For grins and chuckles, I thought it might be interesting to see what things about President Obama make conservatives say, "Good point" or "Good job" or "Thank you!" I will offer a few observations to get it rolling. President Obama is taking the fight against the likes of al qaeda into Afghanistan (and has been doing so rather consistently since becoming President). I think these are smart moves by him and I don't mind giving him credit because I think he has earned credit for that. ------------- President Obama has indicated that he is open to keeping provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act. I realize that many of my conservative brothers and sisters hate that Act as do most liberals. That's ok. To my view, it is a practical necessity and if kept under close scrutiny (checks and balances), it is a perfectly Constitutional and proper governmental power. I give him kudos for NOT being such a doctrinaire liberal that he found it necessary to undermine our national security. -------------- President Obama (even if off the record and even if it was shoddy of Terrry Moran to report the off the record material) did say that Kanye West was a "jackass." I not only agree with that assessment of Kanye West by President Obama, but I got the impression, when I heard the tape getting played, that President Obama was being genuine. He seems, sometimes, like a real regular guy. I can't imagine agreeing with him on very much politically, but I can imagine having a brew with him and discussing many other things in a way that wouldn't be anything but a pleasant session. Objectively, my view is he deserves props for being a basically good person, even if I think he has his head up his ass most of the time politically.
