Carly Fiorina Makes Digs At Hillary Clinton, FITN Summit

PolitiChicks.comCarly Fiorina entered and exited the stage to Alicia Keys song, “This Girl is On Fire” at the First in the Nation (FITN) Republican Summit in Nashua, New Hampshire.   From there, Fiorina touted her extensive business experience while criticizing Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO has limited political experience but she is the only Republican woman who will be announcing May 4 whether she will run for president. During her speech she reminded the hundreds in attendance at the summit, “Hillary Clinton must not become president of the United States, because she lacks the candor and transparency that are so necessary to leadership.”

If Fiorina does run she said she doesn’t want to run based on her sex, but to focus on her business career.

Arguing why Clinton should not be president, Fiorina spoke of her business skills compared to Clinton’s time as Secretary of State:

“She does not have a track record of accomplishment.  Unlike Clinton, I know flying is an activity, not an accomplishment.”

Regarding Hillary’s scandal-laden Clinton Foundation, Fiorina said, “She tweets about women’s rights in this country and takes money from governments that deny women the most basic human rights.”

Fiorina also received an enthusiastic response when she spoke of former president Bill Clinton’s sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky:

“I was asked this morning on Fox News whether a woman’s hormones prevented her from serving in the Oval Office — not that we have seen examples ever of a man’s judgment being clouded by hormones, including in the Oval Office.”

With issues on businesses and economic regulation, Fiorina said America is “losing more businesses then it can ever launch” due to the government suffocating businesses with economic regulations. “The heroes of the American economy are small businesses and family-owned businesses.”  Decrying growth of government, Fiorina said after all her travel and time talking to Americans across the country, Fiorina realizes, “America is in desperate need of citizenship and leadership.”
