    Michael J Morell writes, "Even more important, the character traits he has exhibited during the primary season suggest he would be a poor, even dangerous, commander in chief." Morell served Presidents of both political parties and is himself neither a Democrat nor Republican. Verrrry interesssstinng, as they used to say on "Laugh In".

    Trump would be very dangerous as commander in chief to our enemies that is.

    I'm not sure I hold the opinions of CIA directors in high regard. They're all political appointees, have their own agendas and desires to build empires, and I'm even inclined to doubt that their highest investment is in the safety of our country.

    This is the same briefer to George Bush who gave an interview in which he said top administration officials systematically lied about weapons of mass destruction. And, of course, he did not resign from the CIA, but went on to become the acting Director twice. Too difficult for the guy to be straight up, right?

    Morell said, "In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation."

    That's accurate, regardless of one's opinion of Trump and Hillary. It's just a fact.

    In that case, we would also have to say that Hillary is a willful accomplice and abettor to the Russian Federation.

    That would seem to be fact also.

    Most folks with any sort of common sense are jumping ship and separating themselves from trump.

    but a few bozos want to go down with the ship.

    I am not a Trump fan. However....my opinion is that the quotation "a few bozos want to go down with the ship." should also apply to people who vote for Hillary Clinton. She has a remarkable lack of integrity.

    I'd save colossal for the amount of malfeasance she is capable of.
