Obama's 100 Days a 'Hallmark Holiday'

Maybe since they're naming it after a greeting card company they can send out some bereavement cards commemorating the death of capitalism.
President Obama starts the week of his "First Hundred Days" milestone (on Wednesday April 29) with a 69 percent approval rating, and 50 percent of the country thinking the U.S. is on the right track -- the highest rating in six years. (In October, only 8 percent of the American people thought the nation was on the right track.)

The White House calls the "100 Days" marker a "Hallmark Holiday" -- a day of little actual significance, but probably best to play along and exchange cards anyway.
Not everyone will be celebrating.
"All new presidents get the benefit of the doubt for the first three months," adds Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas. "That benefit of the doubt will evaporate shortly when the impact of his policies becomes better known."
