Historically, the first 100 days of a new president's administration are significant Carl. The term the first 100 days dates back to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. You might know him as FDR. He signed 15 bills into law during his first 100 days in office.
从历史上看，新总统执政的头100天意义重大。“头100天”这个词可以追溯到富兰克林·德拉诺·罗斯福(Franklin Delano Roosevelt)总统。你可能知道他叫罗斯福。在他上任的100天里，他签署了15项法案，使之成为法律。
Since then, presidents have been judged for how (inaudible) on what they accomplish during the same period. When FDR took office in 1933. he faced the "Great Depression", time of major economic crisis. Unemployment had reached an estimated 25 percent.
During his first 100 days of office, FDR worked with Congress to roll out the "New Deal", an aggressive policy agenda that set up to get the country back on track. The newly elected Democratic majority in Congress was eager to help pass the new president's legislation.
FDR signed 15 major bills into law during his first 100 days including the Emergency (inaudible), the Public Works Administration, the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the National Industrial Recovery Act and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Since then, the first few months of the new administration has provided a glimpse into the president's governing style and set the tone for what the commander-in-chief hopes to accomplish.
Ronald Reagan who was shot in the chest on his 59th day in office signed his first bill into law from the George Washington University Hospital. And on the eve of his 100th day in office, he delivered an address to a joint session of Congress. George W. Bush marked the occasion by inviting all 535 members of Congress to the White House for lunch.
And on his 100th day in office, Barack Obama held a primetime news conference in the East Wing of the White House. But despite the tradition Carl, some presidents have said that judging them on their first 100 days is unreasonable as it doesn't give a new president enough time to accomplish their goals. John F. Kennedy famously said that even the first 1.000 days wouldn't be enough time either.
在奥巴马执政的第100天，他在白宫东翼举行了一场黄金时段的新闻发布会。尽管有卡尔这样的传统，但一些总统表示，只在总统就职100天内评判他们是不合理的，因为这样一来新总统就没有足够的时间来完成目标。约翰·f·肯尼迪(John F. Kennedy)曾说过一句名言:即使是3年的时间也不够用。
