Plans For 83 Days

Now here is another way of looking at how Barack Obama may plan out his first 83 days in office.  Never mind the “First 100 Days” yardstick that many use to measure up to in the Oval Office.    

Kevin Horrigan at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch brings us The first 83 days.

And here is a good start to this searingly satirical piece, and of course, the envisioned initial 83 day legacy of Obama’s White House legacy.  Let the image and the video kick it off. 

“Barack Obama joins Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa, for a few frames at Pleasant Valley Bowling Center in Altoona, Pa. Obama, who rolled a few gutter balls, said he hadn’t bowled since he was 16.  April 1, 2008.”

Every new president tries to emulate Franklin D. Roosevelt’s famous “100 Days” strategy of 1933 with a blitz of new initiatives, but Barack Obama is so special he’ll need only 83.
