Today marks 100 days of President Barack Obama.
Yes, I know. So many people are talking about this it is getting boring already.
Nonetheless, lots of valuable information at Policy Watch, including this graph:
Somebody take back the credit cards!
1. In the US, NBC, CBS and ABC will screen Obama’s 100 day press conference. Fox will stick to its normal programming, screening the show ‘Lie to Me.’ Much mirth follows, as some commentators suggest it might be difficult to tell the difference.
2. White House staffer Robert Gibbs tells reporters they have earned a ‘strong A’ for their reporting on Obama’s first 100 days. In related news, circulation of US newspapers falls at unprecedented rates in the first three months of this year. Via Small Dead Animals.
Michelle Malkin has some interesting, and snarky, comments about the first 100 days, as well as the Scare Force One story:
Come on, who’s surprised? The White House-engineered photo-op of low-flying Air Force aircraft that caused terror in New York City this week epitomizes the Age of Obama. What better way to mark 100 days in office than with an appalling exercise in pointless, taxpayer-funded stagecraft.
The superficiality, the unseriousness, the hubris, the obliviousness to post-9/11 realities: They were trademarks of the Obama campaign and they are the tattoos on his governance.
He never leaves home without his teleprompter. All the Obama world’s a stage. Or a world ready to be staged.
