Girlfriend(s) emerge from Obama past – “She called him Bahr-ruck” with a trill

Well, I never.  Girls crawl out of obama’s past.  Not sure I believe it.  Something does not ring true somehow. Alex and Genevieve?

Obama was six months out of Columbia when Genevieve Cook came along and engaged him in the deepest romantic relationship of his young life. She called him Bahr-ruck, with the accent on the first syllable, and a trill of the r’s. Not Bear-ick, as the Anglophile Kenyans pronounced it, and not Buh-rock, as he would later be called, but Bahr-ruck. She said that is how he pronounced it himself, at least when talking to her…..http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/2012/06/young-barack-obama-in-love-david-maraniss

 [Looks a little bit like Fluke, doesn’t she?  Well, a whole lot like her] 

“She remembered how on Sundays Obama would lounge around, drinking coffee and solving the New York Times crossword puzzle, bare-chested, wearing a blue and white sarong.”  ( 🙂 )

Do you believe this?  Honestly?  Sounds like a cheap romance novel to me.  This is just a snippet, but the entire narrative sounds like that.

Interesting that all his friends were from PockySthan.  Hasan Chandoo, Wahid Hamid, Sohale Siddiqi, Beenu Mahmood.

I wonder what the strategy is, rolling this out at this time.

I don’t know, maybe it has something to do with this from the same period of time:

All things to all people, our Bahr-ruck.

Obama reads Psalms 46 at NYC 9/11/11 Memorial

I missed this yesterday.  Very strange indeed to hear him speak the words  “Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.”

Note 09.16.14, I see this video has been taken down but here’s a link to another

 I am assuming that he himself chose to read Psalm 46, but he does not seem all that comfortable reading it, with all the halts and the hisses at the end of words.

Yes, he did choose the Psalm himself.  Here’s his reason:

WASHINGTON–President Obama read Psalm 46 at the New York ceremony Sunday marking the tenth anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. Principal deputy press secretary Josh Earnest explained why Obama selected that psalm. “The President chose a scripture which he believed was most appropriate — he believed it was particularly appropriate to use — to read scripture this morning. And he chose a passage that talks of persevering through very difficult challenges and emerging from those challenges stronger,” Earnest said.http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2011/09/why_obama_picked_psalm_46_to_r.html

Alrighty then.  Now we know.  The People’s Cube weighs in:  http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples-blog/obama-is-god-t7794.html  Posted:  09.12.11 @ 9:57 a.m.

“He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”
