No flip-flopper he. In one fell swoop he manages to undo any traction he had on Kerry’s war vote:
President Bush (news - web sites) said he had no regrets about donning a flight suit to give his “Mission Accomplished” speech on Iraq (news - web sites) in May 2003 and would do it all over again if he had the chance, according to excerpts from an television interview released on Sunday.
When asked by Fox News if he still would have put on a flight suit to declare major combat operations in Iraq over, Bush replied, “Absolutely.”
When Bush gave his May 1 speech fewer than 150 Americans had died in the war. Since then more than 900 have died.
