Skip to comments.Obama: 'New York girlfriend' was composite
Posted on 05/02/2012 10:05:45 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
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.
None of this happened with Genevieve. She remembered going to the theater only once with Barack, and it was not to see a work by a black playwright. When asked about this decades later, during a White House interview, Obama acknowledged that the scene did not happen with Genevieve. It is an incident that happened, he said. But not with her. He would not be more specific,

Just astounding. A fabrication. Who would have ever guessed???
Everything about hussein soetero is a fabricated lie.
Facts are irrelevant, truth is relative. It’s more important to express his feelings rather than build a case on reality. He lives in a world where all that matters is him. Delusional psychopath comes to mind. And I believe he knows it. And it won’t stop him from getting what he wants. This man is mentally ill.
Hehe...I was going to type, "Yea, I bet his 'girlfriend' had a 'richard'." Checking to see if someone beat me to it and, sure enough!
As I said on another thread with this topic....perhaps Obammys use of the word “composite” was to indicate it was an Inflatable girl/boyfriend ;-)
Page 184: "Obama spent thirteen not-so-swinging single years on the mainland before he married Michelle in 1992, and ten of those years were before he EVEN met her! ...despite scores of interviews with Obama acquaintances, never do we actually hear from a woman who dated Barack Obama."
The ACTUAL NY woman referred to by (Ayers) in Dreams was his own LOST LOVE, Diana Oughton. It was a complete fraud just like the authorship of the book.
A composite just like his birth certificate.
a good composite would be carbon fiber and high strength expoxy.
My composite girlfriend is Giada De Laurentiis and Selma Hayek.
He just does what he always does...he redistributed traits from the others into the one...
You both are probably right.
Why the media won’t give Larry Sinclair his due when every woman who has gotten within 5 miles of any Republican candidate has been given an intense TSA frisk, I will never know.
The media is personally responsible for the demise and destruction of America.
I hadn't heard that blow-up dolls showed emotions or were seated in theaters....................
Wait a minute. The author claims to have *interviewed* her.
When Barack Obama met Genevieve Cook in 1983 at a Christmas party in New Yorks East Village, it was the start of his most serious romance yet. But as the 22-year-old Columbia grad began to shape his future, he was also struggling with his identity: American or international? Black or white? Drawing on conversations with both Cook and the president, David Maraniss, in an adaptation from his new Obama biography, has the untold story of the couples time together.”
I wonder if her name was Lola?
Oops, I mean his left hand.*
* Snarky multiculturalist reference there, sorry...
Politico is an arm of Obama's reelection campaign.
David Maraniss is an in-the-tank Democrat sycophant.
What are the chances his two and only two girlfriends kept journals or diaries of their relationship with Obama, never lost them or threw them out over the last 30 years, and never thought to promote themselves or write their own book? Even during such an historic campaign as 2008! But suddenly, were eager to share them during his reelection?
My guess is Genevieve Cook and Alex McNear are Democrat operatives, these journals were probably written by Bill Ayers, and the idea for this "biography" of Obama by Maraniss was concocted by David Axlerod.
