The President who once taunted Republicans in Congress with phrases like "elections mean something" and "I've got a pen, and I've got a phone" before signing a litany of executive orders, is now admonishing President-elect Trump on doing the same. In an interview posted this morning with National Public Radio, Obama said that while Trump would be "entirely within his lawful power" to sign executive orders, his "preference" should be to govern through bipartisan legislation.

IMO, Obama was lazy. And, he doesn't work well with others. It takes hard work, concerted effort to build relationships, and leadership to be able to work across the isle and get important things done. Obama preferred to "play golf" and use his phone and pen rather than do the hard work it takes to get things done legislatively.
Many of his EOs need to be scrapped.
"Our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term"
