We all now Rush Limbaugh is no stranger to controversy, but his statements on Monday statements have sent Media Matters readers into a crazed feeding frenzy and inspired all manner of truly enlightened commentary from the liberal media.
Rush commentated on Obama‘s bypassing Congress by “Imperial Fiat” to stop young illegal immigrants from being deported by saying, “So once again we see which side Obama comes down on, in the question of whether [we are] a country with the rule of law, or the rule of man. With Obama, it’s not the rule of law. He is implementing law that the Congress defeated, as in the legalization of the amnesty for 800,000 young illegals– Congress defeated that, the Dream Act.”
And, truthfully, that is exactly what Obama did. Do you remember American Government or Social Studies in elementary school? The Legislature (Congress) passes the laws and the Executive (the President) enforces the laws. I guess they do not teach that anymore! Well … at least not in Obama’s world; nor does his government follow that Constitutional principle. Now … if the Legislature doesn’t pass a law Obama like … he creates it by “Imperial Fiat;” and if the Legislature passes a law he doesn’t like …. he simply decrees it will not be enforced! So much for co-equal branches of government, checks and balances, and democracy! Say hello to dictatorship! Until this point, Rush was simply stating facts ….
But … then Rush uttered the phrase that really drove the Obama lap-dog media into a lather! Rush said, “It‘s a dictator’s wet dream to do what Obama is doing. If he doesn’t agree with the law, voila, it’s no longer enforced. It may as well not even exist. That’s who he is, folks!”
Now, when you compare this phrase to some of Bill Maher’s liberal hate speech utterances about Sarah Palin and her family,
Or those of MSNBC‘s Lawrence O’Donnell (Did anyone tell O’Donnell that his buddy, Harry Reid, is a Mormon):
“Mormonism was created by a guy in upstate New York in 1830 when he got caught having sex with the maid and explained to his wife that God told him to do it. Forty-eight wives later, Joseph Smith’s lifestyle was completely sanctified in the religion he invented to go with it. Which Mitt Romney says he believes.”
Or Al Sharpton’s comments:
“White folks was [sic] in caves while we was building empires…. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it,”
Jesse Jackson’s comments on “Hymie Town” or that “conservatives are apartheid nazis,”
Keith Oberman vicious comments about Crystal Palin, Britt Hume, Michelle Malkin,
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews fantasizing about killing Rush Limbaugh (while Obama sends a chill up his leg),
Sandra Bernhard imagining her friends gang raping Sarah Palin and calling Crystal Palin a hooker on the Joy Behar Show,
Joy Behar saying “This B*tch, Sharron Angle, Is Going to Hell,”
and MSNBC’s Ed Shultz wanting to “rip out Cheney’s heart and lick it around;”
Rush’s comment seems to be pretty mild …. in comparison! But, hey, liberals never let the facts interfere with a good story!
And, of course, the immediate response from the liberal left was perfect … and so very typical. No facts, counter-points, or legitimate argument contrary to the point Rush was making (because there really aren’t any … Rush is Right); just typical liberal personal attacks and name calling. It is sad to think the future of America is in the hands of people who thing these are opposing points in an argument:
- One Media Matters commentator asked, “If he’s such a dictator, why is he letting a d*ck like you stay on the radio, Rush?”
- Another wrote: “See, here’s a subject Fats is an expert on. He often has wet dreams about being a dictator. A dictator on an island filled with nothing but teenaged Dominican boys…”
- And, yet another, who likely did not listen to Limbaugh’s explanation commented, nor has ever read the Constitution of the United States quipped, “So, the Constitution of the United States is a ‘dictator’s wet dream’?”
Limbaugh clarified that he didn’t say this in a jocular manner. That fact is that, if Obama can simply decide which laws he will enforce or obey and which he won’t; what does prevent Obama from deciding, for example, that he doesn’t like the 22nd amendment (which limits presidents to only two terms) and simply decides it will no longer be enforced?
Liberals will snort and and gaze down at you over their up-turned noses and say:
Come on Rush, there’s no way Obama would ever dispense with elections…
There’s no way Obama would ever not enforce immigration law…
No way Obama would ignore the Constitution and just write a health care law that basically pees all over it…
Of course He wouldn’t!
Rush then asked, “What if we started obeying laws on that [basis]? If the president of the United States can choose to enforce or not enforce law because he likes them or doesn’t like them, what about us? What if we disagree with the speeding law?…What if we don’t like paying income tax, because frankly, I hate it. What if I just decide, screw it!”
“But of course, we don’t have that ability,” Limbaugh concluded.
I would say we do! That was the whole idea behind the American Revolution!!
