President Obama has some advice for his successor don't strike out on your own.
Obama turned to executive actions and regulations on a number of big issues like labor, climate and immigration where Congress had blocked his agenda. It's something Republicans have decried. Some call the president "lawless" for going around the legislative branch.
In an interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep airing on Morning Edition, Obama made it clear it's not the approach he preferred. "My suggestion to the president-elect is, you know, going through the legislative process is always better, in part because it's harder to undo," Obama said.

I didn't read the link but if true I find it incredible. Obama's use of the EO combined with my perception that the Sotomayor / Kagan-led SC liberal majority wouldn't curtail it was one of the (if not the) critical reason I supported Trump. I hope Trump curtails it dramatically. Note: for you Obamabots, it's not the numbers of EO's signed it's the unconstitutional scope of EO's that bothers us.

Typical Republicans .... they'll easily forget that President Obama had no choice but use the only choice he had, concidering their ONLY Goal was to make him a one term President and not Govern

Donald Trump has both chambers :wink:

No choice? No choice? Violate the constitution was his only choice? Nuclear option was the D's only choice? what a bunch of BS. He had plenty of choices. He could've offered reasonable compromise rather than 'I won, get over it' my-way-or-the-highway. The problem with his tactics is that you folks thought you'd be in power forever. Funny how elections have consequences, huh?

I didn't vote for Trump, but I agree on the substance of your comment.

When I quote someone that's the person I am talking to.
See how that works?

As an aside, when I AM linking all Lefty's together it's always clear ;)
I might say things like: "The search for leftwing intelligent life goes on" , or something of that nature.
I hope that helps.

:rollseyes: What a bunch of BSRight, he had no choice. After all, attempting to exercise a little leadership and use his powers of persuasion was out of the question. Of course he doesn't have those abilities, but that's a different topic.
