The Dem attack dogs will have him pegged as an Uncle Tom and pseudo-black of the Clarence Thomas ilk, before he ever sets foot in the Senate chamber. There is no racist quite like a sanctimonious Democrat.

IF she does pick Tim Scott, I will, happily, eat crow pie for thinking she would go with a less Conservative appointee.

Me and many other South Carolina conservatives have been positively harassing Nikki to pick a TEA Party rep —at first she wanted RINO hack McMasters just to hold the seat for HER when she ends her final Gov term but the gambit was too transparent so now she pretty much HAS to pick a TEA Party rep and Tim Scott leads the conservative field...

...also if she picks Scott she knows we will owe her and thus give her a serious look if she wants to be Prez in 2016...the main reason she caved IMO.

I think I will hold my congrats until Gov. Haley makes her announcement. There have been a couple of reports from “sources” saying it’s going to be different people. I would like my info directly from the Gov. Still if it is Congressman Scott it is an excellent choice! (Couldn’t resist) LOL

Sounds good...but in light of Friday’s events, what’s his stance on the 2nd Amendment?
