22. So? We Should Be Encouraging It In My Opinion.
We touted the 100 hours and made it quite public. It only stands to reason that we would now be expected to follow through on our promise.

I am proud of the Dems and their 100 hour agenda, and I see no reason to be anything but excited at our ability to enact it. Having a countdown clock just gives us something to accomplish and then tout afterwards our victory in coming through.

I have no reason to believe the Dems will not come through or that in the end we will not be quite proud of them. I also see no reason for some of the defeatism in this thread that right out of the gates already puts forth some doom and gloom tone as if we are completely going to fail in the agenda or something, and the countdown clock is a way to cement that failure. Why start off with such a negative attitude? Why portray an atmosphere of failure when we are just getting started? That is what I have goin through my head.

I say we will come through and I am damn proud of my Dems for their agenda. The countdown clock will only be a fun motivator to get things done and afterwards confirmation of our aggressively productive agenda.
