A group of state Attorneys General have signed a letter warning President Biden away from being a dictator due to the dozens of executive orders he has signed since becoming president.
One wonders why Biden is so afraid that he won’t be able to get his agenda into action and what his hurry is? After all, his party controls the House and the Senate and most of the judges in the nation. Why does the Commander in Cheat think he has to push through more executive orders than every president combined in history during his first two weeks in office?
Biden has signed more than 40 EO’s in his first two weeks which is more than double the amount every other president combined has signed in that same period of time.
But now the attorneys general of Texas, Mississippi, West Virginia, Arkansas, Montana and Indiana, have signed a letter to illegitimate Joe reminding him that a US president has “limited power” for a reason.

In their letter, they officials said, “State Attorneys General in particular serve as an important check and balance as the President carries out his constitutional charges.”
“Under the Constitution, the principal political control of our government is entrusted not to the President, but to the carefully constructed Congress which serves as both sail and anchor of the federal ship of state,” they added. “Congress writes the laws and the President and his officers are limited under the Constitution to the role of faithfully carrying them out.”
“But a president is not a Prime Minister or a King and must respect that his constitutional office is a limited Chief Executive, not the supreme authority of the state,” the letter says, adding “overreaching and defying Congress will not be rewarded or succeed.”
“The President is obliged by oath to obey the laws enacted by Congress. Statutory roadblocks and constraints are not mere opportunities for creative lawyering or administrative gamesmanship,” they wrote.
