137. but, WillE,
1. You've never offered any coherent rationale why Bush would have more "means or opportunity" to subvert the lever counts in 2004 than in 2000, despite repeated requests. Your thinking on this point seems to be strictly magical. How would he actually have gone about doing it? Not a rhetorical question, something that anyone who claims to care about election fraud actually ought to think about.

2. Bush knew that he could not steal NY from Kerry, either. But if you think Bush needed extra votes in 2004 to have a "mandate," surely he could have used some extra votes in 2000, when he actually lost the popular vote! Objectively, Bush had far more motive to steal NY votes in 2000 than in 2004.
