16 Revelations about a Young Barack Obama from His Ex Girlfriends! (via BuzzFeed)
From the VanityFair article, excerpting “juicy” quotes from an upcoming book by David Maraniss – Becoming Obama….
On who the President’s ex girlfriend, Geneieve Cook always thought Barack Obama’s ideal woman was:
“I can’t help thinking that what he would really want, be powerfully drawn to, was a woman, very strong, very upright, a fighter, a laugher, well-experienced—a black woman I keep seeing her as.”
Barack’s response to Cook when she told him she loved him…smooth Operator, or did he simply not want to hurt her feelings?
How Barack “closed the deal” – Cook recounts what happened after her first date with Obama:
“I’m pretty sure we had dinner maybe the Wednesday after. I think maybe he cooked me dinner. Then we went and talked in his bedroom. And then I spent the night. It all felt very inevitable.”
Whaa?? Using Poetry and big SAT words to Woo the Ladies?
“I haven’t read ‘The Waste Land’ for a year, and I never did bother to check all the footnotes. But I will hazard these statements — Eliot contains the same ecstatic vision which runs from Münzer to Yeats. However, he retains a grounding in the social reality/order of his time. Facing what he perceives as a choice between ecstatic chaos and lifeless mechanistic order, he accedes to maintaining a separation of asexual purity and brutal sexual reality.”
