GOP CANDIDATE: FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE
|| By FITSNEWS || Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina – the only woman currently seeking the “Republican” presidential nomination – was not impressed by the first stop on presumed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton‘s “glasnost” tour.
Fiorina called Clinton’s big interview with CNN “stunning … and yet completely unsurprising.”
“Hillary Clinton managed not to answer any substantive questions during that interview,” Fiorina said. “And she wasn’t even asked about her track record as Secretary of State.”
That’s true …
After months of holding the press at bay (literally), Clinton’s first real foray into the marketplace of ideas wasn’t exactly a shining moment for the candidate – or the fourth estate that’s supposed to be covering her.
According to Breitbart’s John Nolte, Clinton’s interview with CNN’s Brianna Keilar “came off as something scripted between the left-wing cable news network and the Clinton campaign.”
“Keilar asked some of the right questions but then allowed Hillary to answer them with soundbites, platitudes, and half-truths,” Nolte wrote. “There were no follow ups, no digging into the details, and not a single question Hillary could not have expected, planned for, and rehearsed the answer for.
The whole thing, in Nolte’s opinion, was “a scripted effort at political rehabilitation, not the tense, difficult, precise, unrelenting interview it should have been.”
Fiorina is having none of that …
“If we want to win back the White House in 2016, we need a Republican nominee who won’t be afraid to hold Hillary accountable – who will ask her about Benghazi, who will ask her about her conflicts of interest while her family accepted money from countries with business before her, who will ask her why she thought a gimmicky red reset button would dissuade the ambitions of someone like Vladmir Putin,” Fiorina said.
Fiorina has been a consistent critic of Clinton ever since she jumped into the presidential race – and we hope she continues to bring the heat.
Clearly the media isn’t going to …
