Nikki Haley:

South Carolina Governor, (R) Nikki Haley called the President a bully, who has been forcing the Congress and others officials in his government on issues that are important to his administration. Her remarks came on Wednesday, amid heated exchange between Obama and Paul Ryan over the national debt crisis and his remarks on Supreme Court’s final decision on the Affordable healthcare Act.

In an interview with Fox News, Gov Nikki Haley said that, “What is amazing is what a bully President Obama has suddenly become. Here was a man that came in with ‘hope and change,’ and now he’s bullying his way… He’s bullying his way on Paul Ryan, saying that he’s not coming up with an adequate budget. Now he’s bullying the Supreme Court, saying, ‘No, they won’t reverse this (the health care law), they won’t go against us on this.’ That’s not how things work.”

Haley said that despite what Obama continues to say about the budget presented by the House Budget Committee Chairman, Paul Ryan, she thinks Wisconsin Rep showed some real backbone to tackle the pressing issue.

"He has to lead. He's shown no sort of leadership when it comes to balancing a budget. He's shown no leadership when it comes to allowing the states to do the will of the people. He continues to say no to everything," Haley said of Obama in the interview.

Haley, who recently endorsed Mitt Romney for his Presidential run, said that what ever the Governors do for their states, Obama jumps into it saying that we can't do it, after the bill has been passed. “For a bill to become law, it truly has to be the will of the people, and for a president to stop the will of the people and stop what you’re trying to do in your state is not the role of Washington” Haley said as she stopped over this week in New York City to promote her memoir. Haley insisted that all the states feel a constant overstepping and intrusion to be denied of their right and what they want to do for their people.

Haley, the Indian born Sikh converted Christian, has recently announced that she has no intentions of being a vice presidential running mate to Mitt Romney in the 2012 general elections. In an interview with New York Times, she said that the people of her state have entrusted her with a job, and it would be wrong to leave it right in the middle.
