    Carly Fiorina: Obama “at his most passionate when he’s attacking Republicans”

    Carly Fiorina: Obama “at his most passionate when he’s attacking Republicans”

    Carly Fiorina Blasts Obama’s Handling of ISIS

    Carly Fiorina appeared on the Kelly File last night and offered a harsh rebuke to President Obama’s recent remarks regarding the terror attacks in Paris.

    Fiorina pointed out that Obama is more comfortable attacking Republicans than he is talking about America’s enemies and laid blame at the feet of the president and Hillary Clinton who she charges with leaving a vacuum in the Middle East by prematurely pulling out American forces against military counsel.

    When Megyn Kelly asks Fiorina what can be done domestically to stop the rise of ISIS and other terrorists, she says one of the most logical first steps would be to stop the flow of Syrian refugees who can’t possibly be vetted adequately.

    She also correctly points out that military and intelligence operations in the U.S. are already overwhelmed and asks why we would add to that problem. She suggests that America needs more intelligence agents on the ground and then points out that there are more people working for the IRS than the FBI and the CIA.

    Overall, it was a very strong appearance. Watch the segment below:

    If you watched the video, at the beginning you saw Fiorina talking to a group in New Hampshire about this very issue. She apparently made quite an impression.

    Dan Seufert reported at the New Hampshire Union Leader:

    In Plymouth, Fiorina says Obama’s ISIS stance is ‘infuriating’

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina covered lots of ground speaking at Plymouth State University Monday night, hitting issues like government waste, the “bloated” tax code, and telling students of her common stances with Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.

    But a silence fell on a packed room of about 150 students, area residents and supporters at a town hall-style meeting when Fiorina criticized President Obama for his words on a television program Friday morning, just hours before the Paris terrorist attacks that killed at least 129 people and wounded hundreds more.

    “How infuriating,” she said. “For our President to say on national television hours before the Paris attacks that ISIS has been contained … How infuriating.”

    Speaking in the Hage Room as part of Plymouth State’s Presidential Candidate Lecture Series, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO said Obama’s policy on ISIS had “failed,” and was critical of the President for not speaking directly to the ISIS attacks, as French President François Hollande and British Prime Minister David Cameron did, she said.

    She criticized Obama and former Secretary of State and current Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for having failed to lead America in fighting terrorism. She was also critical of Obama for removing troops so quickly from Iraq, and for “declaring victory” in Iraq, which helped the terrorist threat grow, she said.

    “When the United States does not lead, the world is a far more dangerous place,” she said.

    Between WWI and the 1970s forces of secular reform were in the ascendancy across much of the Muslim world. That ended in the 1970s. One reason was that oil money pouring into Saudi Arabia and the ayatollahs take over of Iran provided money for a backlash, a counter Reformation so to speak. But another significant factor was that progressive political forces and the academic left that had once championed Western socialist style reform in the Middle East embraced the idea that those who preferred the ideas of the seventh century were more “authentic” than those who wanted to live in the 20th. The same forces also made it close to impossible to develop sources of affordable energy in West as part of the environmentalist movement.

    Obama is part of this so called “progressive” tradition.

      Long ago I read “Whirlwind” by Michener, about oil workers and the transition from the Shah to Khomeini. The US had its hands in so much of that, and in the end we made a lot of bad guys rich, but fueled the world perhaps.

      The Cliff Notes version of that region’s history would be helpful to me, but it seems like the Green Party revolt was the last best hope for change in Iran (and the last Iraq war). Obama stood down even then, then beat feet out of Iraq, and finally delivered the ayatollahs their bomb. He sides with the Muslim Brotherhood, but he seems more anti-American than pro anything.

    In nature, the female of the species is always the most ruthless. That’s why I think Carly is up to the job of CinC.

      Some call it the mama bear syndrome.

      There is another woman some call a king maker. She reloaded in 2012 and has had great successes in boosting select candidates who won elections, since, including Cruz. Trump is now benefiting from her efforts.

      She is in sync with Limbaugh , Levin, Coulter to a degree, Laura ingraham, Sean Hannity and the like. There has been a powerful network established and Sen Sessions is included.

      Sarah is kicking ass and taking names and doing it from the shadows.

      Don’t get between a mama bear and her beloved country’s best interests… She will burn you down and likely you won’t even know who struck the match.

      She, Sarah Palin, is an awesome role model for women in politics.

    Carly is very intelligent and obviously a student of the middle East disaster Obama created.

    If she can’t get into the first tier, she has flaws that need attention.

    Her presence in the primary cycle is beneficial in several ways, in my view.

    I doubt she will be nominated but not for her lack of trying.

    What I believe is almost no one understands much about the majority voters’ state of mind this time, except for Cruz, Trump and Carson.

    This cycle is push back on steroids and the voters have blood in there eye or wherever. It explains how totally flat footed Fox and the pundit class were to reactions over the first debate and the Trump campaign.

    Voters are driving this bus.

    Obama “at his most passionate when he’s attacking Republicans”……..and the only time he doesn’t need to use a teleprompter………….
