Carly Fiorina seemed to have abandoned her candidate, Richard Mourdock, due to the rape comments he made last week. The Indiana Senate candidate was slammed by many Republicans after declaring that children resulting from rape are sent by God, the Inquisitr informs.
Carly Fiorina was forced to take sides with Mitt Romney after Richard Mourdock made an uninspired comment about rape-resulting pregnancies. The Indiana Senate candidate declared last week that pregnancies occurring as a result of rapes are, in fact, intended by God, so they should be accepted as such.
When asked what her opinion about Mourdock’s comments was, Fiorina chose to support Mitt Romney and to cast aside the other candidate. The former CEO of Hewlett Packard told the press that Richard said “a really stupid thing”, but his point of view is not shared by Mitt Romney, whose position on life is identical to that of Mourdock’s Democratic opponent.
By making this statement Romney is not giving up on his convictions; he simply considers that Richard’s opponent is less radical and, therefore, closer to his own point of view. In the end, Carly Fiorina provided a few reasons why Mitt Romney is so successful among women. In her opinion, Barack Obama’s opponent has shown a lot of interest in the areas that usually preoccupy women, such as, economy, children’s education and health care.
Speaking about the President, the vice chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee stated that Obama has failed to meet her expectations. The commander-in-chief promised to register a 4.2 economic growth and only two percent have been achieved instead. Fiorina doesn’t think the unemployment rate has diminished considerably; as a consequence, she believes other candidates could do a better job than the current President.
Barack Obama’s image was also affected by the recent attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya after the Secretary of Defense revealed that the President denied requests for help during the 7-hour attack. According to Carly Fiorina, such episodes clearly prove that the President has failed to deliver his promise.
