It has gotten so that when I arise in the morning, instead getting breakfast, I have to get on this computer and write.
We’ve heard this saying before, “We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory!” That’s what is going on right now with your campaign. As I see it, you’ve pretty much gone it alone; that is, your little circle of advisors seems to be afraid to let your surrogates go out and campaign for you. Frankly, I am tired of seeing some republican surrogate of the miscreant you are going up against for the presidency of these United States of America on TV, 85% of the time on MSNBC and CNN. I expect them to be on FOX.
Now that your exposed missteps have given fodder to the opposition and your reputation with many realistic progressive portion of your followers and true independents has diminished via the republican version of Benghazi and your e-mails, you need to step up your game because, as I write, we are in the seventh inning of this ballgame/ struggle and we need a lot of bases hits to come out a winner..
It was a setback for there to be questions about how you handled your e-mails. I surmise that your advisors, based on your misunderstanding of what Colin Powell told you about how he handled his personal emails, went further than necessary or required, to maintain your privacy. They failed you and like all “bosses” you had to take the flack. The same thing with Benghazi, you took the flack, although as Mr. Powell has said, it was witch hunt. Twenty-twenty hindsight is always better, but it’s time to get back on your feet. Sometimes it better to use your “closer” in the seventh inning to stem the possibility of defeat rather than in the ninth when the win is virtually out of reach.
So, let’s do this. Get your WHOLE team out on the field right now! Don’t try to climb out of this hole by yourself. Schumer, Pelosi, Reid, Booker, Warren, Clyburn, Hoyer, Murray, Durbin, even Donna Brazile need to hit the pavement, number one. Bernie’s still pouting, so he’s a big “maybe”.
Lose the “hubris” Mr. Powell“ talked about. Call him. Call Condoleeza Rice, and Mark Cuban and Mike Bloomberg and Warren Buffet and have them in for a private dinner at your home including Bill. Clear the air. Apologize to Mr. Powell for the misunderstanding, apologize for not listening to sage advice; ask for their ideas and their inclusion, and come up with a cohesive plan for the next 45 days. Ask them to get involved because…. trump is a national disgrace and an international pariah……and is deplorable.
Trump’s followers do not care about justice and righteousness. We counted on the American people being “American”. We know now that some are willing to let bias and bigotry win and gain nothing.
They don’t care about the “Foundation” or what good work Hillary has done over her public life. They do not care about her tenure as Secretary of State, or having health care or who dies from Zika or HIV. They just do not care……They don’t care about bringing the economy back, or saving the auto industry or stemming the spate of combat deaths or the increased job and educational opportunities. They just don’t care… They care about control…. and chance to create a nation where they can continue to appear that they are in a ”pure” nation.
We cannot afford to turn back the progress this country has made and turn it over to bigots and fear-mongers. We are great country, built by all of us…with the opportunity to include everybody in its success. Other nations are appalled at what they see going on here They see the USA under republicans akin to North Korea; and they are afraid…..and not feeling safe. We must restore and insure that this nation continues to make progress toward, “a more perfect nation”.
And another thing, if someone insults me publicly, they are not welcome in my house until they apologize in public the same way they excoriated me, and they PROVE they are worthy of my company on common ground. But not in my house yet!
I know religious people always think they have to be courteous, turn the other cheek, and that they can save a soul, if the soul just will just repent…… but as I see it, you gotta repent outside the church, before you come in, not inside. Baptizing somebody don’t mean a darn thing if they do not yet, believe they have sinned!!!! Hint, hint…. Flint church, Rev. Faith Green Timmons of the Bethel United Methodist Church and the rest of you pastors….
Enough said, I’m out!!!!
