But high-ranking in unemployment, under-funded schools and ignorant voters.
So what does Gov. Nikki Haley propose we do to improve the reputation of South Carolina? Simple - just lie. (Well, it's worked for her.)
Yesterday, Haley issued orders that all state government offices answer their phones by saying "It's a great day in South Carolina! How may I help you?" (All that's missing is, "would you like fries with that?")
Haley told The State,"I'm selling South Carolina as this great, new, positive state everybody needs to look at."
Well, South Carolina Forward Progress made the video below that reminds us of just how everyone is looking at us to begin with. And how it was garbage from the state's GOP that got us that type of reputation.
What's really ignorant about this is the type of phone calls state offices typically get. I feel sorry for staff who, after issuing their scripted message, have to listen to "where is the local unemployment office?" or "why is my Medicaid coverage being denied?" I wouldn't want to be in their shoes.
