Skip to comments.Fiorinaís record at HP defines her candidacy ó which could be a problem
Posted on 09/26/2015 6:38:38 PM PDT by jimbo123
At a polished New York press announcement in 2001, Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina, then the most powerful woman in American business, unveiled an immensely risky mega-merger whose success she promised with her signature showmanship: If you dont believe it, watch.
But 3 1 / 2 years later, after HP had shed half its market value and slashed more than 30,000 jobs amid what rivals called the dumbest deal of the decade, Fiorina was quietly fired from her first and still only job as a CEO. She succumbed to a brutal battle with the founders families, a worker uprising and, ultimately, what she called a boardroom brawl.
In the end, the board did not have the courage to face me, Fiorina wrote in her 2006 memoir, Tough Choices. They did not thank me and they did not say goodbye.
Now a rising star in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, Fiorina, 61, has pointed to her leadership of the printer and computer giant to showcase her corporate savvy and courage under fire. She has blamed the dot-com bust, sexism and an ineffective board of directors for helping sink what was then a global juggernaut.
But in interviews with more than two dozen former HP senior directors and employees, many remember Fiorinas legacy as troubling and divisive: A high-energy marketer, she nevertheless failed to deliver on lofty promises, alienated her workforce and presided over a disastrous reign at what was once a Silicon Valley pioneer.

Fiorina opposition research report
Here is the 218-page opposition research report on Carly Fiorina compiled by political research firm Gragert Jones for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in April 2010.
You don’t understand.
She has a vagina.
If I had the money Id. Create ads using the former Lucent and HD employees and plaster the airways until she dropped out
Her whole basis for running is that she is a complete failure at everything she has done..
“- - - has pointed to her leadership of the printer and computer giant to showcase her corporate savvy and courage under fire.”
She’s showcasing her absolute failure. She must really think voters are stupid (they did elect obama twice).
Plus the fact she’s a RINO when the voters are fed up with RINO’s.
I kinda think her popularity has more to do with her gender as much the same obama’s popularity had to do with his color.
I’m glad the MSM is starting to trash her.
Horse face is at a solid 7% . She has now been exposed as a total fraud. She is finished, I assure you.
“But in interviews with more than two dozen former HP senior directors and employees, many remember Fiorinas legacy as troubling and divisive: A high-energy marketer, she nevertheless failed to deliver on lofty promises, alienated her workforce and presided over a disastrous reign at what was once a Silicon Valley pioneer.”
Might just as well say that Her Thighness’ time in the White House during Bubba’s Extra Curricular activities in the Oral Office define her potential reign as Queen of the U.S.
May Be Found Not Qualified For The Job Of President
As compared to world renown management expert and financial guru Barack Obama who never managed anything more complicated than firing up a doobie and lying on his application for college.
Actually, since this is the Wash ComPost writing about a Republican candidate, I’m inclined to regard her with MORE favor than I did before reading this article.
Normally I would say that's a badge of honor but it is true and Fox continues to push her on her as the big winner
Her current standings in the polls reflects her TV performance.....most folks havent “looked” at her record yet.
Unfortunately we live in sound bytes cycles. And of course we have
experts” to tell us what we hear...LOL
Anyone who is still a Carly Fiorina fan for President, is either a moron or is a moron, as this pro Islamic, Common Core, man hating, Bushbot has revealed exactly what she is, a Jeb Bush intelligence stooge to please angry women and keep support away from Donald Trump.
Now comes this story from the Daily Beast in what kind of person Carly Fiorina really is to her employees and staff........no not the Hewlett Packard employees and staff she fired, but her California 2010 staff and employees she screwed over.
Over the next four years, the Carly for California campaign pushed its debts back month after month after month, year after year. As Fiorina and her husband relocated to a multimillion-dollar Virginia estate and campaign treasurers came and went, - the vendors and staff remained unpaid, - including the widow of a close adviser who had died suddenly during her Senate bid.
Only as Fiorina began to publicly consider launching a presidential campaign in 2015 did she pay off her 2010 debts, quietly writing a personal check for $487,410 to finally pay the outstanding bills and close the Carly for California campaign.
Three months later, Carly for President launched, quickly raising $1.4 million for Fiorinas presidential bid. But unlike Carly for California, the new campaign is making do without her personal fortune. So far, she and her husband, Frank, have given $2,700 each, the maximum allowed for any average donor.
These people would still not be paid, if it had not been for Fiorina running for President. - Yes like all the richtards stealing from this blog, sitting in mansions, there was Carly Fiorina as an intelligence asset, moving to posh Virginia, while people who believed in her could not pay the bills.
Yes nothing like screwing over the widow of someone who was your close adviser, as what is she going to do with money any way, now that her husband is dead and not earning a living.
I will state this again, Carly Fiorina like Ben Carson, are two left wing strawpoles set up to dilute the election, as they gnaw on Donald Trump for Jeb Bush, to look innocent, - and once that is done, Bush will light a match to these two moles - and steal another election.
None of this is making it on Drudge either. What comes next in this, 10 million dollar man Ben Carson, not paying his Latino maids, because his dog needs a million dollar manicure?
The picture say it all, Carly Fiorina cuddling with globalist Henry Kissinger and having the best time ever with the Jesse Jackson who used to spit in white peoples soup for a political statement.
“She has blamed the dot-com bust, sexism and an ineffective board of directors for helping sink what was then a global juggernaut.”........
Yep, a page right out of the Clinton’s playbook, blame your failures on someone else. Throw it against the wall enough times and eventually it, or some of it will stick.
Fiorina has NO BUSINESS being POTUS.
