When the Obama Girl, who managed to get over 24 million views on her “I Got a Crush…on Obama” video in 2007, says that she’s not sure she’s voting for Obama – you know he has a problem.
Amber Lee Ettinger explained recently to The Daily Caller that she is “not as excited as I was the last time, that’s for sure.” Amber poured herself (pun intended) into her campaign for Obama in 2007 and 2008, creating the wildly popular video that was posted by Barely Political on YouTube in June of 2007. She created other political videos at the time as well, and went on the interview circuit to Saturday Night Live, Geraldo at Large, The O’Reilly Factor and Hannity.
Now, whether Ettinger is simply being coy, waiting for big bucks or truly unsure about Obama is anyone’s guess. But it doesn’t make things look good for the Obama campaign. When the Obama Girl says,
“If I’m not making videos, I’m not sure it’s anyone’s business who I’m voting for this time around,” people are left wondering.
And for now, we’re simply left watching the 2007 hit and wondering if there will be a new, spruced up 2012 version.
