Dems Love Nikki Haley’s Speech

The White House seems to be crushing on the Governor of South Carolina because of her speech. From The Hill: “White House heaps praise on Haley after SOTU response.” South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s (R) response to President Obama’s State of the Union address won her praise from the very place she was tasked with criticizing: the White House.  “I have a lot of admiration for the governor,” White House chief of staff Denis McDonough told reporters at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Read more […]

Nikki Haley Admits It; She was Attacking Republicans Attracted to Trump

The country is lit up w/ a populist fever & the GOP responds by digging in, criticizing the GOP candidates dominating polls?! NOT SMART. — Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) January 13, 2016 I think Laura Ingraham’s comment about Nikki Haley’s response to the State of the Union speech was quite astute. Haley simply brushes it off in her interview on The Today Show: Haley angered some conservative pundits with her response to Obama’s address by seemingly saving her sharpest Read more […]

Paul Ryan Says Obama’s Hits on Trump “Degrades the Presidency,” but Defends Haley

There is no love lost between Paul Ryan and me, but not everything about this interview was bad. In fact, while disagreeing with Trump, he explained one aspect of his rise quite well. “I think people are really nervous. I think people are really anxious. And that’s because they believe that the country as they know it, this American idea — the condition of your birth doesn’t determine the outcome of your life  … so many people are worried that’s leaving us. “People are going to say, I Read more […]

Did Anyone Else Hate Nikki Haley’s Response to… Donald Trump? Ted Cruz?

The speech above was purported to be a response to Barack Obama’s State of the Union message. Hardly. I only bothered to listen to the speech because my Facebook feed yesterday was full of attacks on Ann Coulter for the tweets about Haley’s speech. While I didn’t bother to find out what Coulter wrote (because I don’t really care), I did get curious about Haley’s speech. And, for the record, I have heard nothing but good things about Haley. I certainly liked her more than Trump and, in Read more […]

Nikki Haley Dreams the Impossible Dream: Republicans Will Cut Spending

I mentioned how Nikki Haley seemed to robotically read her teleprompter. At 5:53 comes a line I only heard at first. I Had to go back and check it on the video because I couldn’t believe she delivered it with a straight face. But she did! the robotic simile didn’t waver as she spewed nonsense all over viewers: If we held the White House, taxes would be lower for working families, and we’d put the brakes on runaway spending and debt. Seriously? The Republicans who gave Obama (and their Read more […]

The RNC Shows Contempt For Sarah Palin

Perhaps some of you will think I am making an unjustified inference. After all, the RNC did not release a statement attacking Sarah Palin. They merely failed to mention her. But there is no way I can imagine them forgetting about her by accident. “Today marks the beginning of Women’s History Month, which gives us all the opportunity to celebrate women’s contributions to our country throughout our history—and especially to honor those women who fought to make this country a more just and Read more […]

Where’s Liberal Outrage over Riot and Assassination Talk?

Assassination talk is all around us, and the media are silent or dismissive on the subject. Once again the media double standard is in play. It’s like playing a game in the World Series where the umpires have two rule books, one for each team. An error is a hit for one team, and a hit is an error for the other team. There’s even been talk about riots if Mitt Romney wins. Here are some examples as posted at InfoWars: “If obama dont get re-elected & romney wins .. on life every white Read more […]
