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,

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.
