—Obama has admitted, he fabricated the New York girlfriend described in his book.
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.
Just out of curiosity, I think most people who have an ounce of critical thinking skills have to ask the most pressing question. What other things were actually composites in that book?
—So with the last story in the front of our minds, I guess it should come as no surprise when we read about Obama pushing a false GM recovery story.
The Obama camp can’t stop clucking about how he saved GM and the car industry. But if the GM bailout is such a success story, why can’t it pay back its debt to taxpayers?
Maybe it’s because the government doesn’t want paid back, so it keeps its interest in the corporation. Maybe this the plan for all businesses it can get its hands into, to influence and control.
Something to think about.
Draw your own conclusions from the data, but the interesting thing you will note is:
1. Indiana just became a “Right To Work” state and moved up one notch from last year.
2. Wisconsin saw the public employee unions lose a battle to keep its members from skating on paying for part of their own retirements and healthcare. Despite the pro-union rhetoric, like everyone else, they must contribute. As a result, the state moved up four notches from last year.
—Sadly, former NFL linebacker Junior Seau was found dead of a gunshot wound.
Some reports call it “an apparent suicide”. It sounds a little suspicious when we hear reports that the police checked the girlfriend’s (who found him) hands for gunpowder residue. But on the other hand, he did drive his car off a cliff awhile back, saying he fell asleep. If it was by his own hand, I have to wonder why such a drastic act to a smart young man who still had many years ahead of him and much more to give.
