Obama? Just the Forgettable 1980s Boyfriend of a Landlordís Tenant (College beard story falls apart)
NY Times ^ | 5/7/12 | JAMES BARRON

Posted on 05/08/2012 5:38:31 PM PDT by jimbo123

As a recent college graduate holding down his first job in the 1980s, Barack Obama did not make much of an impression on someone who knew the ways of the world: His girlfriend’s landlord.

“I can honestly say that I do not remember him,” said Ralph Allen, who owned the brownstone in Park Slope, Brooklyn, where Mr. Obama’s girlfriend at the time, Genevieve Cook, rented the top-floor apartment — an apartment Mr. Obama shared with her in late 1984. “Maybe we met while I was sitting out on the stoop one night. Who knows.”

Obviously, the guy is "Racist"....

LOL

He wasn't into Community Organizing and cocaine, so he wouldn't be running in the same crowds as "The One"....

There must be something very forgettable about Obama. No one remembers him. No one. Except for a few of his terrorist friends, who aren’t talking.

"If Mr. Obama was on hand — and if he had an inkling of the significance that date would play in his life — Mr. Allen has forgotten, just as he has no idea whether Mr. Obama’s route to or from his runs in Prospect Park took him along another nearby block, President Street."

This is what New York Times is selling as in depth reporting to prove they are going to 'seriously' vet Obama this time around. Let's not forget that this the media that knew every single contact in Tiger Woods' cell phone within 12 hours of his domestic melt down.

Mr. Allen remembers the tenant clearly, but not an African-American moving into his house?

This was not a typical apartment, you had to walk through the downstairs living quarters to get to it.

The section on Obama’s “religion” (Black Liberation Theology) is pretty far off base. BLT is Communist.

Interesting passage here, regarding Obama’s supposed girlfriend:

“Biography: Genevieve Hogan Cook was born in Canberra Australia, the daughter of Michael J. Cook who was a diplomat and whose official travels frequently brought him to the USA. One of his posts was as the Ambassador to Vietnam.”

Correct. Guy in post #10 IS Sohale Siddiqi (also known as Hal Siddiqi). Obama met him in Calif when Hal visited the Chandoo brothers, and later contacted him when Obama moved to NY to go to Columbia. They roomed together.

Recall, this is the time when he and Ayers were attending college within 4 or 5 blocks of each other. Ayers at Bank Street College, Obama at Columbia College, an Undergrad part of Columbia University. Maybe Ayers turned him on to the gay thing? Not serious, but then again...

From the New York Times, September 11, 2001:

"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."

Or that they poked through Sarah Palin’s trash, moved next door to her, paid off everyone who ever knew her or her children, etc. Jokes based on MERE RUMORS about Sarah were in every late night comedian’s monologues NIGHTLY.

If they were fair, there would be limo Gay sex and coke jokes about Obama nightly.

Bio - "Genevieve Hogan Cook"

Many interesting family connections and deconstruction of photos (and the whole "girlfriend" story) here---especially see posts after 200:

Meet the First Obama Girlfriend

~~~~~~~~~~~`

PS: For more on photo in post 10, more on Siddiqi, and more on Chandoo brothers, see here for links.

BTW: Chandoo brothers were both Obama campaign bundlers. He also stayed with them on his mysterious, college Pakistan trip (and perhaps trip was paid for by one or both).

I assume they moved in close for the pic. But THAT friggin close?

Based on another Obama-male friend relationship, it certainly does at least make one pause to think something 'funny' might be going on:

“The second time I went out to California to attend Mohammad Hassan Chandoo’s graduation from Occidental College, Obama was enjoying the lavish lifestyle being financed by his friend and roommate at the time - Hassan Chandoo. The wealthy patron provided Obama access to big houses, lavish parties & had him dressed in the slickest clothes. I could have sworn they were both Gay & wealthy.”

The Sarah Palin example is an even better one. That reminded me of the story they broke during the primaries about Rick Santorum's wife once living with a pro choice professor during her college years. I have that feeling that didn't come from opposition research.

I only hope the Romney campaign is as brutal on Obama with so much stuff to "share" with the public. I also hope this election is as much a referendum on the media as Obama.

No one remembers him. No one.

I don't think the CIA, or aspects of it, work for America, but rather for the Old Money Families whose agenda is to take out the Constitution and replace it with global fascism lite - or heavy - it remains to be seen. And the guy running against him works for the same folks, but willingly, not as a puppet. /tinfoil>

Drew says that Obama was in complete 100% agreement with his Marxist college professors who wanted a revolution in this country to overturn the power structure. He was consumed with the notion of wealth redistribution & more affirmative action programs to bring about less inequality and more income equality. He espoused the John Rawls Theory of Justice and his ‘veil of ignorance theory.

This "veil" is one that essentially blinds people to all facts about themselves that might cloud what notion of justice is developed.

"No one knows his place in society, his class position or social status, nor does anyone know his fortune in the distribution of natural assets and abilities, his intelligence, strength, and the like. I shall even assume that the parties do not know their conceptions of the good or their special psychological propensities. The principles of justice are chosen behind a veil of ignorance."

This helps explain why it's difficult to understand where Obama's coming from... The 'veil of ignorance' theory's kind of interesting...

Curious this should be in the NYT.

The landlord remembers the tenant clearly, but not that she was later shacking up with her black boyfriend in his building?

I would think that might be something you’d remember.
