So, maybe you’ve heard, but GOP Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina had a big night Wednesday evening.
After her powerful performance in the first “JV” presidential debate, she finally got her chance to take on the top tier of candidates – and, boy, did she ever prove that she belongs.
In the aftermath of the debate, a consensus quickly grew proclaiming her the run away winner, which quickly led to the pundits contemplating if the win would help her in the polls. The first post-debate poll seems to indicate that she’s already seeing a bump for her victory.
So how did Fiorina do it?
I think one moment more than any other is the perfect anecdote for her night.
During a part of the debate that focused on the Iran Nuclear Deal, Fiorina weaved together two different political issues and struck a blow for conservatism by tying them together and using them to condemn the Obama administration.
I would like to link these two issues, both of which are incredibly important, Iran and Planned Parenthood.
One has something to do with the defense of the security of this nation. The other has something to do with the defense of the character of this nation.
You have not heard a plan about Iran from any politician up here, here is my plan. On day one in the Oval Office, I will make two phone calls, the first to my good friend to Bibi Netanyahu to reassure him we will stand with the state of Israel.
The second, to the Supreme Leader, to tell him that unless and until he opens every military and every nuclear facility to real anytime, anywhere inspections by our people, not his, we, the United States of America, will make it as difficult as possible and move money around the global financial system.
We can do that, we don’t need anyone’s cooperation to do it.
And every ally and every adversary we have in this world will know that the United States in America is back in the leadership business, which is how we must stand with our allies.
As regards Planned Parenthood, anyone who has watched this videotape, I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, it’s heart beating, it’s legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.
This is about the character of our nation, and if we will not stand up in and force President Obama to veto this bill, shame on us.
That was awesome.
