I still believe the Republican Presidential Primary is a race between Jeb Bush and . . . . . (with my gut telling me the “and” is Rand Paul) and the General Election will be against Hillary Clinton.
However, three things recently happened which might give us a new “and-” Carly Fiorina:
1) MSNBC limosine liberal Andrea Mitchell and Hillary sycophant thinks she has a gotcha question for Fiorina regarding Iraq and Carly turns it around and says “every single Republican candidate has been asked about their vote for the war in Iraq. The one person who’s not been asked that question, because she won’t answer the question is Hillary Clinton. One person who was on the job in 2011, when Iraq started to fall apart, was not the Republican nominees or — candidates for president, it’s Hillary Clinton. she hasn’t been asked yet. What would she do now in Iraq?” Reminded me of Reagan’s take-off on Teddy Roosevelt when he said about Iran and the hostages, “(Carter) speaks loudly and carries a fly swatter.”
2) As we all know, Hillary Clinton has become infamous for not taking questions from the press. Anyway, Hillary is hosting a roundtable OBSERVABLE by the press in a South Carolina hotel. Florina decides to have a press conference in the same hotel on the same day where Florina will actually take questions from the press. Reminded me when Reagan took his anti-Communism to the Berlin Wall and dared Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.”
3) Not only was Carly given the biggest kudos for a recent Iowa Lincoln Day Dinner (11 GOP presidential candidates were there), she didn’t pretend to be “Iowan” as she found it remarkable breakfast in Iowa was “huge cinnamon rolls” or going to a Pizza Ranch (she called it “Pizza Palace”). Reminds me of when Reagan was asked what he thought about Clint Eastwood running for Mayor and said “What makes him think a middle-aged actor who played with a chimp could have a future in politics.”
Few people can use pointed rhetoric, take the fight to their opponent, and remain personally humble. Might the dark horse to take on a former Secretary of State be a former Kelly Girl secretary?
Sidenote- Current Vegas odds on the next US President (different sites have slightly different numbers):
1/1 (even odds)-Hillary Clinton, 4/1-Jeb Bush, 7/1-Scott Walker, 8/1-Marco Rubio, 16/1-Rand Paul, 33/1-Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney, Joe Biden, 66/1-Carly Fiorina, Rahm Emmanuel.
Update: Former Governor of NY, George somebody just announced. He is definitely a guy looking to be Veep or in the cabinet. Traction out of the NE is definitely not likely and puts a damper on Christie.
