In response to President Obama’s warning that he would use more executive orders in the coming months to achieve his policy agenda, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh scoffed, “This is just absurd,” Breitbart reported.

Mr. Obama’s actual terminology on Tuesday was that he would rely on the executive power to “move the ball forward” in order to sidestep a stalled Congress.

To Mr. Limbaugh, that’s the move of a dictator.

“He’s basically bragging about the fact that he can do executive orders to make things ‘fair,’” Mr. Limbaugh said. “[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 [under this president] — you can’t work.”

Mr. Limbaugh continued, Breitbart reported: “We’re up to 92 million Americans not in the labor force. … 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.”

But just because Mr. Obama has a “pen” and a “phone,” doesn’t mean he has the “constitutional power to run this country like a dictator,” Mr. Limbaugh said. “Yet that’s exactly what it sounds like.”
