Haley Barbour: pardons criminals and runs off to a lobbying job in D.C.

Wanted? Exposed and admitted, Boss Hog conservative turned lobbyist!
There was a time when our airways and newscasts were full of comment about Haley Barbour, former Governor of Mississippi, as a prime prospect to run for the GOP nomination for president of the United States.   I will readily admit to a great deal of reticence as I contemplated any governor from Mississippi in a presidential race.  No disrespect to the State, but the state's political machine is, yet, another matter.  

My consternation about Barbour was re-enforced as Barbour charged through a period of "southern revisionism".  It takes a person who has serious mental deficiencies to go on national television and declare the following:

" ..it was his (my)  generation (in his state) which instrumental in desegregating the University of Mississippi."

"..The white Citizens Council really was not bad for the citizens of Jackson MS."
