Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina typically minces no words, but especially so when it comes to President Obama's National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) trying to force Boeing Aircraft Co. to drop its plans to create 1,000 new jobs in her state building the new 787 Dreamliner commercial jet.
Here's just a sample from her interview earlier this week on Fox & Friends:
"This is nothing more than bullying by the labor unions. This is President Obama and Harry Reid carrying [the unions’] bag, carrying their water, and our companies are hurting because of it," Haley said.
"This is a terrible thing for South Carolina. It’s a terrible thing for our country. And I will tell you: While this happened in South Carolina, I won’t let it happen to any other governor in any other state," she said.
The fundamental issue, according to the South Carolina chief executive, is who decides where businesses create jobs, the businesses themselves or Washington bureaucrats:
"We have to be able to allow our companies to create jobs wherever they want to – that’s a great thing – and we are very grateful for Boeing in South Carolina."
Haley came out of nowhere to be elected to South Carolina's top job, with the biggest boost to her candidacy coming from an aggressive endorsement from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
