George Bush has the lowest rating of any president in American history, he has left an economy that is in ruins, and the only regrets this man can express are his use of some expressions which he now says should never have been expressed! He now admits using the expressions, “Mission Accomplished” or getting Osama bin Laden, “Dead or Alive” were probably the incorrect thing to say at the time. “I regret saying some things I shouldn’t have said” because a president should “be careful what you say.” In his CNN interview, George Bush expressed no regrets for plunging the United States into a war over WMD that never existed nor did he mention his responsibility for the death of over 4,000 Americans. It is words, not deeds that are on this man’s mind because he really has no regrets over any of his actions.
It is interesting the president did not mention his use of words that characterized political opponents as less than good Americans or insisted if you did not approve of his actions it was evidence of support for terrorism. Two expressions are recalled by the president, but not a single apology for his mistakes. Who can forget the moment during his debate with John Kerry when he simply could not recall a mistake he made?
