South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has expressed interest in a GOP run for the White House in 2016.

While Haley, the state’s first female and minority chief executive, doesn't immediately appear to be in the top tier of potential Republican candidates for 2016, she has garnered interest from liberal political commentators and Twitter users.

Here’s what liberal pundits are saying about Haley:

"Dennis S," in a recent PoliticusUSA.com editorial: "… Then there’s Haley’s arrogant disdain of human life in refusing to expand Medicaid to a certain group of low-wage earners. A move that is not only heartless, but will kill people. A Harvard study estimates as many as 1,300 annually in South Carolina alone. What kind of governor doesn’t care about killing people?

"We should throw her 'hatred' of environmental regulations into the mix," Dennis S continued. "Regulations that minimize and control chemical releases that kill who knows how many of her fellow citizens … This is not only a worthless, unfeeling governor; this is a worthless, unfeeling human being. And yet she commands comfortable double-digit leads in virtually every legitimate poll over her holdover opponent from her last gubernatorial run, State Senator Vincent Sheheen."

Jamie Harrison, chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, in Fitnews.com, referred to Haley's task force as a "perfect example of the all-too-typical Republican Flip Flop in South Carolina."

"For the past few years, South Carolina has been ranked in the top five of states as it relates to women killed by men," Harrison said in the story. "Governor Haley and her administration have failed to lead us in an effort to address this very important issue."

Harrison said Haley has taken money away from domestic violence prevention efforts — referring to her 2012 veto of $453,680 earmarked for the state’s 23 rape and domestic violence crisis centers.
