This is response to Cindy Regan's letter published Oct. 27. Where on earth was your anger at George W. Bush when he lost 22 million emails? Colin Powell as Secretary of State used a private server.

So, Clinton has missing emails versus Trump totally unfit for office. Trump does love the uneducated.

I think Colin Powell is pretty well respected and has served this country with honor. Colin Powell just endorsed Clinton. His quotes from Newsday newspaper:

"Colin Powell, who served as U.S. Secretary of State in Republican President George W. Bush's administration, said on Tuesday he would vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 presidential election, according to Newsday newspaper.

Gen. Powell, who made the announcement at an event hosted by a Long Island business group in Woodbury, N.Y., said Republican Donald Trump was "not qualified" and had sold Americans a "bill of goods" that he could not deliver, Newsday said.

"He has insulted America in one way almost every day," Gen. Powell said of Mr. Trump, according to the newspaper.

"He has insulted Latino Americans. He has insulted African-Americans. He has insulted women. He has insulted his own party. He has insulted our allies around the world one by one. He has insulted veterans," Gen. Powell said.

He praised Mrs. Clinton and said he considered the Democratic nominee a "friend" whom he had known for 20 years.

"She is smart. She is capable. She was a good secretary of state," Gen. Powell said, according to Newsday.

"She is balanced, she has temperament and, no matter what anyone says, she has stamina... I think she is fully qualified to serve as the president of the United States and will serve it with distinction," Gen. Powell was quoted as saying by Newsday.

Yes, Republicans are angry with Trump, among other things, including our dysfunctional Republican Party in Minnesota, which is focused solely on tax breaks for the rich.

Tim Miller and the Republicans didn't get their work done. Everyone is angry about that. Don't reward incompetence by voting for Republicans.
