Even though President Barack Obama gets a lot of flack for using EXECUTIVE ORDERS, he ranks #17 out of the 42 Presidents who preceded him. This page has a nice chart that shows how many Executive Orders each President has issued. It's accurate as of June 2016.

Number of Executive Orders, by President: www.dailydot.com...

Here is the U.S. Government's list of President Barack Obama's Executive Orders, organized by SUBJECT.

www.archives.gov...

Which of these Executive Orders should President Donald Trump begin canceling/reversing/overturning after he takes office on January 20, 2017? On the surface, some of them look helpful, like most of the those related to the Armed Forces. But, what's good for BOB can be bad for BETTY. I guess we'll just have to trust the Trump administration to cancel the ones they feel are doing MORE HARM THAN GOOD.

From the looks of that first chart, there have been THOUSANDS Presidential Executive Orders, since George Washington issued the first one on June 8, 1789. Maybe many of those are no longer in effect after subsequent Presidents scrubbed them. Could President Trump go back through the entire catalog of Executive Orders and start zapping away, if he wanted to?

It it is at least refreshing to see a post not saying Obama has a MAGIC pen.


I will look through the list. I count 3...2...1 , though, before a Trump supporter says all or most without reading them.

I'm sure his cronies already have a few in mind what they want to get rid of. First somebody just needs to explain to Trump that an EO has nothing to do with lunch.

He said he would use his pen and phone to take on congress in ways he could under the law.. True. He faced an obstructionist Congress that wouldn't let him do anything.

Bill Clinton issued 120 more Executive Orders than Barack Obama. That Congress must have really given him a hard time!

Obama Has Lost In The Supreme Court More Than Any Modern President

Not to mention lower court cases lost.

I am not sure the Republicans will allow him to go 4 years. We'll see.

They don't like Obama, but their hatred of Trump goes deep.

Too far right for the Republicans. It's gonna be a comedy bonanza.

I wonder what they would do if they went conservative?

He made a LOT of Republican enemies during his campaign! They may smile and kiss his ring now, but if I were Trump, I'd watch my back! He may be peaking high now, but its a long way down, should he slip.
