For Obama, working for the corporate 'enemy' had one perk: a composite secretary

Hey, lots of guys have secretary fantasies. They just don’t tell the world about them.

In “Dreams from My Father,” President Obama wrote about having his “own secretary” during his embarrassing days as a corporate sellout. One problem: like his composite girlfriend, the secretary wasn’t so much an actual secretary as a figment of his overactive imagination.

After getting a promotion, Obama wrote, “I had my own office, my own secretary, money in the bank. Sometimes, coming out of an interview with Japanese financiers or German bond traders, I would catch my reflection in the elevator doors — see myself in a suit and tie, a briefcase in hand — and for a split second I would imagine myself as a captain of industry, barking out orders, closing the deal, before I remembered who it was that I had told myself I wanted to be and felt pangs of guilt for my lack of resolve.”

Maraniss discovered most of that wasn’t true; while Obama did have a tiny office, he didn’t have his own secretary, didn’t meet with financiers and bond traders, didn’t even wear a suit to work. But the one true thing in that passage is Obama’s antipathy for the business world.

A made-up secretary? And Mitt Romney is “out of touch”? It seems everything about the Fantasizer in Chief is shovel ready.

The good news is, we now know how the president calculates “jobs saved or created.” He needs only to close his eyes and dream jobs into existence. A few million more composite secretaries and the private sector will be “doing fine.”

Apparently Obama’s secretary fantasies were the only thing that saved him from the brutal drudgery of “working for the enemy.”

Obama’s not fond of the corporate world? Who’d a thunk it?

Understatement of the week. There’s a whole lotta something to it.

    Just like when he said he never knew Bill Ayers in 2008. What a lie that was and yet to this day the mainstream media doesn’t call him on it, even though Obama launched his first campaign in Ayers’ house. I never trusted this fraud in 2008 and the last four years only proved that I was right. I’m sure there are A LOT of Americans out there that feel the same way I do. All we now have to do is vote this bum out of office in November.

    He likes to make up people. That ‘Julia’ or whatever that fake person he made up to show how great his policies are and now this secretary.

      Unfortunately, Obama is ‘playing’ POTUS while the position is still empty.

    Let’s back up a second…was there anything in Dear Leader’s book that was true…?

    • beefrank

      Let’s back up another step…is there anything regarding the One that is true? Besides the 100 rounds of golf, additional $5T in debt…

    For years i have been saying that Obama is fairly bright and glib, but is however the most mentally ill person ever to hold the Presidency.
    He lives in a world of total self-fabrication. It is amazing that he isn’t more totally incompetent than he has proven to be.

    Now, now, Byron. I believe he held down a customer service job at Baskin-Robbins — for a couple of days. Let’s be fair.
