The Debate Democrats Can’t Have

The over 18 million Americans who tuned to CNN on Tuesday night for the first Republican presidential debate since the terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino might have been pleasantly surprised. American anxieties over the threat of radical Islamic terrorism are nearing or surpassing their immediate post-9/11 peaks, and those who turned on the news to hear a substantive debate over the near-and long-term security challenges facing the nation were privy to one. For Democrats, this has proven frustrating. Theirs is a party that cannot have a serious debate over matters related to national security without condemning their party’s leader and his brand of crisis management and, thus, jeopardizing its own electoral viability in the process.

    What’s there to talk about for them? They’re going to talk about how their policies are working? Be like Obama claiming ISIS was contained on the eve of Nov. 13, they’ll look like fools. They’re going to talk about how new policies are needed? They’ve been running the show for 7 years, ain’t nobody been stopping you.

    They own it, all of it. Don’t let anyone forget.

    This is a serious dilemma for Hillary. Should she tell the truth about where Obama’s policies are heading, he is likely to unleash the Justice Department on her over the emails and family foundation finances.
