Obama ‘Sings’ Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe': VIDEO


Obama is now part of the latest pop song meme to sweep the web.

According to Gawker, "Nineteen-year-old Fadi Saleh, who goes by 'Barackdubs' on YouTube, partnered with MTV Act to create this masterful dub."


On a more serious note, Obama and Clinton campaigned in New York last night. Political Ticker reports:

Saying he was more determined than he was in his 2008 presidential run, Obama faulted his Republican rivals for their economic policies, saying the party is too eager to throw "sand in the gears" in Congress and would "take us back to the exact same policies that got us into this mess in the first place."

Clinton's remarks earlier in the evening shared those sentiments. Speaking on the same stage, Clinton blasted Mitt Romney for pushing policies that favor large spending cuts over tax increases, saying the presumptive GOP nominee's plan harkens back to policies from President George W. Bush's administration - "except on steroids."

At a different fundraising event earlier in the night, Clinton took his comments further, saying a win for the Republican in November would be "calamitous for our country and the world."
