Skip to comments.Why it matters that Obama dated a composite and ate a dog

There was a brief media firestorm yesterday when Vanity Fair broke the news that Obamas famous New York girlfriend was a fiction. She appears in his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father, described in some detail by her appearance, voice and mannerisms. But a new biography of Obama with an excerpt published in Vanity Fair reveals that she was actually an amalgam of several different women. Politico immediately ran with Obama: 'New York girlfriend' was composite and Drudge headlined with Obama Admits Fabricating Girlfriend in a Memoir. Coming hot on the heels of the news that the Pres once ate a dog, his weirdo factor seems to have hit the roof.
Actually, it turns out that Obama always said that his New York squeeze was a fake. Within a couple of hours of the story breaking, journalists pointed out that at the beginning of Dreams From My Father it reads, For the sake of compression, some of the characters that appear are composites of people, Ive known, and some events appear out of precise chronology. Politico was forced to print a humiliating correction and David Graham of The Atlantic went in for the kill: Politico has served as an unwitting pawn in a game conservative spinmeisters are playing to redefine Obama between now and November
It's much the same as the flap over Obama eating dog, in which a different piece of Dreams From My Father, in which he describes eating canine meat as a boy in Indonesia, was rediscovered. While conservative activists and journalists present these stories while claiming that Obama wasn't properly vetted four years ago, what's actually happening is they're reintroducing facts to the record, this time with a far more negative spin.

The foreign press ... again pointing out how pathetic the American MSM has become
In Dreams OF My Father, zer0 didn't eat A dog, as in one (1) dog. He ate a COMPOSITE dog... that one (1) dog could be hundreds of dogs, for the sake of literary discretion, he combined into one.
Obama is “OTHER” than American.
This is precisely why the constitution has the requirement for “natural born citizen”.
That one looks just as real as the one the NYT put out.
Standard Alinsky tactic: accuse your opponents of what you yourself are doing.
Redefining The Kenyan as a heterosexual, as a war leader, and a caring spousal unit.
Oh if only I could create a real composite of loves past and present, I’d have one incredibly perfect man.
[or I could just make a ‘composite’ sock puppet and talk to that]
Ok, I don’t care who you are. those dudes in that picture are queer as the day is long. Is that really Obama?
Pretty hard to REdefine a person who was never DEfined in the first place.
The vetting should have started in 2005 at the latest. It was obvious by his star billing at the 2004 Democrat convention and his election to the US Senate in November 2004, that Obama would be foisted on us as a future Democrat presidential nominee.
Yup, other then WSJ and Washington Times I rarely read the American press any longer, nothing but Marxist/socialist propaganda.
Where is the composite Larry Sinclair type?
Barry is a Composite American
>> Oh if only I could create a real composite of loves past and present, Id have one incredibly perfect man.
Yeah, but what about the OTHER nine Frank N. Steins built from the leftover flawed components? I guess you’d just unleash those on society, hmmm? :-)
So, now he eats composites and married a dog.............
