I want to create a Windows 2008 GPO to push printers to a select group of workstations in the same OU, leaving some pc's alone and pushing the printer to others.
Can I do that?

Just create multiple security group and add required computers in respective security groups
Note that all computers must be in same ou \ sub ou as applied GPO, otherwise GPO will fail

Then create separate GPOs for each group depending upon printers requirements and then apply all GPOs to same OU
In GPMC for each GPO select scope tab, navigate to security filtering and remove authenticated users and add required security group

Now GPO will apply to selected computers only even all are residing in same OU \ underneath OU

Also deploy printers with user configuration\preferences in GPO (shared printer) and once printer deployed thru preference, go to its properties in GP preferences and navigate to common tab and select "Run in security context of logged on user"

Also in same GPO enable loop back processing in replace mode
you can find that under computer config\administrative templates\system\group policy

This will ensure that printers will be deployed on those computers for every user
