You’ve Got Me, Babe
“Well, the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me,” was President Obama’s response to possible problems in the upcoming midterm elections, according to Rep. Marion Berry. The Arkansas Democrat was recalling Obama’s remarks in an election strategy meeting to Jane Fullerton of the Arkansas-Democrat Gazette.
Obama’s “you’ve got me” is reminiscent of the song “I Got You Babe.”
Sung by Sonny and Cher as a duet during their 1970s television program “The Sonny and Cher Show,” the lyrics of “I Got You Babe” declared that nothing else mattered since the unlikely couple had each other. Ironically, Sonny and Cher continued to sing the duet after they divorced in 1975.
