IT’S A THIN LINE … BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley has a love-hate relationship with lots of people … and apparently entire states, too.

Take Georgia, which bore the brunt of Haley’s wrath in the wake of last week’s big (or not-so-big) winter storm …

Haley came into office talking all sorts of trash about Georgia, although the receipt of a few campaign contributions (and a national speaking gig) prompted her to change her tune … resulting in perhaps the single greatest economic sellout any governor of any state has ever perpetrated on his or her own people.

Haley’s advocacy on Georgia’s behalf cleared the way for a taxpayer-funded expansion of the government-run port in Savannah – while effectively killing a public-private port in Jasper County, S.C.

Yeah … which state is she leading again?

Anyway, having gift-wrapped a major competitive advantage for our neighbors across the river, Haley is once again in trash talk mode – criticizing the state for its response to the underwhelming winter storm.

“While I was trying to fix South Carolina, I was furious at Georgia for not taking care of that,” Haley told the Historic Rotary Club of Charleston, S.C.

Haley added that she was proud of her cabinet’s response to the storm … which is curious in light of the serious traffic problems experienced in Charleston during the aftermath of the storm (oh, and the fact that Haley’s Transportation chief was busted during the debacle drinking and driving at eight o’clock in the morning).

According to the governor, though, things went swimmingly …

“When you go through a storm, whether it’s a hurricane or winter storm, our team stands ready,” Haley said. “I am very proud of team South Carolina and the way they handled the storm.”

Hmmmmm …

We beg to differ …

When you don’t care about anyone but yourself, there is no stress. Just look at Obama…after all the damage he’s done. He does not give a $#!* who suffers. He’s happy to drink the champs, and snort the lines…as long as we pay for it…

Ditto, my friend, I expected – saw the future, with a Haley win. Continue as Grand Tango would do, and watch the money flow into the toilet of SC politicians and outsiders that jockey for our primary. 2016’s primary will proberly “blow our socks off”. Can’t wait to see it ! Yes, Haley is a greasy east indian elected by preverts from SC. Sic, I like ya, but don’t come very close, my friend.

Dear God that picture of Haley just scared the shit out of me…what the hell did she shoot herself with a makeup gun? If we have a hurricane its going to be like Katrina, Haley and the teabaggers have cut state employees to the bone. Haley was quoted in a private meeting of her disdain for state employees yet the ones on her payroll are laughing all the way to the bank. There are not enough Troopers, DNR officers SLED agents and DOT workers to save all those people on the coast. This is a ticking time bomb.

Haley’s successes:

Rejected un-affordable Medicaid Expansion
Against Common Core, government enforced education
Beat Obama trying to pilfer Union jobs from SC w/ Boeing
Lured Continental Tire
Helped expand Charter School potential
Beat Obama to fight Voter fraud.
Signed Amazon incentives
Lured Bridgestone
Evicted the filthy and criminal ‘Occupy’ Communists
Helped Michelin expansion
Incentives to Nephron Pharmaceuticals…

Haley has made some mistakes, but can you imagine what horrible shape the state would be in if Sheeheen was gov. and jumped to his knees, and inflicted Obama on South Carolina, instead of fighting him????

Government fines, fees unpaid – lawyers – lawsuits – hacking wedsites – etc = SC citizens pay more. Get used to the Haley way. Or as you would , call it the Obama way. Hopefully the many jobs that were created by Haley can off-set the issue. By the way, get ready for the Katrina gas tax. More from your friendly republicans. See ya at the pump GT.

Sounds like the myth-lords have completely taken over your brain…so you must be an ignorant, drone liberal.

I don’t care of their personal habits or ethnicity, as long as they govern fairly, and as they pledged. Graham is like a liberal, he is a liar…Scott is true to his word, and Haley does more good than bad…but I’d choose a Total Conservative over her, Anything is better than the corrupt and immoral Ds. .

Clue: Try thinking for yourself so you won’t look so stupid…

Did Georgia get more snow and ice than S.C.? Was it her brother that was stuck on the interstate? The storm was predicted well in advance and any sane person would have made arrangements to stay home or get where you were going in advance of this “blizzard”. Can’t she control the weather? Jeez, Nicki, lighten up, go build a snowman.

Did she and her team actually do anything during last week’s storm? Is she claiming to have done a good job because we are not Atlanta? Which hurricane scenario did she handle?

One of the Republican mantras speaks to taking responsibility for one’s actions. I implore all republican voters to accept responsibilty for the mistake of placing this governor in office and vote against her in November. Do not reward her behavior with re-election. Suck it up and take a stand against bad government and for South Carolina.
