Some college grads feel like scorned lovers of President Barack Obama and now they’ve scored a sensational YouTube hit with a parody of Goyte’s ‘somebody That I Used to Know.”According to Fox News, “the video, which was tracking over 400,000 hits Friday morning, faithfully covers the original, only under the title, ‘Obama, That I used to now.’”
The song begins with, “now and then I think of that Election Day November. When you won, I felt so happy I could die. You can get addicted to a certain kind of message – like this is change we can believe in, yes we can. But college ended had to pay my rent. At least you’re the first gay president. But the change I got is that I moved in with my mother.”
As reported by Fox News, “and the chorus: ‘Because you won and then you cut me off. Now your speeches never soar as high as unemployment. You took ObamaCare so far, but you left me like a dog strapped on Romney’s car.’”
Justin Monticello and Ryan Newbrough co-created the YouTube hit and supported Obama in 2008, but they feel disillusionment that some in their generation are experiencing.
