Is Obama’s threat to issue executive orders if the GOP blocks his plans in Congress unconstitutional?

Isn’t the use of this power by the president an effort of Obama "legislative" from the Executive Office. Isn’t Congress supposed to be the ones making the laws and Obama the one carrying them out?

Legislation ALWAYS overrides EO.

I here by proclaim under executive order, that I am President for life….

    there are certain things that he can make executive orders for…

    but that’s up to the supreme court to decide if they are unConstitutional or not

    I know I know – when Bush did it, it was fine. When Obama does it, it is unconstitutional.

    Yes his executive orders a worthless, the law must first be pasted by congress. As much as Obama would like to consider himself a monarch he is just a president

    The Supreme court will reject it anyway. Just like they will reject Obama bs Executive order to take out the Abortion clause in Obamacare. because it was made a Law and Obama can’t change that law alone

    Presidents can issue whatever executive orders they want. It’s that way no matter who’s in office. If he wants to issue an order saying that all people must wear chicken suits on the third Tuesday of every other month, he can. Cluck cluck.

    Presidents have been putting more and more signing statements into law. There is authority to do so, unfortunately.

    I don’t think it really matters because he doesn’t care anyway! He’s going to do what HE wants to do because HE’S the president….he’s above all the rest of us. Besides, all he needs to do is bribe people in congress and he’ll get what he wants.
