Even more money quote

D'oh! This is the one I should have pushed, fromt hat same Krugman Op-Ed:

We need to do this for the sake of our future. For this isn’t about looking backward, it’s about looking forward — because it’s about reclaiming America’s soul.

That's the key, and that's what has bugged me most about Obama's pathetic proclamations of the need to look forward, not backwards. That's what justice IS! Prosecuting crimes is premised on what happened - which is the past, but is for the purpose of a better future in the hopes that similar crimes will be deterred.

For someone as smart as Obama to espousing garbage like "look forward, not backwards" with regard to our leaders who broke our most important laws is perplexing. I just don't get it.
