A Pact with the Devil

What Mr. Brooks refers to as the "Grand" Bargain looks to me more like a Faustian one. If the reports out of Washington are accurate, the President is willing to make a deal that will consign this nation to years of economic stagnation and surrender the heart and soul of what had made his party great. From the perspective of Mr. Brooks this may seem the right way to do business, but from my vantage point, avoiding threatened disaster is not the same as achieving success, and selling your soul to the devil for the illusion of compromise is no way to run a country.
