Neocon Nikki Haley Endorses Progressive Mitt Romney

Those in the Tea Party movement, who were skeptical of Governor Haley’s anti-establishment message during the campaign, had their suspicions confirmed today, as Necon Nikki rejected Tea Party constitutional conservative Michele Bachmann and instead, endorsed big government progressive Mitt Romney. It certainly makes one wonder what might be next on Haley’s agenda. Perhaps it’s the “sales tax swap” scam that’s already been floated by her administration.

There turned out to be quite a few Tea Party posers in the 2010 campaign, who are now exposing themselves with their endorsements. Governor Haley is clearly the queen of posers in this regard. She passed the largest budget in South Carolina history, gave tax breaks to those who could afford a 2nd home (but not average citizens who really needed the tax break).

So far, Nikki Haley has been a huge disappointment to Tea Party activists in SC, who are still waiting the smaller, more efficient, less intrusive government Haley promised during her campaign.

The fact of the matter is, Haley wants even more revenue to feed the bloated and wasteful bureaucratic mess that is South Carolina government, including the broken School System’s bloated bureaucracy and the debt riddled Transportation Department. Rather than cutting layers of bureaucrats, administrators and paper shufflers, who do little more than siphon off resources our State Government can’t afford, Haley’s priority is to endorse a progressive neocon like Mitt Romney.

Considering Governor Haley’s track record so far, she is looking a lot less like the constitutional conservative she pretended to be during her campaign, and more like an establishment political hack, heading straight for a one term Governorship.

    Yeah, I was saddened by that too. At least she didn’t back Mr. NAFTA/GATT Gingrich, fiscal destroyer of our economy as we know it. With all the flaws, this Global Warming alarmist has, I still don’t get why folk in SC seem to want to back this blathermouth (Gingrich that is). Not my business (w.r.t. to SC) Scott as you know, but glad that I can give my opinion of Newt freely here. :)

      The reason South Carolinians are supporting Newt is that they really don’t like Mitt Romney and they are willing to overlook Gingrich’s past in an effort to block Mitt’s nomination.

      Voters in SC don’t trust the press and Gingrich’s ex-wife coming out 2 days before the election with a smear didn’t sit well around here. Several people have told me they are now going to support Newt because of that. They don’t like the press telling them who to support and will vote for the opposite candidate.

      Unfortunately, SC is loaded with Neocons, who can’t support Ron Paul’s vision for America, but the fact of the matter is that U.S. military interventionism is coming to end, whether they like it our not. With a debt of 16 trillion, heading toward 20 trillion, and a struggling economy, we can no longer afford the 900 military bases in 150 countries that is required to be the world’s police force. Printing money like we have been doing is only going to cause the impending economic collapse to occur sooner.

      Personally, I don’t think that Romney, Gingrich or Santorum has any legitimate plans to shrink the size & scope of government. They are all status quo establishment politicians who will continue to spend America into oblivion.

        I agree with you assessment Scott. Romney’s a RiNO, Gingrich is a Neocon and Santorum is a Neocon lite. Only reason I’m even backing Santorum among the 4 is because of Paul’s handsoff stance with Iran since I can’t bear seeing such an evil regime getting a nuke despite being a don’t tread on me kind of guy myself. Still if Santorum drops out which he might, then I will either support Paul or not vote at all in the Primaries (other then local candidates which I will do) since I won’t support Romney in the Primaries and won’t support Gingrich at all period because he helped destroy our economy (via NAFTA/GATT). I know Santorum voted for these idiotic bills too (not sure about Paul since I’ve not check his voting record on this one) but Gingrich was the leader of this morass. I’ll vote third party if Gingrich get’s the nod (pinch my nose with both hands hard and pull the lever with my elbow if Romney gets it). Not that I hold grudges, but when you are responsible for the destruction of our Republic in my eyes, then there is consequences. :)
