    WASHINGTON — President Obama has issued a form of executive action known as the presidential memorandum more often than any other president in history — using it to take unilateral action even as he has signed fewer executive orders.

    A rose by another name.........executive action and presidential memorandums are the same. Just one is more transparent than the other and by law must be listed on the federal registry. Can you guess which one? ;)
