    Executive orders

    I believe Obama is abusing his power. I think that the whole "executive order" thing was designed to be used like, maybe ONCE in a total state of emergency when there is no time for congress to convene. Obama has signed about 150 or so. Is this just a clever way of being a dictator?

    I forgot to place a check mark for the poll. It was just going to be Yes or No.

    If that was a guess (150) - it was a fantastic one.

    According to wikipedia, he has used it 153 times so far.

    BTW - GW Bush used it (again, according to wikipedia) 291 times.

    And FDR used it 573 times...in 1933 alone.

    I think that the EO has become a very dangerous tool of the President. The past few administrations have made ample use of the EO to essentially bypass the Congress or legislate from the Oval Office. As such, the use of the EO needs to be restricted.

    Not all EO is improper, but they have been more and more abused. Less we restrict the usage to proper means, it will just continue to grow in abuse and misuse.

    Restricted, exactly. As I said, I don't believe it was intended to be used as a tool for dictatorship, but if he uses it to try to ban guns, that's exactly what it would amount to. At which point, would he not then become impeachable (as if he isn't already)?

    If you are speaking about he whole ammunition EO, then to my knowledge, this has not happened. Yesterday, some of my white wing friends on FB said that Obama issued an EO for this. I asked, where's the link showing that he did? Others asked as well. Nothing, nadda, zilch! The OP of the post said he'll post the link. That was over 12HR ago. I guess Obama hasnt done anything about the EO.

    Has he issued this order or has he not? It's a yes or no kind of answer.


    thank you
