Roses and Thorns

Over at my White House Watchers group, I've issued you readers a challenge.

At dinnertime, the Obama family plays a game called "Roses and Thorns": Everyone takes a turn describing one good thing that happened that day (rose) and one low moment or tough problem they had to deal with (thorn).

So let's play a modified version. I would like each of you to describe one good thing that Obama has done, and one bad thing he has done. That's right, everyone has to do one of each – no matter how you feel about the man.

OK? Well, get posting!
