President Obama's first one hundred days has many people in our part of the country evaluating what he has done so far.

Since the moment he took office, all eyes have been on Obama, the public evaluating his every move.

"I'd say I'm republican and I voted for him anyhow. I think he's doing a real good job so far," said James Morris.

"Well I think Obama's done a very good job at captivating the Americas, the American people's hope and trust," said Benny Bailey, a political science professor.

He says even though one hundred days is a small scale on measuring future success, he says Obama has hit the ground running.

"For one hundred days he's put out some very ambitious goals, he has tried to reassure Americans in confidence in the government that they previously lost," he said.

"With the stimulus packages and stuff and helping people get back on track, I think he's done an excellent job. I like him as far as that is," said Kristy Noble.

However some voice concerns about paying that money back.

"I question some the spending, it may be too much," said Julius Ritchie.

Overall, a majority of the people we talked to say he is living up to his message of change

"I think the reason I voted for him is the way he talked about changing the economy and health care issues, and he seems to be kept up with his word so far," said Lee Fox.

He and others say they are looking forward to the next one hundred days and beyond.
