    He Could Be McCain’s Worst Nightmare

    Bob Barr Considers Run For White House

    Duane Lester

    In 2000, Ralph Nader took just enough votes from Al Gore in New Hampshire to give the state’s four electoral votes to George Bush, who won the election by three. And in Florida, Nader took 97,488 votes away from Gore. Bush won Florida by only 537 votes. Nader cost Gore the 2000 election.

    It is also argued that Ross Perot was the reason George Bush lost his bid for re-election to Bill Clinton. Perot ran as a third party candidate in 1992, and was the most successful third party candidate in history.

    In 2008, Bob Barr may be the Nader or Perot for John McCain. But who is he?

    Bob Barr is a former Republican turned life member of the Libertarian party. He was a part of the Republican Revolution with Newt Gingrich, representing the 7th District of Georgia in the U. S. House of Representatives from 1995 to 2003.

    And he’s probably going to run for president as a Libertarian.

    Bob Barr has a serious conservative history. The American Conservative Union gives him a lifetime conservative rating of 98. He was the first to introduce “a resolution directing Judiciary Committee to inquire into impeachment proceedings — months before the Lewinsky scandal came to light. Chief among the concerns Barr cited at the time was apparent obstruction of Justice Department investigations into Clinton campaign fund raising from foreign sources, chiefly China.”

    He also wrote and sponsored the Defense of Marriage Act. This law was passed in 1996, and states that only marriages between an man and a woman will be federally recognized, and does not require states to recognize same-sex marriages from other states.

    Barr is also a supporter and active member of the National Rifle Association. He also supports the Fair Tax.
