Carly Fiorina, a key surrogate for John McCain on economic issues, said on Tuesday that Sarah Palin does not have the experience needed to run a major company like the one that Fiorina formerly headed.
“Do you think [Sarah Palin] has the experience to run a major company, like Hewlett Packard?” asked the host.
“No, I don’t,” responded Fiorina. “But you know what? That’s not what she’s running for.”
You’re right, Fiorina. She’s not running for CEO of HP. She’s running for Vice President of the United States.
HP has about 172,000 employees.
The US Federal Government has about 1.8 million civilian employees. If you add in the military and postal service that number jumps to 14.6 million!
If John McCain’s own advisors are saying Sarah Palin isn’t ready to run an organization the size of HP- how the hell are we supposed to believe she can run the Federal Government?
