    Come on people why is congress sitting on their ass and dong nothing? obama tried to get cap and trade passed in 2009 that was a fail, so he get's his EPA thugs to create rules that will work as good as passing cap and trade.

    Next he by-passes congress and uses the military in Libya with out congressional approval.

    Next last year the dream act was not passed by congress but obama issues a presidential order by-passes congress again and passes the dream act.

    Why is he being allowed to misuse the "presidential order"
    Isn't this how dictators begin?

    I know nothing about it but I assume that, if there is such a thing as a "presidential order" it was created to prevent paralysis at federal level.

    But the executive order should not be used to by-pass the will of the people.

    Wouldn't the President be presumed to represent the ultimate will of the people?
    After all, he was voted into the position by The People.

    When Congress didn't pass it and that is the will of the people.
    obama is using the executive order as a dictator rubber stamp.

    it was the will of the majority of the people that he should be president.. not that he becomes a defacto dictator.

    That is true, but if the presidential powers include executive orders isn't he within his legal power that the people have entrusted him with? And if the people don't want him to have such power shouldn't they take it away instead of blaming him for using legal powers the people gave him in the first place?
