I agree that it was nit picking. I wouldn't have even mentioned it if the rest of the post wasn't so wrong. A list of three wrong things is more impressive than just two.

Agree, although it's more accurate to say they're permanent as long as a successor doesn't change them.

Most executive orders aren't controversial or necessarily even partisan. We just hear about the ones that are. But even with the controversial ones, a lot of them are clearly within the scope of POTUS power and any lawsuit would fizzle long before it got to the SCOTUS.
