Damn it !!! Chris Matthews is still using the phrase ''Obama's Executive Order'' - there is NO EO !



Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion Is Different From Issuing An Executive Order: http://mediamatters.org/research/201206160002


President Obama did NOT issue an Executive Order.

The change in immigration policy was set forth in a memorandum written and signed by Napolitano.

I wish the media would do their homework !!!

1. Though I think you and I disagree about whether it should've been an EO,

 

we definitely agree that it isn't one.

Chris Matthews is an idiot. All you have to do is watch his promos for his show to know that.

"You can't go to China and become Chinese," then he points to the White House like Obama became an American when he wasn't one, and says something like, "American exceptionalism."

Yeah, a complete moron, just seems no one pays enough attention to catch most of his careless mistakes and stupidities.

4. Technically, as explained in the Federal Register,

 

Executive orders are official documents, numbered consecutively, through which the President of the United States manages the operations of the Federal Government.

The text of Executive orders appears in the daily Federal Register as each Executive order is signed by the President and received by the Office of the Federal Register. The text of Executive orders beginning with Executive Order 7316 of March 13, 1936, also appears in the sequential editions of Title 3 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/executive-orders/about.html


The latest executive orders are found here:
http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/executive-orders/2012.html

I'm not aware of any good reason why anyone should rely upon Chris Matthews for anything. Or other TV gas bags of any stripe. They have been wrong about a great many things, including calling certain people in positions of authority "liberals" or "progessives" when they are not. I can't see how it makes any difference as to whether he uses the phrase "executive order" consistent with the Federal Register's explanation or not.

12. I Googled it. Yes, he issued an EO. LAST year was the discretionary policy change.

It wasn't an EO for the whole DREAM Act. It's just so the non-residents brought here at age 15 or younger can apply for two year terms to be allowed to stay, then they can re-apply, and re-apply, etc. As long as certain conditions are met, like no felonies, they will be allowed to stay legally, but not a right to citizenship. So it's different from the DREAM Act, but it's part of it.

Obama didn't use the words Executive Order, but all the reports, confirmed by Napolitano, are that's what it is.

Snopes.com was one source.

11. My advice

Don't watch msnbc. They are establishment teevee, Cenk Uynger confirmed that, look it up. Just think about how they focus on republican noise as news, there's something fishy about that. Also their morning spin machine is a repugnant moron with a loud mouth and he's on for three hours, then you get another scumbag Todd. Don't watch their crap, it's bones being tossed at Dems and anyone with two brain cells can see that.
