Obama: git r done

Finally, some good news about the economy.

Many believe the economy could start growing again by summer or, more likely, by the final quarter of this year, as the impact of tax cuts and increased government spending on big public works projects contained in Obama's $787 billion stimulus package takes hold.

So much for Obama's first 100 days being mixed results. Kind of fitting his first 100 days saw major agendas (end of the war, Stimulus Plan, repairing international relations) for success drafted similar to the 100 days FDR drafted the New Deal.

Obama has signed more executive orders, memoranda and proclamations in his first 100 days than any president since Franklin Roosevelt. One notable order lifted former President George W. Bush's restrictions on federal funding for human embryonic stem cell research. Obama also spent more of those first months outside the country than any of his 43 predecessors, according to the American Presidency Project .
