DENVER — Just got back from a media breakfast with Bob Barr, who was asked about several issues, including immigration. “My main concern, and the immediate concern I would have as president, is securing the borders,” he said. However, Barr discounted the idea of a border fence as ineffective and expensive.
Barr was asked why he hadn’t signed the “Libertarians for Justice” pledge, calling for a new investigation into 9/11 — a “Truther” project endorsed by 11 of the 14 LP presidential candidates.
“I’m not interested in conspiratorial theories, I’m interested in moving the country forward,” Barr said. “Some candidates will sign whatever’s put in front of them, if they think it will get them votes. I don’t operate that way.”
