Cafferty:Pres. Obama's biggest accomplishment in first 100 days?

A week from today will mark President Barack Obama's 100th day in office. And whether you agree with him or not — it's fair to say that the president has been one busy guy.

According to one report — a top White House aide says of the 100-day marker: "This isn't Biblical. You don't do 100 days and rest," but acknowledges that President Obama's first 100 days have been the most productive since FDR's.

Here's only some of what’s been on the president's plate:

– When it comes to the economy: the passage of the $787 billion economic stimulus bill, the bank bailout plan and housing recovery measures.

– Setting a fixed timetable for withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq and ordering an additional 21,000 troops to Afghanistan.

– Ordering the closing of Guantanamo Bay prison and ending the use of so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques."
