The Thing No Republican Candidate Mentioned
Posted by Moira Whelan
In the very sparse and weak treatment of international issues in tonight’s debate, not a single candidate mentioned Annapolis.
Not only that, these guys were allowed to skate by with only sweeping assertions about “radical Islam” and the like. Not a single candidate was asked to address in detail what they would do to address the challenges we face…except to say that we should face them. No policy proposals, no tough ideas, just rhetoric.
In contrast, every Democratic debate is full of in-depth and proactive answers by all of the candidates on global issues.
I can only draw one conclusion from this: people must trust Democrats more on security issues, and would rather hear from them, not Republicans on the issue. Otherwise, if it were so important to them, they’d talk about it, right?
