Rush Limbaugh weighed in on NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden today on his radio show.
Rush believes Snowden is not the real threat to America… Obama is.
Transcript from the Rush Limbaugh website:
The question is will America, will America make it through Obama’s second term and be America as founded at the end of it. That’s the question. Because Obama’s not going anywhere. I don’t mean to depress anybody. If you’ve got your hopes up for that, I just don’t see it. No way. Already happened. This stuff has been unacceptable for three years.

The real question is, we’re in the middle of a coup. Are we gonna survive it? We’re in the middle of a peaceful coup d’etat. There is no Idi Amin Dada running around here. It’s just a peaceful coup d’etat. This country is undergoing a transformation. This country is being run by people who do not appreciate the way it was founded. They do not appreciate the Constitution as written, and they are in the process of implementing and behaving as they wish the Constitution existed. They wish a Constitution existed which invests in government all power. They want all power. And they’re in the process of behaving as though they have it.
Nobody’s really pushing back to stop it. And that’s what all of these data mining scandals really focus on. We’re looking now at this Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old young man who has gone public with the PRISM program. And the real danger here — and look, John Bolton is out. Snerdley’s livid at this guy. A lot of people are. John Bolton is out saying, “This guy is a traitor and he needs to be charged and tried as a traitor.” And there are some people that think that if we’d have dealt with Bradley Manning when he gave up all those documents to Julian Assange, that this wouldn’t have happened.
Other people are sympathetic because this guy admitted he had all kinds of high hopes for Obama to stop this stuff, and Obama’s only exacerbated it and made it worse, which is one of the reasons he’s stated that he’s come forward. The real danger to me, though, is not one or two rogue employees at the IRS or the NSA or the CIA. The real danger is having a rogue administration. And we do, I think. This is the primary challenge that we face.
