Video: Carly Fiorina ends the War on Women

posted at 5:01 pm on July 6, 2014 by Jazz Shaw

When it comes to the Sunday morning talking heads festivals, I tend to jump around a bit these days. And even with the slim pickings available, one of the ones I rarely seem to wind up watching is State of the Union on CNN with Candy Crowley. Generally it’s only on my television if I’m watching CNN for the overnight highlights and am too busy or lazy to change the channel at 9 o’clock. But that’s what happened today and I’m rather glad I did. The subject at hand was the never ending War on Wimminz being perpetrated by the evil Republican Party, but the guest was Carly Fiorina, former CEO of HP.

Most of this should be common sense for the majority of you, but I’ve rarely seen anyone deconstruct nonsense so quickly and efficiently. Transcript follows the video, courtesy of Tim Cavanaugh at The Corner.

“A lot of women, me included, are sick of the ‘war on women,’” the former Hewlett-Packard CEO and California Republican candidate for U.S. Senate. “And we saw it in spades on Monday after the Hobby Lobby case. The women of Hobby Lobby had access to contraception through their company insurance plan before Obamacare; they have access to contraception — 16 forms of it — after the ruling. But somehow, you know, this is the long arm of business and the Republican Party reaching into the body of women. It’s ridiculous.”

Fiorina then pulled out a fortune she said she’d received recently in a fortune cookie.

“‘Strong and bitter words indicate a weak cause,’” Fiorina read. “And that’s exactly right. The War On Women is shameless, baseless propaganda. There’s no fact to it. But it’s worked because it’s scared women to death. Enough.”

I particularly liked the fortune cookie schtick. It fit in well with the signal to noise ratio of the discussion and certainly made for at least as reliable a source as Fiorina’s liberal debate partners. Enjoy.

Fortune cookie wisdom is too deep for the left, she should have gone with a bumper sticker.

She’s a RINO, a lousy CEO and an even lousier Senate candidate but she banged it out of the park this time. Too bad no one will ever see her statement again; the media will take care of that.

gophergirl on July 6, 2014 at 5:12 PM

BTW, not to put too fine a point on it but how weak does a woman have to be to be scared by rhetoric?

Seriously, I don’t know a single female who fell for the fake war on women. In fact, most of them think it’s the feminazis that are waging a war on women.

platypus on July 6, 2014 at 5:13 PM

It still would have been better coming from Senator Carly Florina of California.

My favorite three bumper stickers off the top of my head:

(In ’79 when he was running for the Democrat POTUS nomination): “More people have died in Ted Kennedy’s car than in nuclear power plants.”

(In the ’90′s during Bubba & Killary’s reign): “Legalize Freedom!”

(Last year): “ObamaCare: Death and Taxes, now in one convenient package …”

..so do I. She was a far better senatorial candidate than most gave her credit for. While most here tarred her as a RINO she was arguably (literally) head and shoulders above that stone-dunce runt, Babs Box-o-rocks — even with the latter standing wearing 5″ Jimmy Choos and standing on a stool.

The War Planner on July 6, 2014 at 5:27 PM

I have been waiting for someone to speak the truth. THANK YOU CARLY!!!!

16/20 forms of contraception should be plenty to choose from. As a women, I am deeply offended by the Dems/progs assumption that I’m too stupid to get contraception on my own, or too lazy to find a way to afford it or too weak to insist my partner be a part of the decision and cost.

I don’t think most women feel much different, except the feminazis and kool aid drinkers. Those of us that are mature, intelligent and responsible are not being fooled by the drama and hysterics on the fake war on women.

OmahaConservative on July 6, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Connie XI: I worked at HP for 10 years, at the part that became Agilent. I left before Carly took over but still had a lot of friends at the company including women who were thrilled when she became CEO and then ended up hating her like everybody else. The one thing I will say not quite as a defense is that I don’t think she ran amok on her own but was doing the bidding of the BoD, especially longtime HP backroom man Dick Hackborn.

OT for most of the posters here, I know. PS, Connie, I always enjoy your comments here (hope you don’t mind me calling you Connie).

Nice analysis, Joe.

I was a CA resident at the time and was very frustrated with her soft performance when interviewed on various talk radio programs I listened to. [I imagine those idiot consultants they hire -- I never would if I ran for office -- told her it was the only way to appeal to the squishy middle or something.]

I knew CA was toast for good when all the RINO pundits in the state stuck a knife in Tom McClintock (not electable, don’t you know?) and called for R’s to support “the electable”, pathetic, Kennedy-in-low, loser Schwarzenneger as Governor …

Polls taken after the statewide televised debate with all the candidates had McClintock winning the debate overwhelmingly by ALL groups, R’s, I’s, and even D’s!

But the national and state GOPe and R pundits convinced most of the idiots that Tom wasn’t electable and they needed to vote for Ahnold …

Why would anybody appear on, let alone watch, a show hosted by the disgustingly discredited Candy Cowley?

Funny you should ask. I just now saw her make a similar appearance on Uma Pemmaraju from yesterday in a clip called Fighting The So-Called War On Women.

She makes a great case that not only is the “War On Women” stupid and disgusting, but it worked because we didn’t push back hard enough or with enough “women’s voices.” She is on a campaign to travel the country to train candidates how to better counter this. And going on CNN is a great idea. What good does it do to only preach to the choir? Especially when she can hold her own so well on this topic.

ncinca on July 6, 2014 at 6:47 PM

It works on single women very well. They are prone to blame men for their problems.

Not that single men are anything to brag about, but their stupidity tends to boil down to foolish choices that hurt themselves and a few others. Single women manifest their foolishness by voting for Democrats, and hurt the whole freaking world.

Also the scare tactics work with poor minorities, who also want to blame their conditions on someone else, preferably rich white Republican men (and never rich white Democrats like Soros, Bill Clinton, Ezra Klein, or John Kerry).

Very fair point, ncinca. It’s definitely an excellent issue to fight back on, and I appreciate Carly for doing so.

My comment was more of a complaint about known deceivers and liars having platforms — and those (who watch and appear with them) enabling and providing credibility for them.

I personally refuse to listen to or read words written by known deceivers and liars (meaning I have few to choose from these days), and don’t understand why more folks aren’t like me …

“I respect you very much as a woman for your accomplishments,” Miller snarked in response. “I even read that you studied medieval history, which I think will come in handy with trying to defend the Republican war on women.”

Miller noted that every woman she knew was “furious about he Hobby Lobby decision.”

“This is not just a war against women, this is a war against science, Carly,” the radio host explained.

“Oh, for heaven sakes,” Fiorina gasped.

“These religious people believe certain drugs cause abortions, doctors and scientists say they do not,” Miller continued. “They prevent abortion… I have friends who need it for endometriosis. How do you say you’re small government, and get the government involved in those personal decisions between a woman and her doctor?”

US company ‘signs $1.175b Iran bio-energy deal’
AFP
July 5, 2014, 9:19 pm
**********************

Tehran (AFP) – A US company has signed a preliminary agreement to invest $1.175 billion (864 million euros) in Iran, in a rare joint commercial project to turn rubbish and human waste into electricity.

California-based World Eco Energy told AFP it plans to produce 250 megawatts daily by burning trash and by processing algae and salt and waste water into power.

Iran will match the US investment, the company said.

A company spokesman said the project, in the southwestern province of Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari, would create 600-700 jobs, 80 percent of which would go to locals.

It is scheduled to start in September 2014 and is an early indication of the foreign business that may flow back to Iran if US, European and UN sanctions are lifted.

Iran is in the final phase of negotiating with world powers about a conclusive deal to resolve international concern about its nuclear programme.

Despite the uncertainty that clouds Iran’s economy, still shut out of the international financial system because of an embargo on banks and the energy sector, a more positive outlook is starting to prevail.

Carly Fiorina – The Mitt Romney of California

Ned Pepper on July 6, 2014 at 7:28 PM

Clearly election results indicate extremely powerful intellects.

Californians voted for the High Speed Train to Nowhere and then cried when they realized it wasn’t high speed and wouldn’t actually go anywhere.

California now has unfunded pension liabilities of almost a trillion dollars, even though the budget is about $108 billion. Entire cities now have no fire departments or police departments.

California will re-elect Jerry Brown, one of the most dishonest politicians in American history.

Choosing Boxer over Fiorina shows how brilliant we are here. Soon we’ll be made an honorary member of the Third World, and everyone will glow with the warmth of Über-morality.

My brother just got back from San Francisco. He said that entire blocks are inhabited with screaming, vomiting, urinating, defecating, panhandling homeless people. At night they bring out the power washers to spray down the sidewalks, just like the workers in Westworld repairing the day’s mayhem.

Fiorina’s loss does indeed reflect the intelligence of the average Californian voter–which is why I’m moving to Texas as soon as we settle our parents’ estates.

When we cross the border, we’ll stop and give our regards to California the way Anthony Edwards did to East Berlin in Gotcha!

No war has been ended.

And that war never ends.

War against socialism, communism, dictators, and islam.

War against “progressives”.

We have so many enemies.

Sherman1864 on July 7, 2014 at 2:50 AM

I have stated this heresy previously and will repeat it here.

There is a significant percentage of the female population who are exemplars of the Weaker Sex; they require decision making to be taken care of by a patriarchal figure; they are content to think, act and vote as they are told.

In the past, these women could trust that they would be taken care of by fathers and husbands, but now that progressives have done such Trojan work in dismantling these traditional structures, the Weaker Sex is relying on Uncle Sugar to fulfill that role.

Bereft of a natural family structure within which to thrive, they are bewildered by why happiness eludes them and are quite willing to blame the targets Proggies tell them are the cause of their misery.

I am well aware that implying (some) women are weaker, more feckless or less capable than their sisters or brothers is a sin against Helen Reddy (I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar) but a fairly long life has allowed me to observe that the stereotype of the Bubble-head Barbie is a stereotype only because its often true.

I’ve also noted that women who are fully adult and capable tend to resist the Not My Fault! lines and have a conservative outlook, so perhaps we’re seeing our gender divided bilaterally into Useless-Female Dems and Strong Conservative Women.

“Strong and bitter words indicate a weak cause” actually was on bumper sticker. It was just distilled down to: Obama/Biden 2012

My favorite three bumper stickers off the top of my head:

(In ’79 when he was running for the Democrat POTUS nomination): “More people have died in Ted Kennedy’s car than in nuclear power plants.”

(In the ’90′s during Bubba & Killary’s reign): “Legalize Freedom!”

(Last year): “ObamaCare: Death and Taxes, now in one convenient package …”

Oh, I have one that beats those AND is Californian in origin.

1982 ~ I’m a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps, heading through the parking lot of Navy Regional Medical Center Long Beach for an ultrasound. In a handicap spot close to the building was an ancient brown Pinto, positively wallpapered with Vietnam, political etc. bumper stickers and flying the American flag. One caught my eye and I howled out loud:

If it’s BROWN, FLUSH IT

Some things NEVER go out of fashion…

My favorite part was the end where the despicable Candy Crowley’s high-pitched cartoon voice is heard, “Lemme…” *click* ha ha ha ha ha, because that’s where I click off too.
