Carly Fiorina Would Consider Running America Into The Ground In 2016

Chuck Todd asks Carly Fiorina, after ruining two companies, would she like to run America into the ground? If Chuck showed that much chutzpah, we'd watch Meet The Press.

The final seconds of Meet The Press are often disturbing and today was no exception. Here's how it went down.

CHUCK TODD: Carly Fiorina, before I let you go, how serious are you about running for president?

CARLY FIORINA: That'll be something I consider at the right time.

CHUCK TODD: So are you considering?

CARLY FIORINA: Well, when people ask you over and over again, you have to pause and reflect. So I'll pause and reflect at the right time.

CHUCK TODD: So that means it's something you're pondering? You're going to go Iowa soon?

CARLY FIORINA: You have to ponder when people keep asking. And I've been to Iowa plenty to help women engage and isn't it fantastic that Joni Ernst won?

Carly Fiorina, is the ex-HP CEO who many blame for the demise of Hewlitt Packard. She is exactly the kind of person who helped create the financial collapse of 2008. She also was instrumental in the eventual demise of Lucent Technologies which was forced to merge with Alcatel in 2006 to remain solvent. Whatever the exact extent of Fiorina’s role, Lucent was soon sucked in deep, making big loans to sketchy customers... Fiorina made it known that Wall Street would generously reward companies that emphasized and delivered robust revenue growth...the company’s wild pursuit of growth gave it much further to fall (in the dot com bubble collapse).

Carly praised the election of Joni Ernst, as if electing Senator Hogballs was a good thing. Ernst was elected by the same corporate media that keeps telling Fiorina that running for office is a good idea. Thanks to Lil' Luke 'the Lesser' Russert, people are actually touting the hog-castrating fundamentalist as a good VP candidate.

In less than thirty seconds, the idea of a Fiorina/Ernst run almost seems plausible. Carly thought that it was a statement for the power of women in politics, that she helped get Ernst elected. I suppose that was the only thing in which Fiorina succeeded, after her corporate raidership, her failed advisement of the McCain campaign in 2008 and her failed Senatorial run in 2010.

We'd rather not wait til these self-loathing women who believe in voter suppression, off-shoring jobs, the regulation of women's bodies and low taxes for big corporations get elected to a higher office. There's no question they'd create Armageddon and bring the rapture a lot sooner than a level-headed Democrat ever would.
