Obama's Memoir A Tissue Of Lies
IBD Editorials ^ | May 3, 2012

Posted on 05/03/2012 5:20:41 PM PDT by Kaslin

Public Trust: Our president, it seems, is quite the fabulist. A new book reveals he fabricated yet another story in his 1995 memoir, this one about a white girlfriend complaining about black anger.

In his supposedly nonfiction memoir, "Dreams From My Father," Obama claims he and the girlfriend got into a "big fight" after seeing a New York play by a black writer. He became annoyed when she allegedly asked "why black people were so angry all the time."

Obama biographer David Maraniss contacted the former girlfriend, Genevieve Cook, who insists the scene never took place. She says they never even saw a show by a black playwright.

Maraniss, who works for the Washington Post, snagged an interview with the president and asked him about the discrepancy. Obama agreed with Cook's account.

So why did he make up the anecdote? He told Maraniss it was a "useful theme to make about sort of the interactions that I had in the relationships with white girlfriends."

How convenient — especially when the overall theme of his bitter memoir is white racism.

Obama told another whopper in his autobiography. He wrote that while thumbing through a copy of Life magazine, he came across a story about a black man who underwent chemical treatments to lighten his skin. He claims he recoiled in horror at the photo of the bleached man, who looked like "an albino."

Then he says he got so angry that "I felt my face and neck get hot." He was upset that blackness was so condemned in America that a black man would resort to making himself white.

And yet the press managed to dig up every detail about Sarah Palin (who was, after all, merely the VP) and smear her beyond belief. The press is not merely lazy, they are criminal. The Travon Martin case is further evidence that the media is set on destroying this country and the people who work to support it. I have come to believe, firmly, that a degree in journalism is merely comprised of classes that cover “gossip” and “creative writing.” They seem to come out of college firmly entrenched in the philosophy that they should never allow FACTS to get in the way of the spin they wish to create.

So in addition to being an illegal alien, a Moslem, and a racist (but I repeat myself), Obama is a liar?!

I'm shocked! Shocked, I tell you!!

Am I losing my mind or did I hear that an author of an autobiography of this fraud fabricated a composite girlfriend of zero's from his college days, a sort of compilation of many women he maybe knew or was associated with and to top it off comments where made on the autobiography that it does not necessarily have to be true because it's an autobiography. We have truly opened the door to the insane asylum. Consequences of leaving the cesspool cover off

Michael Jackson probably really set him off.

Only in American can a talented black boy turn himself
into a rich white woman...

I remember a book, titled Black Like Me, that came out in the 60s/70s, about a white man who darkened his skin to pass as colored. That’s the only one I remember.

“Countless other tall tales are in his [BHO2’s] book. At the same time, he disguised the identity of several radicals with whom he closely associated, including members of the Communist Party under FBI investigation.”

I will keep saying this: BHO2 is a Marxist/Leninist. The only times he is is Muslim or Christian is when it is politically expedient. He is a champion of Global Social Justice, which is just another name for communism.

IOW, he got angry when asked why black people (one of whom, he purports to be) are so angry all the time.

NOW? This stuff is coming up now? What is going on? I get the feeling that the libs in the press didn’t read “his” books. I wonder if even he has read them. Seems like they are the kind of books a good lib wants seen prominently displayed in his/her/its home, but they don’t actually read them.

I have some simple questions: WHAT girlfriend? WHAT composite? Heck Bill Clinton had numerous girlfriends that we found out about. But Obama? None. Not even one.

It's like Michelle appeared and that was his only single one GF in existence. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But you'd think that a stud like Obama would have had many girlfriends. Or even friends in general. I don't know of a single person who called him a friend. Of either gender.

Unless he's one of those nerds who have a "GF in Niagra Falls".

"In his( Barak Obama's), supposedly nonfiction memoir, "Dreams From My Father," Obama claims he and the, (WHITE), girlfriend got into a "big fight" after seeing a New York play by a black writer. He became annoyed when she allegedly asked "why black people were so angry all the time."

The answer to the girlfriend's question is an easy and obvious one. Perpetual anger by blacks ensures their unity, which in turn ensures the continuation of "free stuff" for them, including welfare money, civil rights that whites don't have, (such as the ability to perpetrate a racially motivated "hate crime" by a white, while blacks are immune to them). Blacks also get extra points on certain government exams for jobs, and there are racial "quotas" that ensure blacks will get jobs ahead of far better qualified whites. Their skin pigmentation also belps them into college with government assistance through Affirmative Action progrmas that are not available to whites. It also helps keep scumbag shakedown artists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton very wealthy. (They try to legitimize their criminal acts with the "Reverend" titles, which they recieved from some rididulously illigitimate correspondence courses). So "black anger" ensures the perpetuation of keeping whites in positions of power to cower like dogs and continue to make blacks a special, protected, and constitutionally and judicially backed superior race).

Whoever denies this is a coward, especially if they are a politician with the ability to help change this travesty and make America a truly 'racially blind' nation of equal rights for all. The time has come to change all this reverse discrimination b.s., and for whites to unite in similar anger until true equality is accomplished and thinly veiled REPARATIONS are stopped cold, and special rights for black people, homosexual deviants, and females are abolished. We are supposed to be a nation of equality for every citizen, with no citizen to be given special power or special rights over another citizen. We are living in a post-Constitutional America, where politicians and judges are blatantly ignoring the Constitution that is supposed to be our perpetual, unwavering way of life. I called it "post-Constitutional" to be polite. What we are witnessing and living through is actually a lawless nation, where those in power do whatever they wish.

So we now know of Obama’s one ex-girlfriend. How long did it take to dig up that information? Or are her tales as true as the two released birth certificates? Three years should be long enough to create a pretty good cover story.

Pfffft. He was probably stoned and saw the skit on Saturday Night Live, "White Like Me" where Eddie Murphy plastered on a pale face to see how it *really* was to be a white man.

It was hilarious.

Zero; however, is a doofus.

I'm wondering when someone will mention the little bit of "BLOW" he did which he mentions in his book.

The public never did find out about that one. Time to vet it.

I’m shocked that the radio station here that has Rush on actually said something about his sealed college records.

And I’ve been checking yahoo story comments lately, vast majority are against barry and the first wookie.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up. If he didn't have a racist white girlfriend (he likely did not), he'd have to make one up (he probably did).

Taking a date to a social event does not a “girlfriend” make. It sounds like that was pretty much the extent of his “girlfriends”.

David Maraniss can visit a composite? Remarkable. I think all the girlfriend talk is inoculation against boyfriend talk anticipated in the campaign.

I remember reading a magazine article in the 60’s about a black man who bleached his skin. I think it was in Look Magazine, which would explain why nobody found it in Life.

A common mistake, really.

However, it wasn't the moon.....it was actually when he was on Uranus.

Well, not yours, mind you, but........

I’m not referring to the “Democrats.” I am referring to the media - you know - the people whose job it is to be unbiased and keep the public informed. They are more powerful in swinging elections than any one politician.
