...Well... I'll admit I don't know a lot about it... but I seriously doubt Obama's actually mulling an executive order. If he does that, he'll lose the election. There's not even a question about that. All his oposition has to do is say that they'll try to return things back to normal, and pretty much everybody would vote for him.
Honestly, I doubt, even if he wanted to after the election was over with, he would even hint that he wanted it to pass. It would be seriously damaging to his polotical image.
