NIKKI HALEY APPROVAL RATING
QUESTION: I can’t believe her [...]
That didn’t take long …
Just as Rick James didn’t – then did – grind his feet on Eddie Murphy’s couch (and just as Nikki Haley didn’t – then did – have a password for a fraudulent job application she submitted to a former employer); Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney didn’t – then did – have [...]
S .C. Gov. Nikki Haley says she would not accept the vice presidential nomination in the event it was offered to her.
“I’d say, ‘Thank you, but no,’” Haley told ABC News. “I made a promise to the people of this state. And I think that promise matters. And I intend to keep it.”
Haley? Keep a [...]
S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley has previously taken herself out of the running for the No. 2 spot on a national Republican ticket, but that didn’t stop her choice for the No. 1 spot from putting her on his short list for the position.
“I’ll give you some names I’ll consider,” former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said [...]
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is in the news again … and yeah, you can pretty much take it to the bank that he’s putting his foot in his mouth (or perhaps that camel’s mouth).
Biden, who is currently touring Asia (because that’s what Vice Presidents do) said Monday that U.S. President Barack Obama could still [...]
A week after telling a Canadian publication that “everybody wants to talk about VP with me,” S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley told a national radio audience that she is the “flavor of the month” in the race for the No. 2 spot on the 2012 Republican ticket.
“I am very aware that I am the flavor of [...]
There are two schools of thought regarding the future political trajectory of S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley.
One theory is that Haley is a rising star in the Republican ranks – a telegenic minority with sex appeal and fiscally conservative credentials who would be a magnet for independent voters.
“Ronald Reagan in a skirt,” her supporters are fond [...]
U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint doesn’t want to be vice president … and let’s face it, who could blame him?
The job is apparently so boring that its putting the current occupant to sleep … literally.
Anyway, while it would probably be pretty cool to be a “heartbeat away” from the presidency, DeMint told the National Journal this [...]
All S.C. Gov.-elect “Trikki” Nikki Haley wants for Christmas (politically-speaking) are guarantees from legislative leaders that she’ll get two “quick wins” when the S.C. General Assembly reconvenes in January. Specifically, Haley wants a “small business income tax cut” (click here for more on the truth behind that proposal) and some kind of education funding reform. [...]
Think that headline is an oxymoron? It should be, but unfortunately in todayâ€™s age of warped feminism, it isnâ€™t.
Enter Sarah Palin as John McCainâ€™s veep pick. McCainâ€™s announcement of Palin last Friday was a historic moment, and as such stole much of the media spotlight from coverage of Barack Obamaâ€™s own historic speech the previous [...]
“SPEAKS SO WELL” APPARENTLY IS A COMPLIMENT
FITSNews – August 23, 2008 – Eighteen months after saying that Barack Obama was “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Democratic Senator Joe Biden has officially been tapped as Obama’s running mate.
Obama made the announcement, as promised, via text message [...]
LIEBERMAN STILL RUMORED AS POSSIBLE GOP VEEP PICK
FITSNews – July 31, 2008 – We first wrote back in March about former Democratic Vice Presidential nominee and Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman being a possible surprise VP pick for Republican John McCain this year.Â Such an unconventional selection – our sources argued at the time – would [...]
