If Carly Fiorina Is The GOP Nominee, Hillary Clinton (Who She Had "Great Admiration For") Will Be Elected President

For the last few months, everyone has seemed to have been raving about Carly Fiorina, or as I'm calling her, either "Mitt Romney in a Skirt" or "Carly FioRINO."

I've long been suspicious of the former Hewlett Packard CEO, named one of the worst CEOs and one whom I've heard from HP employees was hated by the workers. Even more so, why would we risk the future of our nation to someone with not only a dubious record as a CEO (as I've noted before) but who also lost her only political race to date.

Well, here's more reasons to suspect why Carly Fiorino only talks the conservative talk, but doesn't walk the walk, such as how she's gone after the record of Hillary Rotten Clinton as secretary of state.

But FioRINO sounded differently about the Hildebeast back in 2008 (BuzzFeed).
Over the weekend, the Washington Post Ruth Marcus wrote in a column that Fiorina told her in May of 2008 that if she wasn’t backing Sen. John McCain, she would have backed Clinton. A Fiorina spokeswoman said that Fiorina couldn’t remember the exchange and was probably talking about who she would back in the 2008 Democratic primary if she had to choose.
The article also noted that Fiorina declared her “great admiration and respect for Hillary Clinton and her candidacy and leadership,” at one gathering in 2008.
In one video uncovered by BuzzFeed News, Fiorina delivers a long and forceful praise of then-Senator Clinton for a political organization that promoted women in politics. Fiorina called Clinton “incredibly intelligent,” “determined,” and said she took great pride in her presidential run.
“I have such great admiration and empathy for Hillary Clinton,” Fiorina says in the video. “I have great admiration for her because I know what it takes in some small measure to do what she has done. She is obviously incredibly intelligent, focused, tough, determined, empathetic of all the tens of millions of people that she was trying to represent in her quest to become the first woman president of the United States.”
“And as a woman, I take great pride in the fact that Hillary Clinton ran for president. And I also watched with a lot of empathy as I saw how she was scrutinized, characterized, talked about as a woman,” continued Fiorina.
“While I think woman have made great progress in so many ways I also known from personal experience that women in positions of power – particularly bold women – who are trying to drive change as Hillary Clinton must surely is…bold women, women in power are characterized, scrutinized differently than their male counterparts are.”
That glowing praise is in line with a statement she made at another 2008 gathering, a press conference where she said Clinton had been subjected to sexism, albeit not by the Republican Party.
Fiorina said any woman in politics owes a debt of gratitude to Clinton.
“I have said numerous times, I disagree politically with Hillary, but I also have great admiration for Hillary Clinton,” declared Fiorina. “Her run for the presidency was historic. She was a great candidate. She has helped millions of women all over this country. Women of any political party owe a debt of gratitude to Hillary Clinton and I will bet that every woman up here agrees with me.”
Compare how FioRINO has slammed Sarah Palin, who has energized conservatives and Tea Party supporters. What has FioRINO done for the Tea Party? Furthermore, why did she praise Hillary in 2008 but slam Palin, who was the vice presidential nominee? Is it because she's too elitist for Sarah? Personally, I don't think someone who ran a computer company into the toilet has any business advising a governor who was enjoying near unanimous support from her constituents, until the liberal Democrat media complex began the mission to destroy her.

Seems like FioRINO, judging from her praise of Hillary Rotten, loves playing the sexism card, like a typical liberal. She did it with Donald Trump, and she attacked Rush Limbaugh back in 2012 for comments he made (and apologized for) about a Fluke who claimed she was having so much sex she couldn't afford birth control (SeeBS).
California Republican Carly Fiorina said Friday it is "insulting" for radio host Rush Limbaugh to call a student activist a "slut" and "prostitute" because she is pushing for employers to pay for contraception.
"That language is insulting in my opinion," said Fiorina, who launched an unsuccessful Senate bid against longtime California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer in 2010, on "CBS This Morning."
"It's incendiary and most of all, it's a distraction. It's a distraction from what are very real and important issues," the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard said.
So, FioRINO, as Dana Loesch noted in a piece I'd referenced when the whole Fluke controversy erupted, "bravely provided cover for the President and the ridiculous narrative of 'the war on women.'" Gee, thanks Carly, for that episode of "friendly" fire!

But that's typical of an establishment, country-club Republican. They can always be counted upon to attack a conservative, but always play kid gloves when it comes to liberals. Like she did recently with Ben Carson, who said he could not vote for a Muslim for President (ABC).
“I think that’s wrong,” Fiorina told Jimmy Fallon in an interview on Monday. “You know, it says in our Constitution that religion cannot be a test for office. It is also true that this country was founded on the principle that we judge each individual and that anyone, of any faith, is welcome here."
First of all, FioRINO, Carson was saying he couldn't vote for one, he didn't say they were not eligible under the Constitution. The problem is, for many Americans, their is a distrust of Muslims because of how many American Muslims want Shariah law in America, which is diametrically the opposite of the US Constitution and the basic principles this nation was founded upon.

Never mind how FioRINO, two weeks after 9/11, praised Islamic civilization (Freedom Outpost).
There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.
It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts. Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different creeds and ethnic origins.
One of its languages became the universal language of much of the world, the bridge between the peoples of a hundred lands. Its armies were made up of people of many nationalities, and its military protection allowed a degree of peace and prosperity that had never been known. The reach of this civilization's commerce extended from Latin America to China, and everywhere in between.
And this civilization was driven more than anything, by invention. Its architects designed buildings that defied gravity. Its mathematicians created the algebra and algorithms that would enable the building of computers, and the creation of encryption. Its doctors examined the human body, and found new cures for disease. Its astronomers looked into the heavens, named the stars, and paved the way for space travel and exploration.
Its writers created thousands of stories. Stories of courage, romance and magic. Its poets wrote of love, when others before them were too steeped in fear to think of such things.
When other nations were afraid of ideas, this civilization thrived on them, and kept them alive. When censors threatened to wipe out knowledge from past civilizations, this civilization kept the knowledge alive, and passed it on to others.
While modern Western civilization shares many of these traits, the civilization I'm talking about was the Islamic world from the year 800 to 1600, which included the Ottoman Empire and the courts of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo, and enlightened rulers like Suleiman the Magnificent.
Although we are often unaware of our indebtedness to this other civilization, its gifts are very much a part of our heritage. The technology industry would not exist without the contributions of Arab mathematicians. Sufi poet-philosophers like Rumi challenged our notions of self and truth. Leaders like Suleiman contributed to our notions of tolerance and civic leadership.
While FioRINO will attack the Iran Deal that Obama has unilaterally made with that terrorist regime, she headed Hewlett Packard when that company made millions of dollars in business with Iran (Bloomberg View).
HP’s unusual omnipresence inside Iran was first reported in 2008 by the Boston Globe, which discovered that in 1997 the company struck up a partnership with a new Indian company in Dubai called Redington Gulf. The partnership was so successful distributing in Iran that HP printers were No. 1 there, with 41 percent of the market share by 2007.
All U.S. companies were banned from exporting to Iran in 1995, when President Bill Clinton issued two executive orders tightening sanctions on Iran in response to Iran’s support for international terrorism and pursuit of weapons of mass destruction. If HP executives knew about what the Dubai-based distributor was doing, they would have been breaking U.S. law.
After the Globe article came out, the Securities and Exchange Commission, which investigates violations of sanctions, wrote HP a letter inquiring about the Iran business. HP responded by saying that over $120 million worth of its products had been sold to Redington Gulf for distribution in Iran by a foreign subsidiary based in the Netherlands. Because these sales took place through a foreign subsidiary, HP denied violating sanctions law.
When Fiorina was running against Barbara Boxer for California Senate in 2010, her campaign denied that she had any knowledge about HP’s business in Iran. "It is illegal for American companies to do business in Iran," her spokeswoman, Beth Miller, said at the time. "To her knowledge, during her tenure, HP never did business in Iran and fully complied with all U.S. sanctions and laws."
Fiorina's campaign did not respond to several requests for comment this week and last week.
But in 1999, HP’s general manager for the Middle East was quoted as saying, "Iran is a big market for Hewlett-Packard printers.” And Fiorina herself praised rising HP sales in the region in 2003, although she didn’t mention Iran, the San Jose Mercury News reported. Also in 2003, HP named Redington Gulf, the Dubai-based distributor, its “Wholesaler of the Year.” Redington put out a press release that year stating, "The seeds of the Redington-Hewlett-Packard relationship were sowed six years ago for one market — Iran.”
So there you have it. Carly may sound good, she may sound slick, but deep down, she's just Mitt Romney in a skirt. An establishment Republican who will be more of the same as we've come to expect from McLame, Romney, Boehner and McConnell..one who will attack a conservative to get media favor but go soft on her liberal opponents.

That's what she did against Barbara the Check Bouncer in 2010, and why she lost. That's why, if shes the GOP nominee, she'll lose to Hillary and we will lose the nation.
