Meet the First Obama Girlfriend
breitbart ^ | 5/2/12 | Ben Shapiro

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 Obama’s 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.

Photo credit Vanity Fair.

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 haven’t read “The Waste Land” for a year, and I never did bother to check all the footnotes. But I will hazard these statements—Eliot 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,

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”.

Internal polling says most know he's on the down low. How else to combat it without bringing “ALL THE GIRLS HE'S LOVED BEFORE...”

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”.

Uh-huh.

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.

Pantload, indeed.

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?

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 could not disagree more with your cynical disbelief.

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.

” - - - The most telling part of this expose, however, lies in Obama’s friends and actions. All of Obama’s friends were Pakistani – Hasan Chandoo, Wahid Hamid, Sohale Siddiqi, Beenu Mahmood.”

Does anybody know how many of these “friends” are still alive, and where they are today?

That’s interesting, I didn’t know. I used to read poetry a lot and always liked Yeats’ poems.

Your photo analysis shows a woman known to be 5'7" with a man who is no more than 5'10".

The man is not Obama-Soetero who is 6'1".

In addition to the over-large head, we see it extends to cover where a normal man's neck would be--perhaps concealing a "typically white" neck"--

--to go with the hand holding the cup.

Exactly. Such a poor job but like all else released it doesn’t seem to matter!

Actually the feet extend the parallel lines of the lower legs evoking Leonard Cohen's Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye:

Walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme

Which vibe is in no way evident in any Obama-Soetero photo op with any woman save perhaps Ellen.

Her face is top-lit, his face is side-lit.

His head shadows don’t match the rest of the pic.
