Dark Clouds and Silver Linings

This was definitely not a good week for the President. With the expansion of military trials of suspected terrorists, the expedited process for  pipeline approval, the further erosion of health care reform by permitting states more control over the particulars of coverage, and the overruling of the FDA position on access to the morning after pill,  it was but one discouraging event after another. Add in the temporary and tenuous continuation of the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits, and I find little holiday cheer.  I am a staunch advocate of the President and his policy positions, but I wish I didn't have to keep looking for silver linings in so many dark clouds.
