Gee, Quin, why don’t you tell us how you really feel? In defense of the unnamed Hill source, the prescription drug bill was a White House initiative that Rove defended:

Medicare was modernized with a prescription-drug benefit, now used by 39 million seniors. Giving seniors the drugs they need helped them avoid expensive operations and long hospital stays. The result is better health care for seniors at a lower cost to them and at a lower cost than expected to taxpayers.

Republicans in Congress are culpable for many bad things, but one could argue that the Bush White House — where Rove was the chief political strategist — acted the part of an enabler. A big part of the GOP’s problem during their 12-year congressional majority is that their Senate majority was never large enough to stop a filibuster. Beginning with the budget showdown of 1995-96, Senate Republicans were an obtacle to the reforms that their House counterparts favored.
