Obama's First 100 Days

I've been debating about posting any kind of "100 day assessment" of the Obama administration, but I thought I'd go ahead and get the ball rolling.  Use the "Comments" section to add to my list...

The Good...

- While it's clear that Obama's personal politics are about as far left as you can get, he's done a "reasonable" job of selecting a staff that keeps him from going off the deep end, so to speak
- He's done a fair job of moderating the extreme elements in the party that would like to execute the entire Bush administration along with Hannity, O'Reilly, Limbaugh and most conservative voters
- Has yet to break his campaign promise not to raise taxes on those earning under $250,000
- His promise to be a "unifier" seems to be working.  The Republican party is becoming more unified than it has been since the Reagan administration

The Bad...

- Trillion dollar deficits for generations to come
- World Apology Tour
- Bows to Saudi Arabia but not the Queen of England
- Allows Latin Dictators to insult him
- Expands abortion and stem cell research on fetuses, while cutting off stem cell research using adult stem cells

The Ugly...

- Has outed a dozen or so Democrats as tax cheats and then appointed them to his Administration
- While admitting to dozens of mistakes of the Bush administration, has yet to acknowledge that the spending going on right now could create long term problems while not providing short term solutions.  Apology owed.
- While critics complained that the war in Iraq distracted from the war on terror, Obama has pretty much cancelled the war on terror altogether.  Don't expect al-Qaeda to get the memo.  They will attack us again, and the next time it could be within our unprotected borders (again)
