Obama right to take fast action.
WASHINGTON -- President-elect Barack Obama plans to use his power to issue executive orders in early 2009 to reverse Bush mistakes on global warming pollution, stem cell research, reproductive rights, reckless oil and gas drilling and other areas.
I applaud Obama's wise consideration of moving swiftly to remove some of the worst Bush-Cheney errors against the public interest. Clearly, this is justified and within his authority.
To prevent the outgoing administration from doing further damage with last minute attacks, congress should move soon to freeze publication of proposed or new rules in the federal register, until after January 20.
