    100 days definitely not enough. Setting-up alone takes time. Making a : plan, budget,officers/staff/personnel,infra-structure, blablabla.........

    I totally agreed that president Obama needs more than 100 days to perform all that he wants to do. But, we must not forget the facts that, for the first 100 days, he has achived a lot even if we dont want to acknowledge that. I gave him 100% because of the efforts that he has shown so far.

    It is not easy to be a leader, whereby everything is staring at you in the face looking for your attention. The dilegence and the wisdom that he exhibits is something to praise him for. i want to wish him and vice president Biden for a job well done.

    GOOD MORNING THE GOOD BIT OF AMERICA!
    It's been brilliant that we've been able to follow the exploits of business globally during dangerous days.
    Those with their heads still screwed on already know what it takes.
    I know this particular figure is HIGH in America & even Barack Obama & CNN deserves this feedback from YOU after 100 days....
    HOW MANY OF YOU THINK YOUR BOSS HAS BEEN BRILLIANT RIGHT THROUGH EVERY DANGEROUS DAY?
    A POSITIVE answer proves your boss has ESSENTIAL QUALITIES.
    ESSENTIAL QUALITIES LIKE....
    THE ABILITY TO RESTORE & MAINTAIN CONFIDENCE.
    THE ABILITY TO RESTORE & MAINTAIN DISCIPLINE.
    Every GOOD American WORKER knew all along the most important STRENGTH is GOOD ATTITUDE TO DISCIPLINE.
    Every GOOD American WORKER knew all along to STAY OUT OF TROUBLE.
    Change is afoot in America & the FUTURE of America RELIES on EVERY GOOD AMERICAN WORKER'S ABILITY TO FEED THE ECONOMY – PROPERLY.
    YOUR TARGET AS ALWAYS = 100% EFFICIENCY.
    If you agree with everything I say, send the TRUE TEAMWORK response back to Washington "OUR BOSS IS BRILLIANT!"
    (PROPER PATRIOTISM WAS NEVER A PIPE-DREAM)
    KEEP YOUR BOSS HAPPY FOR A BETTER THANKSGIVING!
    Best Wishes DISCIPLINED America

    Obama needs to prioritize and fix the immigration process. We've been waiting over 6 months to get my British husband's Visa! We were told when we started it would ONLY take 90 days! Argh!

    Mr. Obama learnt all the political drama from Indian leaders to trance the USA voters..... and knows to balance Americans under his forefinger. If he has erased GM CEO then why is he delaying the balancing act to protect the Citi bank CEO?
    Yes Professor Quest we donates Obama 1000 days instead of extra 100 days to create a hollow space for all the future generations to beg for Trillions of handouts.....he is on the wrong track and needs Einsteins theory of relativity....E=mc2.

    Cheers Richard! I agree that Obama needs more than 100 days to sort out this economic mess. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he will be as innovative as Roosevelt. Thanks.

    100 days are just not enough to expect much. But here is something for consolation as President has mentioned repeatedly “things will be better than past and present." Be patient…

    I think Mr. Obama has done decently well given his lack of prior administrative experience. This is from a comfortable 3rd party point of view.

    What he needs to now his build a network of acolytes, and 'myrmidons', if you will, who echo his strategic mindset and strategy, in the various layers of government, whether the Congress, Senate, or the various Departments, along with the Media and Industry.

    Making a great speech or two is great, but its better for him to follow Kotters 8 phases of management, and to take a leaf out of John Boyd, and Stimsons playbook.

    He's a great president, not just for the US, but for the free world, too. But he has to step it up a notch.

    After all Obama isnt a magician! Still, the enormity of the tasks he has achieved in just a 100 days speaks volumes not just of his intent but also of his abilites. I sincerely hope he lives up to the expectations of people not just in the US but also around the world.

    AFTER 100 DAYS OF BARACK OBAMA......
    WHO ELSE IS PLAYING ARMAGEDDON 3D????
    The British have just been forced out of Iraq by God's own Peace.
    Soon, the same will happen in Afghanistan.
    And, soon, the same will happen to America.
    YOU ARE BEING FORCED TO ACCEPT THE WILL OF GOD.
    British troops in Iraq were FORCED to accept the GOOD NEWS in the Bible & the BBC echoed the GOOD NEWS.
    It's time to say GOODBYE to the Devil.
    The Devil is being defeated on all fronts.
    The Devil is facing the consequence of his actions.
    The Devil is slightly more astute than Satan however.
    The Devil & Co only go to Hell, whereas Satan & Co are headed to OBLIVION.
    Now, where does America fit in with the Brotherhood of Man?
    Perhaps America prefers the ways of Purgatory instead.
    IS AMERICA PLAYING ARMAGEDDON 3D YET?
    ARMAGEDDON = BOWING TO THE WILL OF GOD.
    Now look outside the CNN studios again & answer this question....
    WHO ELSE IS PLAYING ARMAGEDDON 3D??????
    Have a nicer day America,
    Regards

    In India Politicians during Campaign Trail….speaks of ” S V CAN” volumes of “will do” projects, restructures, bailouts…..you name it …..even about disbanding western cultured Colo Cola “CAN”……and even lays out foundation stones for future roads, bridges and the railways…and years later the stones moves to be the corner stones of toilets or lavatories. Prof. Quest, is 999 not better than 100…..and all the lost job sheep of recession, financial crisis will take shape before the next USA election.Mr. Obama is dreaming, banking and accounting for next VOTES but until then….be on your mark….set…and go for free falls,layouts and handouts….with tongues hanging out watering for basic fundamentals. We are celebrating and protesting "MAY DAY" on the streets for our daily survival....and let Obama keep on feeding the white house dogs.

    Couldn't have said it better DAVE DAWSON.

    100 days – more like 8 years is needed to bring America back from the brink.
    It's not all about spending vast amounts of taxpayer money,which of course,is part of the recovery. It is about a new vision for America not chained to the past and not formulated by WW2 era veterns who are Conservative and Caucasian.

    America is a great country!

    Obama in this situation is facing difficulties as he is fixing the us recession but how he fixes it will impact the world. Long story short cut the guy some slack he doesnt need anymore preasure than there already is.

    In my estimation, the President Obama be given a bit more time so as to solve the huge economic problems the US is faced with. I believe he and his team has what it takes to tackle the issues appropriately.

    100 days are the first steps toward to complete 4 years. I'm 100% sstisfied and hopeful, Obama will deliver what he promised.

    Obama said jokingly last weekend, "My first 100 days have gone so well that I estimate I will be able to complete the next 100 in just 72 days." Then he added, "and on the 73rd day I shall rest." he was still joking of course but I think it was his way of saying that he's planned a vacation after the next 2 and half months, clever guy.
