This year is different indeed. I hope the editorial board is prepared for the negative reaction that will surely come their way. But they got it right with this call ...Since The Arizona Republic began publication in 1890, we have never endorsed a Democrat over a Republican for president. Never. This reflects a deep philosophical appreciation for conservative ideals and Republican principles.
This year is different.
Only Trump thinks he has the best temperament. It should be clear to everyone else that Trump is petty, vindictive and emotionally stunted. His attack against the former Miss Universe being another case in point. Trump reflexively retaliates against any perceived personal slight. How could he possibly be the right choice to be the chief diplomat of the U.S.?The challenges the United States faces domestically and internationally demand a steady hand, a cool head and the ability to think carefully before acting.
Hillary Clinton understands this. Donald Trump does not.
AR nails it. Trump's candidacy and his campaign is beneath the dignity of this nation.Clinton retains her composure under pressure. She’s tough. She doesn’t back down.
Trump responds to criticism with the petulance of verbal spit wads.
That’s beneath our national dignity.
Trump’s inability to control himself or be controlled by others represents a real threat to our national security. His recent efforts to stay on script are not reassuring. They are phony.
The president commands our nuclear arsenal. Trump can’t command his own rhetoric.
