Nikki Haley Rebukes Her Own Party

S.C. Nikki Haley has morphed from a limited government “Tea Partier” to a big-spending establishment “Republican” over the last two-and-a-half years, but an email controversy has her training fire on her own party.

S.C. Nikki Haley has morphed from a limited government “Tea Partier” to a big-spending establishment “Republican” over the last two-and-a-half years, but an email controversy has her training fire on her own party.

This week, the S.C. Republican Party (SCGOP) sent out a fundraising email referring to U.S. President Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as his “Gestapo.”

We have no problem with the reference (one of the rare moments we’ve stuck up for the SCGOP), but Democrats were up in arms over the Nazi analogy.

“As the leader of her party, Governor Haley should condemn these hateful remarks,” S.C. Democratic Party chairman Jaime Harrison said.

Haley obliged …

Following a state budget meeting in Columbia, S.C., the governor told reporters the SCGOP email was “unfortunate and uncalled for.”

“There is no place in politics for any comments like that,” she said. “I didn’t think so when they were done to me, I don’t think so now.”

Haley was referring, of course, to a September 2012 incident in which former Democratic Party chairman Dick Harpootlian compared her to Adolf Hitler’s longtime mistress Eva Braun.

Sheesh … is this a slow news summer or what?

Isn’t that what most of the GOP politicians who divide the world up into makers and takers usually do?
Career, nearly entire adult life long politician Paul Ryan particularly comes to mind.
But, they know that the people who vote for them are generally too slow to pick up on that blatant hypocrisy and just don’t worry about it.
And, the Democrats are usually too stupid to educate the voters about them.

“We have no problem with the reference”
That’s because you have no decency.

I guess when you have parents with a near half million judgement against them, you tend to dislike the IRS.

“Sticks and stone may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”-6 year old girl that is mentally tougher than the SCDP.

Oh, and Haley can ride right back out of office on the several dicks she rode in on.
