One week after turning in a less-than-impressive performance at the National Republican Congressional Committee dinner in Washington, D.C., it was announced that S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley would be making another appearance in our nation’s capital.
You know … since she’s got no real reason to be in South Carolina anymore.
Haley will be the featured panelist on April 6 at the American Enterprise Institute, a Washington D.C. think tank which claims its mission is “to defend the principles and improve the institutions of American freedom and democratic capitalism — limited government, private enterprise, individual liberty and responsibility, vigilant and effective defense and foreign policies, political accountability, and open debate.”
Alright … that’s all fine and good in our book.
Of course the only “democratic capitalism” taking place at this event will be Haley selling copies of her new book …
In “Can’t Is Not an Option: A Memoir,” Governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina tells the story of the struggles her family faced as immigrants from India and how the lessons learned from that experience shaped her political views and continue to influence her actions as she works to create jobs and improve the lives of South Carolinians. In addition to telling her story, Governor Haley’s book chronicles how the federal government has impeded reforms in her state on issues ranging from health care to illegal immigration and regulation. At this event, she will discuss the complicated relationship between the federal government and the states and her own experiences fighting government regulation. Liz Cheney, former deputy assistant secretary of state and chairman of KeepAmericaSafe.com, will join Governor Haley for this discussion.
Copies of “Can’t Is Not an Option” will be available for purchase at the event.
Wait … “the complicated relationship between the federal government and the states?”
You mean like when Haley begs the administration of Barack Obama to bail out her cash-strapped Department of Transportation?
Or when she uses record amounts of federal dollars to write the largest proposed budget in state history?
Or when she begs our state’s congressional delegation to support federal taxpayer-funded subsidies for foreign companies?
