GOP increasingly worried about Barr

Julie Bosman in the New York Times gives extended coverage to the Barr campaign and strategy:

On the ballots in 30 states so far, Mr. Barr has the chance to be a spoiler for Mr. McCain, the presumed Republican nominee, in several states, among them Alaska, Colorado and Georgia. Mr. Barr’s campaign advisers also assert he has similar potential in other mountain states, New Hampshire, Ohio and other swing states.

She also reports:

Mr. Barr’s skeleton staff has set up temporary camp in the offices of Liberty Strategies, Mr. Barr’s public relations firm. He has a half-dozen full-time employees, but Mr. Verney said there were plans to move into a 4,600-square-foot space and expand to 28 people later this summer.

    And the GOP has only itself to blame. They had three fine libertarian-leaning Republican candidates in the primaries: Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson. What did my Party do? The GOP nominated the moderate Centrist squishy guy.

    Worried about Barr? Maybe if you all fellow Republicans of mine had chosen Giuliani, Thompson or Romney you wouldn’t have been faces with this problem you have now.

    Eric – Republicans for Barr!

    BTW, I can’t give you all details, but I spoke with a prominent Republican yesterday who was highly placed in one of the GOP Presidential primary campaigns. This gentleman was libertarian-leaning, actually pretty much an outright libertarian Republican.

    He’s now leaning Barr. And I’m confident I can push him over in the coming weeks. I know there’s many more from that particularl campaign who hold similar sentiments to his.

    I was very worried about Barr’s impact until I saw today’s Rasmussen Poll from Georgia.
    McCain 53%
    Obama 43%
    Barr 1%

    I want to see another poll from Georgia to make sure its accurate but I am more optimistic about McCain’s chances than I was 2 weeks ago.

    Who are you “Another WATCHER” monitoring TPW for McSame? Jaun McAmesty, the OLDEST R nominee in history is just another creepy old OLD Bob Dole 2 LOSER! He could be senile, drolling on himself and in diapers within four years, a vote for him is INSANE!

    The flyweight, empty suit B.O. is the LEAST qualified D nominee in the 200 plus year history of the Party. You disagree? Name ONE less qualified! Some KOOKS would give the nuclear football to this novice. That’s INSANITY!

    America must look to ALL their alternatives this year. Barr, BaldWIN, McKinney, & Nader deserve a closer look in 2008!

    Eric makes a positive move. BRAVO! Lead the charge and make it known worldwide “REPUBLICANS FOR BARR”! Hope your membership reaches 40 million…

    I’m the Manhattan coordinator for the Barr campaign- we’re also going to have a 1,400 square foot office on Broadway, ten blocks away from Times Square. The opening will be July 18th.

    Eric,

    The ONLY libertarian-leaning Republican in the primary was Paul.

    Giuliani is authoritarian, for goodness sakes! And Thompson and Romney are conservative, but both are social conservatives who’d like to be able to “legislate morality”.

    Barr is the only legitimate choice for any American who loves liberty!
