Bush grows reflective in Missouri speech
MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. (AP) -- President Bush says he doesn't regret the decisions he's made in office and will leave his job possessing the same set of values as when he began.
Bush appeared to grow nostalgic Friday as he held a nearly hour-long question-and-answer session with employees at World Wide Technology in suburban St. Louis.
Bush toured the company and gave a speech on the economy afterward. He says economic growth isn't as strong as most Americans want, but will likely improve soon.
During the long Q-and-A, Bush grew reflective on his last seven-plus years in office. He says he never expected to oversee two wars or respond to a terrorist attack.
He says the country's most important mission is to spread democracy abroad.
