The President today decided to bypass Congress yet one more time on yet one more issue and signed twenty-three executive “actions” regarding gun control, while nagging Congress to do more.  These orders were quickly criticizedfor not doing anything which would have prevented the Sandy Hook Massacre, which should be the litmus test for any new [...]

Obama’s Impatience with Congress

Bush Push on Oil Drilling

July 14, 2008

President Bush announced today that he is rescinding his father’s Executive Order which banned off-shore oil drilling.  And it’s about time in my opinion!  What’s interesting about this development is that Congress imposed it’s own separate ban, meaning that if off-shore drilling were to take place, both branches would have to agree.  Now, it’s solely in [...]
