CHRIS CORLEY TO SOUTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR: “YOUR VP BID IS OVER”

S.C. Rep. Chris Corley – who seems to revel in the controversy he invites – mixed it up on social media this week with “Republican” governor Nikki Haley, mocking the establishment GOP favorite for her national flameout in the context of a dispute over state funding for infrastructure.

How bad was it?

“Brutal,” one state lawmaker told us.

Here’s how it went down …

Having failed to enlist her crony capitalist allies in this particular political battle, Haley took to social media – challenging members of the S.C. House to view the ongoing road funding debate from her perspective.

“The House is about to take money from the roads that need repair most to pay for local pet projects,” Haley wrote on her Facebook page, claiming the move “makes zero sense.”

Corley disputed Haley’s reading of the legislation – saying “nobody in the House has heard of this.”

But it was his next broadside that really left a mark: Mocking Haley’s vice-presidential aspirations – and particularly her support of failed establishment politicians like U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

“Jeb and Rubio are out so there is no need to try to make it look like you are tough on the legislature!” Corley wrote.  “Your VP bid is over.”

Wow …

Haley’s rejoinder to Corley?

“The fact that you don’t know what is going on in the House is exactly why someone needs to file to run against you,” she wrote.  “Anyone in Aiken interested in being a House member, filing ends March 30th.”

“I don’t think your efforts to recruit anyone have worked so far,” Corley shot back.  “Actually … since Lil’ Marco didn’t pan out and you won’t be VP why don’t you move to my district in two years and run against me yourself?”

Damn!

Haley was having a difficult time of it on the national stage even before Rubio’s campaign imploded, but his decision to exit the race effectively doomed her chances of ever appearing on a national ticket.

(Which assumes she could have survived the vetting).

And while Haley has since sought to latch on to the campaign of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, it seems unlikely he will ever trust her.  Not only that, her overtures to Cruz appear to have angered many of her former Rubio, um, “allies.”

Which could lead to bigger headaches for her down the road …

Haley has been quite irascible since Rubio’s departure from the race, although state lawmakers don’t appear to be interested in playing her games.

Except for Corley, of course … who seems to relish trolling the governor.

One thing is clear: Haley’s attempt to project strength at the state level after falling flat on her face nationally doesn’t appear to be winning her many converts.

So much potential yet she pissed it away with her politically correst decisions to remove the confederate flag,endorse establishment loser Rubio and support of Amnesty.

Tom Ervin was right.

Reply
Bible Thumper March 23, 2016 at 8:08 am

Before Ervin dropped out of the governor’s race and endorsed Sheheen and before the massacre at Mother Emanuel in Charleston, Tom Ervin supported removing the Confederate flag from Statehouse grounds.

Independent candidate Tom Ervin, however, said he agreed with Sheheen that it’s time to remove the Confederate flag.

“For some it is a symbol of oppression and for others it is a symbol of states’ rights,” Ervin said in a statement. “A symbol this divisive should not be flown in front of the Statehouse. Rather, it should be placed in our State Museum so we can remember our past and look to our future.”

She is a hack of the “ruling class establishment, a proven liar and incompetent, alleged adulterer, sycophant of the Lexington “illegal gambling ring”, gets rid of competent employees and replaces them with political hacks and incompetent people (killer Koller, bloody bitch Kitzman, too drunk St. Onge, Gestapo Keel, the list goes on).

Corley was commenting on Facebook while the chamber was in session (during budget week mind you). Perhaps he should shut the fuck up and do his job the tax payers are paying him for instead of trolling of Facebook. Its budget week you dumb fuck. By the way after the original post, Haley had a staffer write the replies. Corley didn’t get a page to type his multiple replies. He is a waste of tax payer money and had no clue what was even happening on the floor. Only an idiot would think this was a good thing
