    GOP frets Barr could play spoiler in prez race - Yahoo! News

    Bob Barr could be the 2004 Ralph Nader. Now the story has changed. The GOP was running adds and bugling Ralph Nader in 2004. Now they will be doing the same thing the Dems did in 2004. They will try to keep Barr off of state ballots.

    HOW THE WORLD TURNS!

    Obama is tied right now in Georgia with Barr in the race.

    If the GOP lose Georgia, they simply will not win.

    I don't' think the GOP will win this race. I think hussein is our next President, and the republicans are going to learn the hard way that moving away from their conservative base and pushing angry old, RINO shit heads like mclame at us guarantees they won't win ANY more elections. The good thing is, this should really energize third party voters. We really do need to bust up this strangle hold the dems and the repubs have had on the elections. They've had it for far too long. Now there's too many people out there that don't feel represented by either, and it's time they get someone elected that does.

    It would appear to me that the voter turn out in the urban areas around Atlanta and the likes would hand Georgia to Obama but we will see. gw has nearly destroyed the GOP.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    But dems, what happens if Nader gets involved?

    I see Nader and Barr cancelling each other out and leaving it close again between Obama and McCain.

    I think Dems will vote against Obama, and push McCain in.

    Barr is polling as high as 6% in Georgia and could tip the state to the Democrats unless McKinney makes the ballot there and eats into Obama's vote which I find doubtful. Nation wide Nader is out polling Barr so it will only be important on a state by state basis.
