    Oh, wow.  Oh, oh, oh, oh, wow.

    Go Republicans!  Go Carly!  To the barricades!

    I like her more every time I hear her speak. 100x the woman Hilary Clinton is.

    They couldn’t find 1 White Man to stand in as well? Or are White Men too politically taboo now?

    Jimmy Carter:They couldn’t find 1 White Man to stand in as well? Or are White Men too politically taboo now?

    Based on the end of the video, it would appear that these are leaders of pro-life organizations.  I doubt any pro-life organizations were left out simply because a white man was in charge of them (though I certainly have no knowledge of how this was put together).  I really think that the number of candidates is forcing people like Carly to stand up to set themselves apart from the crowd.  I like the bold, yet common sense, message she has here.

    It feels so good to have the truth spoken so well. A voice for the voiceless.

    She impresses me every time I see her.

    This is political theater. Everything is intentional. No one stated “Pro-Life organizations were left out because a White Man was in charge of Them.” A White Man was left out because He is a White Man. She’s running against numerous White Men and either Her or the powers that be didn’t want the competition represented.

    With all the race, sex, and gender pandering, I’m beginning to think I’ll just vote for any White Man just because He’s a White Man. See where this all leads?

    My favorite thing about Carly? She sticks it to Felony Clinton every chance she gets. I mean, she’s seriously right on this issue, but she keeps her eye on the target with deadly accuracy. Awesome.

    I like it.  The number of women with her in the video emphasizes that there is not a monolithic uniformity of agreement among women with the Left’s stance on “women’s issues”.  The preservation of life transcends race and sex and is a human issue.

    I would argue you don’t need as many whites.  Abortion is much more of a minority issues.  Only 34% of the abortions were performed on white women according to the Guttmacher Institute.

    The more I see Carly in action the more I’m impressed with her raw talent.  We’re lucky we have her as a one of our candidates.

    And then fate serves up a frivolous clown like Trump, who attracts all of the MSM’s attention.

    Arrrggggg!

    Fiorina presents the pro-life position as well as or better than any politician I have seen speak about the subject.

    So far, she’s my pick.  I know she’s only at 3-5%, but I think she’s an excellent candidate who knows the issues, speaks with passion and knowledge, and doesn’t pull punches.

    Go Carly Go!  That was fantastic on both a visual and substantive level.  No bombast, no bells & whistles, just moral clarity served up across the demographic spectrum.  Oh, and some nice public policy on top.  Let’s hear more of this.

    She reminds me of someone:   plain-speaking, clarity of thought and that directness; an unabashed willingness to take on the opposition; coherence, certainly for a politician, which is refreshing.

    Fiorina is lucid.  Maybe that’s why the board at HP didn’t like her.

    I love the way that she strikes me as a winner and makes me want to play on her team.

    Fiorina wants me to be a winner, too, which is an idea whose time has come around again.

    She has heft and deserves consideration.

    Yes, but are Republican Primary voters serious?

    Well, I am more for Ted Cruz (yes, Mr McCain, I am one of the crazy wacko birds – I voted for you) – OK, even Trump (really crazy), but she would make a fine VP…

    I take her speech to mean she is trying to get involved in passing the legislation she talked about, at least by meeting with legislators & doing some more speeches on the matter?

    Also, ‘she’s not in Tahoe or Aspen, enjoying life with fellow centimillionaires’ might be the most pleasant formulation of the lowest expectation of politicians this side of the law…

    My impression is women are more likely to be passionate pro-lifers than men.  I think they’re also more likely to be more passionate on the other side.

    I didn’t notice the absence of white men until it was pointed out. It did not jump out at me the way that it does that there are both men and women and blacks and whites in the group.

    There is no reason for Fiorina to go out of her way to include white men in her video group just as there is no reason to exclude one if he were standing by. I don’t like that sort of racial bean counting.

    Like Carly. Like the fact she is unabashedly pro-life. Did not like this video.

    The repeated use of “to save others” regarding the organ sales instead of zeroing in on the obvious profit motive of those cynical bastards undercuts the message.

    Jake Tapper was trying to get her to say that Scott Walker was an extremist on abortion, instead she talked about Mrs. Clinton’s views.

    So you’ll just join in with a new victim class. Way to move this off topic.

    Actually, I bet a white man was not included because most pro-life organizations want a woman as their face.  Think of the easy target an anti-abortion organization run by a white male Christian would make.  The DNC ad writes itself.

    That was an excellent exchange.  She did answer his question, but first she set it in the proper context.  He wants to paint Scott Walker as extremist, she says Hillary Clinton is the real extremist and then spells out how Hillary is extreme.  Clear, concise, well done.

    God bless Carly Fiorina – there is a lot that has gone wrong in this country – and something even more wrong when we ignore things like this and gush over things like Bruce Jenner (still Bruce to me).

    Adding a white man to the tableau would have looked like tokenism. Carly Fiorina probably knows all about that and prudently avoided it.

    Two more things to say about this:

    1) I don’t think there’s any question Carly should be on the ticket. If it’s not the top spot, the VP slot should be hers. She’s too smart, too tough, too principled to be ignored.

    2) It’s a national disgrace that Felony Clinton is a credible candidate for any major political party. Carly seems to be the only candidate pointing that out.

    God bless her!
