In 2005, Fitty told GQ he looked up to George W. Bush, and would vote for him were it not for his prior felony conviction. "I wanna meet George Bush, just shake his hand and tell him how much of me I see in him," he said. Two years later, though, the "In Da Club" rapper had changed his tune. "George Bush has a talent: He has less compassion than the average human," he explained to New York Magazine. "By all means, I don't aspire to be like George Bush."
