Rush Limbaugh today compared President Obama’s DREAM immigration policy to disgraced former president Richard Nixon’s actions during Watergate, possibly the most-damaging actions ever made by a sitting U.S. President.
Asking, “What’s more imperial than President Kardashian declaring an untold number of illegals, legal?,” Limbaugh stated:
40 years ago Richard Nixon was hounded out of office supposedly for his illegal actions and I’m telling you what ever Nixon did pales in comparison to just this move today. Obama declaring amnesty for 800,000 illegals based on their youth status. Just with the stroke of his pen. It’s not constitutional.
Coincidentally, Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward one week ago wrote an extensive article for the Washington Post in which they detailed Richard Nixon’s “5 wars.” Perhaps Mr. Limbaugh would like to read it to refresh his drug-addled memory? “Woodward and Bernstein: 40 years after Watergate, Nixon was far worse than we thought.”
Well, at least Limbaugh didn’t call anyone a slut.
