Carly Fiorina Attacks Cruz: 'No Honor' in Fight to Defund Obamacare
Brietbart.com ^ | 3 Oct 2013, 7:43 AM PDT | Tony Lee

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.

"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

 

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

 

"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792

 

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

 

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Oh, she was on CNN so it's just another LSM Cruz bashing.

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.

So?

What's your point?

Do you study human behavior at all?

Either Governor Palin didn't know this creep as well as she thought she did, or more than likely Carly hid who she really was effectively.

Either way, why bring Governor Palin into the mix?

Don't be a Jack-Ass!

You don't think every politician hasn't endorsed someone who might have looked at the time to be better than they were or even out of obligation or honor?

And to hold that against her with the overwhelming good she has done for the GOP and the Tea-Party is just infantile.

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.

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.

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 actually supported Palin's decision to endorse Carly, from a strategic perspective. Campbell was a pro-RINO douchebag and the conservative didn't have a prayer. It made sense for Palin to endorse Fiorina, who campaigned as a center-right Republican.

I posted it because you have another instance of Republican backstabbing.

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.

"Carly Fiorina Attacks Cruz: 'No Honor' in Fight to Defund Obamacare..."

.... 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.
