Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh took issue with President Obama’s recent policy announcements on immigration and same sex marriage, saying that if the president has decided that he’s no longer going to abide by the law of the land, perhaps citizens should no longer follow federal laws.
The Obama administration has decided that the Defense of Marriage Act signed into law by President Bill Clinton—stating that a marriage can only be between a man and a woman—is probably unconstitutional and the administration won’t defend it in court, which is a serious problem for the radio host.
“It’s the law of the land,” Limbaugh said. “The regime announced within the past year that they were no longer going to enforce it. 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.”
Likewise, Limbaugh also is upset that the president is signing an executive order stating that the federal government will no longer deport certain young people who are here illegally.
“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?” Limbaugh said. “What if we disagree with the speeding law? What if we disagree with the driving while drinking law? What if we disagree with the drug laws?
Limbaugh said regular citizens can’t make that choice “without consequence” but Obama can.
“The only consequence for him is at the ballot box,” Limbaugh said. “It’s the only consequence he faces. And that’s once every four years.”
