Obama on CO and WA legalizing

Obama on CO and WA legalizing marijuana: "…this is a tough problem because Congress has not yet changed the law. I head up the executive branch; we’re supposed to be carrying out laws."

That's interesting Mr. Obama... but given your stance on the use of executive orders, it seems a bit hypocritical to try to create law via executive order, especially since you said it was your job to carry out laws, and Congress' job to create and change laws.
