My Proposal to the Debate Commission

7:25 am ET

Given the primacy of the looming fiscal cliff, here’s my “Morning Joe” call for a political audible:

This is a proposal that probably won’t be taken up but I’d be for scrapping foreign policy as the topic of the last debate. I think we’ve had a fair amount of foreign policy discussion. The last debate should be all about the Fiscal Cliff. 90 minutes. What are you going to do about taxes? What are you going to do about spending? Because we’re not having the adequate debate if it doesn’t happen in that last debate, which it won’t because it’s now on foreign policy. We’re never going to have them talk about it. It is the issue facing the country. It is the issue for whoever gets elected because, if they don’t deal with it in January, we’re going to have a world of trouble.
