When she showed -- support and her excitement for the president's promises of hope hope and change.
But like millions of other Americans she says she's no longer smitten over the more anointed one and she has -- -- you may not vote for him in November joining me now to explain the Obama Girl herself family adventure is.
I'm good son Dario I'm good welcome back it's good to see get magic if I hear your career good things are going to tell me everything is go well yes I'm.
It's going great I love California had a shot -- sounds I'm really excited about being here and just moving forward I what I wonder what happened to this girl that was smitten in love and I have a crush on Obama.
Well I think I can never be as excited as I was four years ago I mean I was singing and I was dancing about him on rooftops and on subways I mean -- I can't keep that excitement going are you excited about something you are excited about four years ago it's kind of hard.
Well as they -- I mean.
What -- for example is this directly related.
To the fact that he hasn't really done a good job I mean look.
I think I kind of predicted it I don't believe I didn't believe his policies I think get caught up in the hype do you think maybe he got caught up another.
Hype of the moment and.
I think everyone was really excited meeting one of them I feel like my video kind of encompass -- what a lot of Americans are feeling that excitement for hope and change like you said.
I'm -- it was most exciting just -- Make this one video I -- I made like thirty but this one in particular that got everyone excited we got such great feedback and it got young people out there voting.
I did it -- comedy at first sight yeah I was paid to to do is video I didn't lose an acting job but -- -- or something so much more down and it was gratifying for me.
I got to learn a lot but people got excited maybe our hopes for a little unrealistic elusive and -- you last time.
Yeah there was some analysts said that ought to have to worry about paying my mortgage I don't have to worry about putting gas in my car I mean that's how I called Obama mania that's how caught up they work.
Let me let me throw -- -- seven -- ten had.

We have five trillion dollars in new debt.
That your generation.
Kids in this kind to -- paying their entire lifetime new Obama debt.
We have 26.
Million Americans on an underemployed.
47 million Americans on food stamps 63 million Americans now the receive a check from the federal government one shape matter -- form.
Massive increases under Obama he promised to fix this do you admit that -- fail.
I I know that he promised.
I don't believe that one person can get into office and change and be a miracle worker I just don't I think whoever gets the net you know becomes president next.
I didn't really gonna change everything I mean I don't I don't believe it I feel like that congress and the senate have a lot to do with -- I don't really want to get into the specifics of what the -- I think we're.
Good and what we're bad.
But I mean.
But he made it.
Promise he said in that in 2008 worst economies and as an entire residence police are but they have a deficit in half and then we have five trillion -- -- Obama that.
But easily made these promises that and obviously you got pretty excited about it.
I don't know to crush her career early on what's -- of the.
I wasn't the only ones it's not -- It's not odd that I'm undecided right now it's not odd that I wanna wait in the watched the debates and see what happens and you know before I make my decision but I definitely don't want people to put words in my mouth I haven't said I'm not -- -- and I haven't that I am I am so yeah I'm waiting and I'm going to see.
From what I'm waiting -- you to make your endorsement right here -- you did come out with a new video for 2012 and I think it's important that we play -- apparently it's to the grease song you're the one that I want -- -- And then -- You need.
So basically tell the president's time to step up they have to three and and here's a little late this step up.
It's never too late people always need positive reinforcement.
