Carly Fiorina Is Very Unafraid of Chinese Entrepreneurs

One might even say that she's offensively dismissive of the Chinese economy in general.

Unemployed technology executive and non-Senator from California, Carly Fiorina, has had a very interesting run for the Presidency since she made her candidacy official less than a month ago.

Between spinning her firing from Hewlett Packard as proof of her business brilliance, mocking Hillary Clinton's travel schedule as Secretary of State and blaming California's crippling drought on liberals, Carly has proven that she's unafraid of taking stances.

But being president requires a nuanced view of the world, whatever your expertise may be. While being interviewed by a political blog in Iowa, Fiorina displayed her ability to walk the fine line of opinion and fact when discussing her professional wheelhouse: International business.

Fiorina cited her decades of business experience in China to say that the Chinese people are good at test taking but are not imaginative, entrepreneurial, or innovative.
“I have been doing business in China for decades, and I will tell you that yeah, the Chinese can take a test, but what they can’t do is innovate,” she said. “They are not terribly imaginative. They’re not entrepreneurial, they don’t innovate, that is why they are stealing our intellectual property.”
She added teaching innovation, risk-taking, and imagination “are things that are distinctly American and we can’t lose them.”

Whether or not Fiorina meant for listeners to infer that the Chinese are a bunch of drone-like, standardized test-taking idea thieves is up for debate, and we can forgive her for overlooking the existence of Alibaba since she'd been drummed out of HP long before it came onto the scene.

That being said one can assume that her comments have spurred the imagination of many Chinese-Americans who are now fervidly imagining of not voting for her.
