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,

Thanks much for the Ping. As was said earlier, this is a super thread.

And it's not done. . .

I don’t know much about Alger Hiss and that part of our history.

Here is a write up of the front for Communist activities and Jessup’s involvement.

Don’t know how much is true

among others

“Jessup was a member of the wealthy Stotesbury family, partners of J.P. Morgan. His brother John Jessup was a wealthy banker, president Equitable Trust Co., director of Coca Cola and Diamond State Telephone Co.”

Does the American University in Beirut and Alexandria, Egypt ring a bell...?

At one time, it was said that Stanley Ann's school uniform, in the picture where she's sitting on the couch arm with Stanley Armor and Madelyn seated on the couch, had an insignia from a Lebanese school on it. Has this been confirmed?

(I try to keep up, but I can't recall reading if this was ever confirmed or not.)

Philip’s brother John B was married to an Olympic Tennis player who won a silver medal in Paris.

There is an obscure reference that John B was head of Treasury Department of E I Dupont after WW I...but mostly what I find on that is modern day age of JOHN P Jessup . Wonder if they are related.

What a bizarre choice for a beard for Obama. You can find all kinds of things on the family but the girl is a ghost on the net...scrubbed away...

I have absolutely no doubt that Obama’s family was involved with the Spooks.

Here is info on that school

Now we are finding more mysterious contacts in his past with this latest revelation.

I’m still wearing a cheap jacket I bought 25+ years ago and have no desire to retire it yet.
I'm willing to bet it isn't a "Members Only" Jacket.

Nah, just kidding. I'm not a fashionista and I have no knowledge whatsoever of what brand that jacket is.

Not right off the bat. I would have to think about it and do some looking to see if anything clicked.

To say that Dr. Robert Stein has an active role in the Sag Harbor community is a gross understatement.

Even before his appointment to the Sag Harbor Village Board of Trustees, Stein and his wife, Alex McNear, were vital residents in the village, hosting community events at their home. However, it was after his appointment that Stein really shone as a dedicated volunteer, easily becoming the most diverse and active member of the village board.
