The other day in a casual conversation about our new President, I heard a blanket statement to the tune of “Obama issued the most executive orders by any President, ever.” I didn’t know if this was right or wrong; so I set to find out for myself and decided to issue a challenge to the world. Try your luck at this Presidential Tableau trivia game!
As it turns out, Obama did not issue the most executive orders of any President; not by a long shot. So who did?
Using data provided by The American Presidency Project, I’ve created a game to test your knowledge of executive order execution. I want this game to be an eye opener and hope it shows that we shouldn’t trust everything we hear or see on the internet. Use the parameters below to fill in the bar chart rows… see how many you can guess correctly… and gain some new perspective.
