President Obama's Executive Orders

President Obama has signed 231 Executive Orders to date during his Administration. The 1461 has included a Free Download of the Official Executive Orders as they become available in the Federal Registry.

This list is complete and current to April 1st 2016. The list was originally started here on the 1461 on January 25 2009.

I get emails from time to time asking why other blogs and websites list President Obama's Executive Orders in the many hundreds even thousands and I show only the true count of the current number of Executive Orders.

The answer is simple - We don't need to lie or attempt to embellish the total number of Executive Orders to build traffic, sell advertising spaces or raise our ratings -  the Truth will Set you Free.  Facts - Not Fear

Read my open response to the emails questioning the Executive Order count here.
