Signed an executive order giving amnesty to children brought to this country illegally by their parents (at least temporarily). It's not the same thing as comprehensive immigration reform, but it's a step in the right direction.

Both Ohio and Pennsylvania had unemployment rates of 7.3 percent in May, well below the national average of 8.2 percent.

I found this link by accident. Pretty informative - there is a link for part one under the photo of President Obama.

I know this a serious thread, but someone on Twitter just added something too good to hold back:

Lest we forget, Palin warned us about Russia's imminent attack on Alaska. No one has credited Obama with preventing invasion.

OBAMA: HE KEPT THE NATION SAFE FROM THE SOVIET UNION!

To be fair the President doesn't actually have that much control over the economy... Especially with a Republican controlled House. It's good to see the unemployment rate going down in any case.

When I saw pictures of Obama hugging and comforting storm victims in NJ on the news the other day, it brought tears to my eyes. I can't imagine Romney having the compassion to put his arms around someone in a situation like that.
