I remember Carly well from her failed 2010 Senate run against Barbara "Don't Call Me Ma'am" Boxer, and that really kind of soured my view of her, as to her ability to take on the Left, especially after a more conservative candidate was defeated by her in the primary, as well as how Carly showed her true establishment leaning during that race.
Well, I have a lot of questions for all of the potential GOP nominees, and I'd like start with Carly Fiorina, since she is the "anti-Hillary."
How can we trust you to be a consistent conservative, if you are elected President? Because quite frankly, your words don't match up with your actions.
Video came up this weekend showing how Carly the supposed conservative stood against Ted Cruz in his valiant fight to defund Obamacare in 2013 (Right Scoop).
Everybody could see this train wreck coming. I actually feel badly for John Boehner. I think this is Ted Cruz and President Obama’s shutdown. I think Ted Cruz’s tactics were wrong.
There’s no honor in charging a hill that you know you can’t take, only casualties, although Ted Cruz maybe got name recognition and money along the way. But President Obama wanted this shutdown. And Ted Cruz played right into his hands.In August of 2013, she said shutting down the government over Obamacare would be the wrong thing to do.
So, in other words, Carly the alleged conservative stood on the side of people like Karl Rove, John McLame and the establishment GOP who all claimed Obamacare was bad law, and it should be repealed. But when the rubber met the road, didn't have the political courage to make the case for the American people, and neither did they make the case that it was Obama who was shutting down the government, because he would sign anything without funding his failed socialist health-care scheme.
And that's not all. Keep in mind her 2010 Senate race was endorsed by former Alaska Governor and 2008 VP nominee Sarah Palin. But what has been the thanks Ms. Fiorina has given Sarah Palin?
Recently, she attacked Palin by blaming her for John McLame's 2008 loss, because Palin didn't meet with Carly the Almighty for economic advice (UK Daily Mail).
Maybe Palin had good reason to not meet with her. Why would you meet with an advisor to your campaign when they publicly attacked you on the air by saying she wasn't ready to run a corporation?
Well, why would I want to take advice on running a company from someone who was fired as CEO of HP and one of the worst high-tech CEOs, for running that company into the ground and shipping American jobs overseas, but before she bailed out with a golden parachute.
Carly is an establishment wolf, who ran I believe because the establishment didn't want Palin to run in 2016. They see Carly as more upclass and elitist than Palin, whom the establihsment looks down their nose at as some backwoods hick from Alaska.
Well, I'd trust the leadership of a redneck woman over a high-class one any day of the week!
