Fiorina looking veepish

The big winner at CPAC may not have been Scott Walker -- who is blowing the competition out of the water as a revolutionary governor from a big blue state -- but rather Carly Fiorina. She has no political success and she bombed as CEO of Hewlett-Packard.

But she also is making sense and is showing a fearlessness. She had an I-beat-cancer attitude toward the Islamic State -- and calling out Hillary Clinton was brilliant.

Her CPAC remarks were brilliant. She attacked Hillary hard -- and fairly -- by making 4 points:
1. “Mrs. Clinton, name an accomplishment.”
2. “And in the meantime, please explain why we should accept that the millions and millions of dollars that have flowed into the Clinton Global Initiative from foreign governments do not represent a conflict of interest.”
3. “She tweets about women’s rights in this country and takes money from governments that deny women the most basic human rights. She tweets about equal pay for women but won’t answer basic questions about her own office’s pay standards – and neither will our president.”
4. “Hillary may like hashtags. But she doesn’t know what leadership means.”
The contrast between her an Clinton is stark. One established herself and achieved on her own merit against some real prejudice against women executives. The other is a professional first lady, having served 12 years as first lady of Arkansas and 8 as the national one.

But Fiorina is more than the anti-Hillary. PJ Media reported:
She criticized the Obama administration for having a “wrong-headed policy” on Syrian refugees. The Obama administration is reportedly planning to increase the number of refugees allowed in the United States. House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul (R-Texas) said admitting thousands of refugees is a very dangerous and reckless policy.
“ISIS has telegraphed that they want to exploit the refugee process to gain entrance into the West and United States. And we need to stop that,” he said.
Fiorina holds the same position as McCaul, arguing that ISIS is trying to “exploit” the problems with the U.S. legal immigration system that exists today.
I do not think Republicans will tarry this election cycle. If Scott Walker is as good a closer as I think he is -- and remember, he had to keep RINOs in line in 2011 when the unions threatened to wreck the state Capitol -- then the nomination could be over before Iowa. His job is to make clear that he is the nominee. That's called leadership.

But the field remains wide and deep. We have yet to hear from Rick Perry. Jeb Bush will not go away easily.

Just remember, some presidential candidates are auditioning for vice president, none more than Fiorina.



  1. Good words, good questions; and no answers to the questions.

  2. And just look at what Thunder Rodent Thighs did to any woman who came forward saying she had sex with or were sexually harassed by BJ. She led the attacks on the "bimbo eruptions". Just like Fauxchohantis is a fake Indian, TRT is a fake feminist. Without BJ she wouldn't have been a senator or a SecState. She owes everything to being married to BJ. Without him she's nothing.

  3. BJ is so aptly named.

    Look, the Clinton Foundation is part good deed, part tax scam to keep all three Clintons living the life of luxury and entitlement to which they've become accustomed. The current dust up over foreign government donations--which were obviously intended as a quid pro quo with a possible future re-occupant of the WH---reflects the same lack of ethical backbone Hillary! displayed as an attorney in the Rose law firm. I haven't forgotten Whitewater. Have any of you? Once a grifter, always a grifter. A no-talent who only wants the job in order to show up her husband whose natural abilities and easy success in politics she obviously resents as much as she savors.
