So maybe the woman was in Chicago? This is your "OMG OMG OMG the lie!.The Lies OMG OMG" moment?<quoted text>Do you really expect the biased media to extensively report Obama's many distortions the way they would have had it been Romney, Palin, Bush or McCain?
See in LibLand (like in Orwell's 1984), lies are called approximations.
"Mr. Obama was upfront in his memoir that dialogue in the book was “an approximation” and that some of the characters in his book had been compressed or combined. But the specifics had remained mostly unknown. In his book, Mr. Maraniss documents several of the efforts by Mr. Obama to invent or alter characters to help his narrative.
The most dramatic was that of Mr. Obama’s New York girlfriend. In the book by Mr. Maraniss, the president acknowledges that some of the events he describes as taking place with the New York girlfriend actually took place with another woman he dated in Chicago.
“Like many characters in the memoir, he introduced her to advance a theme, another thread of thought in his musings about race,” Mr. Maraniss writes in the book.
The book by Mr. Maraniss, who is also the author of a biography about Bill Clinton, is not the first effort by journalists to examine Mr. Obama’s telling of his own life story.
In 2008, Serge Kovaleski, a New York Times reporter, interviewed friends of Mr. Obama’s from college and high school who questioned the scenes in Mr. Obama’s memoir about smoking marijuana and trying cocaine as a youth.
“Friends, classmates and mentors from his high school and Occidental recalled Mr. Obama as being grounded, motivated and poised, someone who did not appear to be grappling with any drug problems and seemed to dabble only with marijuana,” Mr. Kovaleski wrote.
Mr. Maraniss offers a third view, describing Mr. Obama as part of a “choom gang,” a group of high school basketball buddies in Hawaii who frequently smoked marijuana.
Last year, a former New York Times reporter, Janny Scott, wrote a book that raised questions about Mr. Obama’s frequently mentioned story about his mother’s battles with insurance companies at the end of her life.
“I will never forget my own mother, as she fought cancer in her final months, having to worry about whether her insurance would refuse to pay for her treatment,” Mr. Obama said in 2009, as he campaigned for passage of his health care program.
Ms. Scott’s research suggested that Mr. Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, was covered by health insurance at the time, and was instead denied disability coverage that would have helped to pay expenses that were not covered by insurance.
Aides to Mr. Obama last year said the book confirmed the basic facts of the stories that the president told about his mother, including the health care expenses that she struggled to pay.
The campaign for president this year is unlikely to turn on questions about Mr. Obama’s memoir. Both presidential campaigns have said they believe the American people are focused on the country’s struggling economic fortunes."
Now you claim Obama lied about trying harder drugs? So, your source check with every friend? Or do you think maybe only a few knew.
Ann Dunham was covered.Obama never said she wasn't. I guess you never had to fight with insurance companies to get bills paid because claims were initially denied.
So that is all you had. What a joke.
