Buried Lede: Did Young Barack Obama Hit On Best Friendís Prom Date In Yearbook?
Mediaite.com ^ | 5:04 pm, May 23rd, 2013

Posted on 05/24/2013 2:50:20 PM PDT by drewh

Earlier today, Mediaite brought you Time magazine’s exclusive photo of an adorkable 1979 prom foursome that included a 17 year-old Barack Obama. The photo was provided by Kelli Allman, prom date of the young future POTUS’ best friend, Greg Orme. Along with the prom photo, Allman gave Time a shot of the yearbook page that Obama inscribed, which raised this observer’s eyebrows, slightly, by suggesting “I hope we can keep in touch this summer, even though Greg will be gone.”

I didn’t really look at the picture that closely, though, and only read the quote from the Mediaite post. Upon closer examination, it looks like maybe young Barack was dropping a hook in the water.

As a formerly-17 year-old guy (in 1985, to be fair), it already strains credibility that while Greg was away, his pal only wanted to play, like, Scrabble over lunch. But maybe he was just a good guy with a short list of dining companions. Wonkette‘s Rebecca Schoenkopf helpfully transcribed Barack Obama’s yearbook message to Kelli Allman, complete with totally NSFW footnotes:

Kelli, It has been so nice getting to know you this year. You are extremely sweet and foxy1, I don’t know why Greg would want to spend any time with me at all2! You really deserve better than clowns like us; you even laugh at my jokes3!I hope we can keep in touch with each other this summer, even though Greg will be gone. Call me and I’ll buy you lunch sometimes4.

Anyway, good luck in everything you do, and stay happy.

Your friend, Love [heart] Barry Obama

1 “Foxy” is a good word for letting a girl know you would be amenable to a bone. Like, when you are talking to California’s Attorney General and you are all “hey foxy, what is up,” and then she is like…

You should go there and read the rest of them, because they’re funny. Still, as someone who genuinely likes and respects the President, I had a hard time agreeing that he was trying to creep on his best friend’s girl. But what Time magazine, Mediaite, and Wonkette all failed to point out was this:

Yes, the telltale digits. Sure, an ambiguous wish to maybe keep in touch, have lunch, could be completely innocent, but the phone number in the yearbook is a purpose pitch. As much as I hate to admit it, it appears there was macking being performed. Since Allman had nothing juicy to tell Time, it looks like maybe they never closed the deal, but one way or another, he did provide her with access to contraception, so maybe he’s not such a bad guy.

Ah, even a little heart in his sig. You’d almost think he cared more than just getting into her white panties...

He’s hitting on her big time in that note, and REMINDING her ‘Greg will be gone’. LOL I wouldn’t be surprised if this is all FABRICATED TO REMAKE HIS IMAGE TARNISHED BY SCANDALS though.

I’m surprised he didn’t dot his “i’s” with big loopy circles, too.

I agree. Wasn’t he still going by ‘Barry Soetoro’ at age 17? This looks like some convenient BS to try to cover up his early life as the Indonesian citizen Barack Hussein Soetero.

Threw his friend Gregg under the bus for sure. LOL.

Anyhow, I’ll give him this much credit. He has nice penmanship. My script is an enciphered mess that only my wife and I can understand.

P.S. - Gregg looks like Ted Knight’s spoiled son in “Caddyshack”.

He writes like a pre-teen girl.

Surprised he didn’t dot every “I” with flowers.

More likely he was trying to hit on his friend.

The least manly penmanship I’ve ever seen. I was about to call “b.s.” until I remembered Barry’s the least manly president I’ve ever seen.

Another “let’s fantasize that Obama’s NOT a homosexual even though that would only elevate him our in demented, leftist infiltrated heads” story?

I was wondering when that was written. It could have been added to the yearbook yesterday.

Any tests done on the ink?
Why is moochelle not furious? or is this why she’s taking another vacation?

A note on a girl’s yearbook page is described as ‘hitting’ on her? I don’t think it works that way.

His handwriting looks female.

Other than that, there's no story as a 17 year old is not the adult they will become. Maybe it showed up to try to convince us he isn't a homo himself.

I’m not sure this is much todo about nothing....

He was in high school....for Pete’s sake...

I didn’t let my kids read the handwritten notes in my yearbook until they were 16...lest they would know all the drinking, drugs, I had done while I was an innocent teenager ....!
