Obama, and the "First 100 Days"

Every day you learn something new...

As the liberal media prattles on about Obama's "first 100 days" in office, and all the things he is expected to do/change/elevate/eliminate/excavate/deliberate, let's take a look at where that phrase originated, and how it ended up on day 100:

Not yet a third of the way through the president's "first 100 days," he and we should remember that it was not FDR's initial burst of activity in 1933 that put the phrase "100 days" into the Western lexicon.

It was Napoleon's frenetic trajectory in 1815 that began with his escape from Elba and ended near the Belgian village of Waterloo.

Hmmm....and we know how much history loves to repeat istelf...
