While guest-hosting “The Rush Limbaugh Show” Monday afternoon, commentator Mark Steyn claimed President Barack Obama believes in a “one-man state,” just like North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. (VIDEO: Mia Love: Obama’s Executive Amnesty ‘Looks More Like A Dictatorship’)

STEYN: The president has unilaterally rewritten U.S. immigration law. He doesn’t have the power to do that. But that rule doesn’t matter… he did it, he did it. This is why, by the way, why things trend Democrat. Because Democrats just do what they want, they don’t worry about the rules.

The president’s idea of law is what you can get away with. And so he figures he can get away with this immigration amnesty, and that what he can get away with trumps the U.S. Constitution. And he’s right about that, because when [Texas Senator] Ted Cruz had his vote, he lost 74-22.

It’s not just a policy difference. It is about whether the president has the right to do it. Whether he’s acting beyond the law like some Latin-American caudillo, or Kim Jong-Un when he has one of his uncles executed over in Pyongyang, or some of these other one-man states. The president thinks it’s a one-man state and what he does trumps what the legislature does. And 74 of the 100 United States Senators agree with that.
