… OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT

By FITSNEWS  ||  To hear the South Carolina mainstream media tell it, S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley loves the Palmetto State so much there’s no way a national gig could possibly cause her to lose focus.  Take the chairmanship of the Republican Governors Association (RGA), a job she claims to have passed on this year.

“I told them my focus really needed to be on South Carolina right now and it wasn’t something that I’m interested in,” Haley told The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier .  “So you’re not going to see me attempt, try or want a chairmanship either for this year or next year.”

Really …

“I’m honored and I appreciate the fact they thought of me, but at the same time I respect them enough to know they deserve better at this point,” Haley continued. “Everything I want to do is here and I need to be focused on that.”

Well here… or in India.

Anyway … since the Post and Courier published its story last week, FITS has heard from several sources who tell us a vastly different story about Haley’s “decision” to disavow interest in the RGA leadership post.

One source said Haley made a “hard push” to follow New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as RGA chairman.

“She was working it,” the source – who works for another GOP governor – told us.  “It’s not a secret.”

So … why didn’t Haley get the job?

“She didn’t have the votes,” another source familiar with Haley’s efforts told us.

Ahhhh … and there it is.

The irony of this story?  With South Carolina’s income levels and labor participation scraping the bottom of the national barrel … it might be a good thing for residents of the Palmetto State if Haley were to focus her attention elsewhere.

My guess is that the Republicans are preparing her for vice-presidency if Jeb Bush decides to run for President in 2016.

NIKKI 4 LIFE!!! November 17, 2014 at 3:29 pm

I hope she changes that by decree. She has been a wonderful governor. A job creating machine that loves Jesus , the unborn and supports traditional marriage as ordained by GOD.

In fact I am going to start a petition called ‘NIKKI 4 LIFE’!!!

“supports traditional marriage as ordained by GOD”

Which God, the Jesus God or the Sikh God?

guest November 17, 2014 at 3:58 pm

Democrats don’t believe in God-either one.
Mohammed don’t think of gay marriage either. That would be okay. :-)

LD November 17, 2014 at 4:22 pm

You are partially correct. Dems don’t believe in the same GODs(money, wealth, power) that Republicans do.

guest November 17, 2014 at 4:37 pm

Democrats worship the devil, abortion, the enviroment and a penis in every man’s ass.

Think I will stick with money, power and wealth.

Scooter November 17, 2014 at 11:25 pm

LMAO

LD November 18, 2014 at 2:01 pm

As usual you worship the pagan gods. I don’t worship the devil (or cash, wealth and power), I do worship and appreciate a clean environment after all it was god given. Abortion should be a choice. I’ll skip the penis in the butt, but if a couple wish to engage– let them.
I will say that if going to heaven means I have to hang around with assholes like you, I’ll take hell.

rule of law November 17, 2014 at 6:04 pm

Dems believe so much in money, wealth & power, they have a vested interest in keeping us divided, dependent, and dumb.

LD November 18, 2014 at 2:06 pm

Yep, that’s why the Republicans have to gerrymander districts, suppress the vote and resort to fear mongering to get elected. Republicans couldn’t win in “fair” circumstances. To those of you that suck up to one percent– be careful.

Which God? Haley is her God, and She blesses Sandi’s bank account weekly.

She would never pass the vetting process. Her recent trip to India just put the nail in the coffin of whatever pipe dream she had of being VP.

Fuck you queer. Not long ago YOU demanded Karl give up Tango’s address apparently so another blogger would go do him harm. Karl refused to his credit and asked you ‘why’?

Now that is an ‘obsessed stalker’.

Way to “win others over to Christ” there, Sandi.

Wasn’t there a commandment about bearing false witness?

You’re quite terrible at being a Christian. You should ask your boss Haley how to fake being one better.

guest November 17, 2014 at 4:39 pm

He didn’t ask you ‘WHY’? Liar. GT had me reference it for him.

Smirks November 17, 2014 at 4:44 pm

Tell you what. Closest thing I could find is where Karl owned GrandTango a while back:

https://www.fitsnews.com/2014/10/28/divorce-case-of-nikki-haley-confidant-is-sealed/

You can also click on Karl’s name and read all his comments (which aren’t many), none of which consist of what you’re talking about.

Have fun! :)

guest November 17, 2014 at 4:52 pm

I know what I read. Another blogger was pushing Karl to ‘out’ GT…essentially he told that blogger NO…you posted something about not giving the OTHER blogger a ‘chance’. Karl asked what you meant.

Not a big deal. The truth has never been your friend.

Smirks November 17, 2014 at 4:57 pm

The exchange you’re talking about is in the link I posted. Karl beat down GT and mentioned that he lived in a trailer. Buz asked what his first name is, Karl said “I can’t dox the guy” and Buz agreed that was probably for the best. Karl’s reply to me was to imply GrandTango never had a chance to begin with.

Seriously, I just gave you the link. You can read it yourself, even copy/paste where anyone said what you were even talking about. Go ahead! I implore you! Please, show how wrong I am!

Until then, you’re just proving to everyone here that (1) you can’t read and (2) you’re a liar, and a bad one at that.

Have fun! :)

Thanks for just proving what I posted-and chasing your fucking tail around the cage.

guest November 17, 2014 at 8:51 pm

Just read it again. You wanted another blogger to cause harm to GT. No doubt.
Karl asked you a question about this and you DID NOT respond.

CorruptionInColumbia November 17, 2014 at 4:43 pm

It’s really not hard to find his address. A Google or other search of my Lawrence will turn up that info. Corroborating data will quickly narrow it down to the correct person and address.

Good grief!

Smirks November 17, 2014 at 4:46 pm

Honestly, they have some kind of persecution complex, the two of them. (I’m only assuming Sandi and Tango aren’t the same person, mind you.)

The last thing I’d ever want to do is have the displeasure of being within smelling distance of GrandTango.

CorruptionInColumbia November 17, 2014 at 4:49 pm

They do add comedic value to this site. You have to give them that. Their (or his) antics are kind of watching a “Pro” Wrestling match.

Just got off of a phone call from Tennessee Williams, who told me, and I quote,

Nikki can’t go national. She wouldn’t withstand the vetting of national media. So many skeletons would be dancing it would look like the old “Jason and the Argonauts” movie.
