Gotye parody video hits Obama

CNN's Alina Cho talks with the creators of a new viral video slamming President Obama to the tune of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know."

    I think that this video is an overwhelmingly focused emotional response to the out come of the results of President Obama's presidency. However, in every struggle, in every worthwhile effort to overcome bad policies and circumstances, there will be setbacks and disappointments. But those are not reasons to give up, moan, groan or even get cynical. Every kind of obstacle possible was thrown in his way as it was declared by the Republican leader of the Senate;":My number one goal is to make Obama a one term president." Don't turn your powder on the leader, turn it on the enemies of truth, justice and the real American Way. This apathetic video is the kind of result that Mitch Mcconnel is hoping for more of to achieve his fantasized goal of unseating Barak Obama

    I cannot imagine giving these fellows airtime, which is all they wanted for their bogus "production company". They "claim" they supported President Obama but did not vote in the election with a stupid reason like "we were in college and were non-residents", I guess they have never heard of absentee ballots. Now they want to say it was about Quantanamo and the lack of closing it as promised, PLEASE. Maybe if he closed it and sent the prisnors to their homes to be housed or sent them back to their countries to kill more of our soldiers. These "fake Americans" should be ignored in life and business.

    I know both of these people personally and for a long time. They have always had a reputation at Harvard as being highly conservative and pro-GOP.

    It's funny to hear them lie so boldly like this. They never supported Obama. They never had "hope" in his policies.

    As a matter of fact, Mr. Newbrough has long been a staunch supporter of the GOP. He campaigned for Bush and Schwarzenegger in California. He worked in Arnold Schwarzenegger's office at the end of his term. He campaigned for McCain in '08 and has always supported the RNC. As a matter of fact, I clearly remember a conversation I had with Mr. Newbrough the night of Obama's election where he told me that it was "the worst decision" the voters could have made.

    Both of these young men have ties to campaigns for past and current Republican candidates. This video is nothing but a shallow ploy to at making viewers think that Obama's youthful voters have somehow become disheartened with his presidency. It's a lie.

    Also, as the interviewer pointed out, for a first time production, it's quite good. This is especially true considering neither have touched a camera in their lives...

    I think Cho completely missed the point of the video. It was a parody, a satire! Heaven forbid that somebody humorously bemoan a president who has completely failed to live up to his promises.

    And to ask them what they would have done differently with regards to closing Guantanamo, smiling with hollow hubris as if she is saying to herself, “Alino, this will finally get CNN the ratings it deserves.”
