Love him or hate him, Rush Limbaugh certainly has a way with words, especially where the ideas of his ideological opponents are concerned.
To that end, he managed to give conservatives everywhere a derisive nickname to use for the President's new "policy change" which effectively treats the DREAM Act (which has yet to pass Congress) as though it were law.
"I have a name for this new Obama immigration policy," Limbaugh sneered over his bumper music. "What this is is 'Catch, Release, Vote.'"
Limbaugh also unofficially christened his usual "Open Line Friday" tradition "Open Borders Friday" just for today as a sarcastic nod to the administration. Mediaite reports on the content of his full takedown as follows:
“The President is in full panic mode,” he continued. “He’s not keeping his powder dry until the fall. He is not — Why? Because people are paying attention. And we don’t like what we’re seeing or what we’re getting from Obama. First the churches, then women, then Bain Capital, then gays and now this. They’re just throwing everything up against the wall.”
To prove he’d seen this coming from afar, Limbaugh then played a clip from July 30th of 2010, in which he denounced the “dictatorial nature of this regime” in reference to the Obama administration, warning listeners that “hey are looking at ways to grant amnesty en masse without legislation.”[...]
That Obama made this policy change, he continued, is not what’s desperate. Rather, it’s the timing of the change that points to panic. “He thinks that his voters, the takers,” Limbaugh explained, “outnumber the Catholics, the people who don’t like the whole notion of same-sex marriage who are opposed to ever-expanding entitlement programs. And now this. He thinks that the black vote and the Hispanic vote and the feminist vote and all these other constituency groups are gonna add up to an electoral coalition over the rest of the country, which I’ll call, for the purposes of this discussion, ‘the producers.’”
