    If it is in the presidents power to regulate who the government does business with and this is signed then I am happy. If it isnt in his power and he does it then I am not happy. I am starting to get concerned with end runs around the Constitution.

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

    People supporting this IMO are using the excuse of "The ends justify the means", however, the stage is set for a GOP president to do the same thing.
    It's not legislating via executive order. Obama already has authority over government contracts.

    No, you just have this self-sustaining circle of hate for the man. You never gave a crap about right-wing executive orders.

    Politician criticizes opposing party for action then takes same action when in power? No. That never happens.

    Those politicians didn't promise "change", did they? No, they didn't.

    But we all know who did, don't we?

    Well, considering I campaigned locally and voted for him the first time, that dog doesn't hunt. The dislike only came after he proved himself a liar and incompetent. And yes, I always gave a crap about EOs that go beyond the grant of the Executive.

    Perhaps we could save a ton of money.

    Who needs a Congress anyway?

    3.)What about immigration law changes by EO? Are those fabrications, and strawmen as well?

    Tim-
    1.) nope that has nothgin to do with it either. This EO is legal and nothing is wrong with it no power is over stepped.
    2.) what about them? not familiar with them nor do they matter to this EO and the facts associated with them. If theres EOs you dont like start a thread about them. They are meanignless to this topic LMAO
    3.) yes they factually are since they have nothing to do with this topic.

    thank you for gaian proving facts rights and your own posts and others wrong.
