The term, first 100 days, comes from FDR’s New Deal and how much he got done. Ever since, presidents are compared to FDR’s first hundred days like a failing schoolchild and his older sibling. But even that is too little time to judge. Look at President Bush, who had a fairly good 100 days in office (ultimately nothing really bad happened). But fast forward and what do you have, a terrible presidency that has led this country into two wars and an unbelievable debt.
Obama scored relatively well, even talking head Bill O’Reilly gave him a B on domestic policies. But regardless, the media, especially CNN, has hyped this event as if it is the Superbowl of his administration.
