    Bush issued quite a few more executive orders than Obama has. Did you feel he, Bush, was ruling by executive order.
    Reagan issued more than either Bush or Obama and yet he is considered a hero among many Republicans. Why is it all right for them to issue more than Obama but Obama be accused of improperly issuing them?

    The same as always! He is a leftist liberal, and would give his personal integrity for his president!

    By issuing his directives as "memoranda" rather than executive orders, Obama has downplayed the extent of his executive actions.

    WASHINGTON — President Obama has issued a form of executive action known as the presidential memorandum more often than any other president in history — using it to take unilateral action even as he has signed fewer executive orders.

    When these two forms of directives are taken together, Obama is on track to take more high-level executive actions than any president since Harry Truman battled the "Do Nothing Congress" almost seven decades ago, according to a USA TODAY review of presidential documents.

    Most of his actions exceed his powers as president. However, with Boehner and McConnell in charge of Congress, it is very unlikely that Congress will challenge Obama. In fact, Boehner, especially, seems to endorse the radical plans of Obama. The rich want a class system wherein the poor are given the narcotic of welfare and suppressed with cheap wages with the supply of cheap labor always exceeding the demand for labor because of illegal immigration. Furthermore, the poor face the future with little family because abortion is especially devastating to minorities and to the lower class. Meanwhile, billionaires have islands of debauchery and use their wealth and power to escape prosecution for their unspeakable depravities that attract the rich and powerful to the depravities that wealth cannot mask.

    And you claim you don't know what corporatism is.

    Hint, you're looking right at it.

    The number of orders issues has nothing to do with it and is a red herring.
