Bush gave Kerry an opening wide enough to drive a platoon of Humvees through and he didn't take it.
When the last Missouri guest asked Bush if he would name three instances in which he felt he made a mistake in judgment and why, his response made it perfectly clear that he regretted nothing . . . apologized for nothing . . . would have done nothing differently except for "several appointments" of people whose names he would not divulge. What that translated to was: "I do not belive I've made any mistakes and the only mistakes I made was in giving responsibility to people who failed me." Once again, he showed an arrogant, oblivious nature and when asked to define failure, diverted it to unnamed appointees who he could blame in anonymity.
I couldn't wait for Kerry to rise and say something like, "What you heard this President say . . . or rather NOT say . . . is that he has nothing to apologize for and that he believes that in his entire term in office he has done nothing he regrets. How many of us can say that? How many of us would agree with him?" He could have RUN with that one and it would have made a smashing ending. Yet he did not. Why?
What a terrible missed opportunity.
