Last time I checked Executive Orders were not laws.
Michael Savage is very amusing though.

Let me ask you, how many countries has Ahmadinejad bombed or invaded? Counting the last one, none.
I'm no math wizard, but I think Bush is slightly closer to Hitler's total than Ahmadinejad.

None of those 10 executive orders is that bad. I don't really understand what the problem is. The only way you would have a problem with any of those is if you were an ignorant, self-righteous, sexist, gay-bashing elitist. In fact, every single one of those acts is a progressive move in the right direction. Kudos to "Obama Bin Laden".

Mike Savage lists some good AND bad Executive Orders as suppositions of a projected win in November. But the race is not decided yet and I won't weigh in on these except to reiterate my own political projections based on current campaigning trends from the Obama camp.
IF Methuselah McCain gets in, we'll need more than 2 terms of office to accomplish the change necessary, he's that slow and methodical. Things may not even get done.
IF Obama bin Laden gets in, we'll see the most idealistic and overblown president yet seated, who'll be wasting America's time with lofty long shots and reaching for his veto pen as often as Congress reaches for its override vote.
IF Hill(Billy) Clint One gets in, we'll see realistic change and progress until challenged by powerful Redudlican party members in Congress. After that it'll be a hesitant President. (Hey I made a funny!)
But seriously, the Prez can only propose, Congress disposes. In Obama's case, the prez will be the dream, Congress the reality. Obamites may then wax chaotic and riot like spoilt children and furthur ruin the change America needs.

I might add that these quotes are not based on the opinion of Michael Savage, but quotes taken directly from BarrackObama.com
So we get "federal hate crimes legistation" and "reinvigorate enforcement at the Department of Justice's Criminal Section." We don't know if those quotes are actually connected together into a full idea on BarrackObama.com, just that those two phrases come from there. And I don't see anything particularly bad about reinvigorating "enforcement at the Department of Justice's Criminal Section
• Obama enacts stronger “federal hate crimes legislation” to “reinvigorate enforcement at the Department of Justice's Criminal Section.”
Here we have "a fund to help people refinance their mortgages and provide comprehensive supports to innocent homeowners." There's no verb in there, but I guess we can assume Obama would support that. You may disagree with the policy, but I don't see anything particularly objectional about that quote.
• Obama creates “a fund to help people refinance their mortgages and provide comprehensive supports to innocent homeowners.”
All we have here is "meet with the leaders of all nations, friend and foe." Nothing wrong with meeting with them, and there's certainly nothing in there that BarrackObama.com indicates that he would sign any non-agression treaties. That's just Michael Savage making it up.
• Obama, following through on his pledge to “meet with the leaders of all nations, friend and foe,” signs a non-agression pact with the Hitler of Iran.
All we have here is "poverty around the world in half by 2015." Again, no verb. You'd think if Obama really wanted to spend $50 billion, Savage would ahve put that number in quotes. But he didn't, so he's just pulling a number out of thin air.
• Obama doubles foreign aid to $50 billion to cut “poverty around the world in half by 2015.”
No quote here. Just Michael Savage's opinion.
• Obama removes our troops from Iraq, leaving a power vacuum filled by Iran.
No quote here either. More of just Michael Savage's ranting, nothing taken directly from BarrackObama.com.
• Obama enacts socialized medicine, destroying small businesses with taxes to pay for illegal alien healthcare.
Again, no quote. Just opinion.
• Obama enacts amnesty for illegal aliens.
No quote here either. Michael Savage continues to put words in Obama's mouth.
• Obama enacts legislation demanding carbon friendly cars, hammering the final nail in the coffin of the US car industry.
Here we have "women and minority-owned businesses." And again, no verb. So Obama uses this phrase somewhere on his web site, but the rest is made up by Savage.
• Barack Obama enact laws to reinforce affirmative action by funneling money to “women and minority-owned businesses.”
No quote here, again.
• Obama repeals the Bush tax cuts.
And finally, no quote here, either. Just Michael Savage making a guess.
• Obama enacts the Employment Non-Discrimination Act to entrench the power of the homosexual lobby.
Obama, following through on his pledge to “meet with the leaders of all nations, friend and foe,” signs a non-agression pact with the Hitler of Iran.
