Obama issues 'executive orders by another name'

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.

Tuesday, he used a memorandum to declare Bristol Bay, Alaska, off-limits to oil and gas exploration.


To American companies most likely. Foreign will get free reign.



Obama has made prolific use of memoranda despite his own claims that he's used his executive power less than other presidents. "The truth is, even with all the actions I've taken this year, I'm issuing executive orders at the lowest rate in more than 100 years," Obama said in a speech in Austin last July. "So it's not clear how it is that Republicans didn't seem to mind when President Bush took more executive actions than I did."


Bush didn't say this.



Obama was against EO's before he was for them, and to get around the tally?

He is gonna call them something else!

Dare I say would bull snip by any other name smell as 'sweet' ?




Obama has issued 195 executive orders as of Tuesday. Published alongside them in the Federal Register are 198 presidential memoranda — all of which carry the same legal force as executive orders.





Hardly a 'biased' site.

Let the Hunger Games begin!!!!

And yet, the Republicans remain silent for the most part......

Maybe Boehner will cry and make things all better?

Screw em all! Because they sure as hell don't mind giving the rest of us the cold hard shaft!

A rose or skunk weed by any other name is still a rose or skunk weed.

That'S what I am saying.

Does the same thing as an EO?

It's an EO.

Let's get one thing straight. In the two elections, that President Obama was running, the two were the latter. I didn't like President Obama as a selection and I didn't like the other two. So, who was more equipped? Neither one of them. Maybe, you will teach your children to vote.

Simple as that.


You want to blame it on the President, but you have no one to blame but yourselves.

No teary eyes from me.

So let me get this straight... you agree that there are never any good options to vote for, yet you are criticizing people for not voting? Maybe I'm just not understanding your intentions, but isn't that a bit hypocritical?

The fact is that you won't get any good options with the way things are currently set up. All the way from the White house, to county and small town level politics the positions are being bought off and cherry picked by those with loads of cash and an agenda to push.

The system as it stands is broken, and until we do something to either fix it, or find a better way of doing things nothing will change.

The last way to get any real change is by voting in the current paradigm. It's going to take way more than that.

When President Obama went for elections, there was no good running mate to choose from. That is what I am saying. With Bush and Clinton there was. Even then, that was debatable, Practically no debate with his. No one was going to vote for the old timer Mc Cain. Not even me. It is the only reason he won. Seat was given to him. Not earned. I strike all comments.

There are decent options to vote for, stop looking for the R or D only. This obsession with only those two parties has got to stop.

The two party nonsense is what creates the trap.
