Barack Obama's Wild College Days!
Back when he was a young pup, Barack Obama went to college. Some of his former classmates remember he was a supernice guy who stood up to menacing bums; others say he was aloof; and still others ask, "Barry who?" Such was the wonderful enigmatic palimpsest of Barack Obama back in the days when he wore "$5 military-surplus khakis and used leather jackets" and roomed with some guy who later became a loser due to his cocaine addiction.
Here are some other anecdotes from this fascinating AP article on Obama's misspent youth:
- "Not everyone who knew Obama in those years is eager to talk. Some explained that they feared inadvertently hurting Obama's campaign. ... several of those interviewed said the Pakistanis were reluctant to talk for fear of stoking rumors that Obama is a Muslim."
- "Carpenter recalled Obama as 'a good bodysurfer' who had 'a funky red car, a Fiat,' and who also played intramurals -- flag football, tennis and water polo."
- "He'd give me lectures, which I found very boring. He must have found me very irritating."
Obama, then as now: America's sanctimonious unicorn prick who likes bodysurfing.
