Don’t Quote Me

I’m not sure what the point is of considering Carly Fiorina as a serious candidate for president — or why NPR seems to be slobbering all over her — but if she is, she needs to remember what she’s said so that when she gets called out on it, she can at least come up with a plausible response.

Via Right Wing Watch:

Fiorina displayed her signature truthiness once again in an interview Friday with Iowa conservative radio host Jan Mickelson, who asked her to defend her statement that Supreme Court decisions like Obergefell v. Hodges are “the law of the land,” which he said would turn off voters in Iowa.

Fiorina insisted that she had never said that, speculating, “I think that is a quote from someone else, not from me,” and suggesting that Mickelson might be thinking of her Republican rival John Kasich. [Emphasis in original]

Except she did:

I think the Supreme Court ruling will become the law of the land, and however much I may agree or disagree with it, I wouldn’t support an amendment to reverse it.

Unless John Kasich has mastered the skill of long distance ventriloquism (or he likes doing drag as “Carly”), she said it.  So why lie about it?

5 barks and woofs on “Don’t Quote Me

  1. Interesting she blamed our beloved governor for saying she said what she said. He’s beginning to look like the only normal clown in the car.

  2. Why lie about it? Because she thinks she’s playing to an audience who watch Short Attention Span Theatre. As for Kasich, I have long said that if he survives the primaries he would be a hard man to beat.

    • Ah, but he’s no moderate, you know. He’s a devout Catholic who is so opposed to women’s right to choose (“personhood” bills for instance) that he’s no different from all those suits and a gorgon candidate for the GOP nomination. And he tried a Scott Walker move to abolish public employee unions until Proposition 3 sank his boat. Be careful what you wish for.

      • I’m not wishing for him, I would much prefer one of the other yahoos who are running, but because he’s a wolf in sheep’s he is dangerous. If he makes it through the primaries – a big if – I still think he would be a hard man to beat.
