Is Obama Really Abusing His Executive Powers?

Washington Post: “President Obama’s opponents are having fun by constantly reinforcing the notion that he’s out of control – and obviously, needs to be sued/impeached. But … the number of executive orders signed by Obama isn’t huge. In fact out of the last 10 presidents, he’s signed the least amount of executive orders on average per year:”
