CANDIDATE “UNCOMFORTABLE” WITH CRONY CAPITALIST TRADE DEAL …
|| By FITSNEWS || Newly minted GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina has passed her first free market hurdle … opposing a crony capitalist deal masquerading as “free trade.”
In an interview with radio host Laura Ingraham this week, Fiorina said she supported free and fair trade – but opposed giving the administration of Barack Obama the authority to bypass Congress in negotiating and implementing a new Asian trade deal.
“I’m uncomfortable with this deal and giving him trade authority,” Fiorina told Ingraham. “I know from personal experience that the Chinese have not lived up to their agreements when they entered the WTO. In other words, partners can cheat on these deals, and we have evidence of partners cheating on these deals.”
Fiorina joined fellow GOP presidential contenders Mike Huckabee (HERE) and Donald Trump (HERE) in opposing this deal – which would put U.S. workers at a severe competitive disadvantage (in more ways than one).
Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal – another name mentioned as a possible 2016 “Republican” candidate – is also opposed.
“This is an extremely complicated deal, a multilateral deal with a lot of details that we don’t know about,” Fiorina said. “And Obama and his administration has demonstrated their inability to negotiate a good deal. And so look, I think the devil’s in the details, and we better understand what these details are before we just assume it’s a good deal.”
Amen to that … in fact the secrecy surrounding this deal is one reason why we’ve consistently said the U.S. Congress should not surrender its vital investigatory and oversight role in conducting and implementing trade agreements.
Rick Manning of Americans for Limited Government (ALG) – the group which has been leading the fight against “Obamatrade” – praised Fiorina’s decision.
“Carly Fiorina’s questioning the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal is a big deal,” Manning said. “Joining Bobby Jindal, Mike Huckabee, and Donald Trump in opposition to granting trade promotion authority to President Obama to negotiate the deal now nationalizes the debate. Fiorina’s experience as a multinational corporation CEO who has dealt with countries who cheat on trade makes her voice particularly important as Congress considers fast track.”
“Obamatrade” is a two-part deal. The first part is “trade promotion authority” (TPA) – or “Fast Track” – which refers to the ability of Obama to unilaterally write and enforce the second part of the deal. That’s the so-called “Trans-Pacific Parternship” (TPP) – a massive trade deal with Pacific Rim nations.
The former is basically a blank check to the Obama administration to impose the latter – a special interest, crony capitalist bonanza that would benefit liberal Hollywood elites and wealthy bailout recipients on Wall Street at the expense of U.S. workers.
Obamatrade is bad for America (see HERE and HERE) – and it’s especially bad for South Carolina (HERE and HERE). That’s why we’ve called on the Palmetto State’s “conservative” congressional delegation to oppose it – joining those responsible members of the U.S. Congress who have already taken a stand.
We’ve also exposed the lies and hypocrisy of those slavishly serving the special interests in support of this proposal …

We’re glad to see Fiorina oppose Obamatrade. And Manning is correct: Her private sector perspective matters in this debate.
She has nice legs.
Yeah but dust comes out her pussy it has been so long since she was laid.
I won’t go there.
The problem w/ FITS..he’s all over the road so much…w/ no true core of values…there is no telling where he is on an issue….or a candidate…
So you can’t put any credibility into anything FITS posts…
Fits is right on the issue- as usual,wrong reason. Fits doesn’t want congress to give up it’s ‘authority’ here but seems fine with the executive branch bypassing congress on the issues of immigration and gay marriage?
Opposition to this is based on not trusting Obama as the pResident to do what is right for America.Why won’t Fits or anyone else just say it?
Liberal-Tarians are EXTREMELY selfish, self-serving and self -centered….
They are very authoritarian, if not totalitarian, in their view of government…
They are all for the people, if the people want what best serves them…if not, F*#k the people…it’s why they’ll always be a single-digit gaggle of kooks and clowns…
Speaking of you having no credibility. Jimmy Garoppolo is about to become the next Gerry Ford. You are too stupid to get that reference, so ask a friend if you have one. You jumped on another cause and lost again. Kraft’s a Democrat, Brady’s getting suspended…was making believe you are Patriots fan worth it? Brady is out there babbling and stumbling over his words like Rick Perry. He might as well say “I am not a crook.” Anyway, congrats on being just like Rev. Al. How about you go “blog” about it? HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Hillary is out there babbling and stumbling over his words like Muslim Obama without a teleprompter. She might as well say “I am not a crook.”
You really this fucking dumb?
Bet you voted for McCain/Palin, which is hilarious as we all know what happens when Palin’s teleprompter breaks.
Shut the fuck up, tin foil hat. You’re as dumb as the day is long for kissing GT’s ass.
You’re not even worth reading…you’re so F*#king inept at legitimacy…
But you read it and know I am right. But I must apologize, as now I know were you got your Patriots rant from…Rush. So it’s him who’s a nut and you are just his lemming. Got it.
“Kooky and inept at legitimacy.” Wasn’t that the motto for your “blog”? LMAO. Fail much?
It’s simple, we need another war. Money is in need for the rich. Elect a republican, make war, there has to be somewhere to attack.
I would love to see a debate between Carly and Hillary.
See above what? You must be sorting differently as is evident by your “Magnificent loser” remark. It wouldn’t be about Hillary wasting time, with Hillary it’s all about playing politics and covering her ass.
BTW I’m not a big Carly supporter, just would like to see a debate between the two women.
totally right (HERE) and also factually unimpeachable(HERE) and completely non-partisan as well (HERE) (HERE and (HERE).
Unfair and imbalanced (HERE) (HERE and (HERE).
Carly was the to Failed executive of HP, who cut 30k jobs, and cost company billions. Oh, also a deadbeat candidate, who failed for two years to pay her staff. And as Carly touts herself as a technology savvy woman, will just mention she forgot to register her domain. Fortunately, someone else, didn’t. Put her name in and add dot org.
Hillary won’t waste her time. Carly’s resume is lose billions, cut 30k jobs and get canned. Then run for office, fail, and stiff campaign workers. No one would bother debating such a Magnificent loser.
