Et tu, Obama Girl?


On the day of Obama’s “State of Trying to Socialize the Union” speech comes even more bad news. The woman who was two of Barack Obama’s strongest supporters during the campaign has been struck by reality:

First, Massachusetts turned on the president.

Now, the bikini-clad “Obama Girl” — who famously cooed about her “crush” throughout the presidential campaign on YouTube videos — admits the thrill is gone.

Amber Lee Ettinger — the buxom sensa tion who lip-synched about her love for then-candidate Barack Obama — said she wishes he spent his first year in office more fo cused on fixing the abysmal economy.
Ettinger, 28, said that even though she doesn’t have health care — “I can’t afford it” — she still thinks Obama should have waited to tackle the thorny legislation that has been blamed for the devastating Democratic loss of Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat.

“It’s definitely a distraction because of the economy being as bad as it is,” said the Jersey City resident.

“He did create some jobs, but most of them were government jobs and that doesn’t really help the middle class. But it helps a bit,” said Ettinger.

Good Lord, Obama Girl knows more about economics than the Obama administration, and as such she’s just ensured that she’ll never get a job with this particular White House.

Obama Girl and Peggy the Moocher (inspiration for the “Peggy Effect” which is used to explain The One’s falling approval ratings) should hook up so they can console each other. It’s been over a year and still no free health care. No free mortgage. No free gas. No jobs. Ted Kennedy’s seat taken by Republicans. Sigh.

Here’s Obama Girl in happier, more hopeful times:
