Nikki Haley Rides To Lindsey Graham’s Rescue

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley praised embattled U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham effusively this week – riding to the rescue of the liberal lawmaker after he was semi-dissed by fellow U.S. Sen. Tim Scott. “I want to say this: on any issue that I have had to deal with Lindsey on, whether…

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley praised embattled U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham effusively this week – riding to the rescue of the liberal lawmaker after he was semi-dissed by fellow U.S. Sen. Tim Scott.

“I want to say this: on any issue that I have had to deal with Lindsey on, whether it was the NLRB issue, whether it was voter ID, whether it’s been on the fight that we’ve had with Obamacare, or whether it’s been fighting for our businesses in South Carolina, Lindsey has dropped everything to help with those fights,” Haley told CNN’s Peter Hamby. “And so for that I’m very grateful for him.”

Wait … “the fight that we’ve had with Obamacare?”

Haley wasn’t on board with that fight … and Graham voted to move Obamacare forward before the fight even began.

What on earth is this woman talking about?

Oh, and Voter ID? For those of you who’ve already forgotten, that’s one of many issues Haley’s administration has flat out lied to the people of South Carolina about …

Anyway, Haley should tread very carefully here … her approval rating among Republican voters is her only saving grace right (overall, her numbers are terrible). Getting too cozy with Graham – whose approval rating among GOP voters has plunged by more than 30 percent in the last eight months – could cost her support she desperately needs to keep.

Of course unlike Graham – who is facing four announced primary opponents – Haley isn’t facing a Republican challenger in her reelection bid. She’s banking on GOP voters falling in line behind her no matter what.

No surprise. Haley wants to remain on the good side of establishment Republicans because she wants something better after her next term as governor. Best not to rock the boat, especially when she’s running in 2014.

Just two shitty politicians scratching each others’ backs.

Well said.

Normally I would ask, “What was Haley riding in on, a bag of dicks?”

But in this case, I can’t, because Lindsey would be hogging them all.

*struggles with Jaye P. Morgan to prevent her from striking the gong…*

Haley has over $3,000,000 in the bank for her relection (this is how they roll over in Swansea)

Graham has over $7.000,000 in the bank for his relection (tihtroiS)

Do the math


Haley and Graham are Satan. November 21, 2013 at 5:14 pm

Erect billboards along I-26, I-20, and I-95 around the Columbia area calling her a “liar” just like the likes of Obama. It will do quite a bit of harm while exposing her ugly truth. Anyone supporting Graham, to me, is a sack of shit. Because that is what he is. And I am no liberal. I am no democrat, not even a republican anymore. I am an independent. I tell everyone I come into contact with – when talk of politics might come up, that Graham is a demon just like Obama.

Bless your heart. That much vitriol must take a toll on your psyche. Comparing human beings to Satan. Bless your heart again.

CorruptionInColumbia November 21, 2013 at 6:49 pm

That did it. As much as the idea disgusts me, I may well vote for Sheheen just to (hopefully) help ensure that she does not see another term.

TontoBubbaGoldstein November 21, 2013 at 7:01 pm

Outa da fryin’ pan an into da fire!

CorruptionInColumbia November 21, 2013 at 7:58 pm

Yep! I hate these kind of “choices”.

venomachine November 22, 2013 at 8:31 am

Do what I do and vote for neither one. Doesn’t accomplish much, but your conscience is clear.

Note that I’m not saying don’t vote.

CorruptionInColumbia November 22, 2013 at 8:40 am

Hi Veno! That was originally my plan. I figured between her blatant corruption, incompetence, and other things, it was a given that she would lose after her narrow victory over Sheheen in 2010. I planned to vote for the most interesting third-party candidate and let the chips fall where they may.
She would lose (or so I thought) and my hands would be clean of having elected Sheheen to the Governor’s mansion. Hey, I could truthfully say that I did not vote for him. :-)

The way this is starting to look, absent a challenger in the primary, I may wind up doing something I really don’t want to do, just to try and keep her from getting re-elected, something she definitely does not deserve.

Smirks November 22, 2013 at 8:58 am

Might as well, Sheheen won’t win anyways. :P

Thomas Pickering November 21, 2013 at 6:52 pm

I cannot wait til Haley and Obama are both gone from the public eye.
They a siamese twins separated at birth.
You cannot trust or place faith in anything they say, or promise…period.
They would both sell their sole for a dollar and probably have.
It is the only way I can comprehend the vast stupidity which elected them, Obama twice.
Let’s hope and pray the same mistake is not a Haley re-election!
When she is gone it will be a great day in South Carolina for sure.

WTF November 21, 2013 at 7:05 pm

Damn! I logged on, that picture of Haley popped up and I had horrible flash backs of that witch in Wizard of OZ! She always scared the shit out of me, now Haley scares the shit out me!

Matt November 21, 2013 at 7:33 pm

Sadly her kind words will actually probably help Graham given the typical S.C. voter

Ron November 21, 2013 at 8:25 pm

She got paid. Money or national media play. Something, but she got paid.

Tetley November 21, 2013 at 9:03 pm

Hmmmm…. there was an article somewhere today about Snooki kissing up to Lindsey while specifically declining to *endorse* him, citing her policy to not get involved in any SC races, but that article seems to have disappeared (at least I can’t find it now). At any rate, looks like she’s trying to hedge her bets all around… interesting to see how that works out.

WTF November 22, 2013 at 1:47 am

You still trust anything which comes from her lying mouth?
What she says, or preaches and what she does is totally different; especially, if she thinks there may be something in it for her!

Tetley November 22, 2013 at 6:12 pm

Not sure how my post suggested I trust her. As far as I’m concerned, to call her the Antichrist would be an insult to decent, honorable Antichrists everywhere.

Voting on issues according to party has this state in a turmoil-the GOP held majority has fubared this state since Sanford’s first year. Corruption and ethics violations have been hidden or swept under the rug for a decade.

Arlen Cooper November 22, 2013 at 8:03 am

Nik, this reads like good advice. If you are standing too close to “limp-wristed” Graham on election day you may be jettisoned down the discharge shoot too! Limpy feels the heat already. ?

CharlesDikkens November 22, 2013 at 11:56 am

Not sure what Naughty Nikki is riding on, but it sure isn’t Miz Lindsey…

FondlingPeanutsAtTheStateFair November 22, 2013 at 11:57 am

Haley is assigning all of those poor needy South Carolinians to death panels by not expanding Medicaid. Go ahead, Nikki, destroy your base because tens of thousand of them are white people who –sadly–vote for you.

All you need to know about Haley is her hatred of the poor and needy. So very Christian of her……….
