Obama defenders have been trying to justify his abuses of power by pointing out the number of executive orders previous presidents have issues.

It’s the nature, not the number, of executive orders that matters.

Executive orders can legitimately be used in managing the executive branch when they’re used to create, change or ignore law.

The president has exceeded his constitutional authority.

It’s the rule of law, especially the constitution, rather than the rule of the ruler, that separates us from dictatorship.
