Paradox in political popularity

Dear Editor,

What’s Wrong With This Picture (part one): “The Appropriations Committee … excluded $51 million the Energy Department has considered essential for the new nuclear weapons research programs.” (GSPI, 7/15)

What is the Energy Department doing with a nuclear weapons program in the first place?

What’s Wrong With This Picture (part two): In California, the governor has ruined the economy and created a huge budget deficit, and the Republicans want to recall him. In Washington, the president has done the same thing, and they want to re-elect him.

Is this a great country or what?
