132. Bush was NOT the incumbent in 2k. He was in '04. He had means, motive and opportunity.

Yowza,

You are missing the overall:

1) Clinton was the incumbent. Bush did not have the means nor the opportunity.

2) Bush knew that he could not steal NY from Gore even if he wanted to. He had no motive.

3) Gore won the official popular vote in 2000 by 540,000; he would have won by 3 million if the 5.4 million uncounted votes been counted.

4) Bush needed a "mandate" in 2004. He had a motive.

5) He could not afford to steal a close election and lose the popular vote again. He was the incumbent. He had the means.

6) So the ILLEGITIMATE INCUMBENT WHO STOLE THE 2000 ELECTION HAD TO REDUCE KERRY'S MARGIN IN NY. He had the opportunity.

7) Election fraud reduced Kerry's NY margin by over 700,000 votes.

8) Since Bush had a stolen election popular vote mandate of just 3.0 million, NY accounted for one quarter of his "margin".

And now you've heard the rest of the story.
