Fox News gives President Barack Obama a thumbs down for his performance in the first 100 days in office.
Fox compiled a news package that attempts to point out controversial statements surounding Barack's presidency.
Featuring a variety of clips including former Obama Republican presidential opponent John McCain saying "You voted for change, but you're not getting any change today." The footage also shows Vice President Joe Biden saying "If we do everything right, there's still a 30 percent chance that we're going to get it wrong." Other notable statements include "President Obama, are you listening," "America's best days are behind her," "I want him to fail" and "There have been times where America has shown ignorance" from a random selection of politicians and Obama. The depiction offers viewers a propaganda-like projection and fails to provide a full-circle re-cap of the president's first 100 days in office. (Fox News)

"A lot of people got out to vote for the first time like myself and now that we got him in there we got to support him because he still got a whole lot of junk to fix up in a short amount of time," Jadakiss explained.
