President Barack Obama thinks he's an "emperor" and will prove it Thursday with an expected plan to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation, conservative commentator and radio host Rush Limbaugh says.
The president's declaration in February 2013 that "I'm not . . . the emperor of the United States" and can't stop deportations that would tear immigrant families apart was just "buying time," Limbaugh said on his radio show Wednesday.

"What he didn't say was, 'I don't care about any of that,'" Limbaugh said. "'The only thing stopping me is there's an election coming up, and, when the election's over, that's when I'll do it. But I'm not gonna do it before that because that will hurt my party and maybe me.'
"He should have just told them to be patient and wait until after the election, because he doesn't believe he's not an emperor," Limbaugh charged.

Obama, who is expected to outline a plan Thursday to give temporary legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants, is doing exactly what he said he couldn't, Limbaugh said.
"He lied," Limbaugh charged. "Obama knows everything he's doing. He knows who he lies to, he knows why he lies, and he knows he's going to get away with it. He knows he's not gonna be called on it."
But, Limbaugh said, "the point is much larger than Obama is a hypocrite. He is exactly what he claims that he is not."
"He knows the American people are not ready for a dictator or an authoritarian or a statist," Limbaugh said. "That's why he's gotta lie."

The president, Limbaugh said, "knows he's violating the Constitution — he's happy to do it, by the way."
The president's plan is expected to give relief from deportation to millions of undocumented immigrants who are parents of U.S. citizens or of permanent legal residents.
