Obama's first 100 days was decked with fighting global terror, an economic crisis worse than the great depression of the 1930s and a pandemic, swine flu.
He has made milestone changes in foreign relations with Cuba and Iraq along with policy shifts towards China and Mexico. In an effort to improve economic status, he has provided for 787-billion-dollar stimulus bill, along with environmental and health care reforms on the launch.
Obama's own spokesman Robert Gibbs gave Obama a grade of "B plus," observing that 'there's always room for improvement'. A survey on Obama's leadership showed positive reactions of the people towards him with 63 per cent approving his presidency.
