Skip to comments.Sarah Palin: Letís shake it up in California! (Sarah endorses Carly Fiorina - Huh?)
Posted on 05/06/2010 12:29:51 PM PDT by FightforFreedomCA
Id like to tell you about a Commonsense Conservative running for office in California this year. She grew up in a modest home with a school teacher dad, worked her way through several colleges, and then entered an arena where few women had tread. Through a combination of hard work, perseverance, and common sense, she proved the naysayers wrong to reach the top of her field, where she led with distinction facing hard truths, making tough decisions, and showing real leadership through a rocky transition period. Where others had failed, her company had weathered the storm and settled on a stronger new foundation.
Her name is Carly Fiorina, and Im proud to endorse her for U.S. Senate.
Carly is the Commonsense Conservative that California needs and our country could sure use in these trying times. Most importantly, shes running for the right reasons. She has an understanding that is sorely lacking in D.C. Shes not a career politician. Shes a businesswoman who has run a major corporation. She knows how to really incentivize job creation. Her fiscal conservatism is rooted in real life experience. She knows that when government grows, the private sector shrinks under the burden of debt and deficits. We can trust Carly to do the right thing for Americas economy and to make the principled decisions she has throughout her professional career.
Please consider that Carly is the conservative who has the potential to beat Californias liberal senator, Barbara Boxer, in November. Im a huge proponent of contested primaries, so Im glad to see the contest in Californias GOP, but I support Carly as she fights through a tough primary against a liberal member of the GOP who seems to bear almost no difference to Boxer, one of the most leftwing members of the Senate. Carly needs our support in this crucial election year when we have a real chance of putting an end to the Pelosi/Reid Big Government agenda.
I hope youll join me in supporting Carly. Visit her website here, and follow her on Facebook and Twitter. Read up on her positions and plans to help get us on the right track.
California is still Reagan Country, and Carly promises her Reagan Conservative values will be put to good use for her state and for our great nation. Shaking it up in California is long overdue. Lets help Carly do it!
- Sarah Palin
I’m dissapointed in this one. Should have gone with DeVore.
Sarah is way off base here.
Didn’t Carly run the McCain campaign in 2008?
Looking at the Big picture....need to pick the battles!
We have to win...these are people that can win....what is the alternative????????????
Sarah Palin is shooting herself in the foot again.
She is not considered part of the TEA movement is she?
Her one weakness is that she’s a Republican. She puts the party before her conservatism.
I like DeVore a lot but I don’t think he stands a chance of winning. I haven’t seen one DeVore ad here, not one. Only Whitman and Poizner(Over and over again unfortunately) if you read her statement carefully, she clearly states she is going with the candidate that has the best chance of defeating Boxer..Fiorina might have the best chance
McCain adviser Fiorina: Palin not ready to run a corporation
CNN ^ | September 16, 2008
Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO turned top John McCain aide, said she doesn’t think Sarah Palin is qualified to run a major corporation. For that matter, Fiorina said, McCain, Obama and Biden aren’t capable of that kind of job either.
So. Vote for Chuck anyway! Typical GoP to squander its support potential on moderates.
Sarah has some ‘splaining to do.. Maybe she needs to kick the McCain legacy to the curb and get onboard with DeMint instead of oppose him..
You know who I back in that case. ;-)
With RINO endorsements like this it tells me she is picking the sure RINOs annointed by the GOP alleged leaders.
They have palin on a short leash. He only flex is on races the GOP does not care about.
We heard that with Crist, Spectre, Jeffords, Scozzafava et al
That has been tried and fail.
Please consider that Carly is the conservative who has the potential to beat Californias liberal senator, Barbara Boxer, in November.
Right or wrong, here is the reason she did it. Maybe she believes in deep blue areas, RINO is better than Liberal.
“Well, I don’t think John McCain could run a major corporation, I don’t think Barack Obama could run a major corporation, I don’t think Joe Biden could run a major corporation,” Fiorina said.
“It is a fallacy to suggest that the country is like a company. So, of course, to run a business, you have to have a lifetime of experience in business, but that’s not what Sarah Palin, John McCain, Joe Biden or Barack Obama are doing.”
DeVore is the only logical choice. Palin loses credibility again.
How has that benefited the nation?
Party over values is a losing position.
Yikes. Bob, you are right. Palin is RINOing out more every second.
Polls say otherwise.. almost anyone that had backing of the Gop could beat Boxer.. yet the party bigwigs always back the ‘pragmatic’ candidate and try to sell it to the base as the best we can get.
It’s apparent Sarah is trying to pick a winning horse.
Well, I'll take Carly over Barbara Boxer ANY day. I'm afraid Chuck Devore has so little name recognition, that it would guarantee Boxer a win. Sorry FightforFreedomCA, I'm firmly with Sarah on this one.
Most of the politicans do. That’s one giant problem in this country right now.
RINO is liberal.
The McCain endorsement, fund raiser and campaigning didn’t already disappoint you?
People don’t understand that concept.
Palin is unraveling.
What’s your desired path to citizenship Sarah?
What was Devore’s latest poll number? Unless he was clearly out of it, I disagree with this one.
Hmm, weird, it’s almost as if, maybe, just maybe, this person who’s been in politics for only a few years, just maybe, there’s more to Palin than we originally thought? Endorsing McCain, endorsing Fiorina?
Hmm, birds of a feather...
Juts becuz you don;t see them doesn’t mean they don’t exist, they do.. Trust me.
Chuck is the real deal. why buy into more gristled moderate? it’s bad enough Kirk and Castle will likely go into the Senata as Rinos. why do we need to send carly when with party support , chuck can get it done.
The primary will tell. endorsements are not votes. We’ll see. :-)
I like Newt. He has the experience and foresight we need for president. Name anyone even close that has any chance?
There is a difference between a RINO in blue areas and a RINO in purple or red areas.
I tried to tell you but you wouldn’t listen. Sarah is not the conservative you think she is. Her enthusiastic support for McCain should have convinced you.
Agreed. DeVore is not well known enough to win in California. Fiorina is going to have a tough time winning there as well.
Californians aren’t going to vote for a straight-up conservative any more.
This line of reasoning makes me so damned angry I would spit nails.
“Let’s don’t fight this battle, we can’t win.” “No this battle simply doesn’t look right.” “Oh I wish we could fight this battle, but no, we can’t win this one.” “Well, it would be nice to win a battle, but we can’t win these kind of battles.” “Wow, it sure would be great to remove the RINOs. This just isn’t the time.”
For C’s sake, when do you folks plan on taking a stand, when we’ve been pushed out of our end zone? If we listen folks like you, our nation will be gone ten years before you’ll agree it’s time to engage in a battle.
Nothing against what I consider to be a nice person, but please get behind some of the right people will ya. Otherwise nothing is EVER going to change.
I don’t know a lot about Carly but have seen her on several shows and like her. Don’t know anything about DeVore.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Okay sparky, if not a Liberal, what exactly is a RINO?
I am amazed at times at the people who don’t understand this.
Carly is a RINO.
