Dennis Prager interesting article on what you won't see on State of Union

If you are like me you will dread watching the State of the Union tonight from this president. As Stuart Varney has said on Sean Hannity's show, it will be all smoke and mirrors. A 5 year freeze on discretionary spending... yeah, freeze them at the high numbers of Obama---who wants that?  Ending of earmarks...we've been down this road before in Obama's promise during his 2008 presidential campaign..who believes that.  Easing of regulations...yeah, does that mean he will end his Obamacare plan with all of the stifling regulations on business and citizens, no.. does that mean he will hold back his EPA from it's regulations on business...what do you think?  The whole speech will be smoke and mirrors-i.e., useless.

So, if you do give in like me and watch the speech..here is one interesting thing to look and see if it shows up.  This is from a great article by Dennis Prager in Jewish World Review.

Dennis Prager:
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 ascending the rostrum to be greeted by the vice president and the speaker of the House, the president giving his speech and the reactions of members of the Congress and others in the hall.
Here 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 of the House. And because you won't see it, you won't know that you are missing something of surpassing importance.
Think about it for a moment. Why do television cameras never pull back and give a wide-angle view of the president delivering his speech? That is certainly routine for TV: It is considered uninteresting to TV viewers to have a fixed view of a subject.
Why, then, have almost no Americans ever seen what is located above the president, the vice president and the speaker of the House?
I discovered the answer when I attended President Obama's speech on health care to a joint session of Congress.
I saw chiseled in the marble wall behind the speaker and vice president, in giant letters, the words "In G0d We Trust."
My immediate reaction was to wonder: Why had I never seen that before? I have, after all, been watching presidential State of the Union addresses for about 40 year
