ACKSON, Miss. – Republican Gov. Haley Barbour bowed out of presidential contention Monday with a surprise announcement just as the 2012 campaign was getting under way in earnest, 18 months before Election Day. The Mississippi governor said he lacked the necessary "absolute fire in the belly" to run
That could be good or bad. Good that the more well known retreads will be dividing up their votes and the darkhorse types have less votes dividing them up. Bad in the fact that Barbour is a very competent governor who can credibly rip the poor mismanagement of the current idiot-in-chief.
I won't be making any decision until at least after Mackinac Conference, but as of now, I'm looking more and more at Daniels, Johnson, and Pawlenty. Don't expect me to jump on the Trump bandwagon either. If I liked "celebrity politics", I'd support the current idiot there.
