Abysmally Incompetent Clinton Campaign
[Today's post derives largely from an email, which started with "YOUR" in block caps below, that I sent to a pro-Hillary friend, in response to an email from him that referred to some assertions by a mutual friend whose relentless negativity has alienated both of us. I hope that the "ground game" (getting out the vote) enables her to win, but it will have to make up for an astonishingly inadequate campaign as to issues, the qualifications of the candidates, and the insane unfitness of Donald Trump to hold the most powerful job in the world.]

YOUR mention of Trump's not releasing his tax info shows part of the unbelievable incompetence of the Clinton campaign. They should have attacked this every week, and even 2 or 3 times a week. She also did not catch Trump up when he admitted that Obama has deported more illegal aliens than any earlier President! Clinton should have challenged Trump: "Which is it? Are our borders open, as you have consistently claimed, or has President Obama deported more illegals than ever before? Make up your mind. You can't assert both, because they are diametrically opposed. If YOU believe two diametrically opposed things at the same time, you are out of your mind, and need to seek professional help. You belong in a mental-health program or hospital ward, not the White House."
+
As for education, our schools are doing a GREAT job — but only for kids who attend. Schools can't do anything for kids who drop out, nor zonk out in class because they're on drugs or didn't sleep the nite before or don't eat right, so cannot focus.
+
As for race war, that's nonsense. White people are not invading black neighborhoods and murdering blacks. Blacks are killing blacks. Whites have nothing to do with the violence in the ghetto.
+
Nor did Clinton jump all over WikiLeaks, to ask "Where did these emails come from? They sure didn't come from my server, because that server was shut down long ago, and all the emails cleared from the server's hard drive to keep things from falling into the wrong hands. So where DID WikiLeaks get these materials? From the STATE DEPARTMENT'S servers or the FBI's servers? If from either of those sources, then plainly I was justified in NOT trusting the security of those servers. In fact, we have known for a very long time that the State Department has been hacked FOR MONTHS AT A TIME, but I was supposed to place classified information on those HACKED servers?"
+
And on, and on, and on. She has left ridiculous charge after charge unanswered, and permitted him to call her "crooked Hillary", without ONCE asking aloud, "Exactly what crime am I supposed to have committed? Listen, there are libel and slander laws in this country, and I am going to sue the hell out of you as soon as this campaign is over. I will demand HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars in damages, for, for example, all the extra outlay my campaign has had to make to try to counter your LIES. If there are laws that criminalize libel and slander made with malice aforethought, I will demand that YOU be prosecuted as a CROOK."
+
Moreover, Trump's lavish praise of Russian dictator Putin should have made him vulnerable to conservatives in his core constituency who HATE RUSSIA. Why has she not pointed out that Trump wants to cozy up with what many of his supporters regard as our Nation's worst enemy?
+
From the very outset, Hillary has put out only feeble and ineffectual replies to Trump's assertion that he will "Make America Great Again". Why has she not taken an aggressively nationalistic stance?:
"If Donald Trump thinks the United States is no longer great, he is seriously disordered, mentally. The United States is the greatest country in the history of the world. No matter what area of human activity you consider, the United States is the first and best. We have the largest, most dynamic economy; the unchallengeably greatest military; the most inventive technology in every sphere, from robotics to medicine and anything else you might name. We so thoroughly permeate world culture that it is practically American in nature, and not just pop culture but also high culture. Americans dominate music, film, dance, literature, and pretty much every other type of high culture all around this planet. Americans also dominate the Nobel Prizes year after year, racking up 363 Nobel laureates as No. 1 in the world, almost three times as many as the next country, Britain, which has had only 123. By any measure except area and population, the United States is the greatest country in the history of the world, and has contributed more to the advancement of civilization and assistance to people in distress than any other country or empire, by far. We don't generally brag about these things, and I wouldn't brag now except to defend this greatest of all civilizations from Donald Trump's outrageous and contemptible slander that this is no longer a great country. Of course it is, and Donald Trump owes the United States a 'yuge' apology."
Nor did Clinton ever point out the folly of expecting an (ostensible) billionaire to care about the little guy. (By the way, was Donald Trump ever seen wearing a baseball-style cap before this campaign?)
+
Clinton hit Trump on using Chinese steel in his Chicago hotel, but only twice that I ever heard. Nor did she hit him on his investments in China and having clothing with his brand on it that is made in China, Bangladesh, and even his hated Mexico!
+
Trump also reportedly has investments in various countries, including both China and Russia. Why didn't she demand, "If you are so concerned about the flight of American capital to create jobs in other countries at the cost of jobs for Americans, why didn't YOU invest HERE?"
+
Never have I seen so incompetent, weak, and indirect counter-campaigning. Trump makes a charge; she doesn't answer it, but talks about something entirely different. She must have the worst campaign advisors in the history of Presidential campaigns for at least 60 years.
+
I hope the electorate will back away from temptations to vote for someone plainly unfit to be President just to express their frustration with things they feel powerless against. They must not pull that trigger, and put the irresponsible lunatic Donald Trump, who has no solutions of any kind to any problem, in position to start World War III of either military or economic kind. But if they do decide either to vote instead for Hillary or just abstain from voting for anyone, it will have little to do with how Hillary Clinton has run her campaign.
