Barbour Presidential Plans?

By: Associated Press

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour says he would be "very surprised" if he ended up running for president.
For that matter, the Republican Barbour says his wife would be even more surprised if he were to make a White House bid in 2012.
A former national chairman of the Republican Party, Barbour has been mentioned as a potential GOP candidate for president.
He is in his second term as governor and became the head of the Republican Governors Association after South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford stepped down following his admission of an extramarital affair.
Barbour says Republicans should focus on next year's congressional elections rather than the next presidential race.
Barbour appeared Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation."

    This country does not need another 'G W Bush' or perhaps WORSE, at the White House anyway. He's already 'Jim Crow' as GOV of MS, could you imagine what Mr Haley would be like if he were to take over the White House? Please!

    How Can Barbour expect to run a country, when he can't even run this state effectively?
