Bush Admits Mistakes, Regrets Mission Accomplished Banner

Perhaps determined to work on his legacy before he leaves office, President Bush has identified episodes from the last eight years he has come to regret. They include:

  • Announcing that he wanted Osama bin Laden "dead or alive" right after Sept. 11.
  • Declaring "bring 'em on" when discussing Iraqi insurgents in 2003.
  • Speaking in front of a "Mission Accomplished" banner on May 1, 2003, to declare major combat operations were complete.

Bush credits his wife for opening his mind to the importance of being careful with his words as President.

If you're not a fan of Bush, will you be more willing to forgive and forget once he leaves office, or must Americans hold a grudge if they don't want history to repeat itself? Is self-reflection from Bush enough, or should there be some other sort of accountability?
