Is Obama Moving Too Fast in His First Few Days in Office?

He promised change in the campaign. How much does he expect in his first week as president?


The Associated Press sums up President Obama's second full day in office: "President Barack Obama moved quickly Thursday to reshape U.S. national-security policy, ordering the Guantánamo Bay prison camp closed within a year, forbidding the harshest treatment of terror suspects and naming new envoys to the Middle East and Afghanistan-Pakistan." This in addition to the moves President-elect Obama made during the transition into office—specifically, asking Bush to request additional TARP funds from Congress. Is President Obama moving too fast? How much does he expect to get done in his first few days in office? How much should we expect? Post your thoughts.
