Letter: Michael Haley’s Convenient Deployment

FIRST GENTLEMAN’S OVERSEAS GIG EMPOWERS HIS WIFE POLITICALLY Dear Editor, I know you are as sick of the Michael Haley going overseas thing as I am. But his deployment to Afghanistan is a touchy subject as I have found out – you get accused of being non-patriotic if you criticize…

Dear Editor,

I know you are as sick of the Michael Haley going overseas thing as I am. But his deployment to Afghanistan is a touchy subject as I have found out – you get accused of being non-patriotic if you criticize it. Nikki Haley got Michael the job he has now. He has found ways to participate in all the junkets Nikki Haley has taken so far (Paris, Japan, etc.).

I personally think that if Nikki pulled some strings – Michael (or whatever his name is) would not be going overseas. I think she arranged to whole thing because it will look good for her and she thinks it will help her get reelected.

I still want to get a pool together to see how many times in her speeches Haley mentions the fact that she is a military wife with her husband deployed overseas – even though he is only deployed as a farmer. We will NEVER hear the end of Nikki Haley being a military wife!!

I have been a civilian contractor overseas – no big deal. An I can assure you Michael Haley is in no danger unless he cuts his toe off with a hoe!

As much screwing around as she does when he is in town, it will be interesting to how much more she can do.

The Colonel January 10, 2013 at 12:14 pm

Hey Consultant – pick up a rifle and man a post before you criticize too much.

I’m getting ready for my third trip to the enchanted land of burquas and buggerers and yes, it can generally be “safe” – in fact, it’s a lot safer than Chicago or Richmond or New Orleans – but then everyone is packing and “assault rifles” are the norm, maybe there’s a lesson there….

Sarge January 10, 2013 at 1:01 pm

Or North Main, Farrow Road, Monticello Road, Read Street, Heidt Street, …..

KRONOS January 10, 2013 at 2:49 pm


You forgot the DMZ zone of Two Notch Road. Hell let’s be realistic…..why dont we say the whole friggin Richland County.

Mike at the Beach January 10, 2013 at 3:54 pm

Come on Colonel… Cut this contractor guy a little slack; the gist of his letter is spot-on. No fair minded person buys a single shred of Mr. Haley’s kooky civilian-guy-but-wears-a-uniform “job” with the NG, and that includes this deployment.

It sounds cheesy, I know, but thanks for your service. Stay safe on your impending trip to buggeryland! I left nothing there I need you to pick up for me…

@WH_Buz_Martin January 10, 2013 at 4:11 pm

Downtown Myrtle Beach after dark.

The Colonel January 10, 2013 at 8:00 pm

Mike you might be suprised to know how many National Guard “civilians in uniform” (also known as “Technicians”) there are – nothing kooky about it.

Mike at the Beach January 10, 2013 at 11:24 pm

COL- I am somewhat familiar, and I still think it’s a little kooky. Just my opinion…

Many folks are confusing the criticism (if you can call it that) of Haley’s deployment. His service is what it is, and I think most of the folks on here would wish him well. I know I do. The rub is the political aspect of him getting the gig initially, the “cushiness” angle, and the political juice most predict that the Guv will extract from it. At least that’s my interest in the thing…

jimlewis,owb January 10, 2013 at 12:17 pm

“cuts his toe off with a hoe”

If he does you can expect a Purple Heart ceremony on the steps of the Capitol.

Later he will have a Disabled Veteran tag on his Escalade, full family lifetime military medical benefits and retire with 110% pay as a disabled combat veteran due to the fact that he can no longer engage in his chosen profession: sticking his toe in the hoes over at Platinum Plus.

….. that’s good

@WH_Buz_Martin January 10, 2013 at 4:12 pm

I was gonna go there, but I see you beat me to it.

neighbor January 10, 2013 at 12:34 pm

Michael will be fine. He is very familiar with hoes.

south mauldin January 10, 2013 at 12:37 pm

I agree 100% with this letter. She wil milk this for all it is worth.

Thomas January 10, 2013 at 12:38 pm

I think there are resting people in Chappaquiddick who want her to fail, present founding editors included.

This deployment is fishy as far who finalized his unit. To have her solo up to the elections could be planned by upper management.

Speaking of PIAPS, the only work she did the last 4 years was on her back at cruising altitude with that Arab interpreter wife of Rep Weiner. Nothing has come out of State at all, if you do not count Bhengazi.

Good to know our Gov is on the radar…also helps explain Russians going after my tax filings? I got my letter last week. PIAPS, so no worry.

She would get more press announcing state sponsored Casino Gambling at the State of the State….

what? January 10, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Talk about political convenience…try three purple hearts with no scars…ask John Kerry how to pull that on off!

shifty henry January 10, 2013 at 12:55 pm

….. didn’t he get four, and the last one was a finger cut when opening a can of beer?

shifty henry January 10, 2013 at 12:58 pm

….. wasn’t she caught on tape saying “I’ll have more flexibility after the election”

Bonner January 10, 2013 at 4:01 pm

I believe it was “after the erection”.

norman January 10, 2013 at 1:34 pm

I noticed this warriors specialty was agriculture training. His previous world experience was the Exotica mens dept. I guess his previous work qualified his recent promotion to O-3. I wonder when the pissing and moaning will start from the Govs Mansion about the great sacrifice being made by the Capt. He should be serving with an underground mess kit repair detachment. This dog and pony show is made of volunteers and this was not a DoA deployment.

KRONOS January 10, 2013 at 2:52 pm

He should have included a chemistry background since he has experience mixing alcoholic beverages as a bartender.

dwb619 January 10, 2013 at 3:41 pm

Maybe he can raise cucumbers and egg plant in the Mansion garden when he gets back.

Big Daddy January 10, 2013 at 1:46 pm

There’s a gentleman up here in the good ole’ Pee Dee region that says he’s an instructor with the National Guard as has continuously said that he’s “non-deployable”. I always thought that during wartime, that everybody’s deployable. Sounds like a cushy deal to me with some politician pulling strings.

shifty henry January 10, 2013 at 2:11 pm

….. but please! ….. don’t show me any photos of Nikki wearing camo!

Marchant of Venus January 10, 2013 at 3:22 pm

Sadly, I think Nikki’s cheating days are over.

Women her age typically cheat because they are ignored at home, feel they have married beneath them, crave attention from other men, feel like they are getting old and unattractive, and need affirmation that they can still turn heads. They want the thrill, but not the bill.

Now that Nikki can be idolized by Fox News and the morons who still support her, the need to be adored is met. I suspect a large vibrator closely resembling Will Folks resides in her undies drawer, so that is not a reason. And she seems to have cut back on the alcohol, which may have fueled her previous out of town indiscretions.

I, for one, am disappointed. If she had a boy toy, she would be doing more to combat the noticable ass sag. She is no longer wearing bubble butt skirts or visiting the spa. Very sad.

At least Sara Palin still looks hot.

I miss our sexy, naughty Love Guv II.

Original Good Old Boy January 10, 2013 at 3:59 pm

This is insulting when you know Michael will be protecting our freedoms, plow in hand, as he helps to make the world a safer place.

neighbor January 10, 2013 at 4:02 pm

Willing to bet one of two things…he doesn’t even leave the country or that this planned one year separation is a prerequisite for an impending divorce.

fred January 10, 2013 at 4:52 pm

How did Mr. Haley, First Guy of The State, advanced to the rank of captain so quickly? Just thinking!!!!

The Colonel January 10, 2013 at 5:12 pm

He’s been in since ’06, that works out to 7 years or so which is just about right for a Guard Officer to make CPT. Apparently he was branched Medical Services originally so I suspect the “ho’s” he knows about are not the kind I use in my garden.

Willie P. Johnson SCARNG-ret January 10, 2013 at 5:08 pm

It took me 4 years to get Spec4 and he will be a General in 5!

palmettorumrunner January 10, 2013 at 7:12 pm

Hmmm. Let’s not forget his boss was appointed to be over OEPP by the Governor. Sounds like you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours. PS…she used to work for the illustrious DOR as an internal auditor.

Carolinagurl January 10, 2013 at 8:55 pm

So Nikki is the boss of Michael’s boss. Nikki promotes Michael’s boss and he get promoted. Nice. If that’s not good ole boy nothing is.

sheeet January 10, 2013 at 7:39 pm

Whatever his rank, status, or who his wife is, the guy is going into a war zone wearing his country’s uniform. Fuck you if you can’t respect that.

It’d be more dangerous to walk the streets of Chicago on a Saturday night than the duty this guy is gonna pull.

lexingtonmimosagal237 January 10, 2013 at 9:25 pm

@ palmettorumrunner and carolinagurl- there is a lot more to that story. The Colonel is promoted to the Governor’s office…Michael gets a promotion…now cousin can get promoted into Colonels old job…

Kenzie January 11, 2013 at 9:12 am

All political bullshit aside this man, for whatever reason, is heading overseas to do his part in serving our country! Not all soliders can be combat soliders…just not possible…It does not mean that the other jobs are any less important. Without cooks our soliders would starve, without mail workers we could not send cherished letters & pkgs to our loved ones & so on. Mr. Haley is going to teach these farmers about agriculture so when we pull out they can support their families & generate income. I cant stand our gov. I think shes a damn idiot, but it does not change the fact that on a human level this man is leaving his children & even if she is a adultress he is leaving the woman he loves for a year. So, instead of choosing to pick every negative fact or opinion you can find to criticize…how about tipping your hat to a man who like so many others has chosen to serve his country!!!

sheeet January 11, 2013 at 1:41 pm

He ain’t walking the streets of Chicago, he’s going to a war zone. Unless you have been in one, I have been, and maybe you have – shut up. ANY duty in a country and or zone where there is an organized force who’s sole objective is to kill you, is tough duty.

‘Consultant’ doesn’t have the balls to even sign his name to this letter let alone go where Mike Haley is going. Sit in your frilly panties at home and whine like the little bitch you are.

BIN News January 11, 2013 at 8:56 pm

They are called Fobbits. The First Gentleman will never go outside the wire, but he will probably come home and write a book.

Just like other pimps have exploited their experience.

What pimps:

Sorry, back to Fobbits:
