I don't have any statistics available, but I bet most of them are not reversed by the next guy.

3. A small minority of executive orders are challenged all the way to the SCOTUS. A really, really small minority.
Forget I used the word "legislation". Use any word that you would like for a executive order. When you focus on one word, or the definition of a word, your argument is on thin ice.

They are temporary unless the incoming President agrees with the executive order. The Reagan example is a perfect example. You think Clinton didn't know of its existence? By his not canceling the executive order, he approved of the executive order.

There are lawsuits agaisnt everything the government does, I'm skeptical that there are few lawsuits against executive orders.
