I see. I guess you are another person that believes only what you saw on the Internet. I suppose deleting an email is worse than stealing money from people that think they are going to a "university."

And this may surprise you but Obama's approval rating is around 50%. Which, by using math, is almost twice that of dubyas approval rating when he left office. I know, math is tough to understand sometimes.

If you keep electing career politicians nothing is ever going to change. There is only one clear choice.

Vote Trump.

For some reason, I doubt that Albert Einstein would have been impressed with Donald Trump.

Or his "university" for that matter.

Apparently so is reading comprehension.

It's an average approval rating... That means from beginning to end of term. Nobody cares about 50%... Bush was 92% at 9/11... A helluva lot higher than Obama ever got.

... and yeah Hillary's corruption is far worse than anything Trump.

That's the most over-used cliché in politics. And it's been applied to just about everything else, too.

There's no evidence Einstein ever actually said it. At the same time, no one else has ever been attributed to saying it, either.

Here's some history on the cliché:

“The definition of insanity” is the most overused cliché of all time - Salon.com

Even so, like all clichés, there is a grain of truth in it. That grain is now called confirmation bias. When any person believes his thought on a matter, any matter, is correct, he tends to find confirmation to support his belief, even when none actually exists.

And everyone does it. It's not at all limited to the insane. Actually, the insane tend to lose their bias, depending on the mental disorder they suffer from.

In fact, attributing the saying to Einstein may show just how much we are all prone to confirmation bias. Even though the man himself is long gone, when anyone is asked who the smartest man in the world is, he's still on the top of the list. Many who say he is don't even know he's dead.

Einstein himself allowed Steven Hocking was probably smarter than he was, because Hocking envisioned unexpected outcomes from Einstein's theories that stumped him when he was alive. Even Einstein's smartest acolytes struggled to understand Hocking's early proofs.

Lol! Average? Well, that's one way to try and improve dubyas record since he left office at the nadir of his approval rating anyways. But, I look at it as people getting more time to know you and your policies which, for Obama, has been steadily increasing his approval late into his presidency and for dubya steadily decreased into his welcomed departure from office.

Deleting emails and sending them unsecured could have caused deaths that we will never know about

I guess all three inquiries by the congressional republicans would have uncovered that by now if it happened. Although uncovering the truth isn't really the forte of present day Republicans anyways. They're better inventors of the truth.

You actually think they have the clearance to read SAP/SIC documents? Or the clearance to know if someone deep undercover in S.O. was killed because of the information gathered in the hacks to her server?

No, they would never know, ever--that kind of info is far above their pay grade.
