Keep your eye on Carly Fiorina

By Tom Quiner

I just listened to Carly Fiorina’s speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit last month. It is simply excellent.

The twenty-two minute speech is worth hearing. Here are a few quotes:

“We [conservatives] know that work brings dignity; and family brings purpose; and faith brings meaning to our lives. We know.”

“Like Hillary Clinton, I too have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe. But unlike her, I’ve actually accomplished something. You see, Mrs. Clinton, flying is not an accomplishment, it is an activity.”

“I have met Vladimir Putin, and I know that it takes far more than a gimmicky reset button to halt his ambition. Having done business in over 80 countries, having served as the chairman of the  external advisory board of the Central Intelligence Agency for several years, I know that China, North Korea, and Russia are state sponsors of cyber warfare, I know that China has a strategy to steal our intellectual property. I know Bibi Netanyahu. I know that when he warns us that Iran is a threat to our nation and to his own, that we must listen.”

“We have everything we need to make this time the greatest time in American history.”

I’ve never seen a richer pool of Republican talent than this crop of potential candidates. Carly Fiorini is worth watching.

    As long as we can avoid the bland crop of Christie and Bush and Graham. Let’s get a true conservative, like Paul, Carson, Cruz, Walker, etc.

      I agree with you in principle.

    Reblogged this on kingmartini001 and commented:
    A nation doe not need a leader who is also confused like the masses, we need leaders who have carefully thought out how to solve the crisis of his people
