Obama's executive action rollouts increasing in pace

By: Gregory Korte
April 22, 2015

President Obama never used the words "executive action" until nearly three years into his presidency. Now announcements of executive actions have become a routine, almost daily occurrence.



WASHINGTON As President Obama stood in an Everglades swamp to speak on climate change Wednesday, the White House rolled out a package of eight executive actions, implemented by seven government agencies, to "protect the people and places that climate change puts at risk."

The announcement contained no executive orders, sweeping directives, legislative proposals or bill signings.

Instead, the actions include smaller-bore staples of a "pen-and-phone" strategy that shows no sign of letting up: a report on the value of parks to the environment, a proclamation declaring National Parks Week, and conservation efforts in Florida, Hawaii, Puget Sound and the Great Lakes.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the actions were an effort to deal with the impacts of climate change "even in the face of pretty significant opposition from Republicans in Congress."

Indeed, the actions have a political component, part of a White House strategy to work around Congress and force Republicans to respond to the president's agenda.

"Since the election, the president has had a pretty explicit strategy," said Brian Deese, a senior Obama adviser. "And it has consisted of trying to stay on offense, trying to push where he can to move the agenda through executive action. You're going to keep seeing the president in that posture going forward."

"Executive action" a phrase Obama never uttered publicly in the first two and a half years of his presidency has now become so routine that new announcements come several times a week.

The actions can take many forms, from formal executive orders and presidential memoranda to more routine reports, meetings and internal bureaucratic changes. That makes any definitive count of lower-level executive actions difficult.

But by one measure, such policy rollouts are actually increasing in pace. The White House often announces executive actions with a fact sheet from the press office, and those spiked last year during what Obama called the "Year of Action." The White House issued 228 fact sheets in 2014, more than the first three years of his presidency combined.

This year, the White House has already issued three more fact sheets than last year at the same time.

The Obama strategy on executive actions closely parallels that of the Clinton White House. In Bill Clinton's last two years in office, chief of staff John Podesta launched what would become known as "Project Podesta." In an effort to flex presidential authority, Podesta canvassed executive agencies for actions Clinton could take without going to Congress.

There was a bad smell herein Florida for a while. Glad he is gone. If I were governor, I wouldnt have let his plane land here. Pollution. We dont need the lying SOB here. The weather is warm, we have plenty of rain, and everything grows fast and beautiful.

Of course. It's desperation time. Gotta cement the legacy and the Iran thing isn't panning out. Obamacare is in troubled waters and we seem to be re-fighting the wars he said he ended.

Only in America could Americans be so stupid and vote in and catapult to the top of leadership the most unqualifiedd person to president and commander in chief of our armed forces

if Obama can be president and commander and chief  above  of trained educated military leaders then why not make me the dean of a college ? or president of boeing or gmc yeah you laugh but how is it any different than Obama with no experience at all getting that job?
