The Truly Incompetent
My question: How does anything Carly Fiorina has ever done qualify her to speak credibly about anything having to do with politics or economics? Let's see. She ran Hewlett-Packard into the ditch. She moved on to advise the losing McCain campaign, becoming in the process a promoter of the self-promoting Sarah Palin. She then ran for Senate in California, losing by double digits. This, politely, is a record of abject failure. Yet there's Carly, holding forth on This Week as though anyone should care what she has to say.
I'm confident that I could go out to the TOPS in Hamlin and get similar and less ill- informed views from my neighbors. Network TV is pathetic in affording a forum to the truly incompetent. You might think Krugman is an ideologue - you'd be wrong. Regardless, at least he is accomplished in his chosen field of endeavor. Carly Fiorina?
