On November 9, 2009, I commented on the candidacy of Carly Fiorina for the U.S. Senate race in California. She was well-educated, well-spoken, well-experienced, and well-qualified. But, in my humble opinion, she was a RINO and far from being a conservative.
My blog post …
California has suffered greatly at the hands of its democrat legislature and its RINO Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who often acts like his ultra-liberal relatives.
The last thing we need is another rich Bay-area liberal posing as a Republican.
Look which Senate Republicans are endorsing Fiorina:
What we need …
California needs a strong conservative to represent California’s interests in Congress. People who can actually read and understand legislation. People who can stand up against a far-left liberal agenda and vote for things that can be proven and make sense. California needs a conservative Republican who can overcome complacency and resist corruption. At this point in time, I do not think that Carly Fiorina is that person. In fact, I can see very little difference between Fiorina and Barbara Boxer – except that Fiorina appears to have a positive IQ and can speak intelligently about a variety of subjects.
Just because California is a liberal state, does not mean that the Republican Pooh-Bahs need to select the most liberal Republican available … and one that is likely to support the political agenda of far-left liberal democrats
Personally, I think that all of Fiorina’s endorsers should be tossed out of office before they can do further harm to our nation by pretending to be ethical, principled Republican conservatives.
Do I believe Carly Fiorina had a conservative epiphany as the progressive socialist democrat Donald Trump? Not likely. But that does not mean that her selection as Ted Cruz’s running mate is not a brilliant ploy. She is well-spoken, extremely articulate, and hold her own in any debate. Perhaps the best running mate for Ted Cruz when he makes his case for being able to counter Hillary Clinton and re-capture many of the women lost by Donald Trump and his crude and boorish behavior.
Bottom line …
So while I may not chose Fiorina to represent me in the Senate, she may be the perfect Vice Presidential candidate for Ted Cruz. So I trust Ted Cruz, the only constitutional conservative in the race to do the right thing for our nation, the constitution, and the constitutional conservative constituency.
