Since coming to office in 2009, Obama’s government has deported more than 2.5 million people—up 23% from the George W. Bush years. More shockingly, Obama is now on pace to deport more people than the sum of all 19 presidents who governed the United States from 1892-2000, according to government data.

And he also has less executive orders than any president going back to the 1800s!

The low number of executive orders is clouded significantly by his frequent use of executive memoranda—which are very similar.

OH he should call his drone strike program, "spreading freedom" that way he can claim to have dropped less bombs then Bush and spread more freedom.

less executive orders is true, but when you add his presidential memorandum things get a little hinky.



Right now some nutters in RSP are asking "what the hell are you talking about Cobert's, you are like so stooooopid. A memoranda is not the same thing !!!!".

Quote:
Obama has issued executive orders to give federal employees the day off after Christmas, to impose economic sanctions and to determine how national secrets are classified.

He’s used presidential memoranda to make policy on gun control, immigration and labor regulations. Tuesday of this week, he used a memorandum to declare Bristol Bay, Alaska, off-limits to oil and gas exploration.
