Appearing now on CNN, you know, that network the right has you believe is some ultra-liberal news organization:
Obama uses executive orders as a political tool
President Barack Obama is crafting his own laws of political physics these days, insisting that inaction by a divided Congress requires White House action in order to get something done.
A campaign labeled "We Can't Wait" pushes unilateral directives and programs from the White House as the only way to push ahead on the president's agenda when a do-nothing Congress fails to act.
"There is inaction. There is a lack of action," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney explained to reporters this week when asked about a series of executive orders and actions the president has taken or is planning. "So there is a need to move, because we can move."
Funny, but I can’t seem to find any similar headlines when Bush decided to use executive orders to limit abortion funding. I guess to CNN that was Bush just being “presidential”, yet let Obama use executive orders and he’s turning them into a “political tool”.
