    Haley’s Mark on 2012

    Haley’s Mark on 2012

    Thanks to my friend Mike for a referring me to a really fascinating article on South Carolina. I really don’t like playing the “who in 2012” game, since — in my opinion — it is way too far out to tell. However, this article did a great job of laying out the climate in an important primary state:

    “[Governor] Haley won the Republican nomination running as a reformer against three white men with far more name recognition and far more seasoned political operations. In typical South Carolina style, there were also nasty whispering campaigns directed at Haley, fueled by a conservative blogger who claimed he and Haley had carried on an affair.

    But rather than derail her rise, the allegations seemed to help power it. Haley ran commercials with her husband and children and offered herself as a chance to break with the state’s dark political past. She got a big lift from Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, who defended Haley publicly and traveled to South Carolina to endorse her.

    Haley said she will break with her predecessor and endorse a candidate in the Republican primary. She backed Romney in 2008, and Romney returned the favor last year. But, for now, she’s keeping her options open.”

    I really like Nikki Haley and I hope her opinion plays into the selection. It sounds like it will.

    It will as long as it's not Romney or another Blue-Blood RINO.

    For 2012 campaign this should be on every conservative website in BOLD letters!

    The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

    Barack Obama – 2006

    What! There's no half baked lefty comic that has (that includes Matthews, for that's all he has become) savaged her, yet? No Indian Jokes? No portrayals, from Tina What's-her-face?

    If you have the chance, listen to Haley being interviewed.

    She's the real deal.

    1. A belated Happy St. Paddy's, Kathleen.

    2. Fyi, Sarah Palin mentioned Haley during her speech in India, her best since the convention afaic.

    3. Although Palin alienated me by resigning as governor, developments like this keep me from taking her completely off my list. But it will take a lot to make me move her up.
