Obama Not Waiting For Congress   November 9th, 2008
Like Bush, Obama may be using a lot of executive orders       

 
QUICK OBSERVATIONS

More observations...
 

In a sign of "change," it looks like Obama may be following Bush's lead in implementing policy without Congress.

"I would say that as a candidate, Sen. Obama said that he wanted all the Bush executive orders reviewed and decide which ones should be kept and which ones should be repealed and which ones should be amended, and that process is going on. It's been undertaken," Podesta said Sunday on "Fox News."

Podesta pointed out that there is a lot the president can do without waiting for Congress, and voters can expect to see Obama do so to try and restore "a sense that the country is working on behalf of the common good."


Hey, that's certainly Obama's right as president. Not sure how much "change" that represents from the executive orders and signing statements the Democrats so criticized Bush for, though.
