carly fiorina cnbc gop debate 2

While several of the current Republican presidential candidates have worked for Fox News in the past, and could yet again if their bids fail, the network may also be eyeing some newer talent as well.

In an interview with Adweek, Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes brought up the possibility that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina could be good fits for the network, based on their recent debate performances:

Well, [New Jersey Gov. Chris] Christie was never [a Fox News contributor], but he’s good on TV. I think he’s gotten a bum rap in this race. Carly Fiorina has been on the stage with 15 men twice and she’s beat them, twice. That’s pretty good. Her answers are solid. Carly is a formidable woman. Did she wreck Hewlett Packard? No. Was she in the middle of all that crap going down? Yes. Did she make mistakes? Probably. I bet she learned a hell of a lot.

There is no doubt that Christie’s blunt and often politically incorrect talk would be a good fit for Fox, and he might possibly host his own show if Ailes thinks he could bring in big enough ratings. Fiorina, on the other hand, isn’t nearly as good on TV as Christie, but she is a smart, focused tough talking woman who has more than held her own. She would be a solid addition for Fox, even though the liberal media don’t think she smiles enough.

With both Christie and Fiorina polling in the low single digits, the odds are better that they will wind up on Fox News than in the White House.

    13.5 months to go, and we’ll hopefully be rid of Obama for good! The damage he can do during his last 13.5 months in office can still be disastrous for this country, and Congress had better step up and block his every evil move! That includes blocking every effort by Obama to eliminate our 2nd Amendment rights! Americans are going to need their guns to protect themselves from all the Muslims that Obama is flooding into this country! Talk about TREASON! He’s also got the blacks so worked up nationwide, he’s even daring this country to impeach him. Apparently he’s counting on his fellow blacks to rise up in his defense. Unfortunately, the blacks are so stupid, they probably will! They elected that piece of Muslim crap twice, and our nation is paying for it!
