Pro-Obama Biographer Says Obama History Is Myth Not Truth

A new book is on shelves by pro Barack Obama author David Maraniss titled, "Barack Obama: The Story." Maraniss claims that the tale of his history, told by Obama during his 2008 candidacy, is not what really happened. According to Maraniss it is "received myth, not the truth."

Obama declared at the 2008 Democrat National Convention, speaking of Ann Dunham and Barack Obama, Sr., “Four years ago. I stood before you and told you my story – of the brief union between a young man from Kenya and a young woman from Kansas who weren’t well-off or well-known, but shared a belief that in America, their son could achieve whatever he put his mind to.”

However, Maraniss says that the couple shared barely anything. In fact, it seems so apparent that they shared next to nothing that Maraniss notes, "In the college life of Barack Obama in 1961 and 1962, as recounted by his friends and acquaintances in Honolulu, there was no Ann; there was no baby.”

Maraniss also writes of one of the senior Obama's friends, Kiri Tith, a Cambodian, who knew him "very well." Tith had also met Ann, but it was not through a relationship with Obama. Maraniss writes, “But he had no idea that Ann knew Obama, let alone got hapai (pregnant) by him, married him, and had a son with him.”

This is just a tidbit of information from Maraniss' book. Jack Cashill has even more information over at WND on the subject.

But the question arises time and again, why does Barack Obama lie about his past? This has happened over and over and over. When he is caught, there is no shame, no repentance and no coming forth or a word better used by Obama, transparency. There is not a shred of transparency with Barack Obama. In fact, he is unwilling to release any documents pertaining to much of his life.

While we can speculate as to the reasons, and we have for a long time, we cannot know for sure unless the documents were made available to the public. This does not mean that we should just be quiet about it though. As the old saying goes, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease." Hopefully, someone is listening closely enough that those who have the ability to do something about it will.

    Another lie is that Obama is the son of Stanley Ann Dunham I knew here she never had any children didnt even want one rotten little brts she called them once. I was the stepson of here brother charles and madelyn Dunhams son and her brother Charles Dunham the 2nd and knew her first hand not just by reading about her like most

  • Paul Wilkes

    The DVD "Dreams from my REAL Father" presents a far more believable history of where Obama came from and why. I suggest you get a copy and share it with everyone you know. Although Obama was born in Hawaii and both of his parents were native born Americans, he is a Muslim Communist and, if he is re-elected, it will be the end of America.

      What in the world have you been drinking Paul Wilkes?

    What do you get when you cross a Hawaiian with an Indonesian and a Kenyan = No Birth Certificate.

    It would be nice if the article was truthful. Dave Maraniss also clearly states that Obama in his book states that he had taken some literary liscense with some of the facts for effect. It didn't change the the book, and the ideas from it. What Maraniss' book does do is tear down the Birther's argument of where he was born and follows him thru to college.

    • Doug Rodrigues

      "Tear down the Birther's argument?" With the overwhelming amount of circumstantial evidence pointing to NOT being born in the United States, had this been a criminal investigation Obama would have been behind bars long ago.

    • G. E. Kruckeberg

      "Birther" is a dysphemism for "someone who believes that the Constitution of the United States, including Article II Section 1, is the law of the land." What are we to think when the Pretendent (sic) of the United States offers a "birth certificate" that says he was born in 1961 IN A HOSPITAL THAT DIDN'T EXIST UNTIL 1978 and that was composed on a word processor that didn't exist in 1961?

    • Tim Brown

      literary license for effect with a biography? Seriously? That then ends up making it fiction, not non-fiction.

    A jack of all trades. (Master of none). Not real sure you are aware of the last part.
