Kerry Statement on President Obama's First 100 Days
Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.), Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement this afternoon to mark President Barack Obama's first one hundred days in office:
"These first hundred days will forever be compared favorably to Roosevelt and Reagan for the change in priorities an American president delivered. Gone is go-it-alone, cowboy diplomacy, replaced with a bold approach to engagement and a comprehensive approach to American security. Gone is the willful indifference towards health care, the economy, and global climate change, replaced with a major reordering of domestic priorities, laser-like focus on fixing the fundamentals of the economy and investing in jobs, respecting science, and restoring openness and transparency in government. These are big bold changes, not tinkering around the edges of the old way of doing things."
