Carly Fiorina won the debate of second-tier Republican candidates Thursday afternoon, hands-down according to polling. She might not have been involved in the evening debates but she might have beaten all of them out too.
The evening debate was a ratings-getter. It was the highest rated show of any cable show – including sports – ever, with 24 million viewers. It was high on entertainment value, extraordinary for fiery one-on-ones, but not always informative.
The afternoon debate wasn’t a debate. It was a civil Q&A with Fox News’ Bill Hemmer and Martha McCallum. It was informative and candidates didn’t have to worry about fighting the other candidates on stage.
Carly Fiorina has been a relentless critic of Hillary Clinton. When asked about Hillary, Carly said, “Hillary Clinton lies about Benghazi, she lies about email, she is still defending Planned Parenthood and she is still her party’s frontrunner. 2016 is going to be a fight between conservatism and a Democrat party that is undermining the very character of this nation. We need a nominee who is going to throw every punch, not poll punches, and someone who cannot stumble before he even gets into the ring. I’m not a member of the political class. I’m a Conservative. I can win this job. I can do this job. I need your help. I need your support. I will, with your help and support, lead the resurgence of this great nation.”
Maybe she could be our Margaret Thatcher.
