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.
“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?”
Anyway none of that matters now, apparently.
(Click to play)
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.
RAPID REACTION >>>
@fitsnews Sooner or later, she'll pick the right one.

Swing and a miss! Two strikes, no balls.
HA! +2 (while we await the rest of the count).
Will are you allowed to give yourself or paid staff members a plus 2?:)
Somebody’s green with envy, just in time for St. Pat’s!
It’s odd to be talking about Nikki without a pair of balls.
Maybe she keeps her husband’s in her purse? Oh my!
God, what a transparent, stupid, bitch!
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.
Generally speaking, former S.C. governors seem to do just fine in finding employment.
Well great. Get on with it then. Hopefully not employment I have to help pay for like Mark Sanfraud.
She endorsed Newt. She endorsed Rubio. Kiss of death.
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.
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.
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.
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?
So what do you think happened when Rafael asked Nikki for her support?
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.
yet you always support Nikki and her “stories”
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.”
2011 misstatement. She hadn’t even gotten her boots wet yet.
That Kool-Aid must taste good!
I don’t like her but Fits is adept at throwing chit. None of which sticks.
I guess this proves that she will jump from man to man to get what she wants.
That “jumping” with her cabinet appointments hasn’t worked out well …
Well… there goes Cruz’s chances.
Has anyone tried eating crow with curry? Just wondering what she is experiencing.
Tricky Nikki & Dirty Tricks Cruz, 2016
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”
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.
Oh don’t forget she gave us Tom Rice. What a gift that turned out to be.
Well, that was a no-brainier.
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.
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.
Nikki seems to have much more credibility with the national media than she does with the people of SC.
Over the years she has proven herself repeatedly to be fucked up in the head.
Drop the “up”.
