Carly Fiorina likens presidential politics to football

Carly Fiorina2Burlingame – Carly Fiorina broke out a football metaphor Saturday night to illustrate her ticket’s chances to win the the party’s nomination for president. 

Earlier this week, Texas Senator Ted Cruz announced the former Hewlett-Packard CEO as his prospective running mate, in an effort to grab headlines and the Golden State, where Fiorina once unsuccessfully ran for Senate.  

Mathematically, there aren’t enough delegates left for Cruz to shore up the nomination prior to the convention, but Team Cruz hopes to stop Trump from getting the required 1,237 delegates to win the nomination outright. 

Fiorina admitted she wasn’t a football expert, but knew enough to know the presidential race “ain’t” over, as she said pundits have suggested. 

“The 30-yard line ain’t a touchdown,” Fiorina said.

Trump has 997 pledged delegates, while Cruz only has 566. In total, there are 502 delegates up for grabs through the remaining contests, including California’s 172. Trump has a commanding lead in the Golden State at the moment, although there’s a lifetime (in politics) until the June 7 primary. 

The Indiana primary is on Tuesday, where 57 delegates are up for grabs. Cruz and business tycoon Donald Trump are virtually tied in the Real Clear Politics polling average. But a big win for Trump would all but guarantee the nomination. 

Fiorina also ran for the GOP presidential nomination, but dropped out in February after her campaign failed to gain traction. In 2010, she challenged Barbara Boxer for the Democrat’s U.S. Senate seat, losing by 10 points (by nearly 1 million votes). 

Because of the large number of delegates, California is seen as the last stand for those trying to stop Trump (although Cruz has been running for president about three months longer than Trump).

“This is a fight for the soul of our party and the future of our nation,” Fiorina said.

    If Figorina were prez the 1st person she said she’d call is Bibbi Nuttyyahoo. I’m sure she’d send his government even more of our tax money.

    She just represents more of the same globalism and New World Odor that has this country $20 trillion in debt. Why doesn’t she just hang out in her mansion and enjoy being filthy rich and leave the rest of us alone?

    People are sick of the New World Ordor and the globalists which is why Trump’s nationalism is appealing.

    And has anyone seen her without makeup? I doubt you’d even recognize her. Same with Hillary…

    The amazing power of makeup.

    Fiorina and Cruz can at the very least describe the Constitution and why it has enabled the greatest country on earth to thrive. Donald doesn’t have a clue and isn’t curious enough to educate himself.

    Wake up! This Hillary pal is conning you. His “best people” couldn’t figure out the delegate rules in GA and CO. The man is all hat and no cattle.

    Fio is “the” globalist who will have you begging on your knees and elbows for ration coupons for Skippy dog food and Chalupa sauce.

    Wise up….no wage increases in 16 years in real dollars for Comrades is a 50 percent cut while globalist make billions.

    Fiorina’s central problem is she has no ability and society has evolved way past the point where we needed to place women in positions of power so we could feel good about ourselves. Two X chromosomes and a vagina simply aren’t going to cut it anymore in the big leagues of politics and business. Young people understand this is strictly a baby boomer thing, much as Obama’s funky foreign name and mostly black appearance sent baby boomer progressives into kumbaya raptures. Unfortunately the last 7 years have shown big O to be a strictly by-the-book corporate globalist, no matter his skin tone. Think golf, Martha’s Vineyard…..Carly, with her ridiculous nose job, will be a fun sidekick for ‘Lucifer in the flesh’, but that gig will end at the convention. I predict Trump WILL be the GOP nominee.

    If Trump does only cuts government spending in real dollars four years running he will be the only face on Mt Rushmore

    Well, considering his sister holds a position as a senior appellate judge with the US Court of Appeals I would say Trump and his family probably know a little bit more the Carly and Ted do….
