Nikki Haley Backs Ted Cruz

PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS, TAKE TWO … S.C. governor Nikki Haley – the new queen of the “Republican” establishment – is now supporting the presidential bid of Tea Party/ evangelical favorite Ted Cruz. “If anybody asks me, that’s what I want to see happen,” Haley told reporters this week.

S.C. governor Nikki Haley – the new queen of the “Republican” establishment – is now supporting the presidential bid of Tea Party/ evangelical favorite Ted Cruz.

“If anybody asks me, that’s what I want to see happen,” Haley told reporters this week.


“The only thing I can say now is my hope and my prayer is that Sen. Ted Cruz can come through this, and that he can push through and really get to where he needs to go because we do want a strong leader, we do want somebody that’s conservative, we do want somebody that’s action minded, so we’ll see what happens, ” Haley said.

Wait … what?

Isn’t Cruz the candidate she flat out lied to regarding her 2016 intentions (after he courted her, no less)?  And isn’t he one of the candidates she warned GOP voters against, saying they shouldn’t listen to the “siren call of the angriest voices?”

Yeah …

Anyway none of that matters now, apparently.

Now instead of being an “angry voice,” Cruz is someone who has been “solid and strong the entire way” – a “disciplined” candidate.

Haley didn’t offer a formal endorsement of Cruz’s campaign, saying “I don’t know that that part matters.”

She’s got that right …

Haley’s “non-endorsement” endorsement of Cruz is likely to be a national non-event given the spectacular flameout of her candidate of choice, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.  South Carolina’s second-term governor went “all in” for Rubio … and lost big.  Not only did she fail to deliver her home state (again), but Haley’s barnstorming for Rubio prior to this month’s Super Tuesday elections utterly failed to move the needle on his behalf.

Will are you allowed to give yourself or paid staff members a plus 2?:)

It’s odd to be talking about Nikki without a pair of balls.

Flip March 17, 2016 at 8:30 am

Maybe she keeps her husband’s in her purse? Oh my!

God, what a transparent, stupid, bitch!

Trump 2016 March 16, 2016 at 5:05 pm

Her last grasp for relevance; and a weak one at that. Time for her to start looking for a job that doesn’t require the taxpayers to support her and her entire family.

Mom March 16, 2016 at 5:37 pm

Generally speaking, former S.C. governors seem to do just fine in finding employment.

Hank March 16, 2016 at 6:09 pm

Well great. Get on with it then. Hopefully not employment I have to help pay for like Mark Sanfraud.

Torch March 16, 2016 at 5:16 pm

She endorsed Newt. She endorsed Rubio. Kiss of death.

Bible Thumper March 16, 2016 at 5:27 pm

Isn’t Cruz the candidate she flat out lied to regarding her 2016 intentions (after he courted her, no less)?  
Not aaccording to media that actually name there sources and claim to be fair and balanced.

J.Smith March 16, 2016 at 6:17 pm

This is hilarious.Haley the alleged whore per someone convicted convicted of CDV is exposed as being a political whore as well.Why does this surprise anyone?She needs a damn job.

Tazmaniac March 16, 2016 at 6:32 pm

BT, I’ll give you this much, you buddy, are tougher than woodpecker lips. No matter what kind of stink she leaves you dutifully come behind her spraying Febreze. +10! based solely on dedication.

Bible Thumper March 16, 2016 at 6:36 pm

If I can’t find the story written any where else, then it is likely false. Don’t you agree that anonymous sources who admit they are repeating hearsay, might just have lie or are repeating a lie?

Hank March 16, 2016 at 6:38 pm

So what do you think happened when Rafael asked Nikki for her support?

Bible Thumper March 17, 2016 at 8:37 am

It was written by the National Review, that Cruz and Bush each had dinner at the Governor’s mansion and they each knew that Haley was having dinner with Rubio last before deciding.
They prabably suspected that Rubio was the most likely pick, because he was last.

Duke March 16, 2016 at 6:38 pm

yet you always support Nikki and her “stories”

Duke March 16, 2016 at 6:44 pm

or how about this one –

“Haley was deceptive about her reasons for having made the change. Haley’s office initially said she had wanted a “fresh set of eyes” on the board; Haley later told Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker that she’d ousted Moore—who’d given $70 million to the university whose business school bears her name—for not returning Haley’s phone calls and postponing a meeting. E-mails and correspondence from Haley’s office, later made public, revealed, however, that Haley had chosen Moore’s replacement a month before trying to meet with her.”

My favorite take-away from that article:

” Will Folks, a former spokesman for then–Governor Sanford who worked for Haley in 2007, is a political consultant who runs a popular South Carolina blog, FITSNews. He is coy about his book contract but has released a steamy excerpt on his website. “If she were to appear on a national ticket, it would be the end of that ticket,” Folks told me.”

Bible Thumper March 16, 2016 at 11:50 pm

2011 misstatement. She hadn’t even gotten her boots wet yet.

Duke March 17, 2016 at 6:23 am

I don’t like her but Fits is adept at throwing chit. None of which sticks.

Speak D Truth March 16, 2016 at 6:06 pm

I guess this proves that she will jump from man to man to get what she wants.

shifty henry March 16, 2016 at 11:27 pm

That “jumping” with her cabinet appointments hasn’t worked out well …

Squishy123 March 16, 2016 at 6:33 pm

Well… there goes Cruz’s chances.

Tazmaniac March 16, 2016 at 6:34 pm

Has anyone tried eating crow with curry? Just wondering what she is experiencing.

Tricky Nikki & Dirty Tricks Cruz, 2016

Nat March 16, 2016 at 7:35 pm

I and most of the talking heads on TV thought she was talking about Trump, not Cruz. She and the rest of the establishment types certainly doesn’t want Trump to win. At least she’s not BSing about believing he is Presidential material unlike like Donald’s gimp, Fat Boy Christie.

“siren call of the angriest voices”

Haley Sucks March 16, 2016 at 9:01 pm

Scum Sucking Nikki is the kiss of death to any candidate. Other than appointing Scott, I bet you can not name a candidate for major office that Scum Sucker endorsed and won !!!!! Scum Sucking Haley is a first class political whore and a trailer trash one too.

Scrappy March 16, 2016 at 9:22 pm

Oh don’t forget she gave us Tom Rice. What a gift that turned out to be.

erneba March 16, 2016 at 9:17 pm

Well, that was a no-brainier.

true blue March 16, 2016 at 9:36 pm

John Rainey that loved So Carolina passionately, said in print,”SHE IS THE MOST I DISHONEST GOV SINCE THE RECONSTRUCTION”, I believed him, because I was privy to all the legal briefs that I read in their entirety. That was what John Rainey said, and I concur, however I will add the fallowing: Mrs. Haley behaves like an opportunist, this is in itself is low class, she will do anything, and say whatever it takes to get ahead. Her handwriting is very revealilng, it says a lot about her. She has some issues to resolve. I do hope she reads this. Not all of us forget, in fact we remember well.

shifty henry March 16, 2016 at 11:39 pm

That’s intriguing — can you tell us more?

Damn, NIMRATA dun been passed around more than Tuesday Weld in “Where the Boys Are”.YOU BETCHA!

She is so desperate. ….go Trump 2016.

Gypsies, tramps and theives. That song keep playing in my head.

Manray9 March 17, 2016 at 11:09 am

Nikki seems to have much more credibility with the national media than she does with the people of SC.

Haley Just Like Graham March 17, 2016 at 6:44 pm

Over the years she has proven herself repeatedly to be fucked up in the head.

dwb619 March 17, 2016 at 11:12 pm

Drop the “up”.
