On the Fact that Teddy Roosevelt Issued More than Six Times as Many Executive Orders as Lincoln, Johnson, Grant , Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Cleveland, Harrison, and McKinley COMBINED (Source - "Executive Orders and National Emergencies" by William Olson and Alan Woll)

Scary, and what's even scarier is the fact that he was proud of it; "I did greatly broaden the use of executive power", the man once boasted (failing at every turn to even consider the costs/dangers of political power).............Of course if it had only ended there....
