Some Perspective

In his eight years in office President Obama was repeatedly accused of abuse of the power of the presidency, especially in his use of executive orders. According to my count, he issued 275 official executive orders.

Interestingly, his predecessor, George W. Bush, issued 290 executive orders.

Hmmm…who was it again who “abused the office” more?

It remains to be seen how many will come from this president’s pen, but it will not surprise me if it exceeds both of his immediate predecessors.
