The chorus of responsible, reputed, experienced people who are concerned by the notion of a Trump presidency continues to grow. This is a 33-year CIA veteran who has seen many an administration on both sides of the political spectrum knows a thing or two about what it takes for the role of Commander in Chief. He says Trump is not only unqualified but may pose a danger to America.

Of course, right-wingers who are proud of eschewing things like facts and reason will be quick to dismiss the comments of anyone with experience.

Quote:
During a 33-year career at the Central Intelligence Agency, I served presidents of both parties — three Republicans and three Democrats. I was at President George W. Bush’s side when we were attacked on Sept. 11; as deputy director of the agency, I was with President Obama when we killed Osama bin Laden in 2011.

I am neither a registered Democrat nor a registered Republican. In my 40 years of voting, I have pulled the lever for candidates of both parties. As a government official, I have always been silent about my preference for president.

In sharp contrast to Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Trump has no experience on national security. Even more important, the character traits he has exhibited during the primary season suggest he would be a poor, even dangerous, commander in chief.

These traits include his obvious need for self-aggrandizement, his overreaction to perceived slights, his tendency to make decisions based on intuition, his refusal to change his views based on new information, his routine carelessness with the facts, his unwillingness to listen to others and his lack of respect for the rule of law.

The dangers that flow from Mr. Trump’s character are not just risks that would emerge if he became president. It is already damaging our national security.
And he's right.

And he's also damn right that Putin, a career intelligence officer well trained to identify and exploit weaknesses in people, would prefer a Trump presidency.

It can't be repeated often enough.

I can't stand Hillary Clinton (and I'm a Democrat), but he is absolutely right.

It's too bad the GOP nominated Trump. They actually had a chance to win this one.

He's unfit to take out the garbage (unless he gets in it of course). Of course, posting this here, on a forum that is so full of paid shills for racist and white supremest organizations, is a pretty bad place to post it. Sorta like going down to Hades and complaining about the smell to the Devil.
