Is it any wonder that a guy with a made up birth certificate and a made up Selective Service registration would have a made up girlfriend with who he had a made up conversation, recounted in what is supposed to be his actual autobiography?
Seriously, it should come as no surprise. No surprise at all.
“One night I took her to see a new play by a black playwright. It was a very angry play, but very funny. Typical black American humor. The audience was mostly black, and everybody was laughing and clapping and hollering like they were in church. After the play was over, my friend started talking about why black people were so angry all the time. I said it was a matter of remembering—nobody asks why Jews remember the Holocaust, I think I said—and she said that’s different, and I said it wasn’t, and she said that anger was just a dead end. We had a big fight, right in front of the theater. When we got back to the car she started crying. She couldn’t be black, she said. She would if she could, but she couldn’t. She could only be herself, and wasn’t that enough.”
Never happened. Oh it IS in his autobiography, “Dreams From my Father” but this girlfriend never really existed.
Obama himself now says she was a “Compression” of several girlfriends.
In his book, he claims this went down with Genevieve Cook in New York but now, in an interview with David Maraniss for a biography, he claims…it happened but…Not with Cook and not in New York…
“That was not her. That was an example of compression I was very sensitive in my book not to write about my girlfriends, partly out of respect for them. So that was a consideration. I thought that [the anecdote involving the reaction of a white girlfriend to the angry black play] was a useful theme to make about sort of the interactions that I had in the relationships with white girlfriends. And so, that occupies, what, two paragraphs in the book? My attitude was it would be dishonest for me not to touch on that at all … so that was an example of sort of editorially how do I figure that out?”
This really provides great insight to the fool on the hill.
In HIS warped mind, It would have been DISHONEST not to touch on the topic but it was perfectly HONEST to lie about who it happened with, where it happened and make up a fictionalized account of the conversation that apparently, never occurred.
That is what passes for HONESTY to Obama.
Liberal/socialists will say this is much ado about nothing and it’s true that politicians have been talking out of both sides of their mouths from both sides of the aisle since politicians, mouths and aisles were invented but, it is up to us, as voters, when we catch them at it, to do something about it.
Nixon lied about Watergate and it cost him the presidency.
Bush 41 said “Read my lips” and was not reelected because of it.
Clinton pointed his finger and told us he didn’t and that got him impeached regardless of the definition of the word “Is.”
Anthony Weiner said he wasn’t the peter tweeter. How did THAT work out for HIM?
From “Change You Can Believe In” to “Obamacare will let you keep your own doctor” to “I went after bin Laden” this guy has told lie upon lie upon more lies and now we see that the book he supposedly wrote, his autobiography, contains fabrications.
Does the fabricated girlfriend matter? ...YOU BET!
