DEBATE

Only 1 Europe Question Asked

While Saturday night’s debate mainly stuck to its foreign-policy pledge, the candidates left out one major issue: Europe’s mushrooming debt crisis. While the debate was focused mainly on Pakistan, Afghanistan, China, and Iran, the very last question dealt with the euro-zone crisis, which could threaten the U.S. economy. Only Jon Huntsman was able to answer the question about Europe, while Rick Perry was cut off in the middle of his answer by “the tyranny of the clock.”
