Egads!

Said “little girl” should consequently curl up in a fetal position and consider eating a bullet.

Oh, Good Grief. That “reporter” should put on her big girl panties and deal with it. Idiot.

Well, at least she didn’t say: Bless her little heart.

Sounds like a Southernism to me. “Young lass” would be an equivalent. To my aunt in Mississippi, “honey chile” applied to both genders.

Nikki Haley is Asian so if the reporterette in question is white or black then it’s RACISM.

The commentors at SF.com were a bit non-plussed until one of them piped up that Nikki was a REPUBLICAN; then they tuned up.

I saw Gov. Haley on Cavuto’s show Wednesday.

She is brilliant and well spoken. I haven’t been as impressed by a politician in a long time.

Next time she should say something less controversial like “I’m gonna take you out.”

Why did it cost the taxpayers so much for the European Trip?

Because it costs a lot of money to go to Europe.

The governor's down 78-22. She could use some freeping.

"Do you agree with Nikki Haley?" Post & Courier Poll

She did WHAT? More importantly what did the governor have for lunch that day? Maybe the little girl at the Post and Courier can do a special exposé on it.

Someone needs to take the "little girl" and her Editor over to see the mercedies palnt, bmw, hundyi etc. etc along interstate 30 (20?) these are jobs Europeans won't do and American works will do - take a look at the tech story of the MClass etc. etc. at this link - all good reasons to ask EU companies to build near the Boeing plant

It IS Southernese....I call everything and everybody “little”....when talking about a friend...”I love that little girl...or I love that little boy”...and they may be 100+ years old. This is just another silly reaction from an idiot.

The SC delegation was 27 persons plus the Governor and her husband.

Charleston to Paris is about $1000. You need rooms for 29 people in Paris at the time of the aerospace's largest event and a massive draw for the public as well: the Paris Airshow. Nearly 400,000 attended in 2009. Hotel rooms will be at a premium. You need exhibit and meeting space. More cost.

So it's not going to come cheap and it's a six day event.

After Paris they went to Munich.

Haley got major SC employer BMW, HQ in Munich, to help cover many of the ground transportation costs and each of the delegation contributed to defray the costs. She and her husband paid out of pocket for his expenses.

All told the cost to taxpayers was about $4,400 per person. That sounds reasonable to me.

The governor shouldn't have called the reporter a "little girl".

"Communist beyatch" is much more accurate.

Just a Southern insult...anytime somebody says “God bless” or “bless his heart,” especially coupled with a diminutive (that boy, that little girl) you know it’s bad.

This will probably raise Hale’s standing in the eyes of most of SC! The Pest and Courier is woefully afflicted by liberalism.

The Governor actually was in Europe because she was trying to attract European business to SC, and I think she will have some success in doing this. They’ve gotten a lot of new businesses into the state.

But the journalism major twit probably doesn’t realize what makes an economy work. Oh well, maybe she’ll get laid off soon.

Thanks....I now agree the journalist was way overboard and just trying to look for anything to slam the governor on. It certainly pales in comparison to Moochelle’s trips.
