The "Obama is a tyrant for using executive orders" thing is just yet another example of the right freaking out about something that Obama does that his predecessors routinely did. I've noted the phenomenon a few times before. This is just like the President using a teleprompter, appointing "czars," not issuing an Easter proclamation, or shaking hands with evildoers. It is all the same thing.

You can disagree with the substance of his executive orders if you want, but to pretend that this is some kind of unprecedented power grab just makes the conservative movement look like a bunch of ignorant fools.
