Notable Quotes from Carly Fiorina

One can’t deny that the 2016 GOP race is very exciting to watch. It promises to be a memorable one as the list narrows down for the Whitehouse. Besides Donald Trump, who is dominating the race--Carly Fiorina has stepped up with grit and in the polls. Despite a poor business record as chief executive at Hewlett-Packard, Fiorina struck a chord with women voters from humble beginnings as a secretary, and calling out big government. “You know this: our government has grown so big, so powerful, so costly, so complex, so corrupt, the weight of the government of this nation is crushing the potential of this nation.”

"When men cut jobs, they're seen as decisive. When women do, they're vindictive."

Thoughts on Donald Trump

No Regrets
