[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cl-Mar0PGc]David Maraniss on Obama mythology - YouTube[/ame] The mythologies range from early on when, for instance, in high school in his memoir he says that he wasn't a starter on his basketball team because he "played black" and the coach "coached white." Of course I discovered that, in fact, Barack Obama was about the eighth or ninth best player on that team, that he was one of the few players who couldn't dunk the ball. So it had nothing to do with race. Everything in his book is seen through the lens of race, and that sometimes distorts things. Like the girlfriend that he writes about in his memoir in New York City, he sort of defines her through the lens of race as a white woman who didn't understand the anger of black people. The real girlfriend, who was Genevieve Cook, had a completely different perspective on race. There is less known about the current man occupying the Oval Office than anyone before him. The inconsistencies and pure fabrications of his past are astounding. The same mental midgets that screamed daily for eight years about Prescot Bush and Nazi connections--constantly digging through historical records in a desperate search for anything that would damage Bush including his college records--these same people NOW defend a president shrouded utter secrecy Obama won't even release his college transcripts. Dan Rather lost his job and what little credibility he had because he was so overjoyed to report a story that would damage Bush. Could you imagine if the media would scrutinize Obama the same way? Well this isn't 2008, and the vetting of Obama has been underway for over three years. Obama's entire narrative is going to be revealed for what it is, a lie.
