What you wackos don't get is that no politician can run a company, so they should try to minimize their laws that impose on something they know little to nothing about. I choose Reps because I know it's more likely that they'll mind their own business. If a Dem gets into office, even though they don't know crap, they try sticking their hands in the cookie jar with no real regard for consequences.

You're preaching to the choir... I just wish it meant more to you than a petty criticism.
Nonsense. She was making a statement about their management skills, not so much about their ability to run a company. For instance, judging by the way Hillary ran her campaign, if she were running a company that way, she'd have similar disastrous results. Same goes for running a country. Same with McCain-Palin. They're both unsuited.

About Republicans minding their own business, that is essentially the problem. Attack sovereign nations unprovoked is not minding their own business. Lying to do so is worse. Nation-building is not minding their own business.. Minding one's own business doesn't work well when you have to understand whether black people are experiencing enough racism to justify some form of affirmative action. It doesn't work well when you have to understand the peculiarities of people who you know nothing about, so you can craft individualized and effective solutions to their problems. It doesn't work well when you choose to isolate yourself and expect the problems to magically disappear. It hasn't worked well on any level the last 8 years, so spare me the nonsense about what Republicans can do.

This is thread 10 of this subject and of course you all got it wrong.

How nice of you to leave the other half out.

She said none of these 4 could run a large corporation.

She did not say a company, there is a large difference between a large corporation and a company.

Get your facts right!

Biden couldn't because he would put them in debt like he is.

Obama couldn't because he would tax himself to death.

I know! I don't know why some posters here are defending her when apparently McCain himself was furious and Carly is going to "disappear."

Just goes to show that at least on this board people are so anti-democrat that they will jump at the chance to defend any republican, even one that the actual candidates are shunning!

Well guess what Papa Mcpain is ticked off so Carly will never be seen again.
All interviews that she was scheduled to make have been canceled.

And she also pointed out the Obama/Biden COULDN'T either ... interesting how that was left out of the story isn't it????

Note the video at the bottom of the OP link ... the HuffPo ACTUALLY updated to the correct story.

I think Carly was right - but politically incorrect - when she said none of the 4 could run a major company. These jobs are quite different. In fact I thought a CEO like Ros Perot could not run a country either.

Yeah. Giving "half the story" and hiding the rest if pretty much the Obama camp M.O.

It's why we STILL don't know anything about Obama's time at Columbia.... and why he went to PAKISTAN for Spring Break, instead of Cancun like other normal, non- socially maladjusted and self-conflicted college students.


We may never know.

How are you Regressive desperados going to explain this away? One of your own fesses up.

She also stated the party-line, that unqualified Palin has more executive experience than Obama without realizing that Obama beat the frontrunner and wife of a former 2-term President to take the nomination in very well-run excessively drawn out marathon campaign...certainly an example of "executive" experience.
Advantage: Obama

Fiorina: Palin Doesn't Have Experience To Run A Major Company
Bwahahahaha! You are easily impressed with Barry's vast executive experience...considering that "running his campaing" is his only example and that Axlerod is the man on that particular job.

Barry is an empty suit. Glad you are impressed by a lot of us think he is a big zero.

"Fiorina was booked for several TV interviews over the next few days, including one on CNN. Those interviews have been canceled."

Straight talk expressed....
