A development just a third of the way through President Obama’s First Hundred Days may come to define his presidency.
In today’s CNN Radio Political Notebook, CNN's Bob Costantini talks with Professor Julian Zelizer of Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School, who lays out the stakes Obama faces following the passage of the stimulus plan.
In his commentary for CNN.com, Professor Zelizer wrote, “The huge size of this legislation raises the stakes beyond what many presidents confronted in their Hundred Days.”

Are we on the road to the Socialization of America? It seems to me the government is getting bigger (task forces) by the day . They want to gain control by virtue of providing Federal funding to various businesses that all seem to be involved in Unions. Why do we need the Unions anymore anyhow? At one time, they were necessary but have become part of the greed of the U.S.. Where are their concessions? The Democrats are merely buying their votes. "Buy America" also aimed at the Unionized steel industry. President Obama seems to have no trouble spending taxpayer money travelling all over the country when he can deal with these issues from the White House. It is amazing how the American people suffer while the politicians campaign for 2010 and beyond.
IT'S STRANGE HOW MUCH PRESIDENT OBAMA IS HELD
ACCOUNTABLE FOR EVERYTHING ON THE PLANET & BUSH
WASN'T HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR NOTHING , NOT EVEN
FOR BRAKING NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL LAWS.
In one day... Obama will create MORE debt than George Bush did in 8 years!!
THAT's change we can believe in?????
America is getting PUNK'D by democrats!
In 2 years, when the American people see what the liberals have done to this country with DEBT, they will kick BO and his crowd out of office.
Thank you CNN for getting Tired of spinning news!!
Obama inherited two wars, already a huge deficit. If the Republicans don't want the stimulus and are concerned about the money being spent then their state doesn't have to take the money. The stimulus might not work but at least Obama gave it a try. He reached out to Republicans and they withdrew their hand. It is just getting really old to hear them whine.
Like it or not, he is our president now. He is human and he will make mistakes just like we all do. I believe though, that when this man makes a mistake, he will admit to it. That alone would be a welcome change in Washington. For the sake of the country, I hope his plan works. As for the GOP, I think that they are full of sour grapes. They didn't get thier way so they want to throw a tantrum. When my children act like that I make them sit and hold hands for 15 minutes until they can speak civil to each other. What say we try that in congress?
if our house republicans are so interested and concerned about our nation and it's people why are they playing inmature childless games with our new pesident and his efforts to get on the right track/
Uncle Rush wants 25% of the American people unemployed and in bread lines so he can say,I told you so,while he eats caviar and smokes his fat cigars.Well if it gets that bad,he better leave the country,I got a feeling people will be looking for his freezer.
Look President Obama walked into a Huge mess, I mean a Huge Mess left by that Idiot we called a President. now in regards to the Stimuls I Am all for it will it all work time will tell, maybe some will work and some wont but I do Know this I would rather have my Tax Dollars spent here in America and its Future then Have my tax Dollars go to Iraq or Wall St for Bonuses! President Obama has not even been President a Month yet At least he is doing something Unlike that Idiot we called a President GIVE THE MAN A CHANCE!
I am happy with Mr. Obama, any time of the day than I would with the Clintons in the white house!
Maurice, we tried giving people checks. Barely any of the money got spent.
Republicans says that Goverment if the problem not the solution......
This time Goverment is the problem in ruining our economy and therefore has to fix it!
If it works and I believe it will, his critics will just find something else to bash him about. For this country sake I hope he prove these folks wrong and move forward with his agenda. God speed.......
May God bless you Mr. Obama!
God speed Mr. Obama!
To Griff, The Truth and the rest of you traitors. You have been moaning and complaining since November 5 2008. That is over 3 months of complaining on a daily basis. You're tired smears and recitations of FOX News puns (Spendulous) are just that...TIRED. You are shallow pathetic people who criticize but offer no solutions. You are all a disgrace to the USA.
We love you our President!
Hope through change. Whatever!
Thank God it is President Obama in charge and not the bitter old man who thought the "fundamentals of the economy are sound".
I guess he could have asked the half-wit and Phil Gramm for some advice...
