Obama’s Make-Believe ‘Girlfriend’

Posted by on May 02, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I guess since reporters are actually reading Obama’s book following the dog-eating revelations, other “facts” are now emerging on our still-mysterious president.

One of the more mysterious characters from President Obama’s 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father is the so-called ‘New York girlfriend.’ Obama never referred to her by name, or even by psuedonym, but he describes her appearance, her voice, and her mannerisms in specific detail.

But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the ‘New York girlfriend’ was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago.

“During an interview in the Oval Office, Obama acknowledged that, while Genevieve was his New York girlfriend, the description in his memoir was a “compression” of girlfriends, including one who followed Genevieve [Cook] when he lived in Chicago,” Maraniss writes in his new biography, an excerpt of which was published online today by Vanity Fair.

Though Dreams From My Father is an autobiography, and hence non-fiction, Obama makes no mention of this “compression,” nor is their any note by the publisher, Broadway Books. In fact, Obama only acknowledged the “compression” after Maraniss learned that Cook had no recollection of some of the events at which Obama said she was present.

Funny, but nobody still has any idea who these so-called “multiple girlfriends” are, nor does the media have the slightest interest. Why is that? Did Bill Ayers suggest this composite character?

OK, we can get back to Mitt Romney’s dog now.

    So……The dog eating was real but the girlfriends were not? Or they were compressed? Like spam?

    here’s some advice champ: next time, eat the spam, date a real girl and let the dog go.

    Go read the intro to the book. You’re a fucking idiot.

    Aww, what’s wrong? The President of the “reality based community’ is making crap and people up and you’re not happy he’s being called on it? And that it’s not even being noticed until now? Who in hell “compresses” crap in a non-fiction book? Besides the dear leader that is?

    And when do we get to see his transcripts? All this from an SOB that got his start in the living room of a terrorist and his first victory by opening up divorce records. And whose home is built on land provided by a guy now sitting in jail.

    Composite girlfriend, eh?

    With Obama being so “Green” and all you would think he would have gone with 100% natural rubber.

    There never were any girlfriends. If there had been, those gals would be millionaire celebrities today from their book sales and TV appearances.

    The Chicago machine did not just sit back and wonder what this author was up to. This is an Axelrod production.

    Why? Cynical minds would say that some vetting has been done and the dirt will be dished. While having to admit that DumBHO’s “autoboiography” is more fantasy than non-fiction, having multiple girl friends is the narrative they need to create to counter the tales to be told by other acquaintances.

    It seems quite strange that the author relies heavily upon passages from a 30 year old diary as some sort of proof of events and relationships but cannot manage to find real people who can provide contemporary evidence that the “new” narrative is any more plausible than Bill Ayer’s magnus opus.
