    While I do not debate that Obama has likely done far more executive orders, it looks like these numbers are completely off and the specific executive orders do (at least the first two) have anything to do with what is said here.

      If anything at all is "off" in my post -- should we just forget the entire matter of Dicatator Edicts ??

        Heck no!

        If I came off implying we should ignore the dictator edicts because the post is inaccurate, that was not my intent.

        Presedential decrees should not happen, and on the rare occasssion that they do need to happen they should require a vote from congress in order to stay in place past the short period of time required between the edict and the vote that says its an ok one, or not and turns it into law. If it cant make it to the floor it should automatically be removed.

        Checks and balances must be there. The main point of the post is valid, but the data is not. I would love to find some valid data with which to make a case from.
