Karl Rove: Rap Parody Promoting Obamacare 'Crosses The Line'

Someone, quick, call the Waaahmbulance...

Karl Rove is having a sad over a new rap parody of Snoop Dogg’s “Drop It like It’s Hot” that promotes Obamacare, saying it “crosses the line.”

The video directs viewers to Covered California-led efforts TellAFriendGetCovered.com and promotes #GetCovered, Alphacat is featured impersonating President Barack Obama rapping about the healthcare law.

“So don’t stand and diddle, my health care’s the shizzle. It’s chock full of top notch health care provizzles,” according to the lyrics.

“I worry about something that seems aim to glorification of the commander-in-chief, the president of the United States as opposed to simply advocating young people go out and sign up for this entitlement program,” Rove said Thursday on Fox News’s On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.

“This disturbingly gets too close to the line. I think it, in fact, crosses it,” continued Rove.

“Could you imagine if such a thing had been run by George Bush or Bill Clinton or Bush 41 or Reagan?” Rove asked. “‘I have two terms, I’m really cool, I’m really hip" How much public outcry there could have been?”
