3 things you should know about Carly Fiorina before she announces her bid for the presidency

Good Day World!

It’s about time a woman has cast (or will soon) a hat into the GOP primary for president.

Former technology executive Carly Fiorina says she is more than 90 percent likely to seek the Republican presidential nomination.

Here’s 3 things you should know about her:

1) The Los Angeles Times noted that Fiorina has conservative positions on certain social issues. She personally opposed abortion and, as a private citizen, stated that she voted for Proposition 8, which defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman, overturning a court ruling that same-sex couples had a right to marry.

2) Fiorina has called climate change a "serious issue" but claimed that the science surrounding global warming is inconclusive, saying "I think we should have the courage to examine the science on an ongoing basis."

She also accepted large contributions from the coal industry as well as Koch Industries and opposed the cap and trade legislation supported by Boxer.

3) In 2008, Fiorina worked for Senator John McCain's presidential campaign. On September 3, 2008, Fiorina defended the selection of Sarah Palin as McCain's running mate. Yet, in response to questions about her during a radio interview, she stated that Palin lacks the experience to run a major company like Hewlett-Packard, "…but that's not what she's running for.”

Running a corporation is a different set of things." Fiorina later amended her comment, stating that none of the candidates on either ticket had the experience to run a major corporation.

That’s about it. A mixed bag to be sure. There’s certainly very little buzz about her right now. Perhaps by the time she announces her candidacy we’ll get an opportunity to learn more about what she currently stands for.

Based upon her past politics and corporation ties, I think it’s apparent she’s already sleeping with such luminaries as the Koch brothers; which doesn’t speak well for her character, or intentions. 

Time for me to walk on down the road…
