Hillary Clinton has shown us that she’s not fit to lead

When attacking the enemy, experienced leaders not only focus on a single penetration of the defense, but on many fronts from land, air and sea to maximize the force directed on the objective.

The Republican attack on Hillary Clinton has, to date, failed miserably.

Why? No coordinated plan of attack. Consider the following skirmishes:

Good leaders take responsibility for their soldiers — not Clinton in Benghazi, where four perished because of her inability to take decisive action under stress.

Good leaders are strict in accounting for classified correspondence. Even the FBI director said she was careless. A second assault on the Department of Justice should question James Comey’s judgment, and that of the Attorney General. Where is it?

Why is it that over half of the nation disagrees with Comey’s decision?

Approaching November, I enjoin anyone to vote with me for any other candidate named on the ballot against her.

No, it’s not that I don’t want to see a woman president. I’ve publicly spoken in favor toward such admirable woman as Sens. Olympia Snow of Maine or Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Clinton is not a good fit for our nation, having clearly demonstrated this lack of leadership over the past decade.

August Runte, Atascadero
