Skip to comments.Why it matters that Obama dated a composite and ate a dog

There was a brief media firestorm yesterday when Vanity Fair broke the news that Obamas famous New York girlfriend was a fiction. She appears in his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father, described in some detail by her appearance, voice and mannerisms. But a new biography of Obama with an excerpt published in Vanity Fair reveals that she was actually an amalgam of several different women. Politico immediately ran with Obama: 'New York girlfriend' was composite and Drudge headlined with Obama Admits Fabricating Girlfriend in a Memoir. Coming hot on the heels of the news that the Pres once ate a dog, his weirdo factor seems to have hit the roof.
Actually, it turns out that Obama always said that his New York squeeze was a fake. Within a couple of hours of the story breaking, journalists pointed out that at the beginning of Dreams From My Father it reads, For the sake of compression, some of the characters that appear are composites of people, Ive known, and some events appear out of precise chronology. Politico was forced to print a humiliating correction and David Graham of The Atlantic went in for the kill: Politico has served as an unwitting pawn in a game conservative spinmeisters are playing to redefine Obama between now and November
It's much the same as the flap over Obama eating dog, in which a different piece of Dreams From My Father, in which he describes eating canine meat as a boy in Indonesia, was rediscovered. While conservative activists and journalists present these stories while claiming that Obama wasn't properly vetted four years ago, what's actually happening is they're reintroducing facts to the record, this time with a far more negative spin.

LOL......that’s a flamer right there, I don’t care who you are.
Interesting post. Thanks.
Where’s the dog on Michelle’s revised food pyramid?
Found this funny parody commercial.

Yes - Obama also ate snake and wanted to eat tiger. Heard that he could take on some of the attributes of a tiger by eating one. Or was that 'Tigger'? It's 'cultural' - guess we shouldn't Pooh-pooh this ...
If Obama did have minority girlfriends before he started dating his wife, are there any pictures on the internet of those girlfriends? Thanks.
Given what we know about Baraq, I'm surprised his 'girlfriend' wasn't inflatable.
I’d be much more interested in they they have to say.
I’m surprised his ‘girlfriend’ wasn’t inflatable.
Even he wouldn’t have enough wind to inflate both a doll and his ego.
It's really not beyond reason to conclude that barry is a fudge packer and desperately trying to keep it under wraps.
"That one doesnt look quite as fake as most other photos of Barry that Ive seen."
I just saw this very photo used on a TV commercial for the re-election of Barack Obama (History Channel - 7:45pm 6/3/2012).
My instincts about the photo being genuine were dead on after all. And I'm guessing my instincts about Barry being a fudge packer going way back are dead on too.
