When we last left Carly Fiorina, she was explaining how liberal policies have actually been worse for women, regardless of what the left or the media claims. I’m sure you’re asking yourselves now, “But Crowder, surely liberal policies are better for African Americans, right? Because if you told me that wasn’t true…I wouldn’t know what to believe in anymore. I would be dead inside.”
Well, hold onto your butts, because the Conservative honey badger is about to scratch your eyes out…
“African-American youth unemployment, for example, is worse now under Obama. More women have fallen into poverty under President Obama. We have record numbers of Americans on food stamps, record numbers of Americans who cannot find the jobs they want. Progressive policies are failing. In a state like California, where I lived for 12 years, the income inequality gap is vast. 100 plus billionaires, and the highest poverty rates in the nation. So, one of the things we have to understand is that when, for example, you press on seniority systems, which reward time-in-grade, not contribution, you are disadvantaging women, just as one example. When you have programs that discourage people from moving forward in their lives, you are harming women and poor communities. When you have Planned Parenthood, just to pick that, which is an organization that has preyed on, preyed on, poor communities of color, that is a problem. In New York City, where you’re sitting today, there are more African-American babies aborted every year than born alive. That’s a terrible thing for the African-American community.”
Polls show Americans are looking for an outsider to be our next President. Now I know some of you will argue this of course, but with Carly Fiorina, we have an outsider who is tight on the issues, doesn’t get tripped up by the press, and most importantly, isn’t a crazy person.
Nobody is perfect. Carly Fiorina has some serious issues for which she’ll need to answer. However, on this question, she handled the press with the kind of aplomb not seen by any other candidates thus far. I want to see more of this, and I would murder a lion to see her debate Joe Biden.
