Question of the Day
Black leaders to Haley: You’re a minority, too
COLUMBIA — Civil rights leaders bothered by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s stance on issues such as requiring voters to show their IDs at the polls are reminding the governor she is a minority, too.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson said at several stops around the state that Mrs. Haley wouldn’t have been able to vote before 1965, just as he couldn’t vote.
Both of Mrs. Haley’s parents were born in India, and they came to South Carolina before she was born in 1972.
Mrs. Haley dismisses the criticism from civil rights leaders, saying they see race in every issue. She says her support of voter ID laws is just a common sense measure to protect the voting process.
Boehner: State of Union speech may be ‘pathetic’
Mr. Obama is expected to outline an economic blueprint built around manufacturing, energy and education, and officials have said he’ll propose fresh ideas to try to get the wealthy to pay more in taxes.
Mr. Boehner says it sounds to him like “the same old policies” of more spending, taxes and regulations that have hurt the economy.
The Ohio Republican tells “Fox News Sunday” that if that’s what Mr. Obama is going to talk about, then “I think it’s pathetic.”
