Tell us how you think President Barack Obama has handled the economic crisis so far. What's he done right? And what's he gotten wrong?
The infamous "Obama Girl" whose viral video "Crush on Obama" made her an Internet sensation during the 2008 presidential campaign says she no longer has a passionate crush on President Obama. Known to the world as "Obama Girl," Amber Lee Ettinger said in an interview on Fox News about Obama's first year as president: "Broken promises. People like -- talk is cheap; actions speak louder than words."
Explaining to Fox's Sean Hannity the analogy between her crush on Obama and real life romance, she explained that "even with a relationship, you know, once people - your boyfriend, girlfriend doesn't do what they say they're going to do, you kick them to the curb."Like most crushes, "Obama Girl" realized that the reality of the man fell short of her fantasy. "I just don't have that big crush like I used to," she said, though conceding she's not given up entirely on her guy, grading him a B minus on a scale of A-F.During the 2008 presidential campaign, the "Crush on Obama" video -- which was not connected to the candidate or his campaign -- gave a boost to the sexy, youth-oriented allure of Obama. "Obama Girl" became infamous for singing about her crush wearing, alternately, a tight tank top with Obama's face on it, a pink bikini and hot pants with "Obama" printed across the rear. To date, the video on YouTube has over 16 million hits.
The song lyrics include: "You're into border security. Let's break this border between you and me. Universal health care reform. It makes me warm. You tell the truth unlike the right. You can love but you can fight. You can Barack me tonight. I've got a crush on Obama.""Obama Girl" has learned, real life (or in her case, real/imaginary political life) intruded on the fantasy. "If I had this crush on him the same way as I did in the beginning, I'd be the fool. You know, it's like a relationship. When you get into a relationship with somebody they're all great and perfect, they say all the right things," she said on Fox. "And then once you're in the relationship it's like, OK, they're not that perfect."But, "Obama Girl" concedes, her infactuation with a presidential candidate and ensuing reality check could have been a lot worse: "Well, at least I wouldn't be the 'Edwards Girl', right?"
*The reason that I found this so interesting is the change in attitude that does seem to be a reflection of some of those who voted for Obama. His campaign promises were referred to as Obamamania. His voter baseline included the young (Obama Girl video) and first time voters.
I did follow the promises and I don't (my opinion ) think that several of the most important issues, i.e. lobbyists, healthcare reform and foreign policies have been addressed. Just over a year in office and there have been too many of those promises that have gone by the way. There will always be critics and that's a given!
Okay . . . I do know that I will incur the wrath of the Obama Yeddites!
This is not the usual for me and please do not infer what I did not imply~
Honey, their opinion is as revalavent as hannitys. No one but right wingers takes the opinion of entertainers seriously. Thats why you people watch fox opinion news.
Hi there dfrogpong!
'Right Wingers' was a part of the the lyrics in that song. She isn't a professional entertainer and that was ALL in support of Obama. I missed all of that -- confession time: I don't watch television AT ALL! Did you read my comment?
Hope you are doing well and take care ~
the judge aka dogie, read your ignorant posts and comments.
Read the answer you posted with the approval ratings for Obama! I gave you a helpful on that one. Perhaps you need to read that again. Do you realize the % ratings for Obama? Now you can't blame me for a post such as this when your own answer provides the same information!
"Read you comments" Froggy doesn't read comments just goes around slandering
