It does not do justice to CEO turned presidential candidate Carly Fiorina to say she has an answer ready for every question. Her ready answer is always the perfect answer and the choice of words in her responses is flawless. She is the first candidate I have ever observed that simply cannot be stumped by any questioner.
This being the case, it alludes me why she has done so poorly at the polls even with several very strong debate performances under her belt. Some have described her as unlikeable. When I vote in my local primary and general election I will not be voting for a friend. I will be casting my ballot for a chief executive. I do not care at all about Fiorina’s level of social skills. We have had almost eight years of a slick, charismatic president and find the nation in a terrible spot.
Never Held Elected Office
It could be that GOP party members are holding the fact that Fiorina has never held elected office against her. When Barack Obama won the presidency he had literally never run anything or been in charge of anyone. The manager at your local fast-food restaurant had more executive and managerial experience than he did when he assumed office. It should come as no surprise that he has been one of the country’s worst presidents.
Although Fiorina cannot claim to have been an office holder she is someone who rose from secretary to CEO at a Fortune 500 company. She has many, many years’ experience as a manager and executive. She would make a great chief executive of the United States. It is a sad mystery to me why the voters do not agree.
With the opening of primary season just a short time off, it appears to be a safe bet that Fiorina will not be the eventual Republican nominee. Fiorina’s supporters can take heart, however, because it could be that she may nonetheless have a role to play in this election cycle. I will be blogging about her again very soon.
