Nikki Haley wants ‘Battle for Boeing’ to be 2012 issue
For weeks, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) has been working to bring more attention to a local fight between Boeing and the National Labor Relations Board.

Could it be the next Wisconsin — a showdown between a prominent (and newly elected) Republican governor and national labor groups? Haley seems to hope so.

At a press conference packed with prominent Republicans at the Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday morning, Haley argued that the future of the country is at stake. “This is an issue that may have started in South Carolina, but we want to make sure it never touches another state,” she said. “This an unbelievable attack on not just right-to-work states but every state that’s attempting to put their people to work.”

At issue is a complaint the NRLB filed against Boeing, claiming the airplane manufacturer decided to build a plant in South Carolina in retaliation for a strike in Washington state. Labor officials say this is merely an attempt to punish attempts at illegal retaliation against striking workers. Republicans say the complaint amounts to an effort to place strictures on companies who want to relocate projects away from unionized plants.

1. Why any governor would be proud that his state is full of scabs is beyond me.

4. Oh, don't I know it. I just find it sad that people are so ignorant about how union members make
more, have better insurance and pension, and better working conditions, and that "sticking it" to the unions somehow improves their own lots. It's pathetic, really.

5. Nimrata Randhawa aka Nikki Haley..... will drop her drawers.....
for the Easter Bunny, IMO. It's just amazing this twit got away with those two alleged affairs..... to married Republic Party guys admitting they bonked her when out of town on party business. Anybody know any married guys who admitted to affairs they didn't commit?

I didn't think so.

Republic Party voters forgive Republic Part Pols of virtually......anything.
