Awful Arrogance

Here’s a letter to the Wall Street Journal:

Here’s a question prompted by your report on Hillary Clinton’s plan to remake the U.S. energy sector (“Hillary Clinton Sidesteps Keystone in Climate Plan Rollout,” July 27): Regardless of who mishandled classified e-mails on Mrs. Clinton’s private server, and regardless of how and why such mishandling occurred – whether through carelessness, recklessness, or mischief – why should someone who cannot ensure the proper use of a single private server be trusted with the colossal power necessary to design and to oversee the remaking of a trillion-plus dollar sector of the U.S. economy (a sector, by the way, in which this person has zero experience)?

And keep in mind that Clinton proposes not only to oversee the remaking of the energy industry, she proposes to do so while also restructuring corporate governance and engineering other parts of society at the same time.  She – like the typical politician – fancies herself to be god-like; such a fancy means that in fact she is much closer in reality to being devilish.  No one with such delusions is to be trusted.  No one.
