Entitlements and National Security

by Ramesh Ponnuru

There is a connection, and that connection is worth discussing. But considering how much the candidates talk about debt issues at other debates, it would be nice if they talked about national-security issues that don’t come up much in those other debates. For example: the relationship with India, the drug war in Mexico, the fallout from the eurozone, the relationship with China. . . none of which has been the subject of a question yet tonight.
