    At least the GOP can say they have a woman running. I can't see her getting any traction. She has zero personality and pretty much wrecked HP.

    So don't vote for her. Seems pretty simple.

    Is there a rule that you are the only one allowed to post snark?

    That wasn't snark; that was haughty sarcasm.

    Still no rules against haughty sarcasm not directed to a member here.

    I hope she does for the GOP what she did for HP.

    She'll be announcing on May 4th, the same date that one of the others is announcing and a day before Huckabee. Also, May 4th is the anniversary of the day she laid of 30,000 HP employees.

    from the "Stupid" link.

    she has a point, we discussed much of this in this forum, plenty of crops that use too much water & farmers with little regulation.

    aside from that she will not get anywhere, she did terrible here in CA IIRC.

    What point does she have? She points fingers at liberal environmentalists, not the lack of regulation. Completely ignoring facts laid out by the NOAA.

    I can just picture it now...

    4-sided ring, inside the some corporate-branded arena.

    Main event after some wrestling or boxing matches on the card.

    Tag-team match for the title of POTUS and vPOTUS.

    In one corner, just freshly off her hell-in-a-cell fatal-4-way match against Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, is Carly Fiorina, with her tag-team partner, Meg Whitman: The C.E.O. Connection! With their manager, at Ringside, Sarah Palin!

    In the other corner, having tasted victory before, but coming out of retirement for one more match, wanting to show the new blood how to kick it old school, accompanied by manager Kamala Harris.. "the Rod", HRC, with her tag-team partner, Lizzy "Borden" Warren!

    Since this is a women's match, you choose the ref: Judge Judy, or Judge Mills Lane. Falls count anywhere, so let's get it on!

    :p

    BL.

    Is it normal for idiots to get into positions of power in the US or something? Once CEO of HP and now maybe president. Crazy.

    Well, as a somewhat conservative leaning moderate I will not be picking her. I agree with you on the first few points. Remembering her track record at HP though is really what makes me say… no thank you.

    The last point does sound like the drought is somewhat a man made problem- maybe not because of environmentalists blocking reservoir construction, but rapid population increases, federal laws and also lack of funding, (not to mention mans alleged influence on climate change) aka Man. This all even assumes the extra construction would help- which seems to be controversial in itself. I think the point of the article was it's not a "liberal/democratic" made issue.

    Good point. Looks like she is the reason for most of HP's problems nowadays. Under her rule the HP stock price plummeted. Not that I'm saying running a company is anything like running a country, but it is still alarming.

    Any environmental problem can be associated to men. But the fact that she completely ignores the climate aspect of it to blame it all on liberals is what irks me.

    The headline is misleading is my point.

    As I stated before she did terribly at HP, I remember that much. Thanks to the member for posting the chart. Was it her or her successor that wanted to cease computer production? She doesn't have a chance with that record.

    But Carly is a woman, so it cannot be her fault.

    I bet she's gonna blame her loss on the "liberal war on women".

    Joe Arpaio will just blow another $25 million on the trip to her hometown to try to find it himself.
