Schwarzenegger as Bartleby?

On the recent Californian Supreme Court ruling that overturned same-sex marriage ban. (I can't find a link to the quote, but it was on the evening news):

Governor Schwarzenegger:"I have no problem with it, but I'm against it."

Ah, ambiguities of the indeterminate pronoun! This is increasingly the rhetorical form of all American politics within the two parties.
