There is a split among conservatives between those who think the NSA's collection of data about every phone call in America is an important counterterrorism tool, and those who think President Obama is, as usual, trampling on the constitution and the flag and the Founding Fathers. But Rush Limbaugh takes it one step further. He says Obama is leading a coup d'etat. And this time it's for real.

On Friday, Limbaugh added up the evidence -- the IRS targeting of conservatives, plus Fast and Furious and Obamacare, and now the NSA. "The evidence of the totalitarian nature or the authoritarian nature of this administration is on display undeniably every day," he said. What does it add up to? "Herbert Meyer," -- a blogger at American Thinker -- "asserted that essentially what's taking place in the United States right now is a coup, not a violent coup, and not a [militaristic] coup, but nevertheless a takeover of a government, and it's being done by the Obama administration." Limbaugh emphatically agrees:

"He referred to it as a coup. I don't know if he used the word "peaceful," but clearly there's a coup d'etat going. You know it and I know it. This is what animates us. This is why the Tea Party exists. This country was founded on certain concepts, principles, beliefs -- and they're under assault. Chief among them under assault is the right to privacy, and that's what all this is about. So in the midst of this coup d'etat... I happen to like that formulation."

These political types do like their hyperbole, don't they?

You do realize that Article 2 of Nixon's impeachment indictment directly applies here, and Article 1 to the AP / Fox and other buggings, right?

I'm sure this is somehow relevant, but I'm not sure what it is. Could somebody enlighten me?

The NSA spying and "Fast and Furious" was started under Bush, but obviously the real insidious program here is healthcare.

Agreed on Obamacare, but Project Gunrunner (the actual program name) was shut down during Bush and returned in 2009 with stimulus funded "enhancements" under Obama.

During Bush the gunwalking arms had trackers and eere seized before crossing the border, but in the Obama incarnation the vast majority had no trackers and were allowed to cross the border. Big difference.

You can't "lead" a coup d'etat if you're already the leader, a coup d'etat by it's very definition is a scheme to usurp a leader. Republicans are completely useless idiots.

I think most Americans would agree with that. So what is Congress going to do about it? It should have been done yesterday.

As for Obama, as inept as he is I doubt he can even do a decent coup d'etat.
