It's a simple case. The president is the Chief Executive. The limit to the president's authority is the limit of the Executive Branch of government.
The Constitution prohibits the president from issuing edicts to the population.
The only legitimate commands to the population must come in the form of a law enacted in accordance with the Constitution.
According to the Constitution, the executive orders issuing commands to any entity outside the Executive Branch of government isn't worth the paper it's written on.
Should the president use his position to make himself some kind of third world dictator, that constitutes rebellion against the government of the United States.
Anyone who ever read the Constitution knows that, dufus.
Now, what words will Obama repeat...
"... uphold, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution...."
BWAAAAAWWW HAAAAAAAAAWWW HAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWW
It would really help if Obama had ever even read the Constitution at some point in time in his life.
Hey stupid! All of Obama's executive order were directed to departments of the Executive branch so your entire post is nonsense. But for you that's par for the course isn't it?

I'm sure by now Raider you are aware that you are having a conversation with a hollow log. Talking to Galt, Sleasy Eed, Waxman, these idiots are always spitting in the wind, that is whenever they take a couple minutes from whining and crying. They just don't come any dumber and programmed. Like the man said "If the Republican party didn't want you sheared they would not have made them sheep".
At first I thought these guys were, as you say, hollow logs that were being manipulated with bad information, e.g. FOX News. I thought that by pointing out holes in their logic they could be rescued. Then I realized they have one other common thread, they're all easily frightened. Leaders on the right use fear to scare them into frenzies. Its fascinating to see which cliff Limbaugh will ask them to jump off next.

To think Romney could have been so wrong in saying Americans aren't stupid.
Romney's Mormonism helped Obama win. His misconstrued 47% remark sunk the ship.
We'll get it right in 2016. Make no mistake. If we survive four more years.

Wonder who's fault that REALLY is...considering Republicans walk a tightrope - damned if they do, damned if they don't - when it comes to appeasing Senate democrats, a bullying president and the Obama Team Cheerleaders.
Excuses, excuses. Just like when they held all three houses and took us off a surplus and doubled the debt. Always excuses. Ya know what? Excuses don't play well so that's no way for your party to attempt a recovery. Makes them look weak and pathetic.

Think you're confusing us with your side - or at least the side you choose to defend while hovering above the fray.
Aside from the fact that my "side" has never held national office your "side" is the only side in history to have done what they did.

Reminder: takes us off a budget surplus and double the debt within their tenure.

I think you might have something there, Mr. Tenzing. If I had worn shades on that terrible night 15 years ago, I probably wouldn't have been "anesthesized" and gotten probed, and an alien chip placed in my private parts, which was the beginning of me turning neocon, which I don't think was just a coincidence.
So I guess every cloud has a silver lining after all, as I've said many times, especially when it comes to letting this alien president how do you like my segues by the way?) have his way so everybody finally sees what his real agenda is, when everybody will realize I've been right all along.
Them are some excellent segues.

Death we’re on Auto-Pilot no mystery why…The budget passed by large Democratic majorities in the first months of the Obama administration had hugely elevated levels of spending in it. By not passing a new spending plan since, Reid has in effect made those levels the new budgetary baseline. Congress has kept the government going with continuing resolutions based on the last budget signed!! Thank you Democrats!!
Need to check your history, spending dropped a couple of hundred billion with Obama's first budget. Go to the historical tables at omb.gov and have a look for yourself.

Google "authoritarian personality" and it'll shock you how accurately this describes them.

Here's a detailed list of common traits:

Pregnant women in one southwestern Pennsylvania town will soon need to look elsewhere to deliver their babies, after a local hospital announced it will end the practice in March --
blaming ObamaCare in part for the decision.
The Windber Medical Center will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can't afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.
The hospital, about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, is losing two obstetricians and two others are shifting their focus more to gynecology.

Nice try twit but the primary reason for Windber Medical Center closing its obstetrics unit is the fact that two of its obstetricians were leaving and two others are shifting their practices to gynecology . They would have had to make that decision under the circumstances whether or not there was an ACA. In addition they're actually increasing women's healthcare services. Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown is ready and able to pick up the slack.

Our Joey has been sworn in to his second term as VP.

In other news it has been determined that over 200,000 Floridians didn't vote in November due to the long lines. Governor Scott fought extending voting times but is now reconsidering for future elections.

It's my firm belief his intention is to bankrupt this country, what else could explain his trillion dollar deficits?
His trillion dollar deficit? Of course it has nothing to do with the previous administrations unneeded tax cuts and two wars. The deficit also because of the recession. When people are out of work they pay less taxes. When companies cut back production and their revenues fall, they pay less taxes.

But it's great fun to see you leftwingers defending the Electoral College.
What is fun is watching Republicans trying to cheat to win elections. They gerrymandered so bad here in PA their original map was rejected by the courts, they tried the voter photo ID & now they want to assign votes based on Congressional Districts.

I have news for Republicans.

Try learning how top govern and them you won't need to cheat to win.

Inequality Is Holding Back The Recovery

Politicians typically talk about rising inequality and the sluggish recovery as separate phenomena, when they are in fact intertwined. Inequality stifles, restrains and holds back our growth. When even the free-market-oriented magazine The Economist argues — as it did in a special feature in October — that the magnitude and nature of the country’s inequality represent a serious threat to America, we should know that something has gone horribly wrong. And yet, after four decades of widening inequality and the greatest economic downturn since the Depression, we haven’t done anything about it....

Our skyrocketing inequality — so contrary to our meritocratic ideal of America as a place where anyone with hard work and talent can “make it”— means that those who are born to parents of limited means are likely never to live up to their potential. Children in other rich countries like Canada, France, Germany and Sweden have a better chance of doing better than their parents did than American kids have. More than a fifth of our children live in poverty — the second worst of all the advanced economies, putting us behind countries like Bulgaria, Latvia and Greece.
