Tonight, when you see President Obama give his State of the Union address, you will see four things:
the President entering the hall,
the President greeting by the Vice President and the Speaker of the
the President giving his speech,
and the reactions of members of the Congress and others.
There is the one thing you will not see and probably have never seen. You won’t see what is behind the President and above the Vice President and the Speaker. And you won’t know that you are missing something of importance.
Ever wonder why television cameras never pull back and give a wide-angle view of the President delivering his speech? It’s routine for TV: It is considered uninteresting to TV viewers to have a fixed view of a subject.
So what is up there?
Chiseled in the marble wall behind the Speaker and Vice President, in giant letters, the words…
"In God We Trust."
