After watching segments of the Democratic National Convention, I am amazed at the gullibility of those in attendance.

Case in point: Suppose I was chosen candidate and Michelle Obama said I was a role model for the nation’s children, despite my having publicly exhibited a serious lack of moral character, e.g.:

• Lying – Told the media that I and my spouse are broke, all the while raking in millions in book royalties and speaking engagements.

• Law breaking – As a government employee (secretaries of defense, state, treasury, etc., are all government employees by appointment) conducted government business on my personal server in violation of federal law.

• Carelessness – Sayeth the investigators and FBI head about transmitting classified material on my personal server (whether secure or not).

• Irresponsibility – Blamed lower echelons of my department staff for failing to send augmentive security forces requested by one of our ambassadors, which led to his death and three others at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

• Insincerity – During re-examination of those deaths, and of passing classified material on my personal server, said, “At this point, what difference does it make?”

Would you still view me as a role model for our children and vote for me to be your president? I think not. So, why would anyone with intelligence vote for someone who has demonstrated those very traits?
