Looking backwards or Forwards?

President Obama on Monday, Aug. 9th 2010:
The policies that crashed the economy, that undercut the middle class, that mortgaged our future, do we really want to go back to that, or do we keep moving our country forward?" Obama said at another fund-raising event in Austin, referring to Bush's eight years as president.
Can we really move forward if we are always looking backward? I won't forget the day that Major Matt Kaufman (now a retired lieutenant colonel and forever a great American) looked at a soldier who was complaining and simply said, "Its hard to roll up your sleeves when you are wringing your hands."

One wonders when the current president will take ownership of the situation and stop blaming someone else.
