Sanders brushes off Clinton criticism: 'Look forward and not backward'

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday brushed off Hillary Clinton’s criticism of him in her new book about the 2016 presidential election, saying he’s not interested in playing the blame game.
“My response is that right now it’s appropriate to look forward and not backward,” Sanders told The Hill.
“I’m working overtime now to see we overturn Trump’s decision on DACA, pass a $15-an-hour minimum wage and next week I’ll be offering a Medicare-for-all single-payer system,” he said.
Sanders said he wants to focus on the legislative challenges at hand and not debate who is to blame for President Trump’s stunning electoral upset of Clinton in November.
In some cases, I think it is wrong to say “look forward, not backward” – for example, when it’s used to excuse lack of consequences for Bush & Cheney, torture, banksters etc. But in this case, Bernie has it right.
Unfortunately there is a strong contingent of Hillary supporters who can’t let it go because deep inside they know they’re guilty and they can’t live with that guilt so they need to transfer it elsewhere. (If they don’t know they’re guilty, then they’re completely delusional.)Nedsdag, Two way street, Pastiche and 7 othersxynthee, frylock, disillusioned73, kath, HeartoftheMidwest, Polichick, closeupready like this
