Feast your eyes on this; beware of the steam emanating off the page!

The letters between McNear and Obama centered around philosophy and literature.

“Remember how I said there’s a certain kind of conservatism which I respect more than bourgeois liberalism — [T.S.] Eliot is of this type,” Obama wrote in one letter to McNear. “Of course, the dichotomy he maintains is reactionary, but it’s due to a deep fatalism, not ignorance. And this fatalism is born out of the relation between fertility and death, which I touched on in my last letter — life feeds on itself. A fatalism I share with the western tradition at times. You seem surprised at Eliot’s irreconcilable ambivalence; don’t you share this ambivalence yourself, Alex?”

Hot? How existential of him! Even his alleged “love letters” are pretentious.

No word yet if the letters were to real women or his usual “composite” girlfriends. President Obama makes stuff up? Who would have thunk it?! It totally happened in band camp. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

One of the more mysterious characters from President Obama’s 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father is the so-called ‘New York girlfriend.’ Obama never referred to her by name, or even by psuedonym, but he describes her appearance, her voice, and her mannerisms in specific detail.

But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the ‘New York girlfriend’ was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago.

Also no word on whether the “composite girlfriend” is actually Obama himself.

Of course, the letters are now being pegged as a “dog whistle” for racists!!!111

But the sane see it as a whistle to mock. Because, hilarious. Mock. Mock like the wind!

At least “Dreams from my Father” is finally being looked at (thanks to Jim Treacher) after years of just fawning obedience from the press.

Had they paid attention to any of it earlier, they would have known the “composite girlfriend” story ages ago.

https://twitter.com/#!/DylanByers/statuses/197746085324783617

As usual, the press just took anything Obama said as gospel without question. It’s in his book? It must be totally true and not manufactured made-up nonsense!

UPDATE: In the reissue of “Dreams from My Father,” Obama writes in the introduction that “some of the characters that appear are composites of people I’ve known.”

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this blog post stated that Obama had acknolwedged using composite characters in the reissue. In fact, Obama acknolwedged the use of composite characters in the first edition of the book.

Seems like this should have been an issue before, say, during the 2008 election? Instead of just swoonily quoting from it and gushing.

Hey, it’s a start. Happy warriors can take up the slack, as usual.

      We only know abbout one: Valery Baker was sent to an embassy in the Carribbean and is ex-communicado. And all of the pre-Michelle gfs mysteriously disappeared. Nobody can find them or talk to them. I’m not saying that Obama’s people snuffed them off. Most likely just setted them up with jobs and hush money.

    Young Mr. Obama’s love letters to his composite girlfriend were not about T.S. Eliot but about a composite conservative writer.

    If Obama had had a girlfriend, she would have looked like his composite girlfriend.

    Calling Jack Cashill.  Another sign of the stagecraft that “Dreams From My Father” is.

    When asked, Barack actually said that his girlfriend was “compressed” (he meant ‘a composite’) of several imaginary women. Probably the same women that rent unused space in Bill Ayers’ occipital lobe. 

  • Daniel Schwartz

    There are many interesting theories about Obama’s past girlfriends, and why they’re as hard to find as his college transcripts.

    Here’s an angle you might not have considered.  Read through the comments; they’re worth your while.

       Where does Mr. Love figure in all this?

  • rbeccah

    So the New York Girlfriend is actually a composite of different people?  Isn’t that the same thing as “fictional”?

  • Billy___Bob

    “Construction of the composite was originally performed by a trained artist, through drawing, sketching, or painting, in consultation with a witness or crime victim.”

    If you plan to use composite to refer to your “girlfriends” does that mean you think they were criminals.

    Or was it just going out with a girl that you thought was criminal …

    When I read these letters from his girfriend, it took about five seconds before it struck me that I was reading same Bill Ayers’ ghostwritten garbage that has been surrounding Obama since the beginning.  What a fraud!

    The “girlfriend” is probably a “composite” of Barry’s BOYFRIENDS, you know, like those murdered dead gay ex-lovers who were coincidentally assassinated just before Obama got the DNC nomination in 2008 (there were two who were executed and a third who died of AIDS at about that same time).

  • Frank Wv

    Obama is a composite.Sometimes he is a wannabee Lincoln.Sometimes he is wannabee JFK.Sometimes he is a wannabee MLK.Sometimes he is the wannabee preacher man.Sometimes he is a wannabee jock.Sometimes he is a  wannabee commedian. I get the impression he doesn’t have a sincere bone in his body.  Let’s face it, our President is just NOT real.He is a fake. He is a pretender.

  • massjim

    Having a composite girlfriend means “never having to say your sorry”. The real question is how many more imaginary friends is Obama carrying around in his head. Does that explain those voices he apparently hears, or is he fully aware of the lies he tells.
