Rove & Groucho: No, no no

AS WE NOW await the decision on Obamacare by the right-wing Supreme Court - another leftover from the Bush Administration - my political diary turned up this quote from Karl Rove from August, 2009. Referring to the GOP's role in challenging President Obama, Rove asserted:

"This is going to be defined by Republican conservatives by what we oppose."

Unfortunately, with that game plan, Rove, also known as "Bush's brain," nailed it.

And so we've had a rebirth of Groucho Marx's unyielding position that "Whatever it is, I'm against it."

An awful way to run a country.

With the upcoming Supreme Court decision, health care won't be touched again for another decade.

The comparison is an insult to Groucho.
