US News & World Report: "Fiorina's Rise Has Just Begun" (headline buries the report's conclusion)

"Does this mean Fiorina's headed towards winning the GOP nomination? Probably not. It's been centuries since a non-politician, non-military hero has won a major political party's presidential nomination."

1. She's risen from flat-lined to 6 percent! Wow.

Failurina will drop like a stone once people start actually looking at her business record.

5. Fiorina has definitely mismanaged more companies into the ground and killed off more jobs that Palin

8. Good point. Plus, she can't see jackshit from her house (so no Russian foreign policy experience)

12. Best joke of the entire campaign 2008:

 

"Hello Todd, this is George Bush."

"Hello Mr. president. Good to hear from you."

"I thought I would give you a call. Where are you guys?"

"In Missouri, Mr. President. For the debates."

"But if you are in Missouri, who is watching Russia?"

4. another look at how well she did! PS she can't win story: "Why Carly Fiorina Is Rising in the Polls"

What her little boomlet says about the Republican electorate isn’t particularly meaningful unless it is combined with two other interesting developments in these early months of the campaign—namely, the Trump phenomenon and the advance in poll numbers enjoyed by neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Neither Trump nor Carson will become president, and neither will Fiorina. But it’s interesting to note that the two men have no political experience at all, and Fiorina’s only political background consisted of a quixotic senatorial run in California against a three-term incumbent—which she lost in something approaching a landslide. In other words, her political career thus far has been a failure.

6. She comes off as SO plastic and rehearsed. Was she an actress or something?

 

It's like she throws out these Molotov cocktails as trial balloons ("it's not offshoring; it's RIGHT-shoring!", seeing how people react, and then recalibrates as necessary for maximum impact.
