‘Obama Girl’ is ‘not as excited’ about 2012, won’t endorse Obama
Daily Caller ^ | 6-10-12 | Zach Gorelick

Posted on 06/10/2012 10:27:13 PM PDT by GR_Jr.

Amber Lee Ettinger, widely known as “Obama Girl” during the 2008 presidential campaign, told The Daily Caller she is “not as excited as I was the last time, that’s for sure.”

The model-actress became a nationally known celebrity after starring in the viral YouTube video “Crush on Obama.”

“Barack Obama was definitely the first ‘Internet President,’” she said, describing her experiences during the last cycle as “quite a roller coaster ride.”

This time, however, Ettinger won’t say if she still supports Obama.

“At this point I’m keeping that to myself,” she told TheDC. “If I’m not making videos, I’m not sure it’s anyone’s business who I’m voting for this time around.”

“I think in the next few months it’s going to be very interesting to see what happens,” Ettinger said. ”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.”

Outside of the realm of politics, the one-time “Obama girl” is ”going back to school full time, acting and developing [her] jewelry line.”

Combating rumors that she didn’t vote in the 2008 election, Ettinger told TheDC that she did indeed vote, in Pennsylvania.

I recall that in 2008 someone asked her how she’d voted (primary and/or general election) and she said it was none of their business.

She can now expect the IRS audit, “you are dead to me,” and MSM investigations.

Model-actress-jewelry designer.

Sounds like she’s a professional attention whore to boost her own visibility.

If Obama is unemployed, she may finally be able to find a job.

This is more damaging to O than anything he says on TV. SerieZly. If the hot chick is un-amoured with him then he loses votes because dudes can’t use the “yea Obama is my hero” thing as a pickup line.

Yes, libs really are that stupid.

By withholding her support she is attracting media attention. Otherwise we would not be reading about her.

But, she will vote for Obama, along with her friends:

I think it was in the primary election that she did not get around to voting for him. That is what this link says:

but it is from the NYTimes so who know if it is completely made up out of thin air or not.

All she had to do was help him and he was gonna help her.

At least that was part of the idiocy of the 2008 election.

She’s probably not happy. Hopefully she’ll not vote this time.

Some PAC should run an ad target at them...

“Obama had both houses of Congress and the power of the Executive order...yet he did not keep his promises to you. Now he loss that power and CAN’T keep those promises to you. Don’t you DESERVE better?”

Then laugh as the infighting for the remainder of the stash begins.

Great idea.

They’re not happy campers and I think a lot of them will not bother to vote.

The beauty of it is that it’s not ‘us’ doing the dirty.’ It’s Obama and co.’s own words. Just throw them back at the lib crowd and proof of his failure and drill home the “Don’t you DESERVE better? question. Over and over and over.

Play to their greed. It’s not lying. It’s the truth. They DO DESERVE to not be lied to by a snake oil salesman. they DO deserve better. ;)

What are the lib media gonna say? That they don’t? HA!!!

She was laid off, her house is in foreclosure and her car was repo'd. Heh.

That was my initial reaction too.. but at least her pursuits aren`t leeching the public coffers.

“If I’m not making videos, I’m not sure it’s anyone’s business who I’m voting for this time around.”

Translation: “If I’m not getting paid like last time,I ain’t saying nothing.”
