The NYT’s Paul Krugman was appalled in 2004 when George W. Bush predicted an election win:

There was actually a kind of revealing moment recently—Bush gave an interview, was more or less dragooned into an interview on Meet The Press and the interviewer said: “Well, what if you lose the election?” And he said: “I’m not going to lose the election.”

And the interviewer said: “But what if you do lose?” He said: “I’m not going lose the election.” The possibility that they just would not regard it as a legitimate thing if someone else were to take power.

Oh, my. Paranoid Paul will be alarmed by Bush’s latest electoral outburst:

President Bush is predicting victory for Republicans in November congressional elections based on a record of promoting freedom and opportunity at home and abroad.

But it’s not legitimate!
