RNC Chair: Iraq War Bush's Biggest Mistake (VIDEO)

At a debate between candidates vying to lead the Republican National Committee, current chairman Mike Duncan said that President Bush's biggest mistake was "prosecution of the war."

"I think we failed in the way, originally, we were prosecuting the war," Duncan said in response to moderator Grover Norquist's question. Most of his rivals highlighted Bush's economic policy and spending. Former Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele listed the "failure to communicate on the war, Katrina, the bailout," and said he could add more.
