Skip to comments.Author David Maraniss Distraught Conservatives Using Book to Debunk Obama
Posted on 06/21/2012 10:18:22 PM PDT by Nachum
Liberal historian and Barack Obama biographer David Maraniss is almost beside himself that people everywhere are talking about his new book Barack Obama: The Story.
While most authors would be overjoyed at the amount of free publicity that Maraniss is receiving, the veteran author is almost distraught that conservatives are talking about the book in a way he didn't intend--to debunk many of the lies and half-truths that President Obama told about his young adulthood in his autobiography, Dreams From My Father.
As conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh noted during his radio program on Wednesday, Maraniss is in crisis because the right wing is using his book to point out all the things in Obama's autobiography which are not true.
Limbaugh stated that Maraniss is vetting Obama and doesn't realize it by documenting lies and falsehoods, and as far he's concerned, all he's doing is getting the record straight by poking holes in information from the president's book, "Dreams From My Father."

First he outs the scum and then he pouts because we have taken him seriously. What the hell did he expect?
Barack Hussein Obama is a fictional character created by Bill Ayers who is the real author of “Dreams From My Father”. Owebama has no credible history.
What we do know is that he is a radical socialist statist who is hell bent on destroying the US middle class as quickly as he can. Where he came from, who knows?
Dreams Of My Father... a fiction. All of it. Here’s something I think is MUCH closer to who Barack Obama is and I’m willing to bet it’s much closer than that fiction Zero wrote about himself...
“Another freeper already suggested that this crime be called “resisting retribution.” “
You beat me to it.
A woman writer claims to have met Ayers in a Chicago Airport Starbucks, where he told her that he was the real author of Dreams.
I have read other articles that claim that Obozo has never been capable of writing much of anything, other then lies.
...as the man who revealed Obambi as a complete lying fake.
Sorry for the wrong cut and paste quotation... should be:
“Bill Ayers who is the real author of Dreams From My Father”
Another liberal who’s outraged to learn that actions have consequences.
The man is a living punchline...... you can't make this stuff up.
Things just seem to go from bad to worse for Prez dude here lately.
Conservatives don’t debunk Obama.
Obama’s lies, half truths, subterfuge and delusions debunk Obama.
Bill Ayers can get on a plane? Damn.
Maraniss is no historian. Real historians always check facts before they write, and double check them if there is even a hint of doubt.
He is the kind of writer who tries to walk down the middle of an issue, much like the guy who walks down the middle of the road, only to be hit by cars coming from both sides.
This isn’t the only time that “historians” have inadvertently given truthseekers new “truths” which they had not recognized. Both Hunt and Nicosia, in their books about John Kerry and Vietnam Veterans Against the War in Vietnam (VVAW), provided us with a lot of information on communist infiltration, guidance, and eventual dominance of that organization.
What the authors didn’t know, or chose to ignore, was the “who, why, what, when, and how” of it.
So too Marannis has ignored the same “who ,what ,why, when and how” of Obama’s lies he told about his father, grandfather, friends, mother, and his whole life.
The Narcissist In Chief has pulled off the greatest con job since Bernie Madoff, only Madoff went to jail for his crimes. We’re waiting for Obama to go, as in “Jail to the Chief Liar”.
Yep, why, he's "almost distraught."
But... he's getting there.
Because all of this is so... well... surprising.
BS, he knows exactly what is afoot, for he planned it this way. Methinks he doth protest too much, all the way to the bank from his increased book sales because of the fuss created.
Brings back fond memories of Dan “Fake... but accurate” Rather.
I remember he did a bio on Clinton. The Obama camp can’t claim he is a right wing hack job.
So, while trying to defend Obama he zings him again.
Fat-Dave must be getting a lot of grief from his Lefty fans on the political cocktail circuit. Not much of a historian if he can’t take a little heat defending his work.
He doesn’t really care. He has to act as if the enormous popularity of his research upsets him so he can maintain his access to polite liberal society, but he is not actually bothered.
When someone lies about inconsequential things, you can be damn sure they also lie about things that really matter.
The relevant part starts at 0:30.
