It seems that the Republican Party realizes that to be successful they need to be more inclusive of minorities and women. The problem is that by identifying candidates who are female or Black, and incompetent, liars, Republicans prove that they have so few women and Blacks in their party, that the only ones who are foolish enough to align themselves with the Republicans are both ignorant and incompetent. Consider for example:
What’s the Taliban?
False Allegations-never sexually harassed anyone.
Actually DID harass women
Then there is Ben Carson:
There was Sarah Palin:
The incredibly bad thing is that women and blacks who are Republican, and who have, or are running office, don’t have enough self-awareness to realize that they are being used by the GOP!
Carly Fiorina wasn’t even popular enough to make the cut for the first Republican Debate. During the second debate she was invited to participate. However the rules of the debate were conspicuously silent about the requirement that the candidates tell the truth. Fiorina made an impassioned speech about atrocities she claimed were committed by Planned Parenthood. She attacked Clinton and Obama for tolerating the abortion of a live fetus, with its heart beating,and its leg moving. The purported reason for watching the baby die was to harvest its brain.
After much attention and fact checking, it is clear that Fiorina not only stretched the truth, but she told an outrageous lie. As it turns out, the fetus in question was not an aborted fetus, but a still-born infant. The grief stricken mother who made the video as a final tribute to her dying child, did not have an abortion. She had a still-born baby. The mother never gave permission to the anti-choice advocates to use the film. Imagine the shock and horror when the mother realized that this film had been used for political reasons. The film did not depict any patient or fetus at any Planned Parenthood clinic. The mother of this fetus had not consented to any portion of the fetus being used or harvested for any reason, and in fact no part was harvested. Instead of respecting life, and this mother’s right to privacy, the anti-choice advocates disregarded the moral imperative and used this video to promote their agenda. It was an atrocious misuse and deception promoted by “pro-life” groups.
Multiple news sources determined that the assertions by Fiorina were false.
After the hearing before Congress the President of Planned Parenthood stood her ground when attacked on the House floor.
Even Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz determined that the assertions against Planned Parenthood were false.
“After months of hurling vile slander and gruesome accusations at Planned Parenthood, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) announced that his investigation of the beleaguered healthcare provider has, predictably, turned up no wrongdoing of any sort. During a judiciary committee meeting, he admitted that “did I look at the finances and have a hearing specifically as to the revenue portion and how they spend? Yes. Was there any wrongdoing? I didn’t find any.”
After the second debate, Fiorina jumped in the polls from 3% of the vote to 10%. That was the single largest change following the second debate.
Now that people have had time to consider the multitude of lies of Fiorina and the lies told in Congress, Fiorina’s popularity is dropping. Within two weeks following the second debate, her popularity has declined to 6%. Her heart may still be beating, and her legs still kicking, but let’s hope that her popularity declines as rapidly as the life she attempted to use for political gain.
Whether they read in the bathroom or the boardroom, Hillary has sent Republicans reading material.
Hillary didn’t send a copy to Sarah Palin. Maybe Hillary is still waiting on Sarah to tell us what she reads.
Maybe Hillary thought her book would be too difficult for Sarah.
John Boehner, the Speaker of the House for a little longer, and fellow Republican, called Cruz a Jack Ass.
