FORMER EXECUTIVE SAYS GOVERNOR SOUNDED “WRONG NOTE” IN SPEECH
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina didn’t follow the lead of conservative commentator Ann Coulter and call anyone a “bimbo.” However she did join the chorus of opposition to South Carolina governor Nikki Haley – who thrust herself on the national stage this week by attempting to brand critics of the GOP establishment as angry white men who are basically one step away from homicidal madness.
Fiorina said Haley struck the “wrong note” with her remarks … which were offered in response to U.S. president Barack Obama‘s final State of the Union address.
“Americans are angry and they’re frustrated and they’re fed up and they’re afraid,” Fiorina told Breitbart News. “That anger and frustration is real.”
So … does that mean she supports the “siren call of the angriest voice” (a.k.a. GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump)?
“President Obama lectures us about it. Donald Trump bamboozles us. Hillary Clinton says whatever she has to say to gain the power she craves,” Fiorina added, speaking to Breitbart’s Alex Swoyer. “What we need is a solution to our anger, our frustration and our fear. That’s why I’m running for president because I think I offer the leadership that will solve these problems. We have to take our country back. We need to restore our citizen government. We have to cut our government down to size. We got to put people back to work and we need to keep this nation safe.”
Fiorina’s critics contended she’s in direct competition with Haley for consideration as a possible vice-presidential selection – and that’s what motivated her remarks.
“She’s jealous,” one South Carolina activist who supports Haley told us.
Cat-fights all over the place this week!
Imagine that politicians criticizing politicians.
The story goes that around 1915 in the heat
of a debate Congressman Johnson of Indiana called an Illinois representative a jackass. The expression was
unparliamentary, and in retraction Johnson said:
“While I withdraw the unfortunate word, Mr. Speaker, I must insist that the gentleman from Illinois is out of order.”
“How am I out of order?” yelled the man from Illinois.
“Probably a veterinary surgeon could tell you,” answered Johnson, and that was parliamentary enough to stay on the record.
While a jackass and a donkey are different they are closely related…one does produce the other, was he a democrat? :)
I don’t know — that’s one from a collection of 10,000 items in a huge book published in 1938 (and which I treasure) that was left to me.
What I wouldn’t give for a picture of your bookshelves.
bookshelves … and boxes and plastic tubs and old desk drawers jammed with books, pamphlets, joke pages from Playboy & Thunder Roads magazines, Bloom County, Loser Palooza ( Bucky Katt & Satchel Pooch) and so on and on ….
The neat thing is that when one of you guys have a comment that gives me a flash of an item I may not have seen for years and I start digging it out, not always successfully. And I try to save humor you guys post and give credit when I do post them here.
This is one way I’m preventing any early onslaught of dementia, and typing in new ones on the PC keeps me flexible and alert. Fitsnews is free therapy! …. Thanks Guys!
Shifty, please accept my gratitude not just for the stories or the jokes over the years, but most importantly the smiles. Your presence in the comment section is always positive and joyful, which is rather rare on the internet. It’s good to know to know that I’ve reciprocated in some way. Cheers!
Many thanks, and I enjoy sharing those items. You guys drop in a lot of funny comments which give me the chuckles. Sometimes I’ll drop in one to break up a dog-fight!
One thing I’m going to work on this year is to publish little books from my collections saved on my PC. The problem will be that not every one of my family members has the same sense of humor so I’ll have to edit each book v-e-r-y .. c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y ,,,!!
A Jack Ass is a male donkey. Same animal, different name.
Did you miss the smile tomstickler?
Carly is not a politician. She is an accomplished business woman with a track record of saving a major company from going down the tubes. She would make a great VP or Sec. of State. The other one, not so much.
Once you throw your hat into the ring you become a politician, be you a business woman, business man or doctor.
BTW this is the second time Carly is seeking votes for public office. I will give you she’s an outsider and that is a good thing.
She wrecked Lucent. Compac and HP.
Goat-face wasn’t fired for being successful.
She is NOT jealous, cause there’s nothing to be jealous of.
Poor,poor,poor Queen Namrata….
Bless her heart……………
Karma’s a bitch ain’t it Queen Namrata??? (you should know better; being an Indian and all…)
“We have to take our country back.” What exactly does that mean?
I means what dillusional nostalga types who think the 1950’s were the ideal lifestyle want it to mean………..
As much as I enjoy watching my DVD’s of “Leave it To Beaver” it really wasn’t all that idealic. Then again, I also treasure my DVD collection of the HBO’s “Arli$$” too..( sure wish they would offer the entire series and not just one year….)
But since the mantra for the forsaken seems to be “taking our country back”; how about bringing back 1967 – 1974???? (just leave out Vietnam, assassinations, gas shortages/recession, etc.)
Watergate, burning cities, stagflation.
Nixon, Johnson, and Ford……..
Dog whistle used through out our history that blames immigrants and minorities for whatever problems the country may be experiencing.
It means to put a stop to giving away our tax money to illegal aliens. To cut government handouts to those who don’t need them. To close the borders like it used to be. And to give opportunity to those willing to work hard by lowering taxes like they used to be.
When the heck was the border ever closed? Taxes are at a 60 year low. So unless you were alive before WWII……..
Mom lives in a Fox induced delusion. She wants to go back to the good old days, that she is sure existed because Fox told her they did. They just neglected to say when those good old days actually existed.
From special interests, career politicians, rabid globalism, debtor nation policies, lawlessness, The State, … to restore the rule of law, and citizen government, by the people, for the people….
debtor nation policies – Forget it unless you bite the bullet and make significant cuts in Defense, Medicare/Medicaid/obamacare and Social Security. All I heard at the debate last night was spending more money on the military. In fact I didn’t hear anything that would solve our debt problem.
At least Nikki still has her own face.
Can you even begin to imagine NIMRATA if they stretched her face as tight as Dolly Parton. The corners of her mouth now reach from ear lobe to ear lobe. Poor NIMRATA’s schnooze would look like a back hoe arm!
From what I’m seeing she still has both of them.

And her own job.
Damn right! Just like Trump said, I’m angry and frustrated as HELL and have every right to be!
The Country is in the tank. POTUS and Haley are both disasters.
Haley has sold out this State numerous times and again on the illegal immigration issue, same as Obama!
Trump supporters are really being taken for a ride. I don’t care what kind of excuses he has handed out for his business decisions – he is not for the working man. All this rhetoric about illegals taking jobs, while he has been importing foreigners in to do America jobs as back as 2000. The merchandise he and his CURRENT imported wife have sold over the years are all made in China, Mexico and other parts of Asia. If he was such a true believer of America’s greatness he could have had his wares made in the US. It is mind boggling that anyone would just overlook his running 4 companies into bankruptcy. Would you want someone with that past track record handling your money or running your company? He incurs very little personal loss, if any, when he has crashed a company – but employees, vendors, contractors can’t say the same thing. Trump is no friend of the average working person in this country.
Well, the status-quo, Establishment Republicans have certainly been no friend of the average working person, citizen, and taxpayer of this country. In fact, if one sits back and analyzes what they have been doing to us for the last fifty or so years, they begin to look like our avowed mortal enemy.
C/C Great statement. I was going to attempt to make it but you did an excellent job. All the rest are political hacks that owe their souls to other political hacks. TRUMP 2016.
Thank You, Rogue! I really hope he gets the nomination and the Presidency.
nothing better than a good catfight
And old draft dodger Ted “NO NUTS” Nugent even has a song for it!
(heh – heh) — this is Mr. Disco here!
In my dotage,I don’t mind disco.It’s all good
will take a few cd’s while I cruise the mountain this afternoon – will bring back many fond memories ….
Times sure have changed.
get it while you can
More than the times have changed there, mi amigo! ;-)
Youtube has a collection of catfights from those teenager drive-in movies…
HALEY Hated by anyone with a dime’s worth of common sense.
Screw the election! Just put Fiorina and Haley against Hilary for a priceless catfight!!
If Nikki is picked as a running mate, I’ll vote for none of the above. She isn’t presidential material and actually not governor material either-lot of slick willy politics going on,
Nobody needs to be jealous of Haley
Right…Carly is “jealous” of terminally ambitious and shallow Nikki Haley—who arrogantly rips down patriots’ flag WITHOUT your vote
And Nikki’s VP chances are going down because neither Carly NOR the other GOP (white men) candidates want a back-stabbin goat !!!
