Executive Orders: Good, bad or depends?

In recent months there have been a lot of discussion about the President and his use of Executive Orders. The question is, are Executive Orders a good thing or bad? If one party within Congress is hindering government so badly, is the President correct to use the Executive Order to go around them?

kendall78...the history of Gitmo is an interesting read and is a heck of a deal for the United States. the prison itself is a recent creation compared to the overall history. shutting down the prison IMO is largely symbolic, as we will still continue to operate off-shore black sites as needed. considering the need to update the way in which we handle "enemies of the state", most americans need to get over the fact that no matter how humanely we treat our adversaries, it is foolish to think they would automatically reciprocate. either way the "enemy combatants" and their supporters will continue to propogandize its existence or demise.

Let's keep in mind that when they say they want to close Gitmo, they mean to shut down the part where we keep ppl without giving them a trial. Most Americans probably don't know the history of Gitmo to begin with.

Is there any credence that can be given to the possibility that Obama's new found affinity for our relationship with Cuba may be based upon his desire to dispose of Guantanamo by giving the property back to Cuba? I understand he freed a few more detainees this past week. Think about how difficult it would be for the US to reestablish such an offshore installation, if we needed one in the future. There's something about Guantanamo that really grinds on Obama's belief system. Maybe he IS a Muslim.

Yep, some are molting. I have a gentle rooster, but he has some age to him. I have a juvenile, that I would like to introduce to the flock, but I don't want it injured.

I should have known that fox deal would not get past you,Stillhere. LOL Now we both have my husband laughing. He doesn't touch computers, but I read him interesting stuff sometimes.

They are the same thing. Another example of obama fooling us citizens. Tricks are eventually exposed, as this one has been revealed to us now.

So now we are finding out how they can brag about the small number of obama's executive orders. We knew there was a fox in the woodpile somehow. Well, guess what. He just calls them memos instead of orders, They have the same exact powers and he has used them in great numbers. Just read the USA Today report, you obama excusers.

Kunectdots, I have read that obama didn't actually sign the "memo". If that is true, could that be a way to avoid being prosecuted?

Money is being spent to implement an imaginary illegal law. Funny.

While Obama doesn't consider his latest usurpation of the powers reserved to the Congress by the US Constitution, calling it a Presidential "Memo", those that understand the basics of even Junior High School Civics, see it as being wrong.
