Radio talk show host Mark Levin said Saturday that conservatives are “sick and tired” of the Republican leadership in Congress “funding the Obama agenda.”
“Don’t tell us we’re not going to shut down the government,” Levin said during an onstage interview with Family Research Council (FRC) president Tony Perkins at the Values Voter Summit in Washington. “You put these bills on [President Obama’s] desk and let him shut down the government.”
“Let the government shut down and let us continue to live as free human beings,” he added.
The president “may have a pen and he may have an Obamaphone, but we have a Constitution. Now use it!” Levin exclaimed.
“If that means the government shuts down for three weeks, then by God, the government is shut down… By the way, the government never shuts down. It just doesn’t stop.”
Levin called Friday “a great day” because House Speaker John Boehner announced he would step down in October.
“But here’s the problem. They’re like zombies…They just replace each other…[House Majority Leader] Kevin McCarthy is Eric Cantor with ten less IQ points,” Levin said.
“To [former Majority Leader] Eric Cantor: We fully understand that when the Democrats have the House and Senate, they somehow get things done,” Levin said. “It’s not like they’re [Republicans] in some foxhole in Afghanistan fighting that enemy,” he continued. “They’re here in Washington.”
“I think we’ve already tipped hard left,” Levin said in response to a question by Perkins. “We’re holding on to our republic, our Constitution by our fingernails….[The left is] using the law against us.”
“Tyranny takes one term and one president,” he added. “Liberty takes generations.”
