Legitimate plan to thwart quasi-monopolies? Or perhaps a backdoor into more government control of businesses?

I'm not sure how effective they will be at increasing competition, but the example given was spot on (cable providers). However, stifling of quasi-monopolies thus far has been pretty inadequate (Airline Industry comes to mind). I will hope for the best.

We will see what comes of this. Any thoughts?

You do know he is not even in the top ten of total EO by presidents. He will not beat Bush before leaving, and come NO WHERE near Reagan.

How is this relevant? I was talking about a specific EO not his number of EOs

That was truly a spastic response to the OP, even for TBR.
The extinction of the species is worse than the extinction of the nation, which is worse than the extinction of the tribe, which is worse than the extinction of the family, which is worse than the extinction of the individual. The second he reverses that list of priorities, he becomes a coward, and would be summarily disposed of by any civilized society that values its own survival.

I think the title of the thread itself may have been a little misleading to TBR about the actual conversation that was intended. "Increase Competition Executive Order" could easily be misconstrued to insinuate that Obama is making many executive orders to the point that he is now competing with other past presidents regarding how many times he makes executive orders, or in other words, how much he has increased competition.

That's the great thing about the body of a post you can get further insight beyond the title. I realize if you suggest a person only reads the title and then posts that would be very telling.

No one has any opinions on this EO though? Positive or negative?

I think it's amazing how well Obama can tiptoe around the concept of deregulation, without actually saying that particular trigger word.

He truly knows how to moderate his speech.
