He had a pet ape named Tata, spent his evenings smoking pot and when he was in the third-grade wrote a paper about how he wanted to be President.
Biographer David Maraniss' explosive book on the life of Barack Obama reveals a young President when he was just known as 'Barry'.
The book, Barack Obama: The Story, will be on bookstores June 19, but leaked snippets reveal his sordid pot-smoking past, string of relationships with different women and his love of basketball.
"Barry Obama played a lot of Hendrix, Earth, Wind & Fire, and Billie Holiday, but was known in the Annex for his wicked impression of Mick Jagger," writes Maraniss, according to Yahoo.
"He could do the walk, the strut, the face, and act out the dramatic scene of the Rolling Stones on stage at the Altamont Speedway outside Livermore, California, on December 6, 1969."
The author traces everything from the President's love of hats, 'He wore them cocked, to look cool,' to how he wore his flip-flops.
He also developed an affinity for women, naked women, that is.
"Allegedly stoned and drunk one night at Occidental, Obama and a friend stopped to talk to an attractive girl and 'Barry launched into a riff on nudity, offering his theory that the human race would be better off if people did not wear clothes. This declaration was made with the urgency of someone ready to strip then and there.
It seemed apparent that Barry was trying to seduce the woman right in front of' his friend who had a crush on the girl," the book alleges.

clown in chief. loser in chief. stoner in chief. and flips flops are the mark of slackers. slacker in chief.
To make it clear, this is the President he wanted to emulate.
(Obama loved hats)
Yes, I recall when that statement came out in the press.
Not only he was stone most of the time
He also a PIG
This tells me that even as a young fellow, our Barry was very good at pretending to be someone he wasn't.
A new autobiography on Obama is coming out and it’s not a piff piece. It should be interesting.
Affinity for women ? Yeah , right . Who and where are all these “women” ?
the guy on the right ? Sukarno ?
I want a copy of it signed by Josh Mandel.
BTW. does anyone know who the ugly puffy faced white guy with him is?
that makes Obama sound a lot more interesting than he ever was.
Married to this guy.
“He also developed an affinity for women, naked women, that is” BS detector just exploded.
I am sure Barry had a love life, I just am not sure which sex it was with.

"Barry Soetoro" in the third grade in Indonesia? I thought his name was "Barack Obama"
Was he adopted by his stepfather Soetoro but Obama doesn't want us to know?
Who is this guy? Who is this person who is our President?
Does anyone know who the real Barack Obama is, because I have come to realize that I have no idea who he is.
Obama, release your Occidental and Columbia college records so that we can find out who you are.
Obama, release your original Social Security application form so that we can find out who you are.
Obama, give Kapiolani Hospital permission to talk about your mother's records so that we can find out who you are.
"My name is Barry Soetoro. I am a third-grade student at SD Asisi."
CLASSLESS IDIOTS voted for another IDIOT....an even MORE CLASSLESS IDIOT....and a LAZY one also!!
*The book........reveal his............string of relationships with different women.....”
Well, well—it looks as if we’re in for more imaginary girlfriends BS!
I keep telling you people Mick Jagger is a more authentic "African-American" than Bambi.
“reveal his sordid pot-smoking past”
Question for Town Hall:
Mr President, you have revealed that as a young man you used marijuana often. A recent book confirms that you smoke pot often. As you know, people who use marijuana usually come to enjoy it and find it difficult to give up. When did you give up smoking marijuana and what caused you do to that?
Also, to follow up, as you know many Americans seeking employment, including the prospective members of the military, must take a drug test. Would you be willing to take a drug test to confirm that you are not now using illegal drugs?
Now he’s doing an impression of a President.
Teddy Kennedy's skinny brother.
Agreed. After all the Chicago bath house stories the naked women thing is a little weak.
It took him a bit to gravitate to his Poppa Davis's side of the coin.
(Come to think of it, to a stoned teenage male in most eras nekkid women are the rage!)
Somebody’s been paid to portray Obama as a “regular guy.”
