Barbour is the guy who pardoned convicted murderers because they cut his grass. He is no big loss to anybody
Barbour WAS a conservative at one time. I think he has strayed a long way off of the reservation.
I’ll give the guy the benefit of the doubt—possibly he’ll return to his roots and regain some of the integrity that he was beginning to lose.
I just went to read the whole thing. It almost sounds like he could be pizzed that they showed their hand too soon, the way it’s worded. Who knows, the way Republican establishment is acting these days.
I hope Haley has felt some heat, and hope others are feeling the same.
Oregon Rep. Greg Walden is.
