Pick up Sunday, July 24th 2011 Chicago Tribune and go to page 25 in the NATION & WORLD section. There you will find a photograph of two men with sad and I believe perplexed looks on their faces...expressions that are beyond words to explain the fatigue and emotional distress expressed on their faces and body postures.
Read the article by Peter Nicholas and Lisa Mascaro if you want; but I don't think it can add much more than the expressions on both mens' faces. On the left, House Speaker John Boehner and on the right President Obama.
I looked at this photograph and saw two different views of the United States' projected trajectory; one directed toward bigger government, more taxes and a larger deficit and one toward smaller government, less taxes and a smaller deficit. The perplexing part is that each man thinks he is correct in his views and that his views are what the American people want.
I say a prayer every night for the politicians, given the power by "the people" to make the prudent and correct decisions that will be the best ones for all the people of the United States of America.
