The thrill is gone for Obama girl

Ethel C. Fenig
Remember Obama Girl, the young lady who fell in love with Obama's image; his good looks, his soaring rhetoric, his pecs as she oh so publicly proclaimed her devotion in one of YouTube's most downloaded videos?

Ah well, when young love is based on such superficialities how quickly disillusionment sets in when reality strikes. And so a mere two years after youtubing her love, the now slightly more mature, more clothed Obama Girl doesn't heart her lover any longer she tells the New York Post.:
In my opinion, I feel like he should be focusing a lot more on jobs and the 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 publicity and maybe hard won truth but darling, breaking up is hard to do and youthful indiscretions will live on for three more years until the next election with who knows what fall out. 

By then hopefully you'll be so much wiser and able to better counsel your numerous replacements about the consequences of advertising and acting on your feelings alone without thinking. Not that they'll listen to you of course--the young never do.
