Obama Issued Executive Orders Without Notifying Public
Fox News ^ | Wednesday, February 18, 2009 | Politico.com

President Obama issued a slew of executive orders and other official decisions without making any announcements to the press, Politico.com reports.

According to an article published Tuesday night, the president has since taking office issued three executive orders, one memorandum, one presidential notice and a proclamation without any attention from the White House press corps. That's because the White House press office never announced them and never posted any reference to them on its Web site.

Typical of a dictator. The man is a meglomaniac with a chip on his shoulder much like Hitler had for the Jews.

Communist Dictators doe not tell the surfs what they are doing or why. They are above us. Thus, they have all the answers. They KNOW IT ALL. The Bowinkle J. Moose's (Mr. Knowitall) of the planet.

Just as a question of curiosity and compairison, I can’t help but wonder how many Bush did over his 8 years. I have no doubt he did. But how many?

Isn’t that what an executive order is? An order totally at the whim of the president? Elections have consequences. Even though President Bush was too ethical to issue executive orders left and right, I had no doubt Obama would use that option a lot.

The dictator is dictating.

I love how the press is both SHOCKED and crestfallen over this.

But I expect that they will get over it.

President Bush was open with the media to a fault. He could have used the EO a lot but he never did. I think he should have used it more often.

During the co-presidency I used tools like that to keep a daily calendar of the public president’s activities. Typical day-
Wake up around ten, golf at 11, fly on AF1 to a school in Tennesee, give a talk there, give a talk at civic center, go to Dem fundraiser, return to DC.

No wonder Waxman does not like the internets!

BTW the Congressional Record is online too.

IATW, Bush should have overturned some of Clinton’s over-reaching Executive Orders.

I fear that gunowners are going to wake up one morning and find an EO that they have 30 days to turn in all guns and ammo or face ten years in an indoctrination center.

There isn’t anything that would surprise me with the Zer0 behind the wheel. WHEN are the grown-ups going to arrive?

I think so, yes. He should have issued an EO to drill in ANWAR. He should have pardoned the border patrol agents right away using the EO. He could have used it for a lot of good.

I don’t see anyone trying to stop the abuse of the executive order privilege. Why not? What do you think you should do?

Is that like Double-secret probation! (from the movie Animal House)

(Great!(/sar.) We have a president cribbing from a movie and it ain't Patton or Gone With The Wind)
