Bob Barr Runningmate Did Not Say “Nuke Iranian Cockroaches”

"America should just let Israel alone, defend itself, and go nuke the heck out of those Iranian cockroaches. Blow ‘em all up... just nuke the place for a thousand years."

This is what land developer Treg Loyden reportedly heard Libertarian US Presidential candidate Bob Barr's running mate, Wayne Root, say while on the campaign trail.

Austin Cassidy of The Independent Political Report spoke with Root and was told "NOT accurate at all."

"So ridiculous. I'm busy Thomas traveling the nation and winning over non-Libertarians, Republicans, Reagan Democrats, independents to our message. "6 percent poll numbers nationwide (translating to 6 to 7 million voters) certainly prove the value of our message.

"And by the way I've done dozen upon dozen of radio interviews (certainly more than any LP VP ever)...my responses on Iraq and EVERY issue have been well received by the American public. I take live calls across USA from total strangers...and to date EVERY single caller has been won over by my appearances. We're winning lots of fans!"


Root, who made his millions in the sports handicapping business selling picks, recently settled a "patent" matter with a number of the industry's most highly regarded websites including VegasInsider.com, a good friend of the Gambling911.com website.

While none of the parties were permitted to disclose details of the settlement agreement, suffice it to say they won't exactly be campaigning for Mr. Root or Bob Barr.

The one lone hold out has been Covers.com, another friend of Gambling911.com. That company's CEO Paul Lavers indicated that Covers has no intention of settling any time soon.
