In the Wake of the Orlando Massacre, More Sure of Hillary Than Ever

My first thoughts after despair for the victims and their families was a wave of relief that Hillary has a good chance of being our President. These are the kinds of events our President has to face. The thought of Trump handling this kind of crisis is terrifying. This tragedy is all too serious and poses a real threat to Americans.

Several people I ran into today acknowledged, "Hillary is the best person for the job." She has the right attitude about gun control, extensive foreign policy experience, she understands the nuances of discrimination and minority hate crimes, the composure to make the best decisions and the compassion for those affected. Like Obama, she is absolutely the ideal person for a job that requires all those skills.

The events we are facing today are devastating. Heartfelt prayers for all the victims, their families and everyone mourning in the wake of this massacre. Our hearts are broken.

1. Agreed

Look at what the Republican Lt. Governor of Texas, Dan Patrick, posted on Twitter this morning:

4. Fighting terrorism with Trump's ego driven rhetoric is a recipe for disaster

I know we can count on Hillary to make thoughtful measured decisions and when she takes actions they will be decisive. What I love about the Democratic Party is its aversion to fundamentalism. Fundamentalism is just authoritarianism by another name and tips over into bloodshed to force people to comply. Even when the "idealists" think they have the best of intentions, extremism by definition excludes most people and is therefore never a natural fit. The Republican Party has become overrun with extremists and now they have Trump as their mascot.

7. What a despicable thing to say about human beings who have done nothing wrong

If God is being "mocked" it is by people like Dan Patrick who pick and choose whatever passages they need to support their hateful worldview.

5. Sanders has "Gun Control" on the list of things he want's us to comply with....

Unless he is being a liar, I can only assume that he wants the Democratic Party to agree with his "Rural State" gun ideas.

14. Yes, uponit, his very first response to the tagedy sounded like a schoolyard taunt

Not a word for the victims, not a thought about the many factors at play. What kind of a person does that, never mind someone who wants to lead the country?
