Obama That I Used to Know: Gotye Parody Takes President to Task

by at . Comments

Nicely played, Internet. While Gotye’s hit song “Somebody That I Used to Know” is now massively overplayed, this parody devoted to a young voter's waning enthusiasm with President Barack Obama is worth checking out.

Like many, he longs for the "Obama That I Used to Know" ...

It's a fairly predictable effort, as Obama fatigue has set in even among many of his biggest fans, but the video has its impressive lyrical moments.

The painting of the singers, a la Gotye's video, into the signature Obama “Hope” portrait from 2008 is also a nice touch ... and surprisingly detailed.

Compared to today's political landscape, 2008 feels like an eternity ago. Oh, Barack. We could have been so much more than friends with healthcare benefits.

Obama in 2012?

If only he had kept his promise to CREATE NEW JOBS which he made in a campaign speech in Flint, MI in 2007, I'd feel differently. Also if he hadn't claimed "Executive Priviledge" and hid things, instead of being the Transparent President he told us he'd be. What a shame!

OMG! Don't tell me I FINALLY have Troll Freaks enamored with me? Possibly wishing they could be....just like me?!? Yeah, lil' ole me? Now I feel really special! Ha! Or is that I intimidate and pose a threat in ways I knew nothing about! Hmm? Well, some times I guess we simply don't know our own strength! Suddenly I feel strangely empowered by it all. Yes. And I must say it's a rather heady feeling! One thing I've gotta be quite firm about and that is....I am soooooooo very for Mitt Romney and will not change my political stance! Romney 2012! Romney 2012! Romney 2012! Time to jump the 'Bama ship, Trollies...there's nothing worth saving! Hurry before the last lifeboat is hoisted over the side of the sinking ship!!

Obamaloney. Great word. Fits this, lying, race baiting, throwing taxpayer's money away, poor excuse for a President, to a T.

Some people hide in the lurches so long they don't even use a "user" anymore and they expect someone to know who "ME" is. how do you expect to carry on even the weakest of debates under----- anonymous? Of course it wasn't you, you were just passing thru?

You can copy all the user names you want! It's because you are a weak bitch! Eyes like lightning is Romney all the way and you are nothing every day.
