The Great Debate

The Great Debate

Update: Brilliant pre-debate analysis by James Taranto.  Josh Marshall makes a salient point, re: Trump’s greatest handicap entering tonight’s debate. Personally, I tend to agree with Derb. Most voters will overlook an ignorance of policy details-see Aleppogate-if they have confidence in a candidate’s leadership abilities. That said, Trump does have to exhibit some minimal...

Chutzpah

Chutzpah

As if installing a Democratic Party fundraiser with virtually no experience in enforcing immigration law-and no interest in doing so in the future-as the head of the Department of Homeland Security weren’t enough, the U.S. Senate is now poised to confirm a nominee who is under the cloud of an investigation by the inspector...

Setting The Record Straight

Setting The Record Straight
