As I’m sure many others have, I’ve wondered on a number of occasions how Obama’s executive orders differ from his predecessors’. I was happy to see that a writer on the website of one of our friends decided to research the matter. He put together an excellent post, which we’re reposting below. One very interesting thing he found out was that Obama has issued fewer executive orders per year than: George W. Bush, Bill ClintonGeorge BushRonald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald R. Ford, Richard Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson, John F. Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Harry S. Truman, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Herbert Hoover (see the list at the bottom). In fact, the average number of executive orders per president (610) is about 4 times greater than Obama’s record to date (143). Not exactly the communist, Big Government crazy that some people make him out to be.

Anyway, for much more detail on Obama’s green executive orders, and how his executive orders compare to other presidents’, check out the post below.

    Have to agree with Otis11 on this one. It is the CONTENT and not the VOLUME that has raised the concern of many people. I will leave it at that for now, LOL.

    So I’m not extremely familiar with EOs nor what this president has used them for, but to my knowledge the main complaint wasn’t the sheer number of EOs he’s used, but rather what he has used them on. If he uses thousands of EOs on things under his direct jurisdiction, few would care – but I believe the complaints are stemming from his use of EOs on areas that are only questionably under his jurisdiction…

    “One very interesting think” => “One very interesting thing”
