WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 /U.S. Newswire/ -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on remarks by President Bush in an interview with regional newspapers yesterday in which he said he regretted saying "bring 'em on" in reference to insurgents in Iraq who wanted to attack our troops:
"The President has finally acknowledged that his taunting the Iraqi insurgents by saying 'bring 'em on' has had unintended consequences, likely increasing the dangers faced by our troops in Iraq. Although unintended, the consequences of such remarks were all too predictable.
"It was also predictable that creating a chaotic security situation in Iraq would make the country what it was not before the war -- a 'magnet for terrorists,' a result recently confirmed by the National Intelligence Council.
"More than two years ago, senior military experts such as General Eric Shinseki warned against sending too small a force to Iraq, in part because they knew that any security vacuum created by the fall of Saddam Hussein would be filled by elements united only by the desire to kill Americans. One of the many mistakes of the Iraq war is that the President did not have a plan for preventing Iraq from becoming a hotbed for terrorists. We will be paying the price of that mistake for years to come.
"Having admitted the error of his words, the President must admit the error of his ways."
Pelosi demanded this of *Crinton as well - no? I don't recall...

Oh, no! This quagmire is Bush's fault!
I don't recall...
That's what Hillery! said too.
I don't recall...
That's what Hillery! said too.
What is that necklace???
prolly her husbands nuts.
Yeah, right. Had Bush not made the statement, the "insurgents" would never have thought of making things difficult for us.
This photo of Pelosi should have been a profile, so we could better see her two facedness. But, alas....as it so often is, we only see the one face. Not the other. We know it's there though. :-)
This reaction is the reason that GWB didn't say something like this before the election. What the Libs don't understand is that the fact that GWB now admits a "mistake" means that he now considers them and their response irrelevant!
Bush was an absolute IDIOT for saying he regretted his previous blunt language. He pissed off me (the real conservatives) and showed weakness to his enemies (libs and terrorists). He keeps this up and I'm sending him a pair of NEUTICLES!!!!
I'm glad this dried up shrew is the voice of the Democrat House. Her gravitas on military matters is, well, not something America is looking for.
Grrrrr, this woman makes me crazy.
Dear Mrs. Pelosi:
The President could not admit he regretted saying "Bring em on" before the election , because he knew that some Dipwad like you would make a big deal out of it.
As for mending his ways other than allowing Mexicans to walk across the vorder any time they like his ways dont need mending. But yours do. Stop the constant haranguing and get with the program to better America.
If you cant do that the second best thing is to STFU.
And please no more plastic surgery, from looking at your picture, your skin is so tight you cant get your mouth shut.
What is this IDIOT doing being the head of a major American political party? Her idiotic "Gotcha!" crap is precisely what is wrong with democrats in general--their inability to put country in front of party. We all may cringe when the Republicans extend the hand to the other side, but the effort is being made. Why don't the Republicans see that each time they do so, they get slapped in response? Pelosi is a despicable, nauseating, know-nothing filthy harridan who should be behind the lunch counter at a very small California high school (and not trusted to count the drawers at the end of the day) instead of in a position requiring statesmanship.
This should have run under a "caption this photo" banner.
The more Pelosi is on television the better.
More gotcha. They want the President to admit he's been wrong about the last four years - and the next four.
LOL, really. But she dyed them!
Voted NO on allowing school prayer during the War on Terror. (Nov 2001)
Legalize medical marijuana. (Jul 2001)
by the Christian Coalition: an anti-family voting record. (Dec 2003)
Voted NO on reporting illegal aliens who receive hospital treatment. (May 2004)
Voted NO on approving removal of Saddam & valiant service of US troops. (Mar 2004)
Voted NO on authorizing military force in Iraq. (Oct 2002)
she has much to attain for. she should STFU!
Well at least "W" has gotten rid of all them terrorists! Nothing left but insurgents now...lol
LOL...He should declare victory.
Bush should have never expressed any regret for the remarks. If the president really has that kind of influence over their emotions, and actions, then I'm all for his looking into the camera with the blunt, "Drop Dead."
To most ordinary folks, the original remarks likely showed confidence and determination. Only among the hand-wringing elite does such blunt language cause trouble. Bush's rough image has been the key to his elections all along. Recall how the milquetoast nature of the father hurt him so badly if you want proof. Nobody wants that mealy-mouth stuff except for a tiny minority. I can tell you that I am not all that worried about the occasional boisterous remark. It would do the country good if people spoke more frankly.
This was, of course, a story all but designed to lead the Dems, as we have seen time and time again. No suprises here, folks. Pelosi is creepy-looking, though, for what it's worth.
This loathesome witch wouldn't be satisfied if he wore sack cloth and ashes, so I hope he's finished with the groveling show for Ba-wahh. They aren't going to like him any more for it and he only appears weak.
And if they get that, they'll use it to start banging the impeachment drum.
Darn author of that picture....obviously a lib/dem.
That's why the Dems were so upset with it.
As I predicted here.
Those "love beads" that get a lot of use in San Fran
Why doesn't this bigmouth admit the errors of HER ways. What a jerk.
Pelosi fashion statement: colored golf balls around the neck. Maybe she is so idiotic because she got bonked with a few of them.
I agree. It was foolish of President Bush. And what good does he think he accomplished? It irritates the people who voted for him and gives ammunition to the liberals who condemn him at every turn.
I agree. Bush should have stood his ground and said not one thing. He was ahead in the game, now this bloodsuckers will want more and more out of him.
Media and the Demorats team tagging again.
First, the media lies about what the President said, then the Demorats comment on it.
Is it really that blatant, or is it just me?
Man they can`t get Britney Spears pants to stretch as tight as the skin on her face.And then that grimace.
It's a shame that she ever made it to the egg.
Wouldn't you hate to be her.
Totaly irrelevant. Totaly on the defensive and laughed at for attempting weak and ineffectual attacks.
What a great time for a woman to lead. Down the tubes goes the party and a woman is unable to stop the slide. The good ol boys will never let a woman control again.
Heard that. He should have stood his ground.
I CALL ON BUSH TO APOLOGIZE TO THE AMURRICKIN PIPPLE. THE PRESIDENTS FAILED POLICY ON IRAQ HAS LED TO THE DEATHS OF OVER A THOUSAND OF OUR FINEST YOUNG MEN AND WYMYN AND MADE THE BAD PEOPLE REALLY ANGRY AT US. I HAVE A PLAN... I HAVE A PLAN... I... HAVE... A... PLAN... W IS FOR WRONG.
