Remember her?:

Yes, that's Amber Lee Ettinger, or as she's better known, Obama Girl. The epitome of Barack's following back in 2008: young, cool, and blindly worshipping the man, with no real understanding of his political roots or his policy ambitions. Obama was hip! He was hot! And she had a big ol' crush on him. So naturally, you'd think she'd be the first person in line at the polls this November to cast her vote for his reelection. Right?

Err...no. Awkward:

In an interview with the Daily Caller, Ettinger said she was “not as excited as I was the last time, that’s for sure.”

“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.”

How sad. Obama's Worst [Three] Week[s] Ever don't look to be improving, and really, this has to hurt: he's lost the adulation of even his most die-hard fan. Not only will she abstain from making Crush on Obama 2012 Edition, but she won't even say whether or not she'll vote for him!

He raised his party's expectations so high that what he's delivered has roundly disappointed its members. Heck, even jamming healthcare through Congress could backfire on him, if the Supreme Court overturns it later this month. And without a crew of devoted groupies to fluff up his public image, he's going to have a much harder time spinning his policy failures. As they say, the higher you climb, the farther you fall.
