It's amazing how wrong pundits can be, and in such a short time!
Before the election, conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks argued that Gov. Mitt Romney should be elected president because things would get done ("The upside of opportunism," Opinion, Oct. 31).
With a President Romney, Democrats would compromise to pass bills, including deals on the budget and immigration, Brooks reasoned, but Republicans would stonewall and filibuster any proposal from President Barack Obama. "The bottom line is this: If Obama wins, we'll probably get small-bore stasis; if Romney wins, we're more likely to get bipartisan reform."
