Carly Fiorina: Obama's Ignorance on Paris Rally 'Quite Stunning'

By    |   Tuesday, 13 Jan 2015 09:00 PM

Potential Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina told Fox News she finds it "quite stunning" that President Barack Obama was unaware of the giant rally in Paris on Sunday attended by 44 world leaders.

Like other critics, Fiorina said if Obama felt he shouldn't have gone himself he should have sent another high-ranking official, such as Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry or even first lady Michelle Obama.

"But honestly, it's just inconceivable to me that the president wasn't even aware, apparently, that this event was being planned so that he would have a conversation with his staff about whether or not he should go or someone else should go," the former Hewlett-Packard CEO told Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren." 

Asked by Van Susteren whether it was a staff failing, Fiorina said no.

"If you turned on the television you knew this was going to happen," she said. "I find it inconceivable that the president wasn't aware that this was going to happen and that he had a decision to make."

On the other hand, she said, Obama has repeatedly claimed to have learned of things only after reading about them in the newspaper or seeing them on television.

"I just find his apparent ignorance of what's going on around him quite stunning," she said. "And obviously he is failing as a chief executive.

As to her own White House plans, Fiorina said she is seriously considering it, "because I think we are crushing the potential of this nation."

This should be the American century, she said, but much of the policies of the country are making it too hard for Americans to fulfill their potential.

As evidenced by the Paris incident, she said, "America is not leading today in the world.
