Posted on 10/03/2013 6:41:23 PM PDT by SoConPubbie
Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO Northern California Republican who ran as a conservative to get the Republican Senate nomination in 2010, attacked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Wednesday, saying there was "no honor" in his fight to defund Obamacare.
Fiorina made her remarks just days after she joined the American Conservative Union, an establishment organization on the right that supports comprehensive immigration reform.
In an appearance on CNN's The Lead, Fiorina blamed the government shutdown on Cruz and implied that Republicans would have been better off waiving the white flag from the beginning on eliminating Obamacare.
"There's no honor in charging a hill that you know you can't take, only casualties, although Ted Cruz maybe got name recognition and money along the way," she said. "But President Obama wanted this shutdown. And Ted Cruz played right into his hands."
Fiorina said she felt "badly for [House Speaker] John Boehner" and emphasized that "this is Ted Cruz and President Obama's shutdown."
"Everybody could see this train wreck coming," Fiorina said.

Ted Cruz - Treacherous back-stabbing Carly Fiorina Ping!
If you want on/off this ping list, please let me know.
Please beware, this is a high-volume ping list!
Another RINO a-hole
Carly Fiorina - Just another traitor to conservatives everywhere!
The Republican insiders are using this to destroy Cruz before he becomes unstoppable.
We are so screwed.
My thoughts exactly.
"In an appearance on CNN's The Lead, Fiorina blamed the government shutdown on Cruz and implied that Republicans would have been better off waiving the white flag from the beginning on eliminating Obamacare."
Oh, she was on CNN so it's just another LSM Cruz bashing.
Glad this weakling didn’t become a Senator...proving once again there’s no difference between RINO’s (Fiorina) and Marxists (Boxer/DiFi).
Governor Palin endorsed Fiornia in 2010.
Another RINO comes out and this time fortunately before it was too late
Remember: Sarah Palin endorsed this RINO in a primary fight against a conservative.
How did pretending you were a Dem work for you last time Carly?
Pray America wakes up
No geat loss, then, that she lost to Dumbo Boxer. Why even act as if we have 2 parties?
“Hey Carly, it’s been really nice not hearing from you in some time so let’s keep it that way by you crawling back into your hole you stupid RINO!”
It just proves that McLAME and CO can't do it.
This is freaking awesome!
GO CRUZ !!!
Time for tea partiers to get under democrat skin. Rejuvenate the RAT party with conservative souls.
Get lost Carly, you are nothing but a has been RINO.
Doesn’t look like the ACU bothers with much vetting these days.
OH YEAH! The bitch that wrecked HP and then ran for the US Senate and lost!
Like we should give a shit what she thinks? Hey Carly, get back on your boat in the marina --- no one cares!
Carly’s IQ hasn’t increased any has it?
Says the multi-millionaire yuppie who ran Hewlett-Packard into the ground.
Ted Cruz attracts the best enemies. He’s doing it right!!
If they do, they are creating their own demise. This movement is the GOPs last chance before they become irrelevant. There will either be a conservative GOP or another conservative party.
I’ve said this before when freepers were hoisting Palin for the 2012 prez elections back in 2010. Everyone here was giving Palin a bulls-eye with the worship and enough time for the enemedia to throw missiles at her, and the same applies now to Cruz.
Everyone should keep their Cruz worship to a minimum until the primaries, or everyday the MSM will annihilate him.
Who cares what this loser thinks?
She endorsed that a POS McCain as well. Some of us will never, ever forget that.
>> Governor Palin endorsed Fiornia in 2010.
Water is wet.
Who did you prefer in that race?
God bless you Ted Cruz. Flushing the heretics out in the open.
Where was the honor in destroying HP?
I can't believe I actually defended this broad once for her term at Lucent.
The MSM will annihilate him no matter what we do, what shocks me is that the insiders within the Republican party are out for Cruz’s head.
Once again, for argument’s sake, proving it is conservatives who are open to differences in opinions and being practical in decision making. It is us who will still vote for the candidate even if they do not share all our views. Clearly a staunch conservative will not win a seat in CA. The argument is that Fiorina would have been clearly better than that witch Boxer. Of course, this action here against Cruz bring to the table whether it is better to let deep blue seats go to the lefties and fight for the moderate states and conservatives in very red states, rather than adding more white flag liberal Republicans into the discussion to muck up the works.
If I were to criticize one thing about Palin endorsements, it is that she too often goes with the female even when there are better candidates in the race. More often than not she gets it right, but she does place a very high value on supporting female candidates.
She endorsed Juan McLoser and Booby Hatch too.
This is the difference between the Dems and the Reps. You NEVER see a Dem bashing a sitting Dem senator. Ever.
Democrats have one enemy: Conservative republicans. Oh sure, maybe a liberal republican will aggravate them once in a while but they agree more often than not.
Conservative republicans have two enemies: Democrats and liberal republicans. It’s a toss up to say who’s worse.
I bet Sarah would like that endorsement back.
Carley, baby, the difference between Cruz and you is he WON and you didn’t. Why on earth would anyone pay any attention to a loser like you. You failed as a CEO and you failed as a senate candidate. Go take your bitter advice and try to peddle it to someone dumb enough to care.
It seems that even those Republican folks seem to believe that if they just get along with the socialists that they will survive. Well, maybe so but they are not part of any solution to the problem.
Just great, even Republican’s are worrying about their upcoming IRS interview. Who says that Government does not control output (isn’t that a Socialist view). Seems that the Government is winning here - again. Will take time to make folks understand that the Constitution is not just a document.
I posted it because you have another instance of Republican backstabbing.
You never try. Ergo you never win right? Surrender monkey. Two words for you: Ronald Reagan. He didn't win the first time either.
Let’s not let Carly do for the country what she did for HP - wreck it.
No wonder the rich bitch lost. Nobody likes her. The ACU ain’t what it used to be, and I know because I knew everyone of their leaders and talked to them on a regular basis.
Ted Cruz has guts and honor, something sadly lacking in the old GOP “conservative” movement.
The RINOS are “CRUZING FOR A BRUISING” in the upcoming elections, and I’m swinging a 2x4, not a large stick.
She made a mistake.
I'm sure on another thread somewhere you pointed out that Palin endorsed Cruz too, right.
.... My main fear is that the GOP has failed to put a face on this thing called "Obamacare." That thing which the socialist left is portraying as that nice shiny new gold ring on the merry-go-round that is there .... Just for the public's taking that will give them wonderfully affordable and practical healthcare for all manner of folks in this great country. The only thing standing between the freedom and peace loving needy public is the greedy hate mongering Republicans that are threatening to take that wonderful gem away from them.
.... The GOP has had almost five years to put a face on this monstrosity but have failed to effectively do so. The public does not by nature learn the drawbacks and evils of this Affordable Healthcare Act by osmosis ..... it has to be taught to them. We need to understand that there is no trickle down education as a result of extreme censoring of any negative imagery and information by the State controlled media aka ... the MSM. There is only one way to educate the public on this and that is through any kind of bully pulpit that the GOP can find. Time is now running out very quickly.
........ Unfortunately this would take some semblance of something called "Teamwork" which is in very short supply within the GOP .... the party that used to be considered the guardians of the United States Constitution.
> The MSM will annihilate him no matter what we do, what shocks me is that the insiders within the Republican party are out for Cruzs head.
Because he’s showing them how to do their job; the old guard doesn’t like someone making them look bad.
I remember her, I called her E-Carly I think
Another one pointing her hand full of bad endorsements. Nevermind the Ted Cruz endorsement for example.
Well, that’s it for me. If Carly says that Cruz is no good, I’m done with him.
Carly knows, folks, she knows.
Carly Fiorina, still crazy after all these years. Still trying to find something she can be competent at. Her problem is that she has been a poster child for the Peter Principle for years and years.
