Hillary Clinton gave one helluva speech about principled foreign policy, in which she said we face a decision between a “fearful America and a strong, confident America.”
Saying America's security is at the heart of her campaign, Hillary tore into Donald Trump:
... I believe the person the Republicans have nominated for president cannot do the job. Donald Trump's ideas aren't just different, they are dangerously incoherent. They're not even really ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies. He is not just unprepared, he is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility.
Underscoring Trump's support for other countries having nukes, abandoning allegiances, torture and the murder of terrorists' family members, she mocked his self-professed “very good brain.”
Another great one:
If Donald gets his way, they'll be celebrating in the Kremlin.
It's a very good speech because she does mock him, yet remains serious and angry at his reckless ideas and ideology. I hope this is seen far and wide, particularly in California, the site of her speech.
Speech after the jump ...
