Skip to comments.Carly Fiorina emerges as GOP candidate to watch. (Older article w good info)
Posted on 04/28/2016 11:52:51 AM PDT by Beautiful_Gracious_Skies
Hardly anybody was watching what Carly Fiorina did Thursday, but just about everybody was talking about it Friday morning: The former Hewlett-Packard executive crushed her six male counterparts in the JV debate of Republican presidential hopefuls. Her sharp command of everything from foreign policy to cybersecurity issues and her presidential poise had Rush Limbaugh and MSNBC's liberal pundits gushing about her performance, virtually guaranteeing her highly improbable campaign a big-time bump and a spot in the varsity lineup...
...Limbaugh replayed her closing statement: "Hillary Clinton lies about Benghazi. She lies about emails. She is still defending Planned Parenthood.... 2016 is going to be a fight between conservatism and a Democrat party that is undermining the very character of this nation. "We need a nominee who is going to throw every punch, not pull punches, and someone who cannot stumble before he even gets into the ring."....
...."She cast herself as the candidate who would take the fight to Hillary Clinton," said Pitney, also a former GOP operative. "That's what Republican voters want to hear."....
....Yet experts also say her likely rise in the polls will also inevitably attract more criticism.....
Fiorina's weaknesses, may be hard for voters to ignore....
She has never held elected office, in 2010... Fiorina lost her bid to replace Sen. Barbara Boxer by a wide margin despite Republican sweeps in the rest of the country....
But perhaps the biggest target on her back is her tenure as HP's CEO, where her slash-and-burn tactics led to layoffs of 30,000 employees.
"All the Democrats have to do is pull out the Barbara Boxer attack ads -- they don't even have to change them," Pitney said of the ads featuring laid-off employees whose jobs were shipped to China and India, even as Fiorina reaped tens of millions in compensation.

I’ll just leave this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEnGtDbM66w
She is the polar opposite of the Trump. How can Fiorina be seen as a job creator to turn the US economy around when......
All the Democrats have to do is pull out the Barbara Boxer attack ads they dont even have to change them! ....the biggest target on her back is her tenure as HPs CEO, where her slash-and-burn tactics led to layoffs of 30,000 employees.
This ad would kill the ticket:
While she outsourced Californians jobs, Fiorina tripled her salary and bought a million-dollar yacht and five corporate jets. ... Carly Fiorina. Outsourcing jobs. Out for herself.
In 1999, Carly Fiorina was named CEO of Hewlett-Packard, the first woman to lead a Fortune 100 company. Fiorina reorganized the companys structure and forced a controversial merger with Compaq Computer Corp. in 2002. While the merger succeeded, HPs board fired Fiorina and gave her a $21 million severance package in 2005.
Compaq, HP performance, and prior election campaign...
No doubt about, she is the one...
Fiorina was a non starter then, bringing her back was insane.
What does she bring to Cruz? Other than ovaries?
Cruz was collapsing before this, he’s just ensured it will collapse that much faster with her around....
I agree, in most parts, she is the kiss of death to his campaign.
It all has to do with the 500,000 dollar transfer from the Cruz PAC to the Carly PAC. This is not an impromptu decision. He owes her something and she wants to stay current in the news. Unsure if she helps or hurts in Cali, assuming he remains in the race.
She’s no gain in Cali... She destroyed HP, no one in tech with a memory is going to support her... Cruz’s campaign was dead before this decision, at this point its twilight zone watching Cruz... his detachment from reality is surreal.
Carly Fiorina will be perfect when Ted Cruz needs someone to lay off his campaign staff.
Didn't she win ONE (1) delegate before dropping out?
Help Cruz in California? California is not a caucus state.
Will she outsource Cruz's campaign? Hello! This is Cruz Campaign/Canadian Pharmacy Erectile Dysfunction medication calling.
She needs watched. Everyone should know by now what a open border/cheap labor globalist she is!
Cruz proves his globalist/open border alliance with FioRINO pick!

CARLY ALERT!!! Birds of Feather? Cheap Labor & Common Core
Earlier today I read about a Craig Barrett who held a private fundraiser for Fiorina on Sept. 10th in Arizona. He is the chief Common Core pusher in AZ and Board member/ Chairman of Achieve Inc., the Common Core standards architects.
But I just found that this guy Barrett also heads Intel and the push for more foreign workers. The fundraiser featured Former US Sen. Jon Kyl...who in 2007 with Ted Kennedy and McCain was one of the senators to write Bushs amnesty. Carly is in bed with the enemy!
Link to fundraiser: http://archives.mcrcbriefs.org/2015/08/8-30-15-briefs.html
The largest donation to the Fiorina super PAC close to $1.6 million came from Jerry Perenchio, the former CEO of Univision and national finance co-chairman for John McCains 2008 presidential campaign with deep ties to California. http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/31/politics/carly-fiorina-super-pac/
A couple years ago, TTC told you that CARLY also did her share of hispandering during her failed California Senate run. She is tied up with PRO Amnesty lobbyists, like Grover Norquist.
[snip] Fiorina is a MCCAIN GIRL!
Latinos Launch 42-City Bus Campaign to Get Out the Vote for Fiorina
WASHINGTON, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ Today the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, a leading voice on Latino....
This is a PRO AMNESTY group....do not be fooled. Its chocked full of the MOST pro amnesty gop hacks known!
The group is against same sex marrige....so what??? If we amnesty 20 plus million illegal aliens there wont be a country left to fix that problem. Its a hook to fool social conservatives!! The GOP is becoming a master at that!
At which point Fiorina, then a campaign surrogate for presumptive GOP nominee John McCain, offered some unprompted praise for Clinton: If Fiorina hadnt been backing McCain, she told me, she would have been for Clinton.
Thats off the record, Fiorina immediately added.
Deep in the LA Times article it states she may have appeal with “Tea Party” conservatives. I’m not even sure who that is anymore? Ted attracts the isolated prairie lands people who haven’t been doing any extra research beyond what Team Cruz forwards in the mail.
People in SD, SF, SB, LA, & Orange County are much more savvy then to fall for his spiel. Ted has already been exposed, or exposed himself, ha. IMHO.
If Cruz needs to pick someone to help with the Tea Party, then he can’t even shore up what is supposed to be his base... he’s done, he needs to go... At this point he’s just damaging himself long term....
Seriously, its getting to the point where his 2018 re-election bid for senate may be at risk. Even Texas has a limit to how much embarrassment they will endure.
Gross, just gross. The more you know about her, the worse it gets. Ted Chose well for himself. You need to start a thread on this tonight and expose all of this. Please do.
Carly Alert: Your job has Just Left on Carly’s Yacht to Mexico or China!!!
” You need to start a thread on this tonight and expose all of this. Please do.”
Please feel free to share the article. FR doesn’t like us posting from our blogs, so I won’t.
“Cruz on Kindly back to Texas, Ted. You gave it your best shot.”
That was the first day I signed up here 3/17 and I posted that above title. And was quickly attacked by many who are now long gone. JR stepped in to back them off and welcomed me.
Five weeks later,
“Cruz on Kindly up to Calgary, Ted. You are a losing fauxservative.”
Actually, if Ted spun 40 degrees, he could do very well up North, eh?
She’s good. The company has done well thanks to her restructuring. It was full of total dead wood that didn’t want any changes to a failing model, and she got rid of them. And the remaining ones got her fired.
She’s the only pro-business candidate we have, and where do you think employment comes from?
30,000 employees = dead wood?
Nope, Carly is bad to the bone, no thanks.
And her sidekick is not eligible to run for potus.
