Carly Fiorina: Female Voters Fed Up With Phony 'War on Women'

By    |   Wednesday, 29 October 2014 06:32 PM

The nation is fed up with the phony "war on women" that Democrats are endlessly accusing Republicans of waging, says Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard.

"We have a lot of data which suggests that people are tiring of the slogans and the gestures. Women, as well as men," Fiorina saud Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"There is more and more evidence that women are swinging over to the Republican side and partially it's because one of the top issues for women is jobs and the economy, national security, healthcare and education.

"Women and men are realizing that these gestures and these slogans are not serious and that we're living in serious times. People are undergoing serious issues and we need serious leadership."

Fiorina said women make up 50 percent of the nation's population and represent 53 percent of voters, making them capable of swaying elections.

"Women are the majority of voters . . . They care about every issue because they're worried about their own jobs, their husband's job and their children's future. They look at the headlines on Ebola and ISIS and they're worried about our nation's security," she said.

"On top of everything else, this war on women propaganda the Democrats have been throwing out there for the last couple of election cycles is insulting to women. Every issue is a women's issue."

Much of the rabble-rousing against Republicans is created by "professional activists" who seek to hijack political discourse, according to Fiorina.

"It's fine for people to disagree, these are complex issues. What's not fine is that complex issues get boiled down to simple slogans that are wrong," she said.

"We have people, for example, who push back against any reasonable discussion of what our policy should be around energy and climate change by lumping people into one of two categories: you're either a global warming denier or you're on the right side of truth and the American way.

"That's a terrible disservice to our nation and to our citizens, and it's what the Democratic Party has tended to do over the last couple election cycles. You're either for women because you're pro-choice or you're against women because you're pro-life. That's really a disservice to everyone."

Earlier this year, Fiorina launched the Unlocking Potential Project, which is focusing on bringing more center-right women into the voting process in six key states.
