Romney winning is pointless at this stage. The Senate is not going to do anything he wants.
If Obama loses the popular vote, then he's going to have a hard time getting anything he wants done, too, obviously, and yes, it would be an extremely similar situation to what Bush went through.
Not a lot will change if Romney or Obama wins because Republicans, especially, if Romney loses, will simply position themselves for 2016, where they should have better candidates up for selection.
