In a surprise announcement today Haley Barbour said he will not seek the Presidential nomination in 2012.  His full statement-

“This has been a difficult, personal decision, and I am very grateful to my family for their total support of my going forward, had that been what I decided,” Barbour (pictured), a Republican, said in a statement.

“A candidate for president today is embracing a 10-year commitment to an all-consuming effort, to the virtual exclusion of all else,” the statement continued. “His (or her) supporters expect and deserve no less than absolute fire in the belly from their candidate. I cannot offer that with certainty, and total certainty is required.”

    • pilgrim- I made sure that the post was neutral. I never indicated support or non-support, just the announcement. Since you posted, I have some problems with Barbour that go beyond the food police thing. Since he is not running, any problems I saw with his candidacy are now moot, thankfully.
