Salon Magazine: Barbour aspires to run against Obama, lies about history

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A national magazine printed an article last week suggesting Mississippi's governor may run for president in 2012 and is lying about the state's past.

Salon Magazine printed an article on Sept. 2 calling Haley Barbour "the 62-year-old Mississippi governor who aspires to run as the Republican nominee against the nation's first black president."

The article goes on to contest Barbour's statements about desegregation and his own past, saying his words are "utter nonsense."
