    Obama-"Some gun control measures I can accomplish through executive action"

    He's already signed 10 times more executive orders than any President in history...he ought to be the expert.
    He's made a fine living the last four years side stepping the congress, and wiping his butt on our Constitution.
    I expect plenty more of the same for the next four as well.

    It would help your cause if you didn't make things up. I'm not an O supporter and really dislike the guy but let's be real here. FDR had 3466 and Obummer, at 143 as of December 7, 2012, hasn't even gotten close to that yet. I would not be surprised if he were to pass FDR at some point but then again, FDR had a few more years than anyone else to rack up the total.

    The numbers I have are quite a bit different than what you're speaking of...


    EXECUTIVE ORDERS ISSUED by US Presidents in the past 100 years+/-...

    Teddy Roosevelt - 3

    All Others until FDR - 0

    FDR - 11 in 16 years

    Truman - 5 in 7 years

    Ike - 2 in 8 years

    Kennedy - 4 in 3 years

    LBJ - 4 in 5 years

    Nixon - 1 in 6 years

    Ford - 3 in 2 years

    Carter - 3 in 4 years

    Reagan - 5 in 8 years

    Bush - 3 in 4 years

    Clinton - 15 in 8 years

    George W. Bush - 62 in 8 years

    Obama - 923 in 3 1/2 years!

    In fact there's another thread here discussing the same topic...https://www.smithandwessonforums.com/...your-eyes.html

    One guy swore it was true, and another swore it was a lie...I dunno

    Obama will do whatever suits his political agenda be it gun control,immigration reform,abortion...whatever. I see him as a liar of the worst kind. He believes he can govern with executive orders and bypass the congress when he pleases. Let him define something as reasonable such as gun laws or any thing else then he controls the debate. The media will not hold him accountable for anything and we have to pay attention and stand up and be counted. I'll be turning 70 in a few weeks and I never thought I would ever see anything like this. He cannot be trusted. Rant over. Regards Dick

    It helps to go to the actual true source (instead of passing along previously incorrect data). I'm not saying you did it on purpose, but if you check the National Archives, you may get a little better view:

    He had no respect for the way the Senate worked when he was there. As evidenced by his non voting record. Consistantly voting "absent" tells me he doesn't much care.

    Now if we put computers linked to the senate floor on all the golf carts in Hawaii he might not have that excuse anymore.....

    I can see him doing it with the thought that anything that gets overturned will be law until then and the damage will already be done before the 6 months or year or longer it takes for action against the orders.
