The second GOP debate is in the books. Carly Fiorina is, by most accounts, the big winner, with Donald Trump still standing tall.

We turned to several members of the Political A-Team, namely Richard Baehr of the American Thinker, Dr. Charles Lipson of the Political Science Department at the University of Chicago, and Joseph Morris, former Assistant Attorney General under President Reagan.

As expected, this is top-shelf punditry, and a good exercise in sober, informed analysis.

    I must accuse you and your guests of intellectual laziness in discussing Trump’s policy positions, or absence of same. You cheerfully speculate when there is an objective source of information at your fingertips.

    I have heard no discussion, here or elsewhere, about Trump’s 2011 book on politics: Time to Get Tough—-Making America #1 Again. Apparently written to help defeat Obama in 2012, it starts with criticism of China that mirrors his recent comments. It is written in his style of speaking so may not be ghost-written. Those who speculate that Trump has no ideological foundation, and will withdraw when the thrill is gone, may be wrong. You should challenge your guests to read up on his positions and prepare fruitful criticism. If your guests can prove he is the reincarnation of Huey Long, perhaps they can help voters to objectively assess Trump.
