Carly Fiorina: An Impressive Record of Disastrous Results
She can claim whatever she wants, but the facts are the facts and like a giant creeping shadow, they cast a pall of disingenuousness over her.
September 26, 2001 while still CEO of Hewlett-Packard, Fiorina gave a speech entitled: “Technology, Business, and Our Way of Life: What’s Next?” As far as CEO speeches go, it was consistent with the rudimentary oratorical blandness most CEOs are known for. It was the end of her speech that engendered my disdain for her that continues until today.
For those who attended public schools when teachers could actually add and subtract, and expected same of their students, September 26, 2001 was 15 days after 9/11.
Need I remind you that 9/11 represented the greatest terrorist planned and executed attack on the American people on American soil in history. With ashes still smoldering and American children trying to reconcile the loss of one or even both parents; with American families holding out hope that their loved ones’ remains would be found – Fiorina elected to end her speech extolling the virtues and accomplishments Muslims had made to the world. She referred to Islam as the greatest civilization in the world.
That speech may have been 14 years ago but I challenge Fiorina to ask the children who lost their parents in that murderous act of Muslim barbarism if it seems like that was a long time ago to them.
America is tired of politicians and politically correct hacks singing the praises of Islam. Islam is a cult whose leaders are no different than rabid murderers like Charles Manson or Jim Jones of the Peoples Temple massacre in Jonestown, Guyana.
It matters to me, as it should to all voters, that she has not apologized for her appalling lack of sensitivity for American loss of life, she displayed in that speech. I believe Americans are tired of being told Muslims are nice people who love everyone and that it is only a few bad ones who are spoiling it for them all. Islam has contributed little to civilization save rape, looting, human bondage, sexual slave trading, murder, mayhem, and terrorism since the creation of their satanic figurehead Mohammad.
I also take exception with her position on abortion. Abortion is the sanctioned murder of the most helpless and innocent human beings on earth. Masking one’s support for abortion as being limited to instances of rape, incest, and threat to life of the mother is a canard that allows a person to support murder with clear conscience. Mother Teresa said: “Abortion teaches a woman to kill in order to handle her problem.”
America doesn’t need another politician or politician “wannabe” in a position of power. We have had eight years of the revocation of traditional values complete with Obama turning America’s military into a taxpayer supporter Club-Med “bathhouse” for homosexuals.
Fiorina’s management style as CEO of Hewlett-Packard was a continuation of the skills she displayed while at Bell Labs. The common consensus is that she was an out-of-touch isolated, chauffeured, private jet travelling, run the company into the ground CEO – who then escaped with an eight-figure golden parachute while the former employees struggled to find jobs.
Referencing Bell Labs, Michael Rapaport wrote: “What she left behind at Lucent/Bell Labs was a smoking ruin of what had been the world’s most important and productive research lab.” (‘The Job Killing Touch’: How Carly Fiorina Wrecked Hewlett-Packard and the Bell Labs, and Set American Science Back By Decades; 9/10/2010)
Julie Bort writing for businessinsider.com said: “[Fiorina’s] hoping to win votes based on her achievements in the world of business. There’s only one problem with that: her biggest achievement, becoming the first woman to run Hewlett-Packard, is widely regarded as a disaster.” (Ex-HP CEO Carly Fiorina is Planning To Run For President Based On Her Business Experience: Here’s Why That’s A Bad Idea; 3/30/2015)
We’ve had seven years of an economy and job killing machine named Obama. We do not need a person with a documented track record of those abilities to occupy the Oval Office again.
Fiorina has unfathomably been able to con her way into key executive positions leaving a legacy of disastrous results. America needs the next president to understand more about the economy and job creation than how to successfully destroy both.
Being the president of the United States isn’t a ceremonial position one seeks to pad their resume and future earning power. We applaud Fiorina’s sterling record of failure in corporate America (sarcasm intended), and we are confident of her ability to do the same to America. Which is precisely why we cannot elect her.
