    Obama's EO's on the minimum wage for federal contractors and overtime pay calculations could be reversed in three years when a new president takes power. Clearly it was a mistake for Obama to have signed those executive orders. Indeed, since a subsequent President could rescind any executive order Obama makes, Obama should refrain from issuing any executive orders. See, Obama is not like any other President before him. His authority and power is significantly less than any other President in our history and any action he takes must be viewed as inherently invalid. Right? Right?

      I just wouldn't have had the energy to point out how self-evidently faulty this line of argument is.
