President Bush: Regrets.

November 12, 2008

President George W. Bush, when asked by CNN, apparently regrets some of the statements he made during his two terms in office.

You know, the statements like:

“I want justice. There’s an old poster out West that said: ‘Wanted, dead or alive.'”

Or,

“There are some who feel like the conditions are such that they can attack us there. My answer is, bring ’em on.”

Yeah, those statements.  Remember back when he made those statements, anyone who dared question him was labeled as “terrorist-sympathizer” or “anti-American?”

(Thank God we’ve gotten past that brand of American politics in 2008, huh?  We’ve come so far.)

Nevertheless, the interesting moment for me came when he was talking about the infamous “Mission Accomplished” banner:

“They had a sign that said ‘Mission Accomplished’,” he said.

“It was a sign aimed at the sailors on the ship, but it conveyed a broader knowledge. To some it said, well, Bush thinks the war in Iraq is over, when I didn’t think that. But nonetheless, it conveyed the wrong message.”

Yeah, Dubya.  It was the sign that conveyed the wrong message.

It couldn’t have been your speech, right?  You remember, the one that went a little something like this:

Thank you. Thank you all very much.

Admiral Kelly, Captain Card, officers and sailors of the USS Abraham Lincoln, my fellow Americans, major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed.

Sigh.  What are we going to do without him?
