Obama abuses executive orders

This is in response to a recent letter that stated “there is nothing wrong with Obama’s use of executive orders.”

Those who criticize Obama's and others’ use of executive orders need to get their facts straight. The executive orders of past presidents significantly differ from Obama’s executive orders.

Obama cannot circumvent the U.S. Constitution, which specifies the president can only use this privilege if the Congress is on vacation, and only to execute in an emergency without defying the U.S. Constitution. Obama has used his executive orders privilege in the most illegal and criminal ways.

No president in history has abused their executive orders privilege as much as Obama. So all of you that too quickly criticize others, take heed.
