Interesting article about Obama's dishonesty. http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=ZmJhMzlmZWFhOTQ3YjUxMDE2YWY4ZDMzZjZlYTVmZmU=&w=MA== Yet we now know that this life story is chock full of fiction. Typical and disturbing, to take just one example, is the entirely fabricated account in Dreams from My Father of Obamaâs first job after college: Eventually a consulting house to multinational corporations agreed to hire me as a research assistant. Like a spy behind enemy lines, I arrived every day at my mid-Manhattan office and sat at my computer terminal, checking the Reuters machine that blinked bright emerald messages from across the globe. As far as I could tell I was the only black man in the company, a source of shame for me but a source of considerable pride for the companyâs secretarial pool. They treated me like a son, those black ladies; they told me how they expected me to run the company one day. . . . The company promoted me to the position of financial writer. I had my own office, my own secretary, money in the bank. Sometimes, coming out of an interview with Japanese financiers or German bond traders, I would catch my reflection in the elevator doors â see myself in a suit and tie, a briefcase in my hand â and for a split second I would imagine myself as a captain of industry, barking out orders, closing the deal, before I remembered who it was that I had told myself I wanted to be and felt pangs of guilt for my lack of resolve. . . . As the website Sweetness & Light details, this is bunk. Obama did not work at âa consulting house to multinational corporationsâ; it was, a then-colleague of his has related, âa small company that published newsletters on international business.â He wasnât the only black man in the company, and he didnât have an office, have a secretary, wear a suit and tie on the job, or conduct âinterviewsâ with âJapanese financiers or German bond tradersâ â he was a junior copyeditor.
