News conference yesterday with Blair
QUESTION: Mr. President, you spoke about missteps and mistakes in Iraq."certain parts of the world"....."misinterpreted."
Could I ask both of you which missteps and mistakes of your own you most regret?
BUSH: Sounds like kind of a familiar refrain here.
Saying, "Bring it on"; kind of tough talk, you know, that sent the wrong signal to people. I learned some lessons about expressing myself maybe in a little more sophisticated manner, you know. "Wanted, dead or alive"; that kind of talk. I think in certain parts of the world it was misinterpreted. And so I learned from that.
