The first came from an interview Monday morning with NBC's "Today" show. Bush was asked whether the war on terrorism can be won.
"I don't think you can win it," Bush responded. "But I think you can create conditions so that those who use terror as a tool are less acceptable in parts of the world. Let's put it that way."
The Kerry-Edwards campaign said Bush flip-flopped on the issue, and released previous comments from the president saying that the war on terror could indeed be won.
In an interview published in this week's editions of Time magazine, Bush acknowledged that there was at least one mistake made during the invasion of Iraq.
"Had we had to do it over again, we would look at the consequences of catastrophic success -- being so successful, so fast, that an enemy that should have surrendered or been done in, escaped and lived to fight another day," Bush told the magazine.
Edwards criticized Bush's comments.
"After months of saying he'd done everything right on Iraq and foreign policy, the president acknowledged just the other day that he miscalculated the way in which he waged the war in Iraq," Edwards said. "He believes that he may have won the war too quickly -- and that was a miscalculation."

Yeah, I would have one if I liked the distruction of America at the hands of Bush Jr (i.e. Kerry).
Both suck, and the Democrats have effectivly fooled America into thinking that Kerry is a real person, rather than a super rich professional politician.
That's akin to a career criminal in this country, yet if it happens in Washington, it's normally lawded as a positive thing.
Both suck as almost anyone with a brain knows it.
Follow this logic, because reason is denied here:
- A good portion of America thinks we are voting for the lesser of two evils rather than someone who represents us (last time I checked, it was 45% of Kerry's supporters)
- There are other viable candidates
- Yet your vote wouldn't count if you voted third party.
People, the parties are in power in this country, from State to the President. The sooner you come to grips with this, the sooner you can stop buying the # they shovel at you.
