Limbaugh and the Obama Coup

Email Print

Blowhard Rush Limbaugh’s characterization of the Obama regime as presently engaged in a coup d’état is not far off the mark. It is definitely a seizure and consolidation of power in higher echelons of the executive. James Madison, father of the Constitution, observed in Federalist Paper Number 47: “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” The assassination of JFK, the Watergating of Richard Nixon, and the attempted murder of Ronald Reagan were previously engineered coups. Such actions are not solely confined to Third World “banana republics” but are part and parcel of our historic fabric. No “American exceptionalism” here.
