Letters to the Editor

Did you understand?

A frequent contributor recently opined: “Donald Trump is undoubtedly the least qualified individual to be the nominee of a major political party in the history of our country.” However, Trump has been an extraordinarily successful businessman. Since one of the primary presidential responsibilities is to manage the country, Trump has already shown himself to be a superbly competent executive.

In contrast, Barack Hussein Obama had been a United States Senator for just over two years when he announced his intentions to seek the office of the presidency. Prior to that time, he accomplished nothing while serving in the Illinois Senate. Before that, he was a community organizer.

Our correspondent goes on to commend Hillary Clinton — “Hillary’s service and accomplishments are unsurpassed by any American.” First, four Americans died in Benghazi as a direct result of Clinton’s incompetence. Second, as Secretary of State Clinton compromised America’s national security by using an unsecured computer system to conduct America’s top secret business. If you haven’t been paying attention, the Russians acknowledged they possess her messages.

I have saved the best for last. Barack Obama has publicly said Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecured computer system was “carelessness.” Did you understand what Obama said? Clinton was careless in exercising her responsibilities as Secretary of State.

Obama’s assessment clearly disqualifies Clinton from occupying the White House. This nation cannot afford a careless president.
