President Obama’s First 100 Days

“With the magnitude of the challenges we face right now, what we need in Washington are not more political tactics — we need more good ideas. We don’t need more point-scoring — we need more problem-solving.”    President Obama, press conference, Mar. 17, 2009

When I was very young, I always loved going to my Aunt’s house.  She had no daughters, so I was always the center of attention whenever I visited.  She also subscribed to Life Magazine.  How I loved looking at all of those wonderful photographs.  I learned so much about my nation and my world.   History and geography blended with pop culture in every issue.  I  also learned that  I wanted to be really rich when I grew up or,  at least, a movie star.

A little of that feeling showed up yesterday while flipping through Time Magazine’s behind the scene’s  photo essay on President Obama’s First 100 Days. Now I just want to be invited to ride on Air Force One.  Dinner at the White House wouldn’t be bad either.

A very balanced comparison of the Obama and Bush first hundred days appears in today’s  Christian Science Monitor’s Patchwork Nation Blog.  Worth a read.

Oh Happy Day
