Republicans use SC Governor's mansion as Motel 6

Newt Gingrich, presidential candidate, is spending the night in the South Carolina governor's mansion tomorrow night, as Governor Nikki Haley's guest.

And that's perfectly fine, if she wants guests. But can I see the books, please? Who is paying for this? And what's on the menu? Laundry service included? WiFi, continental breakfast and hot showers will be readily available, one assumes. All of that will run you a good $200 a night at a Hampton Inn... and at a nice Columbia-area bed-and-breakfast, would likely be even higher. (Meals not included.)

Perhaps that isn't a lot of dough to Marie Antoin---oops, I mean Governor Haley, but to us unemployed people out here, it sure is.

Is the governor cleaning the room herself, after the Gingriches depart? Who is? And who pays THAT person? Wait, let me guess.

And why are WE being used as a Motel 6 by Newt Gingrich? Is his campaign so bedraggled that he can't pay his own motel bills? After staying the night in Nikki's swanky digs, Newt will truck his useless ass on down to Hilton Head (and where else!?!) to "host" a movie at Coligny Theatre. Thus, staying at the Governor's Mansion is a nice little cost-cutter for his campaign. Nice work if you can get it!

I don't think I should have to pay for that, as I recently paid for a similar slumber party featuring Nikki and Michele Bachmann. As I ALSO PAID for Nikki to party in Europe and stay at the nicest hotels in France.

WE CAN NOT AFFORD this so-called "fiscal conservative"--this FAKE, who admits she intends to steal pensions from hard-working police, teachers, librarians, road-construction workers and firefighters, all so she can support her friend's presidential aspirations. HOW DID WE GET STUCK WITH THIS PERSON?

Exactly like State Senator David Thomas, Haley is opposed to "government spending"--unless the spending is on Nikki Haley. These people are abject phonies. GREEDY, self-serving phonies, at that.

The next time you hear them nattering on about "government spending"--ask to see the books. I assume most of them are just as phony as Haley, Bachmann, Gingrich and Thomas. Liars, all.

Otherwise, the Motel 6 for you tomorrow night, Newt. I don't like paying your bills, although I realize you have your (third) wife's hefty jewelry debts to pay! I can see why you are trying to save a buck, just not at MY expense.

Maybe you should start managing your money the way you self-righteously tell everyone else to?

From FITSNEWS: Ann Romney Stays At “Hotel Trikki”

Several months after her husband was reportedly denied access to S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s taxpayer-funded political hotel, former Massachusetts First Lady Ann Romney – wife of 2012 GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney – took advantage of the public accommodations.

Ann Romney spent Thursday night at the S.C. Governor’s Mansion, which Haley is using to entertain Republican presidential candidates (and now, apparently, their spouses).

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann has stayed at “Hotel Trikki” twice already, while former U.S. Speaker Newt Gingrich will avail himself of these taxpayer-funded digs next Tuesday (can’t wait to see the food tab associated with that visit).

Ann Romney is in Columbia, S.C. to help file her husband’s paperwork for South Carolina’s “First in the South” presidential primary. Her mansion sleepover came as a surprise to several Palmetto politicos, particularly in light of an alleged incident that occurred earlier this year.

Numerous sources tell FITS that Mitt Romney - who was the first GOP presidential contender to endorse Haley’s 2010 gubernatorial bid last spring – called Haley personally earlier this year and asked if he could stay at the mansion during a South Carolina visit.

“Governor Romney was told by Governor Haley that he needed to call her office and inquire as to the availability of accommodations at the mansion,” a source close to Romney’s campaign told FITS.

Ouch …

According to a source in Haley’s office, Romney actually swallowed this initial indignity and had a staff member make the call – at which point his office was told in no uncertain terms that there was “no room in the inn.”

Hmmmm …

Haley has yet to endorse a candidate in advance of the 2012 South Carolina Republican presidential primary, although the value of her endorsement has been plummeting in recent months. According to the latest Public Policy Polling survey, Haley’s approval rating is an anemic 41 percent – with 43 percent of South Carolinians disapproving of her job performance.

Most Palmetto politicos believe that Haley – who endorsed Romney in 2008 – will wind up endorsing Texas Gov. Rick Perry this time around, particularly in light of recent fundraising developments. However, if Perry stumbles … Haley could wind up throwing her support back to Romney.
