George Will always sees the reality of the nation's dilemma, an inability to see beyond a two-year cycle and work toward a long-term solution. There is no leadership in government, no desire to uphold the oath of office our servants took with their fingers crossed. Postponing the inevitable results of spending beyond our means will come to an unhappy ending. Rest in peace, America the Beautiful.
