Bush Takes Responsibility for Iraq Claim

President Bush for the first time says he is ultimately responsible for a now-discredited claim about Iraq's attempts to purchase uranium from Africa that appeared in his January State of the Union address. In the wide-ranging news conference, Bush also defends his economic policy and rejects the idea of same-sex marriages. Hear NPR's Don Gonyea.

You're most likely to find NPR's Don Gonyea on the road, in some battleground state looking for voters to sit with him at the local lunch spot, the VFW or union hall, at a campaign rally, or at their kitchen tables to tell him what's on their minds. Through countless such conversations over the course of the year, he gets a ground-level view of American elections. Gonyea is NPR's National Political Correspondent, a position he has held since 2010. His reports can be heard on all NPR News programs and at NPR.org. To hear his sound-rich stories is akin to riding in the passenger seat of his rental car, traveling through Iowa or South Carolina or Michigan or wherever, right along with him.
