'Obama Girl' No Longer Has a Crush on the President

The woman who became famous for her "I Got A Crush...on Obama" video in 2007 has like so many in our nation lost that loving feeling for the President.

"In my opinion, I feel like he should be focusing a lot more on jobs and the economy," Amber Lee Ettinger told the New York Post. 

"He did create some jobs, but most of them were government jobs and that doesn't really help the middle class," she added.

Given the media's fascination with "Obama Girl" when she first appeared on the scene, it's going to be interesting to see how they report her change of heart (h/t JammieWearingFool via Instapundit):

Amber Lee Ettinger -- the buxom sensation who lip-synched about her love for then-candidate Barack Obama -- said she wishes he spent his first year in office more focused on fixing the abysmal economy.

"I think he's doing an OK job," said Ettinger, whose original "Crush on Obama" video, first shown in 2007, has had more than 16.5 million views on YouTube. [...]

Her grade for Obama: B- minus. 

B-minus. That's not very crush-worthy, is it?

But will media that were just as in love with Obama as Amber care what her opinion is now?

Consider that "Obama Girl" receives 538 million results in a Google search. "I Got a Crush on Obama" gets almost 4 million.

With this in mind, will her change of heart be as interesting to the media as her adoration was?

Stay tuned.
