Foreign Policy Address or Insults

Hillary billed it as her major foreign policy address
Full media coverage by members of the press
For 42 minutes she gave her teleprompter speech
Did she deliver the solutions to the foreign policy issues this nation must reach?
A few minutes here and a few minutes there in a classic bait and switch
Almost the whole time devoted to an attack on Trump sales pitch
She was in essence trying to out Trump  Trump, a tactic tried by many a Red and failed
Leaving her policy and issue comfort zone and personal attacks flail
Clinton claimed that Trump is “temperamentally unfit” to be commander in chief
Electing him would put the U.S. on the world stage in a world of hurt and grief
In an election year where Trump and Sanders the normal rules have defied
She claimed his pronouncements were “not even ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies.”
Attacking Trump is not a foreign policy or a strategic or tactical plan
On how to deal with Putin, North Korea, China, ISIS, radical Islam or terror sponsored by Iran
One might well argue that her paranoia and secrecy needs
Makes her the one who is clearly unfit to lead
The private server was more than a mistake it was a classic example of Clinton’s need to conceal
Created to frustrate FOIA requests that the quid pro quo favors her emails would reveal
The counter puncher in Trump was quick to react
Tweets hitting “crooked Hillary” coming back
Trump may have his warts but deception and flaunting the law is not on his list
Pairing those traits with Hillary is impossible to resist
So like an elementary school yard brawl slinging words of mud and personal slime
Assuming she does not lose California or be indicted this election will be the most expensive and negative race of all time.
