It only took nearly six years for the media to begin vetting President Obamas 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.

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 havent read The Waste Land for a year, and I never did bother to check all the footnotes. But I will hazard these statementsEliot 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,

In the end, what we find out about Obama is what we already suspected: he was deeply narcissistic, pretentious, and in his own mind, an outsider to America.
How come it took so long for stuff like this to come out?
Ok, but who’s the first boyfriend? FMD?
One point his propagandist Maraniss is trying to convey in his piece is the idea that Obama is not really a far-left guy. The claim is that he “moved beyond” that.
The propagandist even has Obama asking Jerry Kellman in interviewing for his “community organizer” job in Chicago to assure him that it wasn’t a far left organization! LOL.
You are right. 0’s head looks like it was Photoshopped.
Considering that Bill Ayers wrote his two "autobiographies" this is no surprise.
Wasn't in a known fact at Columbia in those days that George Eliot was not a HE?
If this were George Bush such ignorance would be deemed evidence of complete imbecility.
Headline: GEORGE W. BUSH THINKS GEORGE ELIOT WAS A MAN!
I wonder if he "explained" this...
She’s doesn’t appear to guilty.
And to think all this time I thought Barry was probably a Lindsey Graham.
look for those multiple layers in the jpeg
Any body else seeing a pattern here:
Bill Clinton - Born to govern. His only vision of the future was centered around becoming president.
Barack Obama - Born to govern, or at least influence and mold others of lesser intelligence.
Republican Presidents (lately) - succeed in business, live the American dream as provided them then decide that they need a permanent legacy.
“The head looks too big for his body in the picture...”
It does, but it’s amazing how well it fits up his posterior relief hole.
Her body is nearly a carbon copy of his - just whiter.
She appears to be white white. And she married a Muslim.
It is pseudoacademic onanistic bullcr@p like this that makes me glad I was a science major. He writes as if he had a bad case of constipation.
Reminds me of that line in “Bananas” when Louise Lasser asks Woody Allen if he had read the “I Ching”.
Trying to impress her, Allen replies, “I haven’t read the Ching itself, but I have dabbled in Kirkegaard.”
P.S.: from the photo, she appears to be a 2-bagger.
So where is she now?
It’s the perspective. The photo was shot from somewhere above — that foreshortens the body, and makes the head appear larger. (That’s not proof that the photo is genuine — but, if it’s a fake, it’s a good one.)
I thought his first girlfriend was Larry Sinclair in a dress.
I prefer to believe he found those statements in Cliffs Notes on the book The Waste Land.........
