|| By FITSNEWS || We’ve been noting for weeks that the most effective “Republican” critic of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

Apparently Clinton’s people have figured this out, too … and have dispatched one of the scandal-scarred politicians’ top allies to bash Fiorina, who has emerged as a frontrunner in the GOP vice presidential discussion (along with South Carolina governor Nikki Haley).

The Clinton ally – liberal Yale professor Jeffery Sonnenfeld – has been ramping up the rhetoric against Fiorina, comparing her to the captain of the ill-fated cruise ship Costa Concordia (whose negligence resulted in 32 deaths).

Sonnenfeld is a long-time “FOB” – or “Friend of Bill,” a reference to the political associates of former U.S. president Bill Clinton.

His latest barb?  Equating Fiorina with terrorists of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“I believe that if you’re not some ISIS mass murderer, you’re probably entitled to a second beginning,” Sonnenfeld told IBD this week, referring to Fiorina’s controversial tenure at HP. “But she’s done nothing to (deserve) that redemption, other than wanting to be commander in chief.”

Wait … let’s see if we’ve got this straight: The only people not entitled to redemption are ISIS mass murderers and … Carly Fiorina?

Wow …

A Fiorina aide referred to Sonnenfeld’s comment as “way below the belt.”  And she’s right.  But there’s no denying Fiorina’s people see attacks like this as validation of their core message.

“Hillary’s biggest supporters know that Carly is Hillary’s fiercest and most effective critic,” the aide noted.

Hence the over-the-top blowback …

Fiorina definitely has some questions to answer regarding her tenure as CEO of HP, and we’re not 100 percent sure her effectiveness as a Clinton critic translates into presidential (or even vice presidential) timber.  But one thing is clear: She’s getting to the Clintons.

Dead blog is still dead.

Funny fact, one of the last posts he wrote was not to worry about a Jeb Bush nomination. If Trump gets dumped, he might want to worry again.

I’m like you. I hate GT stopped that Blog. It was GREAT. It was twice as good as the liberal Bullshit on here. I often think of T’s website chronicle of the Sanford confesion 5-yr-anniversary. That was BRILLIANT. I heard that’s where Barton Swaim got the idea to do his book. I hope Swaim writes as well – and is as creative -as Big T. (tall order.)

But from what I understand Big T gets paid well to contribute elsewhere, where bigger – more influential -minds read what he produces. And that’s as it should be.

Big T (or GT) is way over the head of most of the bottom-feeder level (low intellect) liberals on here, like you. This is a poor-man’s (or an ignorant and backward politicos) type site.

GT could street fight, or he can beat you at intellectual gymnastics. That’s rare. Either way, I miss seeing him kick the shit out of you…and it’s obvious you’re obsessed with it, too. He really made you look like a vapid and ignorant fuck. That must suck for you. (:

To continue with Jeffery Sonnenfeld’s nautical metaphor, the Clinton Campaign has sailed upon the rocks and is floundering of her own accord. They will do anything at this point to try to divert attention from the desperation they are encountering.
The current CEO of Hewlett Packard, Meg Whitman is just completing a restructuring and re-alignment that will result in HP shedding another 55,000 jobs. HP is a very diverse company that has spent decades trying to adapt in an industry that is constantly changing. To stay competitive they will have to adapt to changing products and changing markets. Fiorina was doing what was necessary to keep HP successful.

Nothing unusual about the markets changing and companies changing.
Hillary is looking more and more unacceptable to her base as time passes. She needs to find something to keep the attention off her legal challenges, she will not be successful.

Excellent post. Can you imagine Hillary in jeans? :)

Lumpy and bulgy jeans….
Nahhh, I will pass.

Fiorina has a pretty good ass for a 60 year old women.

Doesn’t take much to bash Fiorina. She was such a bad CEO, HP paid her 21 million dollars to go away and never come back.

That ass right there is why Palin would be a good choice for Trump’s VP candidate. Coz everybody knows she looks just as good coming as she does going.

Sorry. The whole race is just that shallow and stupid.
