Farah got Mr. Fu thinking: Since McCain fundamentally opposed President Bush on the few good things that Bush has done as President (tax cuts, Supreme Court appointments, terrorist interrogations), how could he possibly be a better President? Do we really need a Republican President that is worse than Bush? Do we really need a Republican President that the already spineless Republican Senators (with notable exceptions like Senator Sessions) will fail to oppose when needed?
Mr. Fu wonders if giving Bush a second term was better then a one term Kerry presidency with Republican majorities in the House and Senate (which would likely have strengthened in 2006 rather than weakened). Mr. Fu has grown weary of voting against Democrats. He would prefer to vote for a Republican for once in a Presidential campaign in the last fifteen years or so.
