Nikki Haley Will Speak at Republican National Convention, Continues to Ignore S.C. Uninsured

The glitz and glamour tour has paid off. South Carolina’s dismal excuse for a governor will be speaking at the Republican National Convention later this month.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, the first female governors of their states, are among party leaders slated to address the gathering that begins Aug. 27. Martinez has the additional distinction of being the country’s first female Hispanic governor.

Haley, who has traveled out of state more than spending time with her own state’s uninsured, will again glam it up as she caters to the national spotlight.

While it’s all good for the glitz queen to assume her natural role of pageantry, the people of her state lose yet again.

Here, let’s look at the facts.

    Let me guess. Their message is going to be all the “good” the Republican Party has done for women in the last four years, trying to pander for votes, as if women were unable to look at the actual legislation Republicans have shoved through to put the government in charge of their own bodies.

    Those people out there, who actually vote for members of the Republican Party, must not ever read the news or watch these fools in action, and never see just how ridiculous, unqualified and desperate for attention these people are! Otherwise, how could they sleep at night?

    The Republican Dream is my very worst nightmare….
