LONGSHOT GIVES IT A GO …
|| By FITSNEWS || Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina officially entered the “Republican” presidential primary this week – becoming the fifth announced candidate on the GOP side.
“I am running for president,” Fiorina tweeted Monday morning.
Shortly after that, the 60-year-old Austin, Texas native appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America t0 flesh out her reasons for running.
“I think I’m the best person for the job because I understand how the economy actually works,” Fiorina said on the show. “I understand the world; who’s in it.”
Fiorina is the only female seeking the GOP nod, which – as we’ve seen – has made her an effective critic of presumed Democratic nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton. In fact Fiorina took Clinton to task in her announcement, saying the former first lady/ senator/ secretary of state is “clearly not trustworthy.”
“She has not been transparent about a whole set of things that matter,” she said.
That’s an understatement …
Fiorina has never held elected office. She was defeated soundly by liberal U.S. senator Barbara Boxer in a 2010 race for one of California’s U.S. Senate seats. Fiorina – who gave $6.5 million to her own campaign – has previously supported establishment “Republicans” like U.S. senator John McCain. In fact she campaigned for McCain in 2008, defending his selection of Sarah Palin as vice presidential nominee and attacking Palin’s critics as “sexists.”
Fiorina joins retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, U.S. senator Ted Cruz, U.S. senator Rand Paul and U.S. senator Marco Rubio as an announced “Republican” candidate. Numerous other GOP contenders – including early 2016 frontrunners Jeb Bush and Scott Walker – are expectedly to formally enter the race in the coming months.
On the Democratic side, Clinton and socialist independent U.S. senator Bernie Sanders are the only two announced candidates.
Does Fiorina stand a chance?
Probably not. In fact her bid appears to be less about winning and more about positioning – with sources close to her campaign telling FITS she’s eyeing a possible vice presidential nod (or a cabinet appointment within a “Republican” administration).
Still, her gender should ensure that her campaign receives disproportionate press coverage (especially on anti-Clinton pronouncements) and Fiorina has shown herself to be an adept messenger. Also she’s got a compelling personal narrative as a breast cancer survivor.
On the “minus” side? Her 2010 defeat and stormy tenure at Hewlett Packard.
Anyway, to learn more about Fiorina’s candidacy, visit her official campaign website.
An actual sane Republican.
She hasn’t got a chance.
You make such a good convert, Buzz. GT and I are proud of you and take all the credit.
LMAO!!!! +10.Boz is in heat this morning.Mommy left her purse out and he found enough change for a slurpee at the Kangaroo.
Boz gets me without even trying.
GT gets me when he takes the blue pills and master pogo’s asshole is worn out.
Lucky for Tango his Obamacare covers the blue pills right? LMAO!!!
lol…when Boz got banned from the Sun News Opinion Blog he flooded the blog with dozens’s of his weirdo Facebook friends to attack the contributors he was at war with…welcome…same going on here…
Zero chance. A gigantic ego trip.
And which Presidential candidate is not on a gigantic ego trip?
I’ve come to believe it’s impossible to run for President with out being afflicted with narcissistic personality disorder.
Combined with strong masochistic traits for the beating you take in the process
Pretty good point.Obama however is the FIRST President we have ever elected that doesn’t like America.
That’s 95% of who is running on the GOP ticket.
…and 100% of who is running the Democrat ticket.
That’s what you guys said right until Obama won his reelection, right?
HP cranks out Wall-mart quality junk. HP is known for are the cheapest printers in the electronics department… You can throw it away and buy a new printer cheaper than you can replace cartridges. Maybe that works for HP.
Would love to see a debate between Carly and Hillary.
Just read that ER visits are up 70% since Obamacare began.Oh wait. Obamacare was going to end ER visits, so the socialist regime occupying the wHite House told us.
Reason? No doctors.Thank you Muslim Obama.A major reason NO Democrat can win in 2016.
Source for the 70% increase in ER visits?

Damn. More people receiving health care. Can you believe it?
Maybe rather than running around liking freaking Chicken Little pissing your pants you could move to the “solution” part of the show which is a plan to have some medical staff help educate and link patients to the appropriate level of care. If that resource is scare, then do something to help expand it. Pants pissing and jumping up and down yelling “I told you so” only confirms the belief that you aren’t interested in solutions.
It’s on Twitter. Nothing is official until it’s Tweeted. Can’t be Preznit if you don’t Tweet it.
“I can do for America what I did for HP.”
“I can do for America what I did for HP.”…if that means reducing the size of government, that would be outstanding.
Reducing the size of government would increase the value of America, we the stockholders of America would keep more of your money. Of course if you think our money is really the government’s money my comment would be foreign to you.
If smaller meant more valuable she should have fired half the company and doubled its value. Of course in the real world things don’t work like that.
Nothing says competent leadership like being forced to resign by the board of directors. Man, you have to be really, really liked by the shareholders for that to happen, right?
By the way, HP’s stock jumped after she left.
Who are you…Rocky’s Bama and HC or Reducing the Value of America or HP’s Stock or fc or Zero Chance
Would that be French Foreign?
It means sending more jobs to China.
Sending government jobs to China, that’s a good idea.
Maybe she can cut our government work force.
Hey Rocky.See my post about how Obamacare is failing.ER visits are up 70% since Obamacare.You told us all Obamacare would end those expensive ER visits.
So, if you’re insured with Medicaid and you go the HR to received medical care, that is bad. What worked better was when you didn’t even go see a doctor. Just waited until the state paid to cut your leg off and give you full disability?
When could you NEVER get medical care? By law you are treated in the ER.
No fucking doctors Rocky.You liberal socialists lied to us again.Free insurance means nothing if you can’t find a doctor.Been telling you for months these people on expanded Medicaid can’t find a doctor.ER or pharmacy to see a nurse.
You clowns allowed Muslim Obama to destroy the health care system.
Has your split personality disorder been diagnosed by a real doctor?
Are you “fc” or “Rocky’s Bama and HC” or what next?
Liberalism is a mental illness.I like you ‘stickler’.Don’t tell em you are a liberal..or that you have a gun…:-)
‘split personality disorder’???Damn you have edited two different posts on this thread.I answer your dumb ass questions and then you change your original post…:)
My apologies, but only one post was edited. I guess I could blame my crappy Time Warner Cable service today for being so slow on the uptake.
Three-quarters of emergency physicians say they’ve seen ER patient visits surge since Obamacare took effect — just the opposite of what many Americans expected would happen.
A poll released today by the American College of Emergency Physicians shows that 28% of 2,099 doctors surveyed nationally saw large increases in volume, while 47% saw slight increases. By contrast, fewer than half of doctors reported any increases last year in the early days of the Affordable Care Act.
2,099 doctors surveyed, 28% saw large increases, 47% saw slight increases. This is not the same as ERs across the nation seeing 70% more patients. Someone needs hooked on phonics.
You are correct.75%, not 70%.Thank you for correcting that.
Yes, of 2,099 doctors, not of all ER visits. You’re welcome Mr. Magoo.
People getting healthcare without going bankrupt is a bad thing apparently
Well, that would explain what’s happening in Texas, FL, SC, MS and AL.
Increasing and expanding Medicaid rolls WILL bankrupt states.
Make cheap printers for Wallmart that’ll crap out on the 2nd use.
Makes you wonder why they even bothered to sell ink cartridges.
You can get a whole new printer for what it costs for new cartridges.
That’s where the money is. Why innovate and make good products when you can sell shitty products and ludicrously expensive replacement cartridges?
And Hillary can do for The US of A what she did for the Clinton Foundation.
Well, goddamn, it’s 10:40. Either GT had a stroke or found work.
pulling a double shift at the drive thru
If those are the two possibilities I think I can narrow it down to one.
The Republican Clown Car has been put in drive.
Don’t be silly, the only gear that car has is reverse.
That’s why they keep saying they want to take their country back
Yep…before you socialists turn it into Baltimore and Ferguson.
That’s right. The War on Drugs, Militarization of the police, the Southern Strategy, exit of industry…Simplistic and reductionistic explanations like “it was the socialists fault”is just a short step away from when you all answered everything “because 9/11”.
See…a liberal,American hating socialist like you loves drugs and hates the police..the more perversion of our laws and culture the better,right?
Seems I don’t need to answer because you already know everything about me. I’m sure there’s no stereotyping involved, just that you have advanced, superhuman cognitive skills. BTW, you need to read the paper a little more closely about the 70% thing
75% of doctors are seeing increases in ER visits…what is so hard to understand about that? This all started when Obamacare was implemented.We were told when we expanded Medicaid no more ER visits would be needed.
47% see slight increases. Slight means it could be a result of a LOT of things, to include the doctor relying on memory rather than data. And no, it was never stated that “no more ER visits would be needed” Isn’t i time for you to watch Papa Bear, or do you just have Faux News running all the time in the background just so you don’t miss an “alert”
Strike one: she couldn’t beat Boxer for a senate seat. Strike two, three and four: she defended McCain’s selection of Palin as a running mate.
Palin was the choice that they gave me.
Palin was the choice that they gave me.
Fiorina would make a great VP with Walker, Rand or Cruz. Balance the ticket and get a woman to go opposite Hillary. A lot of bases covered.
corporate mouthpiece stooge robotic talking points sock puppet. GOP playbook: herman cain to obama= fiorina to hitlary also, kind of lke the business republican’s version of a rick santorum type of plastic shameless self promoter. translation:TOTALLY FAKE CANDIDAcY. maybe she can get a job massaging jeb bush’s c()ck or feet, whcihever he prefers.
What’s her position on the TPP and fast-track? LOL, just kidding.
Wow…did yall hear Dr. Carson….can’t wait to see how FITS tries to attack Carson…while caiming he “Likes’ Carson…Carson is great in what he said…
Wow! Golly, I can’t wait for Carson to be our next prez…LMAO!
Would you choose him or Hillary?
True, Carson has always been great and is very good at both articulating conservatism and exposing liberal myths. You, however, are the exact opposite. You are an inarticulate menace who does nothing more than confirm the caricaturized myths that liberals have about conservatives.
Good thing I’m not the one running office, then, you IGNORANT F*#k….
That said: you are a f*#king Democrat enabler, who cringes, backpedals and starts kissing @$$…the minute some [email protected]$$ bully-liberal calls you bigot, racist, homophobe…and any other name they can use to intimidate, the weak-minded, guilty and milquetoast, lily whites…who have lived under Daddy’s checkbook so long…you know NOTHING except what you are told by the idiots and liars who control you……..
Really? You must have forgotten that it was Carson who was most recently the one being called a bigoted homophobe. You see me calling him an ineffective menace? No, because it’s actually a badge of honor to be called that by liberals. As usual, you have completely missed the point and shown yourself to be the idiot and menace you are. An enabler is someone who thinks conservatives should tone down the message in a way that avoids looking like your “racist”, “sexist”, “bigot”, or “homophobe”. That’s not what I’m talking about and you know it. I’ve explained it to you probably ten times now and you keep coming back with the same nonsense about being “soft” on liberals and “enabler”. Calling you out for your liberal tactics and methodologies, all the while proclaiming to hate liberals is all there is to it. It simply means you are an ineffective menace whose only purpose is to make a mockery of yourself.
STFU…All you do is make it more difficult for decent, working and responsible people – like Dr. Carson – to gain any ground in this country…Go caucus w/ the @$$ you kiss…
We’ve gotten through the worst of it…we don’t need carping sycophants – like you – trying to jump in with us, after the liberals proved to be the F*#king Disaster I said they are….
You shilled for them…now go back where you belong…you gutless pacifier…
You need to read what I wrote again, you idiot. The cause of conservatism is hurt by Ed Schultz-like bloviators like you. I don’t sell myself away for liberal tactics like you do. That gets people like Jeb Bush elected, not Carson
You are indirectly shilling for liberal Republicans by acting like a menace who is supposedly “conservative”. You don’t advance any type of philosophy, just a bunch of menacing attacks. It would be one thing if you were attacked for your conservatism, but you’re not. You are attacked for being a deranged and profane menace, nothing else. Then when you get attacked, you exclaim yourself to be a martyr for the positions you take, even you don’t ever actually expound any “positions”. You then become nothing more than a walking, menacing contradiction. Find a new hobby. You are a loser at this one.
Who did (is doing) a better job at president: ‘W’ or Obama?
Obama for the win!! Whoo Hoo!,
Jeb Bush is not a conservative. W. was at least a quasi-conservative. Not sure what your point is anyways. We have a choice at this point. We are not locked into a liberal candidate, but apparently you don’t care if that’s what we have. You think that as long as Obama is out, all will be well. No doubt Obama leaving office will be a positive, but nothing is going to get meaningfully better until we have a real conservative in the WH.
I KNEW IT!!!!….You just defined yourself. You CANNOT Directly answer the question.
Be it unemployment, energy management, national security, race relations, patriotism, taxes, American pride, justice, religious freedom, equal rights, spending, courts …W was DEMONSTRABLY better, BY FAR…And Obama is about as BAD as anyone can EVER be at president…
But if a conceding, weak-spined moderate, like you, says that (provided you even believe it) …the people you are trying to placate will slap you so F*#king hard, it will shatter your teeth…And you live in mortal fear of rejection by pop culture idiots….
You are WORTHLESS. You stand for nothing, except begging to be accepted by corrupt, evil and failed people…
If the GOP does not FLUSH you with the same force w/ which we MUST flush the dangerous Democrat Party…our country will continue to swirl down the toilet….that people like have us swirling in…
You didn’t really ask a question. You tried to sneak George W into the conversation when he was never part of the discussion. You can’t directly refute the point that you are nothing more than a profane menace who doesn’t care if liberals get elected. If Satan is in office and the best replacement we have is Judas, what good in the long run will that do, especially when we have options that will actually get us somewhere. You are the “conceding, weak-spined moderate” here, and the fact that you want to pin that on me just shows the problem in arguing with you. You can’t stay on topic to save your life. You are the one who stands for nothing because all you do is go on deranged rants about vague generalities. You are never specific about anything. If you think Jeb is going to allow this country to reach its full potential, then argue that case. I don’t care that he will be better than Obama. I don’t care about simply being “better” than what Obama has made us. Like I said, if you want Jeb and think he will do what needs to be done to tear down the destruction liberalism has wrought, then argue that case. Otherwise, save your diatribes for your liberal contrarians on here.
Who is/was a better president Obama or ‘W’???
Obama has been LIGHT YEARS better!
Come on, you idiot, what about anything I’ve said makes you think my answer would actually be Obama? You’re at least not being such a menace in asking but it’s still a pointless question. W is not in this discussion, but the fact that you think you need to ask me this question shows you don’t care about advancing conservatism, only in being personally validated. Nothing I’ve ever should give you the necessity to ask. How about you make your case for Jeb? And, go….
You sure do ‘hem’ and ‘haw’ a lot…and still have not said ‘W’ was Hands-down, no questions asked. BETTER than Obama in EVERY conceivable way…
An Obama-ite – or a moderate – (like you) would rather die than disavow a Black Democrat god…and give “W” the credit he deserves.
The media has told you EVERYTHING but the truth…and you don’t have the sense, or the guts, to admit W was BETTER…and Obama is THE worst since Carter…
‘W’ was Hands-down, no questions asked. BETTER than Obama in EVERY conceivable way. Your reading comprehension sucks out loud if you can’t gather that from my previous post. Now that we’ve gotten the pointless part out of the way:
You’re the one in favor of Jeb Bush and yet I’m the moderate??? LMAO!!! You’re the one really hemming and hawing here. You can’t stay on the original point to begin with and now we’re down to a nonsensical debate about whether Obama or W was/is the better president. Trust me, old man, I can do a far better job of making a real historical case for W over Obama in any debating forum. You and your schtick wouldn’t know how to make a case to a rational observer because all you do is traffic in rhetoric that liberals typically use, with your profane and deranged diatribes. Your idiotic point of presuming I “would rather die than disavow a Black Democrat god” is case in point, particularly in light of the fact that I’ve proven myself to be the true conservative while you’re nothing more than a poser.
You are a ‘true conservative’? LMAO!!! So said Boz/Buz-until we found his love of socialism-in his own words.
Let me know when you find my “love of socialism”, okay? You must be another conservative poser. You know who the enemy is, but you don’t have any rational solutions to combat them or understand that it has to be the right Republican to reverse the damage. People like you are the reason why we’ll never be able to lower the corporate tax rate or institute a flat tax or actually defeat Islamic-fascism. I guess as long as you’re okay with mediocrity.
You worry way too much about me. Even if you ever scored a point against me…it will not change who, and what, you are…or raise your level of intellect….
This is always your go-to response when you realize you’ve been owned. First, you throw a little “even if” clause in there to try and distance yourself from the fact that you didn’t make one relevant point, not to mention the fact that I answered you straight up despite the fact that it was nothing more than a subject changing question. Second, you try to throw off your losing argument by exclaiming that I am “worried” about you. Nothing but a “hem” and a “haw” there, if you ask me. Even if I was “worried” about you, does that mean you are right and I am wrong? Come on, old man, you can’t come up with a better diversion than that? That’s way too easy to see through. Not only that, but it’s even before your more predictable “who and what you are” clap trap. I’ll just take it all as admission of defeat. Enjoy mediocrity with Jeb.
Like I said: you worry about me too much. This site is about politics…not attacking me, and the people you hate….which is about the only thing any of you ever really offer…
Right, because you NEVER attack anybody.
What you call an “attack” on my part is nothing more than citing your propensity for juvenile behavior typically reserved for liberals. Only a thin skinned liberal would call anything I’ve said an “attack” If you want to borrow from the liberals’ playbook, then so be it, but don’t pretend to hate them when you do. Not that you care, because this response is simply another one of your obfuscations. Maybe you should quit “worrying” so much about FITS if you want to be consistent. It’s just a little blog with no influence on the political landscape, yet you’re on it 24/7.
Daniel Liberal Boome gives himself away as an Alinski type by calling you a ‘menace’ for merely expressing your opinion.
I think it’s Syn Twist…under the impression that he/she can talk others into being McCain moderates – and abandon Conservatism- as the best route (regardless of how many times it has failed)….then accuse the party with which he/she is arguing…of being a moderate…
FITS does EXACTLY the same thing…
The only one who has admitted the possibility of needing to abandon “conservatism” in order to defeat the Democrats is you. You have already admitted that you are okay with Jeb.
I figured that when when Syn Twist was defending the rioters in Baltimore last Monday and comparing them to Washington, Jefferson etc…
Yeah and let me know when you see me say anything remotely like that, too. Which will be never. Want to specify anything you have heard me say thus far that could even be slightly construed as liberal?
Wrong. If that were the case, everybody would be a menace. GT is a menace because he does nothing but post deranged and profane diatribes that contain no substance. That’s typical of liberals, yet he claims to hate liberals.
YOU and your redneck friends posted on Nikki Haley’s FB page when the president came to town. You don’t get to have it both ways, you hypocrite. You cannot be a selective racist. Dr. Carson, while he has no chance and shouldn’t turn anyone down, does not want your support. He doesn’t need a bigot fighting his cause. So zip it.
Carson scares the H#!! out of little race-hate punks like you…The man has more integrity in his fingernails that the WHOLE Democrat Party…
That said: Liberal IS the party for Racism…and if you LOSE any of the racist Black vote you now exploit for your greed…..your @$$ is Cooked…and w/ the miserable economy…Carson could F*#k you up…[email protected]$$…LMAO…and you know it…
When you lose power…you’ll squeal like the effeminate little sissy you are….And I will LMAO….
Carly Fiornication? Is that that woman from the TV show with the X-Files guy?
another freakin’ idiot….
