The Rev. Jesse Jackson said Sunday he is concerned about executive orders from President Bush in his last few months in office and the effect they could have on the incoming administration.
"Bush is signing away consumer and environmental laws. I mean they're running amok, you know," Jackson said.
Some Democrats in Congress have criticized several federal regulations enacted in the waning months of the Bush administration and are discussing whether some should be repealed when President-elect Barack Obama takes office in January.
The civil rights leader and former presidential hopeful also criticized the federal bailout of the financial industry and called for the outgoing president to help the ailing automotive industry.

Its nothing compared to Bubba’s last days.
Critical of one bailout but encourages another. I guess it depends on whose back is getting scratched.
Doubt he’ll be like Bubba, pardoning the connected felons.
Comes with territory.
I’m concerned about jesse’s mental state. (what a loon)
Irrelevance, thy name is Jessie Jackson.
Can’t a new president pull back executive orders or just change the previous order with another order? I forget.
One I remember in particular was an EO that Bubbah signed that allowed the burning of toxic chemicals in open pits at Area 51. There were a few of them connected to lawsuits brought by people working there and it was a means of getting around those lawsuits.
Still struggling to be relevant, I guess.
I think you are correct, in fact I believe W did that to some of Clinton’s orders when he took office.
Well, you know what Buckwheat?
I'm concerned about Obama’s First days...and all of those thereafter!
I thought Jesse Jackson was now irrelevent.
I saw on news scroll that Obama said “there was a consensus among economists and polititians that we should not be concerned about how bad the deficit gets this next year, or the next one as the financial spending leaps since we must get the economy moving” (paraphrased)...it was alarming, because if we want to get out of debt as citizens, then we don’t go hog wild on spending credit or borrowed money...as one of my friends says “the hotter the war the quicker the peace”....so take the lumps and then get on with it. To get things under control spend less, and expect more cash when bills are paid. Isn’t that the way it is supposed to work? I believe the banks are lending again, and that things are starting to level out, so why borrow more money?
I remember when Jackson spoke out against Clinton’s pardon of the PR terrorists. But then I have a very bad memory.
