Rush Limbaugh Had More Than a Few Words to Say About Obama's 'Absurd' Executive Order Threat

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday reacted to President Barack Obama’s threat to use more executive orders to “move the ball forward.”

“This is just absurd,” Limbaugh said after playing audio of Obama’s comments. “He’s basically bragging about the fact that he can do executive orders to make things ‘fair.’”

Limbaugh mocked the president, saying that his “entire economic policy has undermined the old saw about work hard and you can make it.”

“Because not only can you not work hard, you can’t work. We’re up to 92 million Americans not in the labor force,” he added. “But this is classic Limbaugh Theorem stuff. This is Obama as an outsider saying he’s looking at Washington and the country, and he sees all of this inequality and all of this unfairness, and he’s just at his wits’ end now.”

However, Limbaugh argued that though Obama has a “pen” and a “phone,” he doesn’t have the “constitutional power to run this country like a dictator.”

“Yet that’s exactly what it sounds like,” he concluded.

Also,  MARK LEVIN: We are witnessing a gradual, quiet COUP!  (Audio)

Mark Levin opened his show today livid over Obama’s announcement that he will ignore the legislature and use his pen to write executive orders. He says the separation of powers are the key to our Republic and yet today Obama just announced that he would assume lawmaking powers via executive orders.

Mark Levin says what’s going on here is that we are witnessing a gradual, quiet coup:

He’s just announced that he is going to assume lawmaking powers. He does not recognize the majority in the House of Representatives. I don’t know how much more clearly he can say it. You know what this is folks? This is a gradual, quiet coup. That’s what is taking place. It’s gradual. It’s quiet, in the sense that it’s non-violent. But it’s a coup!




Update:  TED CRUZ: “If we have a system where the president can pick and choose which laws to follow, at utter whim and discretion, then the whole rest of our constitutional structure becomes superfluous”. More at The Washington Examiner.
