How many times have you heard this in the last seven years of this administration?
"Don't look back..."
"Past is past, we need to concentrate on the future..."
"The Democrats shouldn't waste their time with investigations of the past but work on solving the problems of the future" (George W. Bush, paraphrased)
And you always hear it from the Republicans. Why do you suppose they don't want us to think about the past?
Could it be because we might remember the President's failure to even read the NIA warning about Bin Laden's plan to attack us with hijacked aircraft?
Or his lies about WMD's and an Iraq/Al Queda connection?
Or his incompetence after Katrina (heckuva job, Brownie)?
Or the huge National Deficit (and corporate profits) he's created with his war in Iraq?
I don't know... Why do YOU think Republicans keep repeatedly telling us not to look back?
They might try to give it a positive spin, like "We need to look forward, and solve the problems of the future that matter to the American People, not waste time worrying about the past..."
I can almost guarantee it will be a Republican, or a conservative supporter, who said it.
