Carly Fiorina almost unanimously has been declared the winner of last night’s CNN debate.
It’s worth revisiting some of her highlights.
I don’t normally use campaign material for posts, but this grouping of videos circulated by CARLY for America, the SuperPAC supporting her, saved me a ton of work since I was going to put together a compilation anyway!
I’ve chosen just the few that were of interest to me, not the entire set.
(Hint to campaigns — make our lives easier!)
Excerpt: “We have come to a pivotal point in our nation’s history where this nation’s possibilities and potential are being crushed by a government grown so big, so powerful, so inept, so corrupt and a political class that refuses to do anything about it. I am prepared to lead the resurgence of this great nation.” Full transcript here.
Carly responding to Donald Trump’s comments about her face
Excerpt: “I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said.” Full transcript here.
Excerpt: “You know what a leader does? They challenge the status quo. They solve problems that have festered for a long time and they produce results. That is what my life is about. People know this is about far more than replacing a ‘D’ with an ‘R.’ This is about changing the system. Full transcript here.
Excerpt: “As regard to Planned Parenthood, anyone who has watched this videotape, I dare, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes.” Full transcript here.
Carly on HP
Excerpt: “I led Hewlett Packard through a very difficult time, the worst technology recession in 25 years. The NASDAQ stock index fell 80 percent. It took 15 years for the stock index to recover. We had very strong competitors who literally went out of business, and lost all of their jobs in the process. Despite those difficult times, we doubled the size of the company, we quadrupled its top line growth rate, we quadrupled its cash flow, we tripled its rate of innovation. Yes, we had to make tough choices, and in doing so, we saved 80,000 jobs, went on to grow to 160,000 jobs and now Hewlett Packard is almost 300,000 jobs.” Full transcript here.
Excerpt: “Mrs. Clinton, if you want to stump a Democrat, ask them to name an accomplishment of Mrs. Clinton’s.” Full transcript here.
Carly talks about the $10 bill
Excerpt: “What I would think, is that we ought to recognize that women are not a special interest group. Women are the majority of this nation, we are half the potential of this nation, and this nation will be better off when every woman has the opportunity to live the life she chooses.” Full transcript here.
Carly‘s closing statement
Excerpt: “Here in this nation, every American’s life must be filled with the possibilities that come from their God-given gifts, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” Full transcript here.
