    President Obama has issued to date 217 Executive orders.

    If you were to become POTUS in Jan 2017- which ones would you rescind.

    (if you "All of them" then explain how long it took you to read all 217.)

    I would not read any of them and I would rescind them all simply because of his ideology means the likelihood of them would be bad for the country.

    My kind of thinking! Anything he's done that was "good" for the country, was just a side issue that happened without any intention on his part! :sleeping_2:
    JMHO of course!!

    Hey Salty, my friend, would you rescind the 297 executive orders that G. Bush put out? Just curious.

    I don't know how many of G.W. Bush's Executive Orders Salty would want to rescind. I'll let Salty answer that himself.

    If I could, I'd MOST CERTAINLY rescind group of W's ill-concieved executive orders that are collectively associated with the post-9/11 hysertia that resuted in the unconstitutial Patriot[?] Act.

    "W" did the US a HUGE DISSERVICE to freedom-loving Americans when those bunch of blatantly unconstitutional and very burdensome federal regulations--all of which apparently were supported by majorities of both parties in the legislative branch--were laid on the backs of the hard-working middle class American people who had little or no say at all in their subsequent, difficult attempt to comply with an already burdensome set of federal regulations, of which most common Americans considered to be of questionable value.

    I don't know if there's a statute of limitations regarding how far back a new POTUS can go in the attempt to rescind the executive orders of those who preceded him in the Oval Office, but if there isn't, whoever the next POTUS is, he needs to go back some 50+ years and re-examine the subsequent effects that the previous half dozen or so POTUS adminstrations' executive orders have had on our nation (especially its private sector economies). I'm sure there's a bunch of executive orders he ought to rescind--and the sooner the better!

    Crabby - the answer would be the same - I would consider my decision based on the merits of each individual order.


    I doubt there is any SOL.

    But WP does have a good point

    Salty, I knew you were a reasonable man. That is what I would do also.

    I'm betting that means you would rescind them all. Or very close to it.

    However I would especially focus on everything with regards to illegal immigration and environmental. They would all go.

    It amounts to the same thing since it was deemed to be passed by Congress Furthermore it is unconstitutional since it is a revenue bill which can only originate in the House.

    Lets keep in mind that his Thread is about EO's - NOT LAWS.

    But am I going off OP, if I mention, throwing the baby out with the bathwater?

    Paraphrasing from "we have to pass it so we know what's in it", :

    We need to delete everything since we don't know what's in it.
