Sorry, Obama! ‘Obama Girl’ Won’t Endorse You in 2012
Remember Amber Lee Ettinger, the woman who earned the nickname “Obama Girl” during the 2008 presidential campaign when she posted a music video showing her affection for the then presidential nominee? It became one of the most talked about viral videos on the web in the lead up to Obama’s impending victory. But with re-election a few months from now, “Obama Girl” has had a change of heart.The model and actress told The Daily Caller that she is “not as excited as I was the last time, that’s for sure.” Despite the whirlwind of attention she got for professing her “love” for Obama, Ettinger won’t say if she still supports the president. “At this point I’m keeping that to myself,” she told The Daily Caller. “If I’m not making videos, I’m not sure it’s anyone’s business who I’m voting for this time around.”
Ettinger thinks the next few months are going to be very interesting. “I’d like to get out there and see what the young voters think about both candidates… I might need to break out my flip cam and take a road trip.” In other words, expect to see more videos from Ettinger this election season as well. She just may not call herself “Obama Girl” anymore.
So has Ettinger lost faith in Obama? Or has she switched over to the Romney camp? The mystery remains. Until then, here’s the classic video she made four years ago.
