DNC Recognizes Republicans' "100 Days Of No"

Nancy Reagan's drug-prevention slogan, "Just say no," has become the GOP mantra on every issue since the election of Barack Obama. As the president nears his first 100 days, the Democratic National Committee is giving equal time to the Republicans by recognizing "The 100 Days of No" at a new web site. 

The site notes some of the more prominent unanimous–or nearly unanimous–Republican "no" votes on the State Children's Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP), the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act (fair pay for women), the Recovery Bill (economic stimulus measure) and the president's budget. Of course, the Republicans did propose their own budget, but even then they continued with the "no" theme. Their budget was highly unusual in that it contained no numbers.

Without further ado, here is the DNC's tribute to the GOP's "100 Days of No," one of several videos at the web site:
