q1w2e3 saidAs for Obama being the most divisive president, you might credit the most divided Congress ever.
And it's mostly the Republicans' fault, starting around 1980:
First I have no idea what that graph is showing. Polarized base on what frame of reference? The washington post? Even if i stipulate the congress is the most polarized ever, some guys blog post on the Washington post is not unbiased research. Good try though.
The Exec orders are not that spectacular or controversial. But it was the manner in which it was undertaken.
Obama chooses instead of negotiating with Congress, he gives a lecture via a press conference then asks the voters to call there Congressman and lobby for him. Every American should be upset with this strategy. He should sit down like every other President before him and negotiate.
Because its very likely there will BE NO GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION.
He worsened Senate Democrats position by inflaming paranoia of those who see the second amendment as a check against tyranny. Throw some executive orders out there before Congress has a chance to adopt them. What will likely happen is that almost every single order will be nullified by Congress.
Yes they can easily nullify a executive order.
Even if we have 50 decades of democratic presidents give me a Bill Clinton any day. At least he had a track record of getting something done.
