Obama Autobiography Revealed to Be Mostly Fictitious
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 4 May 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 05/05/2012 1:27:13 AM PDT by John Semmens

President Obama's putative autobiography—Dreams from My Father—is apparently mostly “made up stuff.” Nonexistent characters and imaginary events comprise the bulk of the content. The only verified content seems to be that the President was alive during the years depicted and that he must, therefore, have had a father—even though precisely who that might have been hasn't been confirmed.

Press Secretary Jay Carney rebuffed criticism that the President's book is a work of fiction. “Look, the title says it all,” Carney defensively asserted. “It's pretty tame compared to my dreams. It has no space aliens, no naked clowns, and no spankings. It could've been a lot more lurid. I think we ought to give the President credit for being a lot more modest liar than most of us would be under similar circumstances.”

In other circles, the autobiography's lack of connection to reality is being hailed as another sign of Obama's genius. “Most people would be hard pressed to write a factual account of their own lives,” declared MSNBC's Chris Matthews. “Yet, here we have a man that was able to create an alternate reality using only the power of his own mind. Reelecting him for another four year term would fall far short of what we ought to be doing. We ought to be begging him to stay on for life to rule over us like one of Plato's philosopher kings.”

I can only speak for myself but I already knew that.

Its amazing just how much of his life has been fabricated to be nothing more than a false front town of an abandoned wild west movie set.

And the Communist Party USA is very proud of itself for propping up this “nowhere man”.

“Its amazing just how much of his life has been fabricated to be nothing more than a false front town of an abandoned wild west movie set.”

And all the pundits claimed that those “Left Behind” novels were fiction, more like prediction.

His life is one pathetic satire that roped in half this nation. He cannot even defend his anti-America rants from a few years ago. Liberals are idiots. If any dirt eater actually voted for this thing, do me a favor, stay at home for all future elections.

Dreams from My Father, an outstanding success of propagandaic nonsense,designed to hoodwink a free nation, will soon me followed by the next underwhelming volume, of this sordid series, “ Wet Dreams from my Mother.”

We are ‘governed’ by whackos who destroy our nation.

The article is not satire.

"The only verified content seems to be that the President was alive during the years depicted and that he must, therefore, have had a father..."

I am not so sure about that. Obutthole might be some kind of alien life form. I think he probably got his start in a petri dish on board a space craft, or in the lab of some distant planet. His builders did a reasonable job of making him look human, but if you listen to him talk for 5 minutes you quickly realize there is nothing terrestrial about this strange life form.

Slight correction:

“Yet, here we have a man that was able to create an alternate reality using only the power of his own Bill Ayers' mind.

I won't make that mistake. I will simply issue an Executive Order expanding the size of the Court on my own authority as the duly elected ruler of this nation.

Mr. Semmens' prescience is on full sail display here; as this "semi-satire" is being entered into Mister Obama's teleprompters at this moment.

John, you have treated us to great-and-scary stuff this week, as usual.

Parting question.

Should Fox News (who tried unsuccessfully to do a half-hour satire/news comedy a few years back) consider reprising the idea, using the Semmens columns as initial ideas?
