Obama: 'New York girlfriend' was composite
Politico ^ | Wednesday May 2, 2012

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,

“Dreams of my girlfriend.” I wonder if she was 1/32 Indian?

“...a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends...”

Yeah, and Obama is a composite character based off of multiple socialists.

Second, did take Ms. Composite on a date to a drive in using Bill Clinton’s equally fake El Camino with astroturf in the back?

It’s no different from his speeches now. A composite of marxism and the more traditional notions you want to hear.

Actually, I would say that the girlfriend is a composite of Barry’s gay bathhouse buddies.

Just a bit of fictional transgendering there. And what’s wrong with that? It’s a hate crime if you object!

and if you are going to go to the trouble of creating a fake composite girlfriend, why isn’t she Marilyn Monroe and Tina Louise with a little dash of Marisa Tomei and a pinch of Bar Rafaeli thrown in for good measure?

In "Deconstructing Obama", Jack Cashill makes a pretty strong case that Barack's GF was actually Bill Ayers' love interest who blew herself up...

"The white woman in question presents a different set of problems. In terms of height, hair color, eye color, parentage, and highly specific place of origin—namely a large country estate with a lake in the middle—she is a dead ringer for Bill Ayers’s lost love, the late Weatherwoman, Diana Oughton."

My first thought.

His "composite" probably had alternate parts than the originals.

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.

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 ;-)

“That was not her,” he said. “That was an example of compression I was very sensitive in my book not to write about my girlfriends, partly out of respect for them. So that was a consideration. I thought that [the anecdote involving the reaction of a white girlfriend to the angry black play] was a useful theme to make about sort of the interactions that I had in the relationships with white girlfriends.

Why FR hasn't gotten behind Jack Cashill I will never understand. This entire fraud was well covered in Cashill's book, 'Deconstructing Obama'. Here:

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.

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.

Wait a minute. The author claims to have *interviewed* her.

******************************************************

“Becoming Obama
When Barack Obama met Genevieve Cook in 1983 at a Christmas party in New York’s 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 couple’s time together.”

This story smells on so many levels. It is either in advance damage control, anticipating the inevitable in-depth comparisons between the "girlfriend" in Dreams From My Father and Genevieve Cook.

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.

Why would he admit to this? Was he under pressure to reveal her identity? It’s strange that so much is coming out of his “biographies” now, like no one bothered to read them when he was running in 2008.

Seems like Obama used quite a few “compressions” and fake descriptions in his “Auto-Biography”.

Maybe Oprah should be outraged like she was when James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces was discovered to be well....factually not accurate....

All of his multiple girlfriends had in common modesty, reticence, very old-fashioned discretion, a dislike for public attention.

And then he met Michelle....

As I was posting my comment above I was listening on line to RL who simultaneously mentioned the piece. I've listened to Rush since 1988. He can be quite good and on point at times, but at other times you can hear him pull back obviously afraid to confront any 'conspiracy' issue lest he lose revenue.

He KNOWS Obama didn't write 'Dreams'. And he KNOWS Ayers did, but he he chooses to dance around the subject. The primary reason this marxist fraud was elected in 2008 was because of his book, 'Dreams', considered the greatest literary masterpiece EVER by a President. In 'Deconstructing Obama' Jack Cashill, Ph.D., clearly and definitively PROVES Bill Ayers wrote the book; Obama did not date women; and that the NY girlfriend 'compression' was in fact Diana Oughton, Ayer's marxist terrorist elitist Long Island girlfriend killed in a bomb-making accident.

Too bad Rush and every other so-called Conservative voice in America are nothing but Chicken-Sh*t RINO's!
