Skip to comments.Barack Obama's missing year
Posted on 04/07/2011 6:18:18 AM PDT by RobinMasters
In his definitive 2010 biography of Barack Obama, "The Bridge," New Yorker editor David Remnick features a photograph of a dapper young Barack Obama sitting between his grandparents on a Central Park bench.
The bench is real. The grandparents are real. The wall behind them is real. Barack Obama is not. He has been conspicuously photoshopped in. Who did this and why remains as much a mystery as Obama's extended stay in New York.
In late October 2007, the New York Times ran a telling article on Barack Obama headlined, "Obama's Account of New York Years Often Differs From What Others Say."
Given that he was an announced candidate for president, and an underdog at that, the Times expected Obama to welcome the chance to reconcile his account in his memoir, "Dreams from My Father," with the accounts of those who knew him.
"Yet," lamented the newly neutered Times, "he declined repeated requests to talk about his New York years, release his Columbia transcript or identify even a single fellow student, co-worker, roommate or friend from those years."
A campaign spokesman, Ben LaBolt, offered a painfully lame explanation for Obama's reticence, "He doesn't remember the names of a lot of people in his life."

obama is photoshopped in a LOT of the photos released, from elementary and high school and college
of course it is an amateurish job, since some of us amateurs can see it
It does a raise a HUGE question of who orchestrated and controlled and continues to control all this, and how, and why
No, Obama is real, the Grandparents were photoshopped in. There is another photo of Obama in Central Park the same day, and the errors in the photo are with the Grandparents.
Some say he was "created" by the CIA.
the photoshops are too amateur for this, imho
O might have been born here but there is something else he is trying to hide. How the hell did someone with so many ?’s in his background get elected?!?
How did the American public fall for it?!?
O’s rise to power is so scary. If anyone can bring him down the Donald can. How can anyone feel good about O facing off against Mitt, Huck, or Bachmann? He AND the media would destroy them.
My daughter is going to be attending a summer class at Stanford at which they will be using Photoshop. Neither she nor I know much about it. If I understand it correctly there are many different versions of Photoshop, some extremely complex. What should she know before attending?? If I bought some version for her now, which one??
What about B. Hussein Soetero’s missing presidency?
Why does the “original” photo of just his grandparents still have his knee in it? WND is not helping.

I don’t know how to do it, but I do know an amateur job when I see it
Have her do some homework and pull up all the obama past life photos she can find on the internet
Some that come to mind-
his basketball team shot at Punahou, his Harvard Law group photo, his “Columbia” picture with Granny and Gramps in NYC, almost any photo of his elementary school years
Her professor might want to take a look at Barry’s head size and shape in current and past photos, maybe also figure out when his zig zag scar appeared on the side of his head
The more your daughter knows going into the course the more she will learn when she’s there. It’s money well spent, IMO.
Check out the local library or check with friends if you don’t want to buy a copy now.
I find that video unconvincing. I’m not an expert, but to me the picture without Obama is the one that looks wrong: repeated patterns in the wall and tree behind it, missing leg of the bench, etc.
I believe Obama worked for New York PIRG. This is a Ralph Nader inspired student funnded and (fictitiously) student run political action group. The professional staff, like Obama, were radically left wing. Many today are powerful in the democrat party.
I never see this discussed or investigated. His time there and people he knew would be revealing.
Of course, he would not remember the names. The man is so self-centered that I doubt he ever heard their names when being introduced to them.
