Bob Barr, a Republican and former US congressman, announced plans today to run for president on the Libertarian Party's ticket. The move by the 59-year old Barr, could hurt John McCain's chances come November.
Barr, who played a key role in the congressional impeachment of former president Bill Clinton, said there was not "currently or anywhere on the horizon" any candidate who understood the need for fiscal conservatism and America's founding principles.
He added that if McCain fails to win the presidency, "it will be because Senator McCain did not present, and his party did not present, a vision, an agenda, a platform and a series of programs" for the American people.
Good luck to you, Mr. Barr. I hope a whole gaggle of right wingers vote for you and help to give the presidency to Barack Obama.
