Writing for the New York Times, legendary lefty Maureen Dowd bemoans the fall of the golden child – oh, how the mighty have fallen.
The president who started off with such dazzle now seems incapable of stimulating either the economy or the voters. His campaign is offering Obama 2012 car magnets for a donation of $10; cat collars reading “I Meow for Michelle” for $12; an Obama grill spatula for $40, and discounted hoodies and T-shirts. How the mighty have fallen.
His New York girlfriend, Genevieve Cook, told [David] Maraniss [author of “Barack Obama: The Story” ] that Obama confessed to her that “he felt like an impostor. Because he was so white. There was hardly a black bone in his body.” ….[Obama] said he ‘wanted to get out of the corporate world he found so distasteful — he described himself as “a spy behind enemy lines” — and reimagine himself as a politician.’
He was in the corporate world? Barack OBAMA??? Girlfriend? Barack OBAMA??? Maybe this means he’s going to run as a white candidate this go ‘round.
