Rep Tim Scott's Badge of Honor: NAACP doesn't like his politics

As far as I'm concerned, that can only mean, he must be doing something right.

Scott who will be replacing Jim DeMint doesn;t seem to agree with the NAACP's view of Government.

According to Hilary Shelton, senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the NAACP:
...“Mr. Scott certainly comes from a modest background, experience, and so forth, and should be sensitive to those issues,” he said, referring to Scott’s impoverished single-parent upbringing in Charleston, SC. 
“Unfortunately, his voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives raises major concerns,” Shelton said. 
[...] 
Scott, Shelton said, would likely work against that agenda, favoring instead the “small government” posture of Ronald Reagan and that president’s Secretary of Education, William Bennett. 
“Small government usually means, as it’s being described these days, the elimination of the role of government and support for initiatives and programs that are crucial for the African-American community,” Shelton said.

Hey Tim...you don't happen to have a twin that thinks like you do that you could send up here to Massachusetts do you?

Tim Scott is a great choice by Governor Haley to replace Jim DeMint in the Senate.

Scott, Haley, DeMint - my oh my, South Carolina is loaded with strong, charismatic and articulate conservative leaders.

Too bad that the rest of the country isn't so lucky.
