We've got divided government. He can't do it unilaterally. Has to come from Congress and so its a non starter. Calm down.
I always find it funny how people forget about Congress, and think the President is all powerful.

"Oh my gosh, Bush is horrible for making us go to war.!" Bush didn't make us go to war, Congress is the one who voted for us to go to war.
