal when some other POTUS legislates like this in a way that goes against your "facts", but I don't really want that to happen either.

While the number of Obama's executive orders have been less than past presidents, the impact of Obama's executive orders have been massive.

    I agree with you on this. If one doesn't expect future presidents of mimic the use of EO to circumvent congress in the future, their elevator don't go all the way to the top. The same people cheering the use of EO will be against their use if the next president is a Republican. Perhaps we have entered the era of the ends justify the means. But perhaps it has always been that way, President Obama just has the balls to push everything to the brink of the breaking point.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Re: White House: Obama to sign order banning anti-gay discrimination

    What if Obama received a political donation (bribe) of one million dollars by the LGBT activist a few days before Obama issued this Executive Order ?

    Sunday/Palms Springs

    Re: UC Irvine commencement speech, you sure had a lot of unhappy campers. "Obama ruined our graduation." Why would Obama do that ?

    That's only if there's ever another GOP president.

    Nothing in the U.S. Constitution guarantees the GOP equal time in the White House.
