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,

So where is she now?

My daughter works in Photoshop all the time.
She says the light source of BO’s head is different from the source on the girl’s face. Half his face is dark, meaning that the source is from slightly behind his right ear, yet the shadow on her face obscures her features to a much lesser degree on the same side, although they should have the same shadow.
She will end up being like George Costanza's girlfriend Susan that he drove to lesbianism.
And... you aren't too far off!
I’m not buying any of it. You’d think she would have come forward quite a while ago.
Notice Obama’s white hand, oversized-head. THIS IS PHOTO-SHOPPED! Another complete fabrication from beginning to end.
That’d be Thomas Stearns Eliot, not George.
That “literary criticism” is hilarious. I’ve read better stuff from my undergrads, and any professional critic would be ashamed to publish such twaddle.
It wouldn’t be the first photoshop job that the Obama people have tried to pass off to an unsuspecting public.
Was it his right hand or his left hand?
The only partially true statement here is that this nitwit hasn't read "The Waste Land" lately -- but for "lately" read "never". Anybody who can think that Yeats and Eliot are singing from the same page is an idiot.
His head is not that big. Looks totally wrong.
“Its the perspective.”
Normally, I would agree with you. Perspective in pictures and I don’t get along real well.
However, her head looks normal, why wouldn’t his? The picture looks like it was shot pretty much straight on by someone about the same height as 0 - if that is indeed him.
I also am not saying it’s real or faked, it just looks odd to me. Just like everything else that is associated with 0.
It’s a man, baby.
just thinking out loud here...
would the youthful Socialist Hipster Barry ever wear a rustic plaid flannel pull-over?
every photo from 0bama’s youth appears to be photoshopped.
Just something odd about every one of them - usually he or his head just appears too big.
