Carly Fiorina Hiring for Presidential Campaign

December 18, 2014 Carly Fiorina is laying the groundwork for what one ally says is an “imminent” presidential campaign—one that could launch as early as next month.

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO, who raised her political profile with a failed run against Sen. Barbara Boxer of California in 2010, has frequently been mentioned as a long-shot contender to seek the Republican presidential nomination. The speculation is driven by equal parts novelty and activity: Fiorina, who paid several high-profile visits to early-nominating states in 2014, acknowledged that she would likely be the only woman in the GOP field.

“Look, I think it would be great if we had female candidates—or candidate,” Fiorina told National Journal earlier this year.

Fiorina is now poised to become that candidate. According to three sources with direct knowledge of the situation, she has authorized members of her inner circle to seek out and interview candidates for two key positions on her presidential campaign: political director and communications director. Notably, the sources said, her associates are aiming to fill both positions with women.

Which leads us to once again play the greatest political ad of all time:

The Barrel Scrapes Itself

The National Journal speculates that iCarly “Fire ‘Em All Fiorina might be positioning herself to enter the 2016 Goat Rodeo:

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO and 2010 Senate candidate is hitting the campaign trail in the lead-up to Election Day for her new super PAC, teaching activists and politicians how to talk to female voters—and building herself a grassroots base in a half-dozen electorally important states in the process.

While her efforts are focused on helping the GOP win control of the Senate in November, political strategists say Fiorina is doing all the right things to prep for a 2016 bid. And the message she’s touting is a preview of the kind of role she could play, if she runs.

In case anyone has forgotten her doomed 2010 Senate Campaign (which was a very good year for the Republicans):

Get well, Fire’em All Fiorina

California GOP Senate challenger Carly Fiorina was sidelined Tuesday from the campaign trail in the final week of a close race to be treated for an infection associated with her reconstructive surgery after breast cancer.

The former Hewlett-Packard Co. chief executive was admitted to a Los Angeles-area hospital, forcing her to cancel campaign appearances in Riverside and Coachella just as polls suggested she was starting to gain momentum in her race against Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer.
According to Deborah Bowker, the campaign’s chief of staff, Fiorina was being treated with antibiotics.

I despise iCarly, I loathe her.

That said, I never wish ill on anyone (unlike Wingnuttia, the left does not pray for death for our foes, only for enlightenment), and so I hope she recovers so she can lose to Barbara Boxer with dignity.

Shameless booze-hounds run for California office

We should have figured out iCarly and eMeg’s weakness earlier, but it explains a lot: they are mean drunks who cannot hold their liquor, or so says Internet story teller, Talking Points Memo:

Fire’em All Fiorina gets so hopped up on the juice that she does the annoying trill thing you find in every college bar in Tijiuana, and eMeg is just such a joiner once she gets partying, just giving into peer pressure from the other Mean Girls. I’m guessing that there must be some great video of these two broads hitting on the busboys and maybe flashing for beads at Senior Frogg’s.

I’m sure this must mean something…

…but I’m not sure exactly what.

Californians are left with a deeply unsatisfying choice for the U.S. Senate this year. The incumbent, Democrat Barbara Boxer, has failed to distinguish herself during her 18 years in office. There is no reason to believe that another six-year term would bring anything but more of the same uninspired representation. The challenger, Republican Carly Fiorina, has campaigned with a vigor and directness that suggests she could be effective in Washington – but for an agenda that would undermine this nation’s need to move forward on addressing serious issues such as climate change, health care and immigration.

It is extremely rare that this editorial page would offer no recommendation on any race, particularly one of this importance. This is one necessary exception.

The SF Chronicle has decided not to endorse anyone in California’s US Senate race.

While I am not neutral here, Boxer has always been a consistent liberal vote, and so I considered her to be the counter-balance to our very hawkish other senator, DiFi. On the worst issues they cancel each other, on the best issues they vote in tandem.

So when the Chron cannot make a decision, I honestly wonder… is this another sign of the Death of the Media? If the Chron is saying that they see no difference between Boxer and Fiorina — and how else do you interpret that editorial — here in the lovely liberal island of the SF Bay Area, then what does it say about the rise of false equivalencies in the media?

The HP Way!

The Year of the GOP Woman

Carly “Fire ‘em all” Fiorina went on live mic and dissed Barbara Boxer’s hair:

God what is that hair? So yesterday!

Fiorina is expected to comment today on Bab’s shoes.

Teabaggers upset with Mooselini

San Jose Mercury News

Ho, ho, ho! Now she done stepped in it and tracked it in the igloo snow palace! Mooselini, the chillbilly grifter and half-time gubnor of Alaskastan used the awesome power of the Facebook (her favorite news source) to give an endorsement to the creator of the demonic sheep, failed HP CEO Carly Fire ‘Em All Fiorina in her quest to unseat Barbara Boxer as a US Senator.

Let’s shake it up in California!
I’d like to tell you about a Commonsense Conservative running for office in California this year. She grew up in a modest home with a school teacher dad, worked her way through several colleges, and then entered an arena where few women had tread. Through a combination of hard work, perseverance, and common sense, she proved the naysayers wrong to reach the top of her field, where she led with distinction – facing hard truths, making tough decisions, and showing real leadership through a rocky transition period. Where others had failed, her company had weathered the storm and settled on a stronger new foundation.

Her name is Carly Fiorina, and I’m proud to endorse her for U.S. Senate.

… California is still Reagan Country, and Carly promises her “Reagan Conservative” values will be put to good use for her state and for our great nation. Shaking it up in California is long overdue. Let’s help Carly do it!

It seems that the Cali Teabaggers, after hiding under tables when Mooselini threatened them with an earthquake from their fire-god Ronald Reagan, got themselves up, dusted off and fired back using the Facebook’s awesome fire-back technology! They prefer the long-shot teabagging candidate Chuck DeVore, and they told Mooselini so:

She supported the Wall Street bailouts.
She supported Cap and Trade.
She supported the confirmation of Sonia Sotomayer…. See More

And then there’s this…

Sarah! We love you, girl, for many reasons (faith, no-nonsense conservatism, etc.) but how did you come to this??? Who pressured you to back Fiorina? Just don’t get it, Sarah. Not at all. Chuck DeVore is the real deal. You’d know that if you did your homework.

…and let’s not forget this…

CARLY FIORINA IS PRO ISLAM!!! BAD BUSINESS Dealing where she sold to IRAN and bribed her way into bad business in MOSCOW and this is who you want as a conservative senator!!? Sarah Palin you have lost your mind along the way or maybe you didn’t! None the less you showed your colors and now you’ve lost your support with the tea party! Your a rino!

Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark. So Mooselini did what she had to do, which was use the awesome update power of the Facebook to update her detractors!

Update: I’d like to add a few things about my Carly endorsement because some reaction right out of the chute calls for more information:

Carly has been endorsed by the National Right to Life, the California Pro-Life Council, and the Susan B. Anthony List. She is pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, pro-military, and pro-strict border security and against amnesty. She is against Obamacare and will vote to repeal it and prevent the government takeover of private companies and industries. Carly is also a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Like me, she is a member of the NRA, has a 100% NRA rating, and she and her husband are gun owners. She is pro-energy development and believes as I do in an all-of-the-above approach to energy independence. She is against cap and tax. And most importantly, Carly is the only conservative in the race who can beat Barbara Boxer. That’s no RINO. That’s a winner.

Except these endorsements are not exactly true, either, but it’s Mooselini, so what did you expect? Accuracy? Truthiness?

Yup, Carly Fire ‘Em All Fiorina is about as popular as a sneeze while peeing with the Teabaggers, moderates, and liberals of California. Even Mooselini cannot changey-hopey that reality.
