addendum

Section 3 of Article II further directs the President to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” To implement or execute the laws of the land, Presidents give direction and guidance to Executive Branch agencies and departments, often in the form of Executive Orders.”

But today’s executive orders go far beyond those rules with an arrogance and disdain for the law personified in both the Clinton and Obama administrations.

“Stroke of the pen. Law of the Land. Kinda cool.”
Paul Begala, former Clinton advisor, The New York Times, July 5, 1998

“We’ve switched the rules of the game. We’re not trying to do anything legislatively.”
Former Clinton Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt, The Washington Times, June 14, 1999
