IT’S HARD TO REMEMBER WHO REPRESENTS WHICH STATE SOMETIMES …

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley … err, sorry … Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal wants dredging to begin immediately on the Savannah River as part of his state’s taxpayer-funded expansion of the Port of Savannah.

“In the budget I am submitting to you, I have included $35 million for the deepening of the Port of Savannah,” Deal told Georgia lawmakers this week. “If approved, we will have $266 million, which will represent Georgia’s share of this important project. I intend for us to start dredging the project this year!”

“We have studied and planned long enough,” Deal added. “It’s time to start moving dirt!”

Ah, yes … the Port of Savannah expansion, which was aided and abetted by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley – who sold her own state’s interests down the river for campaign contributions and a prime time speaking slot at the 2012 Republican National Convention.

In November 2011 Haley – who came into office saying she was sick of being beaten by Georgia – convinced her appointees on the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) board of directors to overturn the agency’s prior rejection of a water quality permit.

This was done at Deal’s request … and stands to benefit some pretty powerful interests.

The governor’s betrayal was unanimously rebuked by the S.C. General Assembly – and the S.C. Supreme Court – but the damage was done.

Not only is Georgia’s government-subsidized project moving forward, but it has killed any chance of a private sector port being constructed on the South Carolina side of the Savannah River.

That’s tens of thousands of jobs down the drain, people …

Both ports should be dredged.

The uproar from Charlestonians over the cruise ships makes you wonder if the monied elite wants those nasty old container ships besmirching their beatiful harbor anyway.

Thats the yanks who sold their shacks in CT and bought downtown. The rest of us realize what a stupid mistake it is to NOT build the new terminal for the cruise ships.

Riley has been wishing for years people go downtown, drop their money off and leave. He finally got it, and the SOB’s bitch.

He’s trying to distract from all his ethics and FBI problems.
