Ross Douthat:

Because Obama’s message depends so heavily on voters’ unhappy memories of the Bush era, Romney can do himself an enormous amount of good just by exploding the premise that he’ll govern as “Dubya, Part II.”

Serious question: Is there any reason to think that a Romney presidency will be different from George W. Bush’s presidency? If so, why? In what ways?

OK, so those were three questions. But I’m serious about them.
