Vincent Sheheen Got Pwned

We’ve never heard of the  (Tumblr) website America Rising, but it’s got a pretty hard-to-argue-against pop against S.C. Senator Vincent Sheheen (D-Camden), who is running for governor against incumbent “Republican” Nikki Haley. Hours after bashing Haley for traveling out of state on campaign business, Sheheen … wait for it ……

We’ve never heard of the  (Tumblr) website America Rising, but it’s got a pretty hard-to-argue-against pop against S.C. Senator Vincent Sheheen (D-Camden), who is running for governor against incumbent “Republican” Nikki Haley.

Hours after bashing Haley for traveling out of state on campaign business, Sheheen … wait for it … traveled out of state on campaign business.

The only problem?

Business wasn’t booming.

FITS tweeted out a photo yesterday evening of the sparse crowd associated with Sheheen’s event – which was held at the Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, N.C. – but America Rising has the video from the event.

And it’s bad. Take a look …

Wow … ouch.

Obviously Sheheen has a long way to go to match Haley when it comes to hypocrisy (and unlike Haley he was kind enough not to bill taxpayers for this campaign appearance) … but still. Facing a huge fundraising disadvantage, Sheheen needs to do a much better job filling rooms like this.

He also needs to do a better job not being a hypocrite … even if he is running against the biggest hypocrite this state has ever elected.

lol….I actually went on a factory tour of that place last March with some friends.

I guess Vince thought it would be a nice place to have a wake.

TBG’s take:

FREE BEER couldn’t even draw a crowd.

Wow!

Depends on the beer, though.

Not really, I like a beer now and then but not enough to spend time with “the empty suit”

It turned into a good crowd. That must have been early or late.

Who’d go out of their way to talk to Vince “the empty suit” Sheheen? The worthless, mouth breathing, ambulance chaser.

I’ll probably be writing in my own name – neither of these idiots are worth the mental anguish of trying to decide who’s the “…lesser of two weevils…”.

I thought the flap over Haley’s trip had to do with her using a state car & SLED escort. Sheheen may have bombed, but I’m assuming he paid for the gas.

There are so many good people in South Carolina. The problem is so few of them are running for public office. Then again, can you blame them?

You have to have the ego of thinking you know what is best for everyone in order to run effectively.

That makes you a sociopath.

It also helps if you think that you are justified is saying/promising anything in order to gain such power.

That also makes you a sociopath.

That’s why most “good people” don’t run and when they do they get steamrolled 99% of the time.

The system rewards charismatic, outright liars/sociopaths. Best not to give those elected power in the first place.

Sheheen is nothing but a puppet for the remains of the white elite of the SC Democratic Party. He’s pathetic. I’m not a Haley fan, but this guy is creepy boring and controlled. Even with all the confirmed corruption and dishonesty proven about Jean Toal, he and his legislative bff, James Smith, are supporting her. So unfortunate.
