Posted on 05/02/2012 12:18:02 PM PDT by Nachum
It only took nearly six years for the media to begin vetting President Obamas past.
Today, Vanity Fair released an excerpt from a new biography of Barack Obama by David Maraniss. The excerpt discusses Barack Obama's first love affair, with a white Australian woman named Genevieve Cook. It's a telling examination of who Obama was as a young man -- and it shows a self-absorbed "internationalist" with delusions of grandeur.

The book itself sounds like an ode to Obama. Maraniss writes, At age 20, Obama was a man of the world He could not be of one place, rooted and provincial. No, says Maraniss, this was a broadminded young man who knew the ways of different cultures better than he knew himself.
When he first moved to New York, he was in the midst of an affair with Alexandra McNear, a girl from Occidental. They exchanged a series of purple letters with one another turgid missives from overfevered young minds. Here, for example, is tendentious Obama explaining poetry to his young girlfriend:
I havent read The Waste Land for a year, and I never did bother to check all the footnotes. But I will hazard these statementsEliot contains the same ecstatic vision which runs from Münzer to Yeats. However, he retains a grounding in the social reality/order of his time. Facing what he perceives as a choice between ecstatic chaos and lifeless mechanistic order, he accedes to maintaining a separation of asexual purity and brutal sexual reality. And he wears a stoical face before this. Read his essay on Tradition and the Individual Talent, as well as Four Quartets,

Wonder how Michelle’s going to react to bringing up his old flames....seems to me she has quite the jealous streak for pretty much everything in life.
When you see the "long-range" view, that's even more clumsily obvious:
There are other "early Obama" photos running around that also appear to have been doctored -- big head, incredibly long arm, etc.
WHAT is the deal here?
Please note netmilsmom’s comment.
They must be expecting a homo-eruption.
Check the post at #103. It’s much more obvious in the “long range” version. What a clumsy fake!
Are you serious? If a man had tried to ply me with that garbage, I would have fallen over laughing.
When kids, we used to make paper dolls like that....cutting out paper heads and slipping them into tabs pasted on the backs of various models' bodies wearing Sears catalogue clothes.
Sometimes our heads were too big or too small for the bodies, LOL...like this phony photo of the Creep-in-Chief.
In the long-range view there are four legs but two leg shadows. Also, her right flank has an odd light streak from her hip to her shoe. Early 80s photoshopfail?
Check the “long range” photo at post #103. The Photoshop is insanely obvious.
The difference in color tone (white?) of the left hand and the color tone of the left side of his face is telling something.
Yes,, it’s all very convenient. He was probably “shopping buddies” with the girl in the picture, if you know what I mean.
The hilarious thing is his head isn’t just “big,” it’s Hulk-sized!
That dude’s head is gigantic . . . Like a pumpkin.
You made my day. Ah, that Minkoff minx.
I don’t think so. Her head is turned to the side toward the sun, so more of the right side of her face is illuminated than B.O.’s who’s looking straight ahead. Also, if you look at her hand holding the cup, it’s about at the same angle as B.O.’s head, and it has just as much shading. Also the color of B.O.’s hand is no different than the color of his face that’s illuminated in the photo. Definitely a stretch to call this a Photoshop.
My Lord! That head is on the wrong body.....that’s HUGE
I'll bet Looter Man would look good in that jacket.
The head is GIGANTIC, not just big. Look at #103 and imagine how that would look in real life.
You are only on post #43 - wait until you hit post #103!!!
“He could not be of one place”....this sounds like it could have come from the Bible talking about Jesus. The media worships this guy. If he’s not the anti-christ he sured missed a damn good chance.
Leni explains Obummer's writing style to Freepers....."It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents - except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness....."
OBAMA: Harvard Law Class Photos Missing
He's not MY Prince Charming!
All this forgerin’ is bein’ done by amateurs.
Your daughter is correct about the different light directions — and his head is almost 20% larger scale than hers.
Did Maraniss say he interviewed these women? Did she give him the letter? Does he have a copy of it in the book? If Maraniss saw the letters she wrote to him that means he kept the letters. Show me copies.
Isn’t zero left handed?
Don’t southpaws wear their watches on the right wrist?
Notice his "straight from the ground" arm. He must have some of Stretch Armstrong's DNA.
The camera recognizes the messiah in him and makes him crisper than anyone else in the photo.
Hand too dark/small.
Many more examples on this thread:
And look at his left hand, especially at the wrist. It is out of proportion with the shoulder. Even the watch is tiny, as if someone didn’t resize the arm area properly.
Oh! I love those "Find-The-Commie" photos!
See #103 for the whole effect, Ralph. Unbelievable.
Ya’ know, they’ve been photoshopping his head too big for years - maybe they are just saying ‘screw it’ and running with his big-azz head through all of these forays.
I remember that Harvard photoshop - why on earth isn’t anyone in the MSM picking up on this?...ya’ I know, getting sick of answering my own question....again.....
Here’s a picture of Obama wearing a watch on his left wrist.
I never noticed the arm coming up from the ground in ‘08! And I was looking right at it.
Ha! Yeah, it’s the “big-azz head” version of the “big lie” — if you Photoshop it enough times, people will start to believe it.
Look a the light source on Obama’s head. Like you said, behind his ear. The light source for the girl appears to be coming from up above. Look at the shine on the top of her head. The shadows on her face appear to go downward.
Look at their hands and the cups. Obama’s hand looks unnatural, like a claw. He is holding the cup in a weird way. And his hand is white.
Look at the shadow Obama’s cop makes on her sweater. It doesn't look right and it is not consistent with the light source on her head and face.
Just plain freaky!
Even more obvious in the non-cropped version.
How stupid do they think people are??
The shadow of the cup Obama is holding shows the angle of the light source. Given that, the shadows on his face and that of the girl is wrong.
Where is the photo from? It’s not at the Breitbart link.
Pinging you to my post #146.
Not only that, it isn’t anywhere that TinEye can find it (same goes with the cropped version).
