Barbour is Out

My decision-making process for 2008 just got a little easier. Haley Barbour took himself out of the running for President in 2008 yesterday. I was considering supporting Barbour, possibly over George Allen. Barbour is an effective Governor and an extraordinary spokesman for conservatism. In fact, I consider Barbour to be the last competent Republican talking head.

As RNC Chairman in 1994, Barbour’s folksy style and common sense rhetoric contributed to the GOP landslide. Barbour also has a way showing America what fools the mainstream media are. His response to a reporter’s question about a possible Vice Presidential run: “Why would a Republican pick a running mate from Mississippi?” Heh.

As far as 2008 is concerned, I’m currently leaning toward Allen but haven’t made up my mind. I’ll keep you posted.
