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.”
Limbaugh also said 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.
