Republicans worry Bob Barr will spoil McCain’s chances.
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 08:08 AM by liberal N proud
He’s Bob Barr, and he’s running for president


Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr rankles some former GOP colleagues with statements such as this: “What George W. Bush has done to the fabric of our constitutional government, to separation of powers, to a government of limited powers is absolutely unforgivable.”
The Libertarian Party candidate thinks the GOP, which he once served with gusto, has run off the rails. Some Republicans worry their quirky former colleague will spoil McCain’s chances.

WASHINGTON -- When Bob Barr called a news conference last month to discuss his idea of the perfect Supreme Court justice, a phone booth could have accommodated the reporters who showed up.

Nonetheless, the Libertarian Party's candidate for president was no-nonsense: Cuff links fastened, mustache trimmed, he ripped into John McCain's interpretation of the Constitution, words like "penumbra," as in "outside the penumbra of Sen. McCain's misunderstanding," rolling off his famously tart tongue.


Then he threw it open to questions from members of the Fourth Estate, whose average age looked to be about 19.

"Do you think the country is ready for a president with a mustache?"

3. They're blaming Barr because they can't blame Bush! Same policies, same horseshit.
Maybe McCain needs to name someone with a battery powered heart as his veep soon.

I know!

Let Cheney pick the vice president, like Bush did!!

LoL
