First Nikki Haley gave herself an A+++ for her efforts during her first 100 days in office. Now she’s claiming that her administration has been absolutely mistake-free. According to Myrtle Beach television station WBTW, the governor had this to say about her first 100 days in office: “There really are no mistakes we have made.”
She added, “Now, I am my strongest critic. The very first thing I do at the end of the day is say, ‘What could I have done better?’ That’s me and that’s how I handle it. But every policy decision I’ve made, I stand by it.”
To make matters worse, this wasn’t just a slip of the tongue. Haley was proud of what she said. In fact, she tweeted a link to the report, apparently blind to how the public — and her political enemies — would interpret the statement. She even repeated the “no mistakes” bit.
I don’t know what to say. I really don’t.
In fact, I’m too filled with rage to even begin listing all of Haley’s mistakes over the past 100 days.
Ah. What the hell. I’ll give it a shot.
Haley fired Darla Moore and then was totally surprised when both GOPers and Dems were pissed.
And she later lied to nationally syndicated columnist Kathleen Parker, claiming that Moore, the largest benefactor in University of South Carolina history, was ousted because she refused to meet or speak with Haley.
The truth, of course, was that Haley had offered Moore’s spot on the USC Board of Trustees to a campaign contributor days after being elected. (Moore did cancel a meeting with Haley, but it came after the governor had already sent the respected businesswoman a letter in the mail notifying her of her termination.)
Haley claimed that an unknown party filled out her application to the Lexington Medical Center. On the application, the governor had listed her income as $125,000 when she reported to the IRS that year that she had only made $22,000.
Haley let Amazon nix plans for a proposed distribution center in the state and take more than 1,000 new jobs with them.
Haley has been continually involved in a public pissing match with state Treasurer Curtis Loftis, a fellow Republican who, unlike Nikki, actually believes in transparency.
Haley continues to sit on the sidelines while the city of North Charleston and the state Department of Commerce battle over rail lines in Park Circle and the Navy Yard, a fight that is sure to end up in court, threatening both the Port of Charleston and the economy of the entire state.
Haley announced she was writing a memoir weeks, if not days, after she took office, despite accomplishing little more than getting elected during a year when the GOP was virtually unstoppable. And it must be noted that she won by a smaller-than-expected margin, thanks in part to concerns within the Republican Party that Haley was not fit for office.
Haley has so far declined to sue Will Folks, the FITSNews blogger who claims that he had an affair with her.
Haley was photographed playing with her iPad during a speech by President Obama.
Haley evidently takes Michele Bachmann’s phone calls.
Haley is afraid to talk with reporters from many of the state’s news organizations, but she rarely passes up the opportunity to speak to the national press.
Haley felt compelled to write a post on her Facebook page attacking Columbia Fox affiliate WACH, calling them a “tabloid news station” that “has no concept of journalism,” all because they ran a report on the release of an excerpt from Folks’ hypothetical tell-all book, allegedly describing the first make-out session between Haley and the blogger.
I don’t know about you, but I’d give Nikki Haley an A+++ for being a delusional, narcissistic ass.
