Obama: 'New York girlfriend' was composite
Politico ^ | 5/2/12 | Dylan Byers

Posted on 05/02/2012 10:03:41 AM PDT by Nachum

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

Probably, but considering that Bill Ayers wrote the book for him, I wonder where they drug this person up? Or if she really exists? And why they feel a need to bring a female from his past up now? Nothing is by accident with these people. Remember, it’s never Obama, it’s a committee of very evil people trying to bring the USA down.

Isn’t the NY girlfriend a thinly disguised past amour of Ayers?

Well I knew I had to have her so I sent off in the mail
I saw her picture in that magazine
And when the postman brought her, I thrilled as I blew up
The prettiest plastic girl you’d ever seen

I called the new girl Wendy and Wendy blew my mind
Figured that I’d keep her around
Her plug kept her inflated when I had it in
But when I pulled it out she’d go down

She’s my life sized, wife sized, full grown blow up plastic girl, nothin’s missin’
Yeah she never had a headache, she ain’t got bad breath when we’re kissin’
Yeah she’s there when you need her, she’s more than just a friend
And her skin is as smooth as a pearl
She’s a life sized, wife sized, full grown blow up plastic girl

Well I didn’t tell nobody except my best friend Earl
You can’t trust just anyone you see
When I’d come home late at night all tired from makin’ pizzas
Wendy, she’d be waitin’ there for me

One night I came home anxious with Wendy on my mind
And it broke my heart in two when I walked in
And I found the one I’d always thought would always be just mine
Layin’ there with Earl my best friend

She’s my life sized, wife sized, full grown blow up plastic girl, nothin’s missin’
Yeah she never had a headache, she ain’t got bad breath when we’re kissin’
Yeah she’s there when you need her, she’s more than just a friend
And her skin is as smooth as a pearl
She’s a life sized, wife sized, full grown blow up plastic girl

I never dreamed that Wendy would be the cheatin’ kind
I never figured Earl would let me down
But you don’t know what can happen in these modern mixed up times
Cause there’s a lot of wierdos runnin’ round...

-Randy Rogers Band

Ayers came up with the composite because he only had boy friends.

Jack Cashill has studied this in depth in “Deconstructing Obama”. Bill Ayers had a girlfriend who closely resembled the one described in “Dreams...” - she is the one who got blown up in a NYC apt. making bombs for the Weathermen. Ayers never got over her, so he kept her memory alive in Barry’s book.

Correct.

‘More intriguing still, Obama seems to borrow the one girlfriend in the oddly sexless Dreams from Ayers’ experience. “There was a woman in New York that I loved,” he tells his half-sister years after the fact. “She was white. She had dark hair, and specks of green in her eyes.”

The woman of Obama’s memory evokes images of Diana Oughton. As her FBI files attest, Oughton had brown hair and green eyes. The two women shared similar family backgrounds as well. In fact, they seemed to have grown up on the very same estate.

“The house was very old, her grandfather’s house,” Obama writes of his girlfriend’s country home. “He had inherited it from his grandfather.” According to a Time Magazine article written soon after her death, Oughton “brought Bill Ayers and other radicals” to the family homestead in Dwight, Illinois. The main house on the Oughton estate, a 20-room Victorian mansion, was built by Oughton’s father’s grandfather.

The carriage house, in which Oughton lived as a child, now serves as a public library. It may have already seemed like one when Ayers visited, an impression that finds its way into Obama’s memory of a library “filled with old books and pictures of the famous people [the grandfather] had known-presidents, diplomats, industrialists.”

“It was autumn, beautiful, with woods all around us,” Obama writes of his visit to his girlfriend’s country home, “and we paddled a canoe across this round, icy lake full of small gold leaves that collected along the shore.” As can be seen from aerial photos even today, the Oughton estate also has a small lake and is surrounded by woods.’

They have to go with this composite lie because Obama’s old girlfriend says the description is not her and the book actually describes Ayers’ girlfriend.

Dogbert, you would assume at least a few people here at FR would be semi-conscious. Did you ever read 'Deconstructing Obama' by Jack Cashill, Ph.D? Bill Ayers wrote Dreams. The NY girl was Diana Oughton, a marxist terrorist from an elitist Long Island family. She was Ayers LOVE and died in an explosion while constructing a bomb. He fabricated 'Genevieve' becuase he KNEW Obama was a homosexual. Michelle is a beard he needed to become electable, even in a hell hole like Illinois.

Why don't you do a little homework before posting such silly comments. You people amaze me.

'Auduacity' was written by Obama's speechwriter wunderkind, Jon Favreau. There, now you're smart!

the 'New York girlfriend' was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago

She was lovely with her one breast larger than the other but her long leg and short leg were slightly offputting. However the glasses she did and did not wear went perfectly with her blond, brown, short, long, red hair. And her beautiful lips could barely conceal her under/overbite and her perfect, slightly, crooked teeth.

Years ago there was a writer for a local newspaper who (IIRC) made up composite characters. None existed in any form. That writer was fired, IIRC.

Imho, any "composite character" is likely the same thing, and in this case, I doubt any "girlfriend" ever existed.

Remember Janet Cook of the Washington Post who got a Pulitzer Prize for her composite character Little Jimmy?

And of course, the greatest composite character of all time, IMHO, Deep Throat?

I do recall Janet Cook. Two others are Patricia Smith and Mike Barnicle of the Boston Globe.

FYI Regarding Janet Cooke. Sorry I misspelled her name as Cook in my earlier post, which could have been misleading.

In 1980, Cooke joined the "Weeklies" section staff of the Washington Post under editor Vivian Aplin-Brownlee.

Cooke falsely claimed she had a degree from Vassar College, a master's degree from the University of Toledo, and had received a journalism award while at the Toledo Blade.

While Cooke had attended Vassar for a year, she had only received a bachelor's degree from Toledo.

(As a legitimate Affirmative Action hire she did not have to claim she was part Indian.)

"Jimmy's World"

In an article titled "Jimmy's World", which appeared in the Post on September 28, 1980, Cooke wrote a gripping profile of the life of an 8-year-old heroin addict. She described the "needle marks freckling the baby-smooth skin of his thin, brown arms."

The story engendered much sympathy among readers, including Marion Barry, then mayor of Washington, D.C. He and other city officials organized an all-out police search for the boy, which was unsuccessful and led to claims that the story was fraudulent.

Barry, responding to public pressure, lied and claimed that Jimmy was known to the city and receiving treatment; he was announced dead shortly after.

(Another guy named Barry lied! GASP!)

Fallout

Although some within the Post doubted the story's veracity, the Post defended it and assistant managing editor Bob Woodward (himself no stranger to composite figures) submitted the story for the Pulitzer Prize. Cooke was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing on April 13, 1981.

When the editors of the Toledo Blade, where Cooke had previously worked, read her biographical notes, they noticed a number of discrepancies. Further investigation revealed that Cooke's academic credentials were inflated. Pressured by the editors of the Post, Cooke confessed her guilt.

Two days after the prize had been awarded, Post publisher Donald E. Graham held a press conference and admitted that the story was fraudulent. The editorial in the next day's paper offered a public apology.

Assistant managing editor Woodward said (Hey Bernstein and I did it with Deep Throat so what's the big deal, why let a little thing like truth get in the way of a great story?) at the time: "I believed it, we published it. Official questions had been raised, but we stood by the story and her. Internal questions had been raised, but none about her other work. The reports were about the story not sounding right, being based on anonymous sources, and primarily about purported lies [about] her personal life – [told by three reporters], two she had dated and one who felt in close competition with her. I think that the decision to nominate the story for a Pulitzer is of minimal consequence. I also think that it won is of little consequence. It is a brilliant story—fake and fraud that it is. It would be absurd for me or any other editor to review the authenticity or accuracy of stories that are nominated for prizes."

(And that boys and girls is the essence of MSM news reporting. Why let a little thing like the truth deter from a great story?)

Cooke resigned and returned the Prize. She appeared on the Phil Donahue show in January 1982, and said that the high-pressure environment of the Post had corrupted her judgment. (In other words, they MADE me do it!)She said that her sources had hinted to her about the existence of a boy such as Jimmy, but unable to find him, she eventually created a story about him in order to satisfy her editors. (They MADE me do it.)

Very convenient - Ayers’ dead girlfriend. No one to track down, no one to interview, etc.

Yes, very convenient....
