imagesPolitical consultant Karl Rove took to the pages of The Wall Street Journal to demand Republicans find a government program to replace Obamacare subsidies should the Supreme Court rule them unconstitutional.

“President Barack Obama will accuse conservative justices of overreaching and demand that the GOP Congress immediately extend subsidies to every state,” wailed Rove, who insists Republicans must agree to extend Obamacare subsidies.

“The proposals that have been floated so far fall under two general approaches. The first emphasizes providing transitional coverage for those affected by the loss of subsidies, while replacing selected elements of Obamacare,” writes Rove.

“The second also includes transitional coverage but puts more emphasis on replacing and reforming Obamacare. Both approaches are predicated on the belief that wholesale repeal and replacement of the law is impossible until a Republican is president,” explained Rove.

That approach would cement Obamacare as a “Roveamacare” Republican program and make even more Americans dependent on it, which would make a repeal impossible.

This is the same Rove who masterminded the expansion of the Medicare Part B program, the largest expansion of a welfare program in American history.

Rove is best known as the Bush White House political operative whose advice turned Republican majorities of 55 seats in the Senate and 232 seats in the House into 41-seat and 178-seat minorities.

Under his guidance, George W. Bush blew a four-point lead with just days to go in the 2000 presidential election. Bush ended up losing the popular vote, but was rescued from losing the Electoral College vote after 1,000 Democrats in Palm Beach County, Florida couldn’t figure out how to read their ballots, flipping the state from Gore to Bush.

Rove again tried to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in 2004, as the incumbent president enjoying a healthy economy, nearly lost to human sedative John Kerry.

Once again enjoying a four point lead with just days to go, Bush escaped by around a two point percent margin. Had just two percent of voters in Ohio switched votes, Rove would have blown the presidential election.

Undeterred by common sense, reality or current events, Rove still insists on advising Republicans how to not be Republican.

“Some Republicans may insist on simply repealing Obamacare. But doing this would chew up valuable time and give the president a veto opportunity he relishes,” writes Rove, who has apparently been in a coma and unaware of election results since 2008.
