I watched the Republican presidential debates Wednesday night in hopes that – this being the second debate – the people asking questions would steer the subject away from personalities and addressing verbal insults the candidates had made about each other and toward some meaningful dialogue dealing with the mountain of serious issues the next president will have to deal with.

In a time when it's as evident as the nose on your face that Russia has a leader who is every bit as ambitious, dangerous and possibly even slightly demented as any hardline communist butcher who ever ruled over the old Soviet empire, it is clear that they are up to their old tricks of violating American air space with their war planes and operating their submarines just off our coast for no other reason than to check our resolve as to how far we are willing to let them go.
