One argument supporters of Carly Fiorina can offer for why she should be entrusted with the presidency is that her private sector executive experience makes her results oriented.

This fact was on display Sunday, when she was asked by Breitbart News if she supported a measure to “vacate the chair” – remove John Boehner as Speaker of the House and replace him with another Republican.

Fiorina replied:

I think leadership’s job is to produce results, and when leaders don’t produce results, they need to step aside So, I think, I share the frustration of so many people who worked hard to create these majorities.

She went on to list three areas in which the leadership could demonstrate the results they were sent to Washington to produce. First, they should pass a bill to secure the border. Second, pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and defund Planned Parenthood. And third, pass the REINS Act, which would put a check on regulations that stifle economic opportunity.

She then reiterated her point: produce or lose your leadership position.

[A]ssuming they don’t do anything, they’re sort of making the point people are saying, ‘You know what? It’s time for different leadership.’

Fiorina’s answer is once again an example of a bold position based on intelligent reasoning. No wonder she is resonating with those who want to see a new approach to government.
