Reports that key Republican conservatives want President George Bush to use his 1992 convention acceptance speech to apologize for having reneged on his read-my-lips, no-new-taxes pledge at the 1988 convention. Bush has already admitted that his decision to go along with the 1990 budget summit deal and raise taxes was a `mistake.' Other things Bush needs to admit to; Why Budget chief Dick Darman opposes such a pledge.
