LA's "dancing fool" is at it again. With his signature dance moves and penchant for cutting a rug in the middle of traffic, Nathan Barnatt took to the streets of LA for another video, released Tuesday. Only this time, he's in an Obama mask and wearing a suit and tie.

He's also got something to say: "I'm Barack Obama, and I party."

The video is set to RAC's remix of the song "Something Good Can Work" by Two Door Cinema Club. Barnatt describes the dance as a "mild political statement," urging Obama supporters to have a little more patience with the President.

"I hear people complaining about how Obama hasn't done anything since he was elected," wrote Barnatt in an email to The Huffington Post. "I think it takes some time to fix big problems."

"In my opinion Obama is something good and can work," Barnatt continued. "He is in my opinion and lifetime the coolest president we've had."

Of course, Obama might be too cool for his own good nowadays. An attack ad released by a Republican super PAC last April mocked the President for rubbing elbows with Hollywood stars. "Four years ago, America elected the biggest celebrity in the world, and America got one cool president,” the video says. “But after four years of a celebrity president, is your life any better?”

Barnatt, an actor and comedian, has a following of 146,041 subscribers on YouTube. In a previous interview with HuffPost, he described how YouTube gave him an opportunity to practice his craft without waiting for a studio to come around:

"Forget about auditioning for pilots,' said seasoned UCB comedy vet Ian Roberts to Barnatt. "Make your own."

Barnatt echoed that same advice now, urging young actors to make their own opportunities. "The chances of getting into something are so slim, you should create your own thing and focus on it really well. Don't sit around and wait for other people to do those things."
