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,

FOREIGN STUDENT AT OCCIDENTAL? Maybe McNear would know whether or not Obama was registered as a foreign student at Occidental College in California.
She might even know if Obama ever went by the name of Soetoro.
I wish a reporter would track McNear down and find out if she knows if Obama was registered as a foreign student at Occidental, and/or if she knows how Obama paid his college expenses at Occidental. That is, did Obama receive financial aid as a foreign student?
I know, I had a workmate who was married to the mother of his three children, they were together for more than ten years, and one day he suddenly announced he was in love with a very handsome young man considerably younger than himself. I heard that his wife remarried, but his children never forgave him.

Unusual name, I imagine it's the same man.
His hand with the cup looks too white
I think I detect a new internet meme in the making, similar to “looter guy” and “vacation guy”...
The Construction of Obama (if you will)
Now, he sits on the Board of the Susan Ross Foundation with a broken briefcase and a tape recorder.
Look at the rest of the late poem from which it comes, and you'll see what I mean.
He's just entirely unlike Eliot (and not far from a loon.)
I never thought that Kenya group photo looked real at all. Additionally, it looks pretty warm in Kenya, why wear a black leather jacked?
So it’s the black leather jacked that’s real the head above is not....they must have a reason for photographing that jacked over and over again. Lends continuity of some sort?
Here’s another thought. Zero’s supposedly 6 ft tall, right? There is he “is” with a group of Kenyans, looks to be about their height, give or take a couple of inches. Of course, the photo makes it look as though he standing next to them but at the same time he’s in front of them, but that’s another matter.... I thought Kenyans were generally short, as the Kenyan Obama.
How do photos of other people of average height, or Kenyans for that matter, look standing next to Zero in non-photoshopped photos? Is the height difference more apparent? And the supposed girlfriend, she must be pretty tall, since she’s not much shorter? But that thing is so fake it doesn’t even matter, but it is another point in favor of photoshopping, if anohter point is even needed.
The Bush miss me yet on the computer screen was a nice touch. lol
He wears a size 13 1/2 shoe according the NYT. Trying looking at that.
Wowzer - that is one GINORMOUS photoshopped-pasted head.
Hey girlfriend, Went running today. Man, am I out of shape!
I run every other day at the small indoor track [at Columbia] which slants slightly upward like a plate; I stretch long and slow, twist and shake, the fatigue, the inertia finding home in different parts of the body. I check the time and growlaargh!and tumble onto the wheel. And bodies crowd and give off heat, some people are in front and you can hear the patter or plod of the steps behind. You look down to watch your feet, neat unified steps, and you throw back your arms and run after people, and run from them and with them, and sometimes someone will shadow your pace, step for step, and you can hear the person puffing, a different puff than yours, and on a good day theyll come up alongside and thank you for a good run, for keeping a good pace, and you nod and keep going on your way, but youre pretty pleased, and your stride gets lighter, the slumber slipping off behind you, into the wake of the past.
You ar right,...
Here's the jacket, ring and a similar scarf. This pic is purported to be a fake by many
The next two were taken the same day. See the watch, ring and jacket. The jacket is looking more worn out by the time he gets to Kenya. Intersting thing about this last pic is that this has been cropped. There used to be most of the Obama tribe in that picture but I can't find it on the internet anywhere this morning. More scrubbing? And if so, for what reason? It should have shown his left hand.
Ah, now we know where the head scars came from.
I’m still wearing a cheap jacket I bought 25+ years ago and have no desire to retire it yet.
Yeah, those legs and feet stood out to me too but I haven’t had any luck finding Hussein standing like that to compare.
How I wish there were more like you here to raise the level of discourse. Always a pleasure, NB.
Are those the same clothes he wore in that picture with his grandparents at Central Park?
I for one, am glad to know our Fearless(ly) (in)Eligible Maximum Leader is a red-blooded hetero kinda guy! Wadda STUD!*
Boy-o-Boy, this oughta put an end to those silly "gay" rumors! Just Wow!
* .,.. and now he is a war hero, too! I bet if those pansy Navy Seals hadn't gotten in his way, Barry woulda wiped out ALL the al-qaeda terrorists

If this is Obama’s words? My, he really is a self-impressed fool. It must be such a burden being so uber evolved and above mere mortals. I'm calling BS on this tragic romance. Bring on the Pock-eeee-staneeeee boyz. I'm sure that would be much more interesting, in a gross way.
It’s the dog’s laptop wallpaper.
He really respects W’s fondness for dogs.
[especially since his fondness never included dining upon them]
Your head would be too if you had no neck.
The guy in the photo must have some kind of skin disease/anomaly because the left hand looks ‘white’ while the left side of face is darker. Doesn’t appear that shados make the difference.
NEVER write “poetry” when you’re stoned and playing “Mad Libs”.
That’s a huge size! The feet in that photo are not that big, nor is he that short; nor is his head that big.
The jacket is a big clue.
He was a student (at least at some time in his life) of Swedenborg.
I am 100% sure Zero did not write that. Cashill should check these letters the way he did the Dreams book. Look for Ayers “fingerprints”.
Very funny, this.
Something tells me his fab gf’s are either gay or have had a sh*t load of $$$ put into a Swiss bank account by Axlerod.
The interesting thing about this...all the old dudes at Man's Country that are on their last breath may “COME OUT”.
Not that the MSM will report it...but, then again...I think they know what is coming and are craven by nature. I'm looking for somebody in the media to actually vet this creep. And that not only includes his newly found big nosed, verbose and silly old gf. It would include: Bill Frist, Reggie Love, Donald Sinclair, etc., etc., etc.
I recall reading from that fab book Ayers wrote (Dreams) that widdle Barry hung out with the “structural feminists”.

Back to the thread; there's so much here, I don't know where to tell you to begin. See photos, too.
Thanks to all y'all for the pings.
I dated a very, very nice guy that had a REAL job at Harvard. Smart guy. Smarter than these idiots. He wasn't in the hard science area...but still, smart.
If he wrote me a letter, it was nothing like this. And we were long distance “lovers”. There was none of this gibberish/look how smart I am/I'm so full of ennui that I may collapse.
I'm calling major BS on this book. I think the “love letters” were dreamed up at the kitchen table of the Ayers.
You know...just that guy in the neighborhood.
I can not wait until this little POS fraud is exposed. I smell desperation....and flop sweat at his recent photo ops. We shall see.
I wonder why they thought this crap would impress people?
I still say it is Siddiqui in drag. :)
Nah....Wookster is still his “lace front” and this smells highly of Bill Ayers or SOMEBODY else supplying these fab letters. What else has come out that he has written? POP? the poem that looks to be written by that old drunk commie Frank? The other poem which, frankly, sucked? The letter to the ed at the Columbia mag?
I’m calling major BS.
And, btw...he’s on the d/l. I have 4 friends, guys over 40 in Chi and they laugh that the media gives him a pass on his hijinks at the tubs (with Rahm) in the late ‘90’s.
I read these poignant letters while drinking Chocolate Flavored Cabernet and listening to Liberace LP's, and let me tell you, Sister ... I was moved to tears.
To think my great big rough aggressive, uncaring John Wayne type country could produce a POTUS like this sensitive, socially aware, literary stud muffin .......I would castigate you further, but I must be off to a PETA Meeting and then the OWS Planning session.
