She's not your typical politician, and her ability to rise from nothing in the business world (which is super competitive, especially for a woman) speaks volumes re: her abilities.

The Latest Video Trying to Exonerate Carly Fiorina Just Proves She Didnt Tell the Truth

"...On the same day that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee pummeled Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards with questions about discredited "sting" videos targeting the women's health care provider, yet another anti-choice group has rushed to Carly Fiorina's defense with a video that purports to prove the truth of her comments about Planned Parenthood at the recent Republican debate. As with previous attempts, they instead prove that Fiorina wasnot telling the truth when she answered a question about Planned Parenthood funding by invoking a video showing "a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain."..." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Even the Person Who Collected the Footage Carly Fiorina Says She Saw Proves She Didn't See It

"...Will any of this cause Fiorina to finally admit she was embellishing what she saw, for effect? That is unlikely. Challenged multiple times by Chuck Todd, on this weekend'sMeet the Press, Fiorina refused to give in."That scene absolutely does exist. And that voice saying what I said they were saying, "We're going to keep it alive to harvest its brain" exists as well," she maintained.Fiorina is betting that not backing down from her well-documented embellishmentsand lies will cause an exhausted media to stop challenging her on them.

 How the Media Gave Carly Fiorina a Free Pass to Lie About Planned Parenthood

"... The New York Times's front-page lead story also celebrated Fiorina as a credible antidote to the gender gap and the Democrats' claims of a Republican war on women.' A reader had to wade through more than 1,200 words of padded fluff before learning that the most affecting moment staged by this credible antidote was a brazen lie. There is no evidence in the secretly taped Planned Parenthood videos of a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. As the story mentions in passing in paragraph 23, The video that Mrs. Fiorina seems to be referring to does show a still image of a fetus being held outside the womb. But it is not seen squirming as Mrs. Fiorina describes, nor is there any indication that it is about to have its brain removed. (Her foreign policy pronouncements were even more objectionable if that's possible.)..." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Carly Fiorina Stubbornly Stands By Inaccurate Description Of Planned Parenthood Video
"...The video Fiorina refers to is of a former tissue procurement technician describing an experience where she was working in the pathology lab and saw a fetus with its heart still beating. The woman interviewed said the brain was going to be procured from the fetus. However, the footage used alongside her commentary was stock footage of a fetus with its legs moving, not actual footage of what she witnessed, leading critics to point out that Fiorina mischaracterized the footage that was being shown. The supervisor the woman mentions in the tape also did not say the fetus was kept alive to harvest its brain...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Planned Parenthood Supporters Interrupt Carly Fiorina: How Can You As a Woman Not Support Our Healthcare
"...Fiorina, who has risen in the polls since the second GOP debate, is facing controversy ever since she made the comment that a video released by an anti-abortion group showed a fully formed fetus alive as someone can be heard saying they must keep it alive in order to harvest its brain.

Fiorina Pops the Liberal Bubble
"...For millions of Americans who watched the second GOP presidential debate on CNN, the moment that briefly focused on the revelations exposed by a series of undercover videos featuring unsavory Planned Parenthood executives and practices was the first they'd heard of that metastatic scandal. While Fiorina's rivals primarily burnished their conservative bona fides on the matter of stripping the abortion provider of its taxpayer-provided largess, Fiorina recognized the need to educate the public on the nature of that scandal. It is testament to her abilities as a communicator and the scope of the threat to Planned Parenthood's privileges that the left has spent the weeks that followed the debate trying to discredit Fiorina and her attack on that favored liberal advocacy organization...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Score one for Fiorina

"...Todd persisted with his effort to negate her claims, but Fiorina expressed a resolute and cogent critique of Planned Parenthood's harvesting of fetal body parts, abetted by funding from U.S. taxpayers.  She deftly turned the argument away from Todd's gotcha play to the heart of the matter. Planned Parenthood desperately wants everyone to think this isn't going on, because when Americans realize this is going on, whether they are pro-life or pro-choice, they are horrified.  Her coup de gr ce was delivered thusly:  Do you think this is not happening?  Does Hillary Clinton think this is not happening? ... This is happening in America today, and taxpayers are paying for it. Not only are taxpayers having to fund this butchery, but Planned Parenthood doles out millions of dollars every single election cycle to Democrat candidates.  This is a political slush fund, on top of being butchery, that Americans again, whether they are pro-life or pro-choice cannot support. I score that round in favor of Carly Fiorina...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Carly Fiorina defends her lie with a whole bunch of lies

"...Ido like it when Republican candidates sport a resume full of corporate executive work, because it really shows the public how many fools and idiots coast into that position not on merit but on their bullshitting abilities. Donald Trump, Herman Cain, and now we have Carly Fiorina, who just can't understand why her perceived underlings (voters, journalists) won't scurry away, pretending to accept her bullshit like former employees of hers had to do, lest they lost their jobs.And so it goes that Fiorina, who could make this entire Planned Parenthood controversy go away by saying something like, I may have misremembered the video, but I still think abortion is wrong, instead is doubling and tripling down. And every time she does, she lies more and more. She was on Meet the Press and, so enamored of the idea that she is perfect and could never do anything wrong, just went to town with the defensive posturing...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Carly Fiorina emerges as the rights new champion on abortion issues

"...On the facts, Carly Fiorina has been proved wrong. But on the politics, her impassioned condemnation of a Planned Parenthood video has turned her into a champion of the antiabortion movement and given her outsider candidacy new momentum.Republicans have rallied to her side, not just to defend one of their own against fact checkers and attacks from Democrats for misrepresenting what was in the video, but also because she brings a fresh voice and perspective to what has long been a predictable debate over abortion...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Questions Remain Over Whether Video Carly Fiorina Cited in Debate Shows Abortion - TIME
"...The footage Fiorina described does not exist. Another anti-abortion activist, David Daleiden, had taken a clip of the Cunningham footage and cut it together with a voiceover from a medical worker describing a separate event, when fetal tissue was acquired for medical research. Cunningham and Daleiden have not claimed that the footage was taken from a Planned Parenthood facility, as Fiorina suggested. I am neither confirming or denying the affiliation of the clinic who did this abortion, Cunningham said.In an interview Tuesday, Cunningham maintained that it was preposterous for anyone to suggest a fetus at 17 and a half weeks should not get medical treatment, if it showed signs of life outside the womb. It's just nonsensical that any OBGYN would not provide any neonatal intensive care, he said...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

GRAPHIC CONTENT–'Carly Fiorina Was Right': Group Releases Full Abortion Video ... - Breitbart News
"...Carly Fiorina appears to have conflated the video of the fetus with the story being told by O'Donnell at the same time. It's fair to say Fiorina's description was incorrect to the degree it treated both incidents as relating to one fetus; however, both the brain harvesting incident and the video of a fully formed, kicking fetus are real.Breitbart News spoke to the source of the video, the Center for Bioethical Reform, last week. CBR's Gregg Cunningham said at the time, This is an absolutely real video of an abortion. He added, People always try to claim the images and video are not real. Cunningham explained that their agreement with abortion clinics strictly prevents them from releasing any information which might lead to the clinic being identified. A press release today states, Violating these prohibitions could subject CBR to legal liability and jeopardize clinic access for current and future projects. We are even obligated to delete the audio track on all of our videos. ..." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Planned Parenthood tries in vain to get Carly Fiorina to retract video claim - Washington Post

"...It could have been a simple story of facts, exaggeration and fetal tissue. In the last Republican presidential debate, Carly Fiorina passionately challengedHillary Clinton and President Obama to watch one of the undercover videos featuring a Planned Parenthood official talking about donating fetal tissue to researchers.Describing the videos at last week's debate, Fiorina said, "Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain."It was arguably her best moment of a very good debate performance, but fact-checkers pointed out quickly that none of the videos by the Center for Medical Progress actually showed this...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

How Double Standards Over Appearances Could Hobble Carly Fiorina - Vanity Fair
"...Carly Fiorina is being congratulated throughout the land for not only winning the CNN debate last week, but for doing it in three-and-a-half-inch heels. Quite an accomplishment, if she says so herself, which she does: It was a long debate, and I'll tell you what, I had to do it in high heels. I couldn't do it, and nor could any of the men running against her. Though a high-heeled-shoe race would be a nice break from all these debates. I put my money on Jeb.But why is it necessary for a presidential candidate to prove her worth by imitating the ancient Chinese practice of foot-binding? Partly, I suppose, it is to make herself seem taller. History shows that in American presidential politics, the taller candidate usually wins. There are obvious evolutionary reasons for this, and they will not be easily overcome. But they can be overcome, and probably will be someday. The one time I met Margaret Thatcher, she turned out to be unbelievably short. That, clearly, didn't stop her. Golda Meir was no long drink of water. But height can't be the only consideration. Arianna Huffington, who lacks not for height, is quoted on her own Web site, huffingtonpost.com, saying that she owns a pair of the same shoes Carly wore and loves them. And yet she retains her balance, both politically and physically. It is clearly important to Fiorina to look put together and it's nice (he said hypocritically) that no one is making a fuss over the fact that the brand of shoe she was wearing (they were Manolo Blahniks) seem to cost more than $600 at Nordstrom. To be fair, you do get two of them for that...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Carly Fiorina Offers Republicans a Pathway to Reach Women - New York Times

"...With a debate performance that was steely and at times deeply personal, Carly Fiorina appears to have improved her standing in the race to be the Republican nominee. But even if she falls short, she took a big stride toward filling a role her party badly needs: a credible antidote to the gender gap and the Democrats' claims of a Republican war on women. The question, as many Republicans see it, is whether they can seize on the opening. A series of events building on the horizon threatens to feed into efforts by the Democrats to paint the Republican Party as tone-deaf on women's issues...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

What Carly Fiorina Got Wrong About Mass Incarceration at the GOP Debate - Slate Magazine (blog)

"...Carly Fiorina did the most to help her campaign in the three-hour CNN Iron Man debate. She did two things that the men who were once front-runners have had a hard time doing: She bested Donald Trump in a tussle and she used her answers to set herself apart from the pack.The second GOP debate touched on issues from pot legalization to gun rights to how to defeat ISIS. And there were plenty of side moments. Jeb Bush and Trump debated whether the real estate magnate had tried to open a casino in Florida; Bush defended his wife; Ben Carson and Trump exchanged views on vaccinations; Fiorina spoke of burying a child who had died of drug addiction. ..." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Carly Fiorina for (Vice) President!
"...And yet the problem for Fiorina is that despite her killer debate performances and her perfect ads, few are taking her seriously as a candidate for president. Is it possible to have a runaway favorite for vice president? If it is, then Carly Fiorina is it.At about this point in the 2012 election, Herman Cain was leading in the polls. More Trump than Fiorina, Cain was a successful businessman, he kept his message simple, and he didn't concern himself with knowing a lot about world politics. (Full disclosure: I worked on Cain's U.S. Senate race when he ran in Georgia in 2004). In 2008, Rudy Giuliani was the runaway favorite. While Giuliani was a politician, he was the successful two-term mayor of New York City who led the city in the time of crisis following the 9/11 attacks; he wasn't the traditional senator or governor, with experience with statewide races, who we tend to see on the presidential stage...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

How Carly Fiorina Won a Debate and Put Herself in an Unwinnable Spot
"...The second biggest winner was Carly Fiorina, the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard. A veteran of infamous Silicon Valley Game of Thrones style machinations, Fiorina's success Wednesday evening laid in her ability to thwart her enemy without appearing to even try. Fiorina speaks with a rare mixture of authority and humility, along with an ample dose of grace. Her wry rejoinder to Trumps's infamous that face comment in Rolling Stone amplified The Donald's otherwise underwhelming and fumbly performance, and artfully introduced a news cycle focused on his potential (and, frankly, overdue) self-immolation. Fiorina is, at least for now, the G.O.P.'s outsider of choice...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Why Fiorina Won

"...To which: The crowd went wild. Here was Fiorina, a woman the woman! refusing to pander to women. Here was Fiorina, refusing to play the game the boys were playing. Here was Fiorina, everywoman-ing.   And then, of course, there was the moment when moderator Jake Tapper, who himself seemed to be taking some pages from the Jerry Springer handbook last night, asked Fiorina about Donald Trump's recent comments disparaging her looks. (Trump's quote to Rolling Stone: Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? ) Trump had clarified those comments, suggesting that he was referring to her persona. But, you know.Fiorina's reply to this question was a study in the rhetorical power of starkness. The candidate took a meaningful beat. She looked at the camera. And then she said: I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said. ..." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Carly Fiorina Tests Donald Trumps Indestructibility

"...That comment earned Fiorina some applause from an audience that appeared to have been drawn from the Hoover Institution/Cold War wing of conservatism, more than the Tea Party. But she didn't receive nearly as much applause for that as for the response she gave to Tapper's question about theRolling Stone article, following another exchange between Trump and Bush, during which Trump emphasized that he'd heard something Bush had said. Looking levelly into the camera, Fiorina, the only female in the G.O.P. race, said calmly but forcefully, Mr. Trump said that he heard Mr. Bush very clearly and what Mr. Bush said. I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said. Doubtless, it was a line that Fiorina had rehearsed, but she delivered it beautifully, and it generated by far the biggest cheers of the night. Trump, for once, seemed somewhat at a loss for words, and his face, which was red all night it was very hot onstage, and many other candidates were sweating, too seemed to blush a little deeper. I think she's got a beautiful face, he said, finally, and I think she's a beautiful woman.

Carly Fiorina won the GOP debate, but fact checkers will have a field day

"...At Wednesday's CNN debate, Carly Fiorina did what no other Republican has been able to do: she stopped Donald Trump cold.CNN's Jake Tapper provided the opening. "In an interview last week in Rolling Stone magazine, Donald Trump said the following about you. Quote, 'Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?' Mr. Trump later said he was talking about your persona, not your appearance. Please feel free to respond what you think about his persona."Fiorina didn't flinch.

Carly Fiorina's victory lap

"...Republicans observed Carly Fiorina Day Thursday, celebrating the former Hewlett-Packard CEO's standout performance at the Reagan Library debate the evening before.Phones were ringing off the hook at CARLY for America, the super PAC that's essentially running FIorina's ground game. Keith Appell, a senior adviser to the super PAC, said it was too early to know anything certain but all signs pointed to a post-debate surge in fundraising.In the field, there were similar signs that Fiorina was on the rise.

Was Carly Fiorina real debate winner? - Christian Science Monitor
"...To this early point in the race Ms. Fiorina has had a tough run. She's impressed audiences at town halls, dinners, and other small gatherings across the early voting states, but that hasn't translated into actual support. According to the RealClearPolitics rolling average, right now she's tied for 13th with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal with a mere 1.3 percent of the Republican primary vote.But that might have worked to her advantage. Relegated to the early debate, the undercard, by Fox News on Aug. 6, Fiorina shone.

Carly Fiorina: What you need to know about the winner of the early Republican ... - Vox

"...With no experience in elected office and a limited base of political support, Fiorina has fared poorly in the polls, so she was not able to participate in Thursday's prime time debate. Instead, she was relegated to the earlier debate alongside long shots like George Pataki, Jim Gilmore, and Lindsey Graham.But her clear, confident answers to the moderators' questions, and her attacks on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, helped her stand out from the crowd."Hillary Clinton lies about Benghazi, she lies about emails," Fiorina said. "She is still defending Planned Parenthood. And she is still her party's frontrunner."Fiorina also attacked Republican frontrunner Donald Trump."I didn't get a phone call from Bill Clinton before I jumped in the race," she said.

Republican Debate : Carly Fiorina Positions As GOP Candidate Contrast With ... - International Business Times
"...As she stood at a podium in Cleveland on Thursday evening during the first of two debates among Republican aspirants to the presidency, Carly Fiorina declared that Iran is at the heart of evil in the Middle East. But back when she was still the chief executive officer of Hewlett-Packard, the giant Silicon Valley technology company, the firm sold hundreds of millions of dollars worth of printers and other products to Iran through a Middle East distributor, sidestepping a U.S. ban on trade with the country, according to a report in the San Jose Mercury News.Such contrasts between current campaign rhetoric and past business practices seem likely to emerge in coming days as Fiorina's opponents now sift through the record of a candidate who has suddenly gained currency.

Carly Fiorina 'Disappointed' With Jeb Bush's Comments On Women's Health - Huffington Post

"...Following a standout performance at the first Republican presidential debate in Cleveland on Thursday, former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina criticized Jeb Bush for his "foolish" comments about women's health."It's disappointing. I spent all of last year with a lot of other conservatives pushing back effectively against the war on women. [Colorado Sen.] Cory Gardner did a good job. [Iowa Sen.] Joni Ernst did a good job," Fiorina told reporters following the second-tier debate, which took place several hours before the larger, primetime event.

Carly Fiorina won the early GOP debate—at least according to Google Trends - Fortune
"...Fiorina's biggest problem in this unprecedented and sprawling Republican field is simple: name recognition. The former Hewlett-Packard CEO stands out as the only woman on a combined stage of 16 men. She's smart, articulate, and routinely demonstrates a depth of knowledge on global economic and national security issues. For many Republican women, she is the anti-Sarah Palin, the anti-Michelle Bachmann a reminder that center-right thoughtful versus right-wing flippant reflects much of today's party faithful.Fiorina is a dogged campaigner. She nabs every TV slot that passes by, and hasn't taken a break from the campaign trail including fundraising since she jumped into the ring on May 4. And yet, she can't crack the 3%-of-GOP-voters mark (though, at one point, she came close to qualifying for the magic top ten who are debating in tonight's primetime forum.)..." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Carly Fiorina won the Happy Hour Debate
"...From the start, Fiorina has framed herself as the candidate who wasn't afraid to take on Hillary Clinton. Tonight Fiorina was the Republican who wasn't afraid to take on Trump. She looked feisty. The men seemed wary. Not long ago, Rick Perry led the attack on Trump. (Addendum: He swatted The Donald tonight, but with less fervor than his Trump is a cancer on GOP speech.)I am no fan of Trump. Like Perry, I think he is bad for the GOP. If there is a positive element in Trump's candidacy, it's that his language breaks through. You don't see him shoot off a laundry list of policy points as part of a clearly-canned package. He doesn't use DC-speak words. He has forced candidates to appear more spontaneous, except most did not pick up the challenge.Really I had trouble figuring out why they were in the race...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

The Fiorina on that stage Thursday was the confident and prepared candidate I saw at that Christian Science Monitor breakfast in April.Gov. John Kasich (Ohio), enjoying a hometown advantage at the Cleveland debate, did very well. Gov. Chris Christie (N.J.) also did very well. When he was hit with his state's economic record and downgrades, Christie was prepared and delivered statistics with an I dare you to challenge me forcefulness. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush could learn from that example. As for Bush, he did okay. And on the okay scale, he was at the high end. Gov.

Carly Fiorina won the 'Happy Hour' debate. By a lot. - Washington Post

"...From the start, Fiorina was poised and confident. She followed a halting and seemingly nervous answer by Texas Gov. Rick Perry with a fluid riff on why she was running and how she was best positioned to beat Hillary Clinton. And, she closed that first answer with this quotable (and good) line: "The highest calling of leadership is to challenge the status quo and unlock the potential of others. We need a leader who will lead the resurgence of this great nation and unlock its potential once again."That poised and confident answer was a sign of things to come for Fiorina. As people like Perry (still not a good debater), South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (why was he so sad???) and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (angry much?) struggled, Fiorina shined. She repeatedly hit on her knowledge of the world and foreign policy and, smartly for this Republican audience, went after Clinton on Benghazi...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

We need to tear down cyber walls, not on a mass basis but on a targeted basis, she said. She repeated a frequent stump speech promise that her first two calls as president would be to her friend Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and to the supreme leader of Iran.

Fiorina, who polled at just an average of 1.3 percent in FOX's tally of five recent national surveys, was praised by observers on her fluid delivery of lines on Iran, illegal immigration and Washington gridlock.

Her r sum comes from the corporate world she led Hewlett-Packard from 1999 to 2000, and her record was, shall we say, mixed but you wouldn't have known it by watching her performance on Thursday.The debate was humiliating. It took place in an empty arena and the moderators, seemed intent on rubbing the participants' noses in their failure to qualify for the primetime clash.

"On the one hand she was very fluid, on the other she was really combative."Krauthammer said Fiorina showed her fluidity when asked about the Middle East. "She went through a list of American allies that have not gotten what they need from us in a way that showed a real command of the facts," Krauthammer said.Her combativeness showed when she went after front-runner Donald Trump for changing his position on issues.Fox News' Brit Hume called Fiorina the "consensus winner," and said she will likely benefit from seeing her sound bites replayed for people who weren't able to watch...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

And her swipe at Donald Trump who donated to Hillary Clinton and takes phone calls from Bill Clinton was one of the most gratifying moments of the debate.Even Rick Perry seemed impressed, and sort of endorsed Fiorina for Secretary of State at one point.Fiorina also did an adequate job painting a picture of the 2016 election as a showdown between the conflicting ideologies of conservatism and progressivism, and lamented that big government was preventing too many people from realizing the American dream...." see full article or see all articles on this topic

Did any of you get a phone call from Bill Clinton? I didn't. Maybe it's because I hadn't given money to the foundation or donated to his wife's Senate campaign. She gave credit to Trump for tapping to an anger that people feel but also revealed how she would challenge him if they were sharing the same stage tonight.

She's also developed a knack for turning even provocative reporters' questions to her advantage. She will lean heavily on those newfound skills while campaigning in Iowa and New Hampshire, the two early states that tend to determine if a would-be contender surges into the top tier or falls by the wayside.

Carly Fiorina shows the GOP how to man up - Washington Post (blog)

"...Carly Fiorina, unlike some GOP commentators, is not whining about the limit of 10 participants at the first debate. She knows full well she is capable of making the cut and is not about to start grousing that others may be eliminated. Republicans should heed her example. If a candidate is a good debater (and it is hard to win unless you are), he or she does not want a crowd. The breakthrough moment for a candidate such as Fiorina may require more than a minute or two of air time. And if the candidates at the top of the polls never get put on the spot for very long, they are less likely to make a game-changing error. She does better with a 10-person debate.She no doubt is confident in her ability to rise in the polls because she is putting in time and connecting with voters in Iowa, acting like a viable contender, not a long-shot. Her punchy jabs at Hillary Clinton, business-like rhetoric and life experience including that applicable to national security are drawing big crowds. Conservative and mainstream media are giving her high marks. She is upbeat and refrains from criticizing Republican opponents.
