The creator of the mash-up, baracksdubs , took video clips from WhiteHouse.gov to make Mr. Obama sing Lady Gaga's hit Born This Way.
The video starts off with the President speaking at a Human Rights Campaign conference where he mentions he had talks the previous week with HRC "leader" Lady Gaga.
Then the song begins. Individual words are used from the speeches to create the song's words.

Overall, it's a pretty good effort. If this were a real song, the President would do well on karaoke night at a pub. Maybe next time he could attempt Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.
