A warning about Nikki Haley

There are several threads currently about Haley, with excerpts from her recent book. As a SC activist who watched her career for years, you better be very concerned about her.
If you think Trump is bad, think of an attractive Trump with impulse control and political savvy. She is just as far right as the Trumpers but can mask it and present it as a legitimate political stance. Being of Indian heritage, she gets a pass on the racist label while still dog-whistling the rednecks and Nazis.
I saw her do it in SC and she has plans to do it in the national stage.

22. But she played that most cleverly

...she still didn't have to remove it. But doing that along with allying with Tim Scott means that she could reliably make a strong showing in South Carolina during the primary and can take credit for the only black Senator currently serving. She is a very formidable candidate coming out of this mess. Remember that Trump wouldn't be President unless that 55% of white women went with him. If that number is no longer possible for Trump it would certainly be available to Haley in many matchups against the wrong Dems.

83. 55% of white women didn't vote for DT.

@58% of eligible voters voted. Accounting for demographics, the math says that @32% of white women voted for DT. If those numbers are not fraudulent in any way. Only 26.5% of all eligible voters voted for DT. And most of those were male.

88. Confused By Something Here

Assuming your premise #s are correct (and they seem correct), you've got "it" getting 32% of white women.
You say 55% didn't vote for "it" so wouldn't 45% that did out of the 58%, be a little over 26%?

94. I tried to find any figures and was generous. I based it on total percentage of Caucasian women.

I agree I erred on the plus rather than the minus.There is no database, unfortunately, that gives accurate numbers of voting data based on race/sex. Most data is culled from exit polling data. It looks odd to see that the actual female vote for DT was @12-15% of the total percentage of eligible voters. Actually, more white women voted for Hillary.

38. Extreme right & ambitious with Asian & female factors

'Washington Post: Nikki Haley says top Trump aides tried to recruit her to undermine President.' CNN, Nov. 10, 2019.

Washington (CNN) — Former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley divulged in her forthcoming memoir that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John Kelly attempted to recruit her to undermine President Donald Trump in an effort to "save the country," according to The Washington Post.

The two former Cabinet members sought Haley's help in their endeavors to subvert the President but she refused, Haley wrote. The Washington Post obtained a copy of her book, titled "With All Due Respect," ahead of its Tuesday release. CNN has not seen a copy of the memoir.

"Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the President, they weren't being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country," Haley wrote.

At one point, Haley wrote that Tillerson also told her people would die if Trump was unchecked. However, Haley said she supported most of Trump's foreign policy decisions that others in the White House tried to block or slow down, according to the Post...https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/10/politics/nikki-haley-tillerson-kelly-save-the-country-recruit-white-house/

She is smarter than Trump and more presentable on a world stage, but I think she is every bit as dangerous, as her political ambitions know no limits. I think she'll do anything to further her political career, which is evident by her public boot-licking of Donald Trump to win over the rabid base. She should not be trusted.

to nail down her approach. Criticism of Trump’s nasty demeanor and his lack of any skill in handling foreign affairs to appeal to traditional republicans, coupled with loyalty and praise for his “accomplishments” to not irritate any of the Trump base.
And, while the criticism of any Governor running for Prez is their lack of foreign policy experience, she obviously has that covered in her resume.

They will do anything! Take the enemy's assistance, foreign funding, sleep with them, sell out their country! Hell, even change the party platform to favor a hostile government and nuclear power just before the 2016 POTUS election!

To this day they support a president that takes Putin's word over our own intelligence agencies reporting out that our elections were hacked by russia. The sad gop and russia will forever be in lowercase when I write about them from here on!

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley wrote in her new memoir, “With All Due Respect," that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former Chief of Staff John Kelly tried and failed to recruit her to subvert President Trump in order to "save the country," according to the Washington Post.

68. The Repubs are running conservative women out of office.

Last year, for instance, their house caucus had 23 women, now it's 13 women who are very angry and embattled over the way they're being treated. Getting rid of senators, elected by whole states for 6 years is harder, and that's the reason they haven't plummeted in number also. It's happening in some state and local governments as well.

And of course there are many attacks on women's equality directed at all of us. Only female misogynists and women who agree with inequality are going to vote for them.

Btw, this is yet another sign pointing to increasing fascism on the right. Fascistic governments are strongly male dominated and don't like empowered women.

what she's part of. There's a lot of hostility on the right toward women in positions traditionally held by men, and men at all levels who agree with that can harness it to take down women at all levels. The more successful the RW fascistic movement became, the more at risk Haley herself would be, not just women in general.

42. But that is another area where she will contrast favorably with Trump

Her family emigrated from India and made a first-generation fortune (legally as far as I know). They started a high-end women's clothing store and invested their profits in real estate.

Nikki does have one black mark on her financial resume. She was employed as a major donor fund raiser, asking corporations for $100,000 plus donations on behalf of the largest hospital consortium in Columbia. Testimony from several people who worked there said she was only seen on premises a time or two, and there were serious questions if she was earning her $100,000 stipend or just receiving it so she would vote the right way as a State legislator. But this all came out during the campaign and didn't really hurt her, and of course it pales in comparison to getting $400 million from Daddy and then teaming with the NY mob to rip people in with real estate deals.

She's got a somewhat...shall we say....sordid personal life. Normally, I don't give two shits. But when it comes to the self righteous, gawd fearin' Republicans, personal life is more than fair game. Won't matter to the wing nut faithful, as we've seen with IQ45, but still. Our side needs to take the damn gloves off. The fate of the Republic demands it. Enough of the "we go high" stuff. It isn't working. When they go low, which they always do, we bury the mother fuckers. Just like the Democratic Party of old.

44. If what Trump has done doesnt bother them, nothing SHE'S done will

I havent heard of her screwing porn stars or cheating or being married 3 times or being accused of rape.
But then again, I dont know what you're referring to!!!

56. She's supposedly had a number of extramarital affairs

One with Will Folks, a Mark Sanford press secretary and Larry Marchant, a consultant for former SC Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer. Both men confessed. She's denies it. I think it's funny as hell coming from self righteous Republicans.

Turns both the House and the Senate into a body that needs a 2/3 vote to pass anything.

55. Agreed. Out of all potential GOP candidates she concerns me the most.


With a good campaign strategist & communications team, I think she could be hard to beat.

To when I said we’re lucky Trump doesn’t have charisma or leadership ability.

Haley covers those bases.

72. Absolutely. They're not going to stop their agenda for the U.S.

This is why we need strong Democratic Women candidates like Warren, AOC, Harris, Klobuchar. We cannot allow these people to turn this country into a Theocratic Fascist state.

Read the page, turn the page, read the page, turn the page, and on and on. A spontaneous word never left her mouth.

84. I do NOT underestimate

this woman at all.

She has already destroyed her reputation with our traditional allies through her slavish toadying as Ambassador to the UN. They see her for the phony that she is.

She destroyed any reputation with me the moment she accepted work with 45's MisAdministration.

87. She's "brown" so ...

Enthusaism among the racists will be tempered, and they comprise a huge chunk of the GOP. The only reason to support her is a play for the middle and independeents, right? No chance that will be a winning strategy for Trump's GOP. They can't afford to alienate the far right with a brown candidate. Even if that brown candidate is as dangerous as Trump.
