The Clip Show, Part The Fourth

19.November 2008

This is an awesome graphic comparing the first 100 Days in Office of all the presidents since FDR. They’ve pulled famous quotes from inauguration speeches (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”; “Ask not what your country can do for you…”; “A thousand points of light”), violent moments (JFK assassination, Reagan shooting, etc.), and major policy moves (the pardon of draft dodgers, Emergency Banking Act, etc.). It’s really fascinating to see where lots was happening and who didn’t get jack done (Nixon and – oddly – JFK, I’m looking at you) and to imagine how the days between January 20 and April 30, 2009 will look. (Also to think about the 100 Days of Action – fun project.)
