Appearing on Fox News’ “America Live” on Monday, conservative radio host Mark Levin blasted President Barack Obama’s use of executive orders to further his agenda, saying the president believes he is no longer bound by the Constitution because he won reelection.
“He keeps telling us he won reelection, congratulations,” Levin said. “But guess what? The Constitution wasn’t up for election…he has to comply with it too.”
Levin went on to say that Obama has been “pushing the edge of the envelope” as far as his executive powers are concerned. He lamented his “unilateral action” on immigration, violation of the appointment clause, “trashing the commerce clause” under Obamacare and now he is threatening executive action over the Second Amendment.
“What the hell is this? He was elected president, congratulations,” Levin added. “This guy makes Richard Nixon look like a man who followed the law all the time. I think we have an imperial president…he’s arrogant as hell and so I’m furious about this.”
The Constitution, Levin explained, was not and is still not “up for grabs.” He also said President George W. Bush doesn’t compare to Obama when talking about expanding the powers of the executive branch.
“You would think that the Constitution is just another statute for these guys to play with,” he added. “This is why I’m furious. Because once we lose the Constitution, and we’re losing it big, what’s left? How do we keep these people in check?”
If Obama really does attempt to take executive action to enact gun control, it will “not be very pretty,” he concluded.
