Mark Levin denounces the ‘tyranny’ of Obama’s ‘imperial presidency’
In a lively and spirited back and forth* with Megyn Kelly of Fox “News,” Mark Levin passionately denounced the “imperial presidency” of Barack Obama.
All the talk of executive orders being used to circumvent Congress on gun control, or using the 14th Amendment to do the same regarding the debt ceiling - even though there are no serious plans on either front - is what got The Great One’s blood pressure rising!
Conservative radio host Mark Levin appeared Fox News’ America Live this afternoon to discuss how his ‘fury’ over President Obama’s ‘tyranny’ in his use of executive orders.
‘He keeps telling us he won re-election,’ Levin said of the president. ‘Congratulations! But guess what, the Constitution wasn’t up for election, it wasn’t for a referendum,’ he continued, before rattling off the list of ways he believes the president has expanded his office into an ‘imperial presidency,’ including ‘unilateral action’ on immigration, the tax implications of ObamaCare, ‘attacks on religious liberty,’ and the potential use of executive order on gun control.
‘What the hell is this?’ Levin continued. ‘He was elected president. Congratulations. This guy makes Richard Nixon look like a man who followed the law all the time. I think we have an imperial president. He sounds imperial, he’s arrogant as hell and I’m furious about this.’
Host Megyn Kelly pushed back that many also found Obama’s Republican predecessor George W. Bush to be ‘imperial’ in his presidency, vastly expanding the powers of the executive branch.
*This would be like calling a Harlem Gobetrotters-Washington Generals game an “epic battle.”
