President Obama has admitted his failure. He has not brought about the change he promised the American people, even with executive overreach.
Now he is promoting patience.
Obama said, “What I worry about in our politics is people getting impatient with the slowness of democracy, and the less effective Congress works, the more likely people are to start giving up on the core values and basic institutions that have helped us to weather a lot of storms.”
The 44th President threatened many times to take matters quickly into his own hands. Obama repeatedly declared, “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.” But he sure doesn’t want Trump to have these tools. He wants Trump to exercise patience and let Congress take care of matters.
To date, Obama has signed 260 Executive Orders (EO). His most recent EO requires that the President of the United States be a federal taxpayer. He plans to sign another EO requiring any member of the Executive Cabinet to have had prior political experience. Both are to be effective immediately.
It seems like Obama might be more comfortable wielding a spoon than a pen because he enjoys stirring the pot.
