Rush Limbaugh is no stranger to controversy, but his Monday statements have sent Media Matters readers into a predictable fit.
“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,” Limbaugh began.

Soon after, he said the phrase that really freaked out the leftist bloggers: “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!”
“If he’s such a dictator, why is he letting a d*ck like you stay on the radio, Rush?” one Media Matters commenter asked. 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…” while someone who likely did not listen to Limbaugh’s explanation commented: “So, the Constitution of the United States is a ‘dictator’s wet dream’?”
Watch Limbaugh’s explanation, below:
Limbaugh clarified that he doesn’t say this “jocularly,” before asking what prevents Obama from deciding that the 22nd amendment (which limits presidents to only two terms) is no longer relevant?
“Well?” he asked. “I think it’s worth throwing out,” before launching into presumed counter-arguments: “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 they wouldn’t.”
He continued: “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.
