SOUTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR PIVOTS TOWARD A BIGGER STAGE

|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley swears she isn’t angling for national office, but several recent maneuvers indicate she’s looking to rekindle her declining national profile.  Having been shut out of her bid to lead the Republican Governors Association, Haley is looking for other ways to make a national splash.

One example?  Last month’s press conference with S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson on the issue of immigration.

According to our sources, Haley made an aggressive play to participate in this event.  In fact her staff reportedly attempted to strong-arm Wilson regarding the timing of the press event announcing South Carolina’s participation in a lawsuit against Barack Obama‘s recent immigration orders.

“She wanted ownership of that lawsuit – badly,” a source familiar with the process tells FITS.

Hmmm …

More recently, Haley has taken to Facebook to offer her thoughts on the upcoming legislative session … not the one in Columbia, S.C., mind you, but the one in our nation’s capital.

Take a look …

Hold up … Haley’s trying to make hay on the issue of socialized medicine?  Really?   Because the last time we checked her record there wasn’t quite so “conservative” (click HERE and HERE).

Also Haley talking about a commitment to fiscal conservatism is pretty ironic …

And immigration? Ummm … yeah.  About that.

Nonetheless, all of the things that put Haley in the national limelight four years ago remain in place: She’s a female. She’s a minority. She’s (relatively) young.  And in addition to those “attributes” (none of which Haley had a damn thing to do with) she’s ambitious beyond belief.

No matter who gets hurt …

The fact Haley is pivoting back to the national stage so soon after her 2014 reelection should surprise no one.  We expect her to continue zeroing in on national issues – especially as the 2016 “First in the South” circus comes to the Palmetto State.

Compared to all the other nutballs the GOP trots out on a national level, Haley ‘seems’ like a safe choice. Can’t wait to see how the rest of the country responds to Trikki Nikki.

NIkki Haley is a gift from God. America needs her to lead.
Today a terrorist attack in Paris. Obama can’t even mention ‘Islam’ in fear of upsetting his religious soulmates. Disgusting.
We need a President that has America in his/her heart and soul-not a family,acadmia,spiritually trained ‘closet’ muslim with a marxist world-view that stands with our enemies in crisis and seeks to punish this country for the past sins he believes this country is guilty of.

Nimrata (Nikki) Haley is a piece of shit. America as a whole, will not stand for a Haley, or an SC politician as President. On election day there were too many Dems who sat on their asses lazily, but there were also too many dumb asses who did vote incorrectly. There is no WE, or US, there is a segment of this state’s population that eats up her bullshit, and a segment tired of it. The only thing good about a potential candidacy is that she will properly vetted by real investigative journalists.

Yeah, she’ll ‘lead’. With all of the ‘real’ issues in this country (income inequity, incarceration rates, insane defence spending, cost of higher education, stupid drug laws, etc, etc) let’s focus on building a pipeline to take oil from Canada to deliver to China. Or ensuring we’ll never have affordable healthcare. Or work harder to keep out the evil brown people.

Answer the question Will, or you may end up in Haley Hell. I like that title for our esteemed Governor HALEY’S HELL. So appropriate.

Let’s see – can’t even manage a piss-poor state, continuing poor results in education, transportation, security, crime. Leads a state the establishment knows will always vote for them. So what is her value proposition again?

All true, but she was just re-elected. What does that say of the people of SC?

Nine guesses.

No nationally-prominent Republicans (with an eye on higher office) will touch Haley. They’re smart enough to know she can’t stand up to national media attention. Too many skeletons. The complacent and tame media of SC let her slide, but increased focus on her would bring nothing good on a national scale.

The biggest obstacle facing Governor Haley is not mentioned. Far and away the event that will cause the most damage to her ambition is the allegation of a fling with Will Folks.
Imagine this scenario: A Republican gets elected Pesident. Haley is nominated as Secretary of the Department of Something or The Other. Will will be called to testify before congress as to the nature, duration, and juicy details of that alleged relationship. I say that because I always wanted to use the term “Will will” in a sentence.

I am on Nikki’s side and I hope this video will help her:

Remember when sic(k) willie promised and promised to publish a tell-all book with pages and pages devoted to his relationship with Trikki-Nikki?

Our Funding Editor has been watching and waiting for his book to show up in the local dollar stores. So far, no book.

Well, when sic(k) willie gets around to making good on his promise (yawn), we expect it will expose so much cr@p about Trikki that she will never get elected again.

Kind of like when Markie Sanfraud confessed to his extra-marital affair.

Just proves, if you wrap a toad in the Republicrat flag in S.C.; after the next election you will hear some elected official say, “knee-deep, knee-deep, knee-deep.”

Knee-deep in a host of foolishness that makes our Funding Editor’s head swim after her third doubble Jacck Daneiels and Meteramucil and cOke’r’kOla.

Sorry, she insisted on typing that.

Sic(k) willie is such a paid political pimp.
