I had some issues with David Brooks's column today. But rather than write a long response, I thought it would be more interesting to ask Brooks about the column directly. Happily, he agreed.
The moderate Republicans endorsing Romney have been clinging to the same premise. "Let's assume we have a Democratic Senate," they begin.
It's a story of Democrats doing everything they can to address a problem Brooks says is real in the way Brooks says is best, and Republicans doing everything they can to stop them. And it's a story that ends with Democrats and Republicans receiving roughly equal blame from Brooks.
