As painful as it may be to the chronically misinformed, but President Barack Hussein Obama II has not only not overused his executive orders, but he has through his second term used it less than any president from Dwight Eisenhower on.

Two exceptions, those who have used them slightly less, are former Presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush, and that is only because they were one-term presidents. In fact, Eisenhower, whom I voted for, exercised it 484 times.

Facts can be such a nuisance.

But who needs fabricated facts when you can use obfuscating opinions. Points in fact, the detractors: “Obama is a bully/Obama is a coward, Obama is a thug/Obama is wimp; Obama is a dictator/Obama is a weakling.”

To paraphrase a quaint derogatory quip, these despicable, desperate, delusional people are so frustrated that they “don’t know whether to sit or go blind.”

Alex from Whitestone says:
Obama had not overused his executive authority, that's just Republican blabber talk. They have to attack him from all sides, but once you see the facts, their attack becomes moot. Most people only see the headline of the attack, and go away believing it. They never see the retort or the facts. That's what the Republicans do. They put a lot of baloney out there for the headline readers. And they don't care whether it is factual or not. Politics to them is just smearing the other guy...no matter what.
