OBAMA’S BOY: Holder Says Obama Has Used Restraint In Executive Actions

Apparently Holder doesn’t think that Obama is all that bad with his executive orders, or something like that. Check it out…

Attorney General Eric Holder believes President Barack Obama has shown restraint in his use of executive actions.

In an interview with Time, Holder, who previously could not explain whether the Constitution enabled some of Obama’s bolder executive actions, claimed Obama has “appropriately used executive authority as other presidents have.”

“He’s used executive action around 180 times, something like that. I was looking the other day just at a list of presidents, and Teddy Roosevelt issued about 1,000 executive orders,” he said. “So in terms of magnitude this president has not used this authority nearly as much as his critics would say.”

He said Obama has asked him and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to “look into a wide range of things” before noting that “we are more broadly looking at the whole immigration portfolio.”
