I've been pretty negative about our illustrious president around here lately, so I thought it might be good to look on the bright side, as a mental exercise, just to prove that I haven't lost the ability. Accentuate the positive.

Here are some things I like about the Obama presidency.

1. Ending the war in Iraq (though much too late).

2. Ending the war in Afghanistan (if it ever happens).

3. Ending the practice of waterboarding. (It's torture and it's wrong.)

4. Having a president who uses a teleprompter. (I wish GWB had used a teleprompter more often.)

5. Having a president who is not exactly a Muslim. (Learn to appreciate the little things.)

6. The auto industry bailout. (It needed to happen.)

There. How about my fellow conservatives? Can you come up with five? Three? One?

7. Social conservatives know exactly where they stand with Obama. That would not have been true with Romney. (Clarity is liberating.)

Hmmmm. A social conservative just posted 6 things about Obama that he likes, obviously with sincerity and respect.

And a liberal responds that she likes that Obama drives social conservatives insane?

I'm going to have to say that the thing I like about Obama is that apparently he has driven liberals insane.

I appreciate a conservative who can see through the mudslinging coming from both sides. Not everything should be negative.

Hope they're not too loud, they might end up in a secret C.I.A. stronghold in Benghazi or something...

Oh hush. WP knows I like an opportunity to tease him.
