    They respect nothing and no-one. Disgusting.

      And the thing they respect the least is the black man at the podium. They never pass up an opportunity to show their low-class followers just how little respect and regard they have for him.

        How ironic that it is always the same minorities like nikki haley who have themselves been demeaned and derided for their skin color and race who will turn around and beg to be used as mouthpieces of hate and derision.

        Nikki Haley is desperate to be accepted by the same groups of people who hate and denigrate her as much as they would the President. She thinks that if she joins in she will somehow become less Indian and more “white” and acceptable and no longer “other”.

        Sorry Nikki, you’ll always be what was that the same people you are trying to emulate and suck up to call you during your campaign? Oh yes, they called her a “rag head”.

        President Obama will have the last laugh in all of this. Nikki will in no time disappear. Another unfortunate tool exploited and discarded when she no longer serves any useful purpose for her masters.

          Don’t mistake Haley for a “minority” just because she’s a woman or her skin is darker than most Caucasians. She’s an ambitious, class concious Indian-American who has zero sympathy for civil rights. She’s entirely out to benefit herself and her family.

          IOW,she fits perfectly into the modern GOP with their motto: “I’ve got mine. Screw you.”

          Amen, Audrey. Wouldnt have stated it any better. These self hating minorities crack me up. Nikki, you will always be the “rag head” in their eyes, just as Michael Steel and his ilk will always be the “N” word.

    I would get upset if she was tweeting, updating her fb status, or online shopping. But I can’t tell what is she doing? I know there was a question answer after our President’s opening speech, maybe she was getting her query together. For now, I will give her the benefit of the doubt until we get more info. She looks hella dumb doing this while everybody else is paying attention though.

    POTUS speech was very good.

    Looks like Ms. Haley did not do her homework before attending one of the most important classes she will ever attend! Not a great student. My brother said to me once while we were departing the car to have dinner at a really, really, really nice resturant: I said something about classy, and he replied, “You bring the class with you.” I have never forgotten his statement. You have to nurture the class the “class that is within” you then the world and others to will see it. So, we see hers right here in full view. Some of these people will never give POTUS the respect of his office as President of the United States of America. But he had the class to say on his victory night, “And I will be your President too(Also). Remember! Now that is nurtured class , First Class!!!!

    I was thinking how much I would love to be able to be in a situation to collaborate with Barack Obama as those governors are. If that opportunity was extended my way I wouldn’t miss a millisecond of it. I believe that our President will be someone who becomes an historic figure even beyond the position he has. This is going to be Governor Haley’s image for posterity, someone who is self absorbed, disrespectful and dismissive of her opportunity.

      Reminds me of a familiar saying of my grandma – ‘You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot force him to drink.’ Of course, Little Nikki may be so cognizant of her opportunity that she might just be making notes.

      “I believe that our President will be someone who becomes an historic figure even beyond the position he has…”

      Absolutely spot on cuphalffull…

      And so many of these very short-sighted, petty, close-minded people will absolutely rue the day the conspired to disrespect this magnificent and once in a lifetime President…

    I don’t know anything about you Ms. Nikki but this one picture leads me to believe you are quite rude and disrespectful. Tighten up!! Just imagine if you get a call from little Rena’s teacher saying she was texting or surfing the web while he/she was speaking, you wouldn’t like that and you would probably punish her. Same goes for you Governor. The Commander-in-Chief is talking, you listen!!

      So true – these Republicans are so disrespectful of authority, and they don’t consider the example they’re setting for the younger generation. They certainly aren’t role models, and they’re breeding a generation of people who will not understand what the word “respect” means, and when to give it.

    How disrespectful!
    Having just given my son a lecture on respect and then seeing this from a person in her position how are we meant to teach our kids respect when they can see this kind of behaviour from elected officials. Regardless of a person’s political affiliation they should show respect to the President.

    Is she really the governor of one of our states???!!!! I wish my mother had been there….she would have taken care of that rudeness with one look. She did not tolerate rudeness, and neither should we. This behavior is insupportable.

    isn’t that amazing!!! I don’t know how to do it–but photo get this photo out for all to see.

    Just Tweeted this out to SC Democrats and posted on my facebook page.

    We honestly try to do better than this in South Carolina. I understand none of you believe that, but I know people who have worked for 20 years losing ground.

    I saw strong people weep and get physically ill in the last year.

    We had an excellent Democratic candidate for Governor. It took 900 thousand dollars worth of attack ads for this woman to squeak out a narrow win. Ads funded by various right wing groups.

      William, you neglected to mention how much of that money poured in from special interest groups out of state like the Koch Brothers. What got our Governor elected was outside special interest money, not honest discourse with the people of South Carolina. But, like I keep telling people who are losing their jobs now thanks to her stupidity with regards to budgeting “you get the government you deserve”.

    I am just so disturbed by this photo. I think it just speaks to the whole right wing attitude. I’m not very savy about using my PC, but please, if you can, get this picture out to everyone.

    these gop people can in all magnitude of ignorance and arrogance – just when you think you have seen their most crapy side, the show you that there is more where that crap comes from.

    she has definetly made it very high on my list of the people I despise – she has the nerve to show disrespect to someone whose is way above her in all aspects!!

    My apologies for my Overlord Nikki….she’s quite immature….she reminds me of a teenager or college student when I watch her. I want to move back to Illinois. It’s quite depressing living in this state at times.

    How rude! What would she say if a South Carolina legislator was doing this while SHE was speaking? It does not present a great model for our students to follow. Unfortunately, in our state this picture with really endear her to the “tea-baggers” that are running our beautiful state. So sad!

  18. March 1, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    Naughty little girl. My 3rd Grade Teacher would say, “Ms. Haley, you won’t learn if you don’t pay attention.” But then, as I recall, during the governor’s campaign it was very clear Ms Haley didn’t know anything beyond her slogans. Obviously..SC has to maintain a consistent political track record.. Next???

    I am a native of South Carolina.

    I came of age during the Civil Rights Movement. My family and myself has experienced intense struggle because of rascism and segregation as elders. South Carolinians of African descent fought long and hard in the past to be included in the political process, much like many other people and civil rights groups in many other states and throughout the south. It was the grassroots people, the everyday people, who contributed to breaking the back of segregation and political disenfranchisement in S.C. as well as other parts of our country. South Carolinians of African descent endured pain, rejection, hardship, harrassment, lost of property, lost of limb and life (and that is still putting it mildly), as well as extensive ostracism in order to be able to participate in the political process, as well as to be considered human beings.

    Myself and my family contributed locally in a small part to that struggle, and here comes a Johnny-come-lately, who has gotten a chance to give back, paticipate, and what does she do? She disrepects one our “first”. I cannot believe it. Get it together Nikki.

    The sad part is this woman makes Joe Wilson R SC02 seem like a “sane” person. Wilson’s son Alan is now the Attorney General for South Carolina, the state legislature is working on a nullification law so they can ignore federal laws they don’t like, they are looking at making their own money either gold or silver coins or paper currency. If there is a nutty idea floating around the state is looking at implementing it. Heck they want to surpass Arizona’s paper please law by making it so if the police do not stop and check the papers and arrest suspected illegal aliens then the citizen that reported them can sue the officer or elected official like the sheriffs of state police officers that fail to do their jobs.

    Their is no shortage of stupidity here in the south……..
