    Asked about raising the minimum wage she said no, cost of living in New York is not the save as Louisiana. Fiorina, there is no place where the cost of living is low enough to live on minimum wage. Her view to award through meritocracy is in typical GOP profit over people and not through people.

    She's a typical Republican; wants to expand our military; guess who pays for that? Of course agrees to kill Planned Parenthood (a woman?) They should have asked the question: What would you do if your 12 year old daughter is raped? ( But CNN is too stupid to ask such question) Anyway like my wife's son who's got an high position in HP says: she was a disaster. If you can't run a company, then you can't run a whole country which acts like a Trump in the world. Shaking my old head.

    She defended her firing saying they had it out for her. But doesn't every fired person claim the had it out for them?

    Well, she was a Fortune 500 CEO at one time. Too bad she ran that company into the ground. And now she wants to lead our country. Makes sense to me...

    People like Fiorina (and pretty much the establishment GOP) want to blame poor people for all the ills of our society. They think that paying someone a livable wage is un-American and believe that anyone who wants to earn more money can if they just try hard enough. It's almost laughable how idiotic they are, but they have convinced a large portion of this country that the poor are the real problem.

    Carly Fiorina is an alpha female amongst several alpha males contending for the Republican nomination for president. I don't mean that in a negative way. Almost all presidential candidates, men and women, have alpha characteristics. Barack Obama is an alpha male, as is Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Sarah Palin. Within that alpha stereotype there are positive and negative characteristics that can dominate one's leadership style. The world's greatest leaders and the world's greatest despots all have alpha characteristics.

    What is being played out now on the Republican stage could be called "dominance hierarchy" a term usually applied to describing the establishment of a pecking order amongst animals...or in this case the 15 Republican contenders for the nomination. Right now Donald Trump is at the top of the pack, and as the media likes to point out, "Carly is surging". Whether Trump survives the Carson and Fiorina surges depends on how cunning they and the other contenders are to dislodge him. Each is relying on the skills that got them to where they are today. Those unique skills may be well suited in establishing the pecking order within this particular tribe, but may not serve them well in the much larger arena of American public opinion.

    Carly Fiornia has an ability to articulate her beliefs succinctly and with clarity. It is probably the single reason why she was able to rise to CEO in the hierarchical establishment of Hewlett Packard...a gift of the gab. However, being so head strong in her own abilities, or maybe distrustful of her colleagues' motives, she was less able to listen to or accept their advice in determining the course of action that HP should take. She was fired from HP because of her mistakes and incompetence. The clever way she has spun her firing is an indicator that she does not accept responsibility for her own failures.

    When I watched her on the debate stage, I saw an angry white women with a chip on her shoulder. She lacks emotion. She is cold hearted. She has nothing but scorn for her fellow male candidates. She hates Hillary Clinton for the successful woman that she is and that she herself is not.

    I don't see her as presidential or vice presidential. In fact, she would not be a team player as a VP...more like a Dick Cheney type. There is a reason why she is considered within the business community as one of the worst CEOs all time. The media may be enamored with her style, much the same as the people who brought her up the ladder in HP, were impressed with her style. The media should dig deeper.

    Carly Fiorina rose to her level of incompetence at HP. She was indeed a worst kind of CEO. We cannot let her have the reins of power of the president or vice president of the United States of America. She was a disaster for HP...she would be a bigger disaster for America.

    Schmidt, the worse part I found is her lying; specially related to Planned Parenthood; like she said a "living" fetus to be carved up for "parts" to be sold. How can a woman launch such horrible lies? Indeed she has no honest bone in her body; lets carve her up and sell it to make dog food.

    Look at the contradictions presented by the top three GOP. The GOP is acting out in desperation like hiding in the Bastille . What must really be frightening for them is Bernie is alive and ticking and surging. Look for a total assault on the middle class challenging them to work hard to be a Trump and not expect a fair shot at life like Sanders stands for.

    The right will excuse Carly's lies saying that is what it is really like. The end justifies the means.

    Yes, Carly Fiorina is a pathological liar and refuses to even admit that she lied. Read this on the MSNBC website. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos called out her lie on Planned Parenthood and asked if she misspoke. Instead she doubled down on her lie: "No I didn't misspeak...I have seen those images."

    No Carly, you did not see those images, at least, for Planed Parenthood. You are a liar. And that's why you are not qualified to be president and why you were fired from HP. Look in the mirror Carly. YOU are the problem.

    Schmidt, On MSNBC they also invited a spokes woman of Planned Parenthood; she said that the "pictures" were "produced/falsified" by the GOP to set the "mood" for a Government shutdown for political purposes only. She swore that they never "sold" fetus parts but once in a while "gave" items to research institutes to be able to find cures for all kind of diseases like cancer etc. I'm amazed that no one from the interviewers asked the right questions; like: What is worse an "abortion" or get beat up your whole life as an unwanted kid and then get shoved into the Army as cannon fodder.

    They still quote Carly as gospel. There needs to be some retribution for a lie and the repeater of a lie.

    If you turn off the sound and watch Carly's mannerisms and facial expressions when she talks, that is one angry woman with an axe to grind. Not a reason to want to be president.

    Schmidt. I just wonder why an Hillary or a Bernie does not jump on that and tell the truth; sorry to say the Dem's are a bit deaf/lazy and don't react forcefully enough.

    Schmidt, Carly angry???...........why should she be when she hasn't held a job since 2005 after being fired from HP. She most likely has been into Herself all these past years and sees her reflection in the mirror more often. Why should she be angry?

    I do agree with you, but Carly shows me more for why she should not be elected as how she would be very manipulative by special interests. She is more about big business and less for the middle class and poor. She definitely would maneuver the Presidential Office to remove many advances in civil rights, health care, security, economic recovery and employee benefits. She's a walking and talking mouth piece for corporate interests, a dangerous candidate for 2016. Oh, she did show America her softer side on the death of daughter high-lighting an agenda on illegal drug enforcement. Here again, is an area (illegal drug enforcement) that is beset by special interests that would prevent her from pursuing what she says she would do. If a person is ideally honest to pursue enforcing tougher laws on illegal drugs moving into America than it's going have to take someone more powerful than a Carly. This is an agenda item that needs a powerful world leader ready to combat the dark forces in and outside of America that plagues our country with drugs. I can only come up with one potential leader (Colin Powell), but he's never given any intention of running for office. All the other candidates, including the Democrats, are all just about survival in the political drama of the Presidents role.

    AmcmurryFreedom,

    What about Bernie Sanders?
