All those pesky little facts. Not like Teabaggers or conservatives have ever been concerned with the facts.

"Both President George H.W. Bush (Kuwait) and President Clinton (Bosnia) ordered troops into combat via Executive Order. After the 9/11 attacks, President George W. Bush issued an entire series of Executive Orders, e.g. to call the Ready Reserves to active duty, to block the financing of terrorist organizations, and to create a Department of Homeland Security"

NOT EASY TO BE A DICTATOR IF YOU CAN BE OVERTURNED:
"Congress may attempt to overturn an executive order by passing legislation (a bill) that opposes the order. However, the President can veto that bill, and Congress would then need to override that veto to pass the bill. Also, the Supreme Court can declare an executive order to be unconstitutional.
