Actually, via ARRA funds I got a very low paying entry level clerical job at the company I work for and through my dedication to the job was promoted 3 times within 2 years and now am head of a department making three times what I was originally making so in a way it did have a positive change on my life.

And FWIW, the lady in the first video did not say that Obama was going to pay for her mortgage. A lot of posters here put her on as some proof of black people wanting entitlements I guess but she didn't say that he was going to pay her bills.

The only positive thing that has changed my life in a positive way with obama is now I am firmly 100% convinced that every time a politician opens their mouth and speaks they are deceiving American citizens....

My child might come home to live with me after she graduates instead of moving away for a nice job like the one in 2008 did. I do love spending time with my children, even though they are grown.

None. Not one at all but then because I'm a working, taxpaying American citizen, I doubt a single one of his edicts was meant to benefit me in any way.

I wasn't aware he had issued any edicts, if you'll tell me them, I'll let you know.

Well.. the government takes 2% less out of my FICA taxes. That's a double-edged sword, however. Bankrupting it faster is probably a good thing and will expedite the inevitable collapse or significant reduction in social security benefits. Since it probably won't be addressed until it becomes an imminent concern anyway, I guess I count that as a positive. The solution will come sooner and I have 2% more money. It's like a weak form of privatized social security.
