This is the result of people in office for their own benefit and not that of the people. Obama appears to have an agenda, not sure what it is, but it has a communist slant to it.

I lost interest pretty early on when I realized the writer provides factually inaccurate information to try to prove his point. In George Bush's first term resulted in 171 Executive orders. Barack Obama has issuesd 147 as of January 3.

Just write a letter about how much you dislike the President and how disappointed you are that he was re-elected. Don't make up facts!

Well now it sounds like our President is planning an exec order for gun control.

That's PRESIDENT OBAMA to all of you. Start with respecting the highest held political office in our land before you try to give an opinion that means very little to most readers. Also get the facts.

He's an idiot. Executive orders should be used to give guidance to his staff, NOT do Congress' job.

TJR63PA - you haven't been following the history of executive orders over the past 80 years or so have you?

I love the disagrees on my post listing the true factual numbers of executive offers. I take that you three folks support misinformation.

It's totally annoying when one side (almost always Republicans) point to the other and accuse them of the very thing they themselves have done to a greater degree. Can't wait for them to bring up signing statements! And falsified evidence presented just to get us to use up our bloated military materiel around the world! Whoops. They already did that.

"true factual numbers of executive offers."

So, if they issue an executive offer to take our guns, we can politely decline?

"Don't make up facts" ?? Actually in this case it's a compliment to MR Obama. Have you never heard that "imitation is the most sincere form of flatery"? MR Obama, an employee of mine, constantly floods the airways with made-up "facts". You can ALWAYS tell when he's lying. HIS LIPS ARE MOVING!!

Its they the number of executive orders, its what they direct. You can direct your children to do what is right, but if you try to make them do things they shouldn't do, that is wrong.

TJR, I agree. An executive order that attacks our second amendment is a pretty serious thing. It's a substance issue more than a quantity issue.

There have been many executive orders over the years that have been on much more serious subject matter then whether some Rambo wannabee can keep their 30 clip of ammo. So MTOMTO why don't you present us some specifics on the substance instead of just casting a fluffy statement into the wind?

Stonewall you're talking about President Obama, you must thinking about Fox News.

"There have been many executive orders over the years that have been on much more serious subject matter then whether some Rambo wannabee can keep their 30 clip of ammo."

That sounds a lot like one person's opinion.

of course you could do some research into executive orders over the past 80 years but then again that would take some work...
