Carly Fiorina

Sledge of the Day

Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett Packard sledges out Hilary Clinton.

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

She was speaking at the Iowa Freedom Summit and had attendees on their feet with her speech.

The audience roared and was suddenly engaged, hanging on her words as she criticized Clinton on one issue after another. And when she landed on Benghazi—”Unlike Hillary Clinton, I know what difference it makes that our American ambassador and three other brave Americans were killed in a deliberate terrorist attack”—the crowd surged to its feet with a standing ovation.

“That’s the first time I’ve ever seen her in person, and, frankly, I was moved by the speech. That takes a lot,” says Sam Clovis, a former conservative radio host and tea-party favorite in Iowa. “It was the perfect speech on the perfect topic at the perfect place at the perfect time given in the perfect manner.”

Fiorina, the only Republican woman actively considering a run for the White House, is taking on Clinton more forcefully and directly than any other GOP contender. It’s a deliberate strategy meant to make headlines, differentiate her from the pack, and elevate her position on the national stage. And in the process, it’s winning her friends, as Fiorina assumes an attack role that many Republican strategists think male GOP candidates need to avoid.

Does any one have an idea what the US should have as its top national security issue?

Barbara Boxer, US Senator for California thinks it’s climate change, Carly Fiorina disagrees. Gotta love those American political ads. Wish we did the same here.
