Gotta head off the “Obama on the Down-low” and “Obama The Metrosexual” stories making the rounds these days.

The dork can write? Whod’a known?

Did the cretin remember to sign the letters with Obama, or Barry, instead of Bill Ayers?

Sorry, I believe nothing about the quota baby.

I call BS
if all those ‘ diaries’ existed they would have been published before
and one key lie
when Geniveve says Obama is a strong write?>
Really so that is why his first publisher, who advanded him 125K frooped him when he failed to write the book he was contracted for
and the justification used then was that writing was not his strong suit. speaking was

now we are supposed to believe 0dumbo was the deep philosophical writer?

BS

Taking this with a big grain of salt, but it’s interesting. Perhaps an effort to cover up his “alternate” lifestyle in an election year?

I think they are just trying to establish that he was actually in-country during the period of time in question.

Girlfriends?

When I first saw that title, I assumed Obama had written them to his only true love, himself.

Get the girlfriends out here. Let’s see them and talk to them?

“How’d you meet? What was your first date? Did you introduce him to your parents? What did he drive? Did he buy you any gifts? What did you find attractive about him? Did he drink? Drugs? Sex? Where did he live? How was he paying for college? Did you break it off or did he?”

The girls should start working to get their stories straight.

“A diary kept by Genevieve Cook, whom Obama met at an East Village Christmas party in 1983 and whom he lived with briefly, was more romantic, and depicts the domestic life the two shared together.”

Nice to know that Obama was a fornicator that lived with a shack-up girlfriend.

Only the most godless and a despicable couples would do so without being married.

Gotta head off the “Obama on the Down-low” and “Obama The Metrosexual” stories making the rounds these days.

From the Obamafile's 'Down Low' section:

How come not one single woman has ever, ever come
forward with her "my date with Barack" story, or tender
remembrances of their brief, but intense relationship?

Not one -- ever!

Girls talk.

"Did he drink?"

Well it's a damn sure bet that the girlfriends did.

Perhaps "Were you blind from birth, or later in life?" is a better question.

Just because the letters start out, “Hey, girlfriend!” doesn’t mean they were written to girls.

The letters between McNear and Obama centered around philosophy and literature.

Maybe I was an atypical guy, but none of my letters had anything to do with philosophy or literature. I think they mostly focused on things going on in my life at the time I wrote, and shared memories of the past.

Judging by the narrative in Dreams, I wouldn't think that philosophy and literature meant much to the young Obama.

Guy was in gay relationships off and on during the 80’s.

Why are we now learning about these “girl friends”?

I would think they were proud to have been an interest of his at one time and they would have stepped forward.

Nah, they started out “I”
Also, he said, he doesn’t want to deprive other women of the pleasure of knowing him. You know “share the wealth that is me..Barry”

Negroes on the down-low such as Obama don't consider themselves homosexual. They often have wives or girlfriends and behave bisexually. However, Bathhouse Barry is such an obvious down-low “bottom” that the false trail of former New York girlfriends won't throw off anyone except those leftists who already have consumed the Kool-Aid.

We as a Christian nation and society must not accept the practice of couples living together (shacking-up) before marriage.

Hey babe,
I just wanted to point out that Karl Marx would have enjoyed golf.
I am certain he would have golfed every chance he could.
Not to mention that Chairman Mao, when he wasn’t busy starving tens of millions of his own people, was entitled to go on a vacation frequently.

Love ya,
Barry Bear
