Posted on 09/07/2018 3:15:49 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
When Nikki Haleys name was floated as one of the people most likely to have written the NY Times op-ed my immediate reaction was I dont think so. To me, doing something like this would go against Haleys entire brand which is to be bold and call people out when they are wrong, whether thats Russia or Iran or some sleazy author hawking a book. It was just hard for me to imagine her resorting to an anonymous attack.
Today, Haley has written a piece for the Washington Post calling out the author of the anonymous op-ed. Haley has a gift for taking things that seem like common sense and spelling them out, point-by-point, in plain language. And thats what she does here. She doesnt shout or raise her voice (metaphorically speaking) she just hammers away, explaining why what the author of the op-ed did is not the American way.
What this anonymous author is doing is very dangerous. He or she claims to be putting the country first, and that is the right goal. Everyone in government owes a greater loyalty to our country and our Constitution than to any individual officeholder. But a central part of our democracy requires that those who work directly for the president not secretly try to undermine him or his policies. What the author is describing is an extra-constitutional method of addressing policy disputes within the administration. Thats wrong on a fundamental level.

But how would they undermine the President if they didn’t keep their position?
Isn’t like that asking car jackers to give up driving?
It’s stupid that anyone in the admin is giving this any attention. Where is the messaging? It should be: 90% chance this is pure b.s. concocted by the failing New York Times, but on the off chance there is a douche like this who somehow fell through the cracks, quit now and show your face!
Anyone very negative send them to Mecca on a fact finding mission
I think the more light shined on it the better.
Nikki Haley tried to let Trump believe that she had nothing to do with the op-ed.
She caved on the Confederate Flag issue.
That makes her guilty and she’s probably posting at 8Chan too.
Bill Kristol is a big fan of Nikki Haley. Just sayin...
Why should Republicans care anything about the confederate flag. If the Democrats are now ashamed of their history of supporting and fighting for slavery, and want the flag gone, so be it. Don’t hate Haley for this.
She's a squish, she caved on the issue.
Don't blame the people who call her on it, it was she who did the deed.
Nikki Nimrata undermines the President openly. Be like her.
I can’t help but remember in Dante’s Inferno the very worst part of the lowest level of Hell, the zone of Judas, is reserved for those who betray their benefactor.
Catch the author, send their ass to Gitmo, water board them for more information and then put a bullet in his traitorous head. Do it the night before the election and then make a statement that sedition will no longer be tolerated.
Add to the party an MS13 leader, the leader of Antifa, the leader of the SPLC and the leader of the ACLU.
That's one of my many stories - will be interesting if we ever find out the truth....
It is Haley according to Caputo..
