Now let me get this straight,

HP: 83,200 employees worldwide and had total revenue of $42.4 billion.

USG: 1.8 million civilian employees and an operating budget of $3.1 trillion.

Ms. Fiorina in her own words.


YouTube - Carly Fiorina on Sarah Palin's experience

I do suspect that Palin would be more successful at wiretapping her own employees than Fiorina.

Talk about the "soft bigotry of low expectations."™

Well if anyone knows what it's like to not be qualified to run something it would be Fiorina...

"The stock is up a bit on the fact that nobody liked Carly's leadership all that much," said Robert Cihra, an analyst with Fulcrum Global Partners. "The Street had lost all faith in her and the market's hope is that anyone will be better."

She was on Neal Boortz today (hosted by Herman Cain) speaking about this and economic stuff as well. Did not get to hear all of it (client visit) but she was "pulling a Palin" and repeating some of this same stuff.

How slick of you to leave out the fact that she said both Biden and Obama could not run HP either!

What again was the Presidents main job? Until you understand that you wont know what it is like.

So a few months ago when you were hammering Romney because he is a golden businessman and saying he was not capable of running the US because he was a businessman that was ok, now it is not.

Which freakin way do you want it.

Again double standard liars within the dem party.

Which way do you want it?

Of course this doesn't matter because now she has "governing experience".

These people are so full of crap!

Carly was unimpressive but I would have ranked her fourth or fifth out of the Republican primary candidates. The one we got was (in my opinion) 17th out of 17 and I thought it was a joke or publicity stunt. Well, maybe it still is

Hewit Packer? Is that what they're calling it now? Carly is qualified to run Hewlett Packard but not the country.

She wasn't all that qualified. She only lasted about a minute and a half before the Board fired her. But even in that minute and a half, she still cost H-P millions in one of the stupidest buy-outs in the history of computers.

Maybe I should have said "more qualified to run HP than to run the country"?

Yup. The truth was she wasn't qualified to run either one.

But you know how it is; ego goes a long way in Presidential politics. There are always candidates who think they're a lot better than they really actually are for the job.
