Fiorina was ‘removed’ from job

Having worked at Hewlett-Packard well before and during Carly Fiorina’s tenure, I find it more than interesting that she’s even mentioning the fact she was the CEO and, in her words, “ran” the company. It’s well documented that after only 5 years, she had already made some incredibly controversial decisions and was involuntarily removed from her position. To put it bluntly, she was fired.

Fiorina took what had once been a great company and nearly “ran” it into the ground.

In the process, she led the effort to accelerate the off shoring of large portions of the company, especially manufacturing jobs. However, she didn’t stop there. Many of the traditional internal HP positions became outsourced, which further downsized HP and resulted in wholesale elimination of positions in the company. In short, she was a corporate-world leader in the effort to reduce tens of thousands of well-paying American jobs. And now she wants to be our U.S. senator?

Fiorina says she knows how to create jobs? She’s leaving out the part about them being low-paying and overseas. If this is the kind of experience that makes her qualified to help lead this country, then all working Americans are surely in trouble.
