Nancy Mace: Ready For Prime Time?

U.S. Senate candidate Nancy Mace’s performance on Glenn Beck’s national TV/ radio show is being panned by critics. In fact one has gone so far as to suggest the first female graduate of The Citadel – who is one of several Republicans challenging U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham – is “not ready for prime time.”

“Nancy Mace’s ‘answers’ (on Beck’s show) were not illuminating,” host Jay Severin of The Blaze observed. “In fact, they were pretty much excruciating.”

“In politics some things change, but many remain the same,” Severin added. “Like ‘You must be ready for prime time.’ And as of the Glenn Beck Show this week, Nancy Mace isn’t.”

We disagree with Severin’s analysis. Beck’s line of questioning on several instances was … well … bizarre. And at times it was pretty invasive on a personal level (without there being much of a reason for the invasiveness). For example, at one point he kept harping on Mace to open up to him about her “soul.”

“I don’t mean to be a stickler here, but … my question was ‘how is your soul?'” Beck peppered Mace. “Do you know the value of your soul? How is your relationship with uh, the, uh, the originating source of your soul, and uh, what makes you think you’re not going to go into a lion’s den – because that’s what is – and, uh, and … you’re just not gonna lose your sole up there?”

Huh? How in the hell is somebody supposed to answer a line of questioning like that? Also, last time we checked Mace’s relationship with her creator is none of Beck’s business – and had very little to do with the duties of a U.S. Senator.

Nonetheless, Mace did her best to oblige …

“Well, what I can say about my soul is that I am founded on very specific principles and I do not waver and I believe I’m on the right side here – on the right side of the angels,” Mace said. “And when I go to Washington I’m not going to waver from that. I have shown consistently in my life that I’m a very hard worker and I’m self-reliant and that’s what I want to bring to D.C. I see what’s happening up there and it is very frustrating.”

Mace’s performance on Beck’s show was by no means a home run, but we think she handled a quirky interviewer fairly well. She certainly did much better on Beck’s program than she did in this interview with Fox News host Neil Cavuto.

Thus far, Mace actually appears to be following the Nikki Haley playbook – which involves memorizing a tight script and sticking to that script no matter what questions she’s asked.

That approach obviously worked for Haley … will it work for Mace?

Beck is one stop short of Brother Stair.

I seem remember hearing someplace that Beck things the Constitution is divinely inspired.

Coupled with magic underwear, golden plates, & thinking blacks are black because they are stained with sin it’s probably one of the lesser kooky beliefs in Mormonism…but Mace should have anticipated that going in IMHO.

Especially with her connections to FITSnews.

She’s not even a couple of weeks in and she’s bombing…egads.

I see more trips to Ireland in celebration for Ms. Lindsey unfortunately.

Supposedly he became a Mormon while battling addiction. At least some good came out of it.

Beck’s craziness seems to go beyond his religion though.

Ah! Someone else knows about Brother Stair.
Many years ago I was listening to shortwave international radio and came across a raving loon radio preacher who was fairly amusing to listen to for a while. And where did he say he was? Walterboro SC!!
It’s just not everywhere anymore that you hear women with trimmed hair (not short, mind you, just not long) morally denounced as “pants-wearing bobbed-haired Jezebels.”
And Pope is eventually going to have Brother Stair assassinated, according to said-same Brother Stair.
He’s the last prophet of God (same source).
I have not heard him for years. I wonder if that old shortwave radio still works.

Poor Nancy August 8, 2013 at 5:23 pm

Whatever political consultant put her up to running ought to be strung up by his nads. She’s obviously not competent to run for office and the poor woman is going to be ripped to shreds. Her Cavuto interview showed she’d not even *heard* of the Christie-Paul national security debate, much less that she’d formed an opinion on it. And Beck and Cavuto gave her plenty of space to say ANYTHING cognizable, and she failed. You can detect both guys’ embarrassment for her at the end of their interviews.

This is sad.

Fuck man, Beck is just gone. Completely gone. He has devolved past crying on national television about Murica and hocking worthless coins to dumb people into a crazed televangelist who is entirely removed from reality. I listened to his show after Obama won and it was some deranged shit about how everyone should give him money to create these bizarre paranoid moron crap. I honestly thought he was just fleecing his viewers. Apparently not.

I read it as Mace being very evasive about her faith. Very common for a moderate, secularist. And I would bet if she is afraid to say “God” her opponents will jump all over her skepticism. Very big flaw and large blunder. This will be a short-lived campaign of the Graham challengers. But she will split the moderate vote in the primary.

Mace has potential but she needs to be the one who comes out as being different. One who answers the question with certainty rather than, “I don’t have all of that information.” Cavuto’s question about the NSA was fairly direct and she could have hit a homerun on this to distinguish her from LG.
We are all so wanting her to succeed it is painful to see her falter. Step it up and get in the game.

There is a great quote, “Fly like a butterfly, and sting like a bee…”. When you sit back and re-listen to your interview, what do you realize? Now, Graham, can sit back and be a “Rope a Dope” if he wants too. He is the incumbent. We highly suggest you get out of your cocoon and actually go to the women’s department of Dillards and talk to some women in the dressing room. Seriously…!! Glenn Beck can tell his listeners and viewers that he is mad as hell; but you need to demonstrate that you are mad as “Jesus in the Temple”…!!! No matter what your “advisors” are telling you, you need to remember your Citadel “view”..!! Did your Drill Instructor ever deceive you about what it would take to succeed at the Citadel…!! Glenn Beck has the foresight to ask you if he should trust you and do you know how you responded..?? Like a …politician would. Not a Citadel cadet on a field of battle..! Don’t believe me……just come in this comment section and ask some of the valued taxpayers that may just VOTE for you. Nancy, you need to take a page out of the “Gloria Allred” manual of factual artillery.!! What cannons did you fire at JIM CLYBURN for not calling out Senator Graham on the antics in Benghazi..?

Nancy, I know your dad like the back of my hand, and I feel sure he knows your soul. SO……..how are your principles? You ask if you can trust your government and we know that you have read the “Art of War”..!! Stop being deceptive on your principles….period.! You play to WIN…all the time. You let Graham worry about his donors running off..! Nancy…your not an idiot. So, start talking like your a Senator from South Carolina that has smoked the pants off Tim Scott Jim Clyburn and Joe WIlson put together..!! You can say your sorry later…over the campaign cash you have sucked off every other candidate.

Nancy, I dare you to get your mother to read these comments. Get her perspective. You say our biggest problem is TRUST? Well, what trust was broken in Benghazi..?

Well, I TRUST that you will post this comment by me on the front page of your campaign website…..and answer these concerns. Matter of fact, have your mother offer a video response that can be used by teachers in every school here in our state about proper “bully” techniques..!! Have her comment and video link tagged to your website.

Dear Thomas Ravenel………

You are a real winner. Ya know, for someone who has time to get his face on a TV show in Charleston, you really have no clue why this show is being positioned at this time do you..? What do you think is going to happen to your show if Senator Lindsey Graham is re-elected..? That’s right…it will be canceled. SO….how are you going to ensure that YOU make as much money as possible….and also push the ratings of this Bravo show through the roof..??

Ya know, we wonder just how many drug dealers in Charleston understand how to use a video camera to ask YOU and Lindsey Graham about the “charm” of the War on Drugs?

Heck, if Sic Willie can say he slept with Nikki Haley then what is stopping you from saying that you slept with Nancy MACE…just as a joke to make extra jack from t-shirt sales..!? If you don’t, we feel sure that Sic Willie will..!! From the looks of the advertising on this website Fits needs the loot.!

If you thought the Beck interview was bad you should have heard her on Laura Ingraham this morning. She completely froze when asked about her association with FITSNEWS. Oh, and then she ended the interview by sucking up like nobodies business to Nikky Haley. Seriously, she loves Haley

Sic, what do you think about those comments on Haley from this morning?

I delicately suggest that if you come to this site for “constructive comments” that you have made a bad decision to start.

That being said, when it comes to our various levels of gov’ts, there’s not much constructive to discuss.

That being said, I will offer a constructive comment now:

Nancy Mace has plenty of time to “improve” or become the next Rick Perry.

Is that better now?

If you want constructive input, go to another story on this blog. Glenn Beck and Nancy Mace are sore subjects to most of the people here, I have found. Heck, my wife doesn’t like Glenn Beck! But I would never have learned about Saul Alinsky, had it not been for him. I haven’t heard a single positive thought from Mace, yet, but that’s true of all the candidates, so I’m waiting and hoping to hear some.

As it happens, “?” is quite intelligent, as are TontoBubbaGoldstein and Shifty Henry. And they’re funny, too. There are also some people who write pretty words, but they are as empty-headed as a grave-robber’s dreams. No-one, not even you or I, have perfect punctuation. And, if truth be told, I have my own blog which has a few more views than Will’s.. so, I’m no wanna be. And no, I’m not going to plug my blog at Will’s expense.

“…you’re just not gonna lose your sole up there?”

Are we worried about her shoes or the “…the spiritual part of humans regarded in its moral aspect…”? If we’re worried about the “moral aspect” of a potential elected official, (and we should be), maybe it was a valid question.

Beck is occasionally entertaining but not elected or appointed to anything – he can and will ask or say whatever he wants that he thinks will help his numbers. As long as you remember that he is first and foremost an entertainer and advertising salesman, primarily concerned with commercial revenue, you’ll do quite well when considering what he says and does.

As for Mace’s response, “Well, what I can say about my soul is that I am founded on very specific principles and I do not waver and I believe I’m on the right side here – on the right side of the angels,…And when I go to Washington I’m not going to waver from that. I have shown consistently in my life that I’m a very hard worker and I’m
self-reliant and that’s what I want to bring to D.C. I see what’s happening up
there and it is very frustrating.”
I’d say she hit at a slightly ambiguous triple. Ambiguity in her particular, personal religious belief is acceptable in our system.

1) She never answered What her Passion is…. just gave talking points for answer, never actually stated what her passion was
2) She did not answer about why we should trust her. She stated why others are trustworthy until Beck called her out on not answering it. Weak answer as well.
3) Hows your soul? He wants to know whether she will sell her soul like many that go up to DC. Will she stick to principles based upon her beliefs. She got it after he explained Will… She answered poorly there as well
4) What are your Principles? Tea Party Line answer
5) Immigration Reform.. She rambled for a minute, then gave a nonsense answer

She needs a redo on this… She is not ready for primetime yet… That could change over the next 10 months
