    Four reasons I am crossing party lines to vote this time are ...

    1. Afganastain - We should have finished the job there before moving on to Iraq. Strike one against Bush aka Republician.

    2. Iraq - We should have never started in Iraq, under the circumstances we did - then when it became obvious it was time to get out - we didn't. Strike two against Bush aka Republican.

    3. Katrina - As we sat and watched the city of New Orleans be ignored (as it was) by federal government for days, and days, and days it was like watching the 9/11 attack on New York by terrorists all over again. Only this time it was our President, and his administration that was attacking our own people by ignorning them. Strike three to strike one zillion against Bush aka Republican.

    4. Voting for McCain is a minimum of four more years of Bush's Republician Bull $hit!

    McCain was once, many moons ago, a maverick in the GOP. He could reach across the isle and make nonpartisan decisions. Then he found that in order to gain the support of the far right he would have to become a bush lapdog. The GOP nomination was so important to him that he buried his conscious and became an political demagogue.

    The moderate McCain that I once admired is dead. Now McBush is looking to extend 8 years of a twisted administration.

    McCain is not dead. McCain is hiding. He's pandering to the right to get support, and it's painfully obvious. Once elected, he'll do what he wants, not what Bush wants.

    We definitely do need to refocus of Afghanistan, because we have finally won in Iraq. I'm glad we are in Iraq because now, for the next 100 years, we have huge airbases we can hammer the Russians (the real enemy that never really went away) with.

    We watched New Orleans get the scrubbing out that city BADLY needed for a LONG time. The only ones who watched were the idiot state and local officials, like the mayor leaving 1200 buses parked and eventually flooded out.

    McCain has been opposed to Bush on almost all domestic fronts since he's been there. He's no Bush supporter, never has been.

    An independent thinker. Nicely done.

    side note: It's hilarious to watch posters who probably defended Bush for eight years, whine that McCain isn't going to be another Bush.

    It's hilarious to watch people who have no clue what they're talking about make illogical and unsound assumptions about other posters.

    I hate Bush. I never voted for, and I never supported him. Thanks.

    I'm the one crossing the party lines this year. I'm registered Independent, and John McCain will be the first Republican I vote for.

    Sucker--you bit on all that Katrina BS. I notice they are really working that card at the convention. It's called thinly veiled racism.

    LOL

    Even the dude you're voting for said Bush's handling of Katrina was a disaster.
