Vice President Nikki Haley

Barack Obama, the man who cancelled the space program and turned NASA into a muslim outreach program, had the audacity to cite the space program as an American success story.

The man who called on his supporters to take guns to knife fights regretted that rancor has increased under his administration.

While calling for more polite civil discourse, the President took gratuitous shots at Republican Presidential candidates.

Then there was Nikki Haley. She hit it out of the park. It was one of the best responses to a State of the Union address ever and the absolute best since Barack Obama’s election.

She showed humor, passion, and a willingness to hold the President accountable. She went so far as to admit Republicans had to share blame with the President, but presented how the GOP would fix problems it helped create.

Nikki Haley is a wonderful face for the Republican Party with a wonder track record as Governor of South Carolina. I have no doubt Democrats are preparing a smear campaign against her. She’s been through worse in South Carolina politics than the Democrats could ever throw at her.

Last night in South Carolina, Nikki Haley became the only logical choice for Vice Presidential nominee of the GOP. What a wonderful contrast to Barack Obama’s condescension and historic revisions.
