Last night, when I heard Sean Hannity ask former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin what she would do to get the economy growing again, I hoped you would reply in the same manner as former HP CEO Carly Fiorina did when Greta van Susteren asked her a similar question.
In one minute (the segment runs from 0:54 to about 1:54), the California Republican Senatorial candidate identifies her priority (job creation), says what we need to do (go to the job creators) and provides a story which illustrates the problem which needs to be addressed (an innovator who found it easier to set up shop in Ukraine than in the Golden State). In short, she is saying, we need to remove regulations which make it difficult for entrepreneurs to create jobs in California.
I would expect that in future television appearances she will detail the legislation she would support to streamline regulation.
With unemployment the big issue on people’s minds, Carly Fiorina is talking exactly how Republicans should be talking, reminding us that big government impedes job creation. And she did it all in under a minute (considering that Greta was talking for part of that time).
I trust this video will show why I’m so bullish on Carly. She has barely announced her candidacy for the Senate and she has demonstrated an ability to succinctly articulate conservative solution to our nation’s problems. Let’s hope she can retain her poise and eloquence in less friendly exchanges.
