President Obama Ex-Girlfriend Kept A Diary…Uh-Oh!

Before President Obama fell in love with First Lady Michelle Obama he dated a few “other” girls, Alex McNear and Genevieve Cook. Through personal letters written by McNear, and a journal kept by Cook, we get another look at President Obama in his early years. I can tell you now, the affection he has for the FLOTUS is genuine, because the other girls were desperately searching for a deeper connection with the President, who often seemed kind, but distance and cold.

But I feel that you carefully filter everything in your mind and heart—legitimate, admirable, really—a strength, a necessity in terms of some kind of integrity. But there’s something also there of smoothed veneer, of guardedness … but I’m still left with this feeling of … a bit of a wall—the veil.  Barack—still intrigues me, but so much going on beneath the surface, out of reach. Guarded, controlled.

 President Obama Ex Girlfriend Kept A Diary...Uh Oh!

But there was also a good side to the relationship… Writer David Maraniss in an article on Vanity Fair, tracks down President Obama’s ex- girlfriends for a new biography,  Barack Obama: The Story. David Maraniss also promises to provide pictures of President Obama with ex-girlfriend Genevieve Cook when the book is released in June. Until then here are few excerpts:

From the diary of Genevieve Cook (Girlfriend #2):

What a startling person Barack is—so strange to voice intimations of my own perceptions—have them heard, responded to so on the sleeve. A sadness, in a way, that we are both so questioning that original bliss is dissipated—but feels really good not to be faltering behind some façade—to not feel that doubt must be silenced and transmuted into distance.

How is he so old already, at the age of 22? I have to recognize (despite play of wry and mocking smile on lips) that I find his thereness very threatening…. Distance, distance, distance, and wariness.

Despite Barack’s having talked of drawing a circle around the tender in him—protecting the ability to feel innocence and springborn—I think he also fights against showing it to others, to me. I really like him more and more—he may worry about posturing and void inside but he is a brimming and integrated character.

Today, for the first time, Barack sat on the edge of the bed—dressed—blue jeans and luscious ladies on his chest [a comfy T-shirt depicting buxom women], the end of the front section of the Sunday Times in his hand, looking out the window, and the quality of light reflected from his eyes, windows of the soul, heart, and mind, was so clear, so unmasked, his eyes narrower than he usually holds them looking out the window, usually too aware of me.

The sexual warmth is definitely there—but the rest of it has sharp edges and I’m finding it all unsettling and finding myself wanting to withdraw from it all. I have to admit that I am feeling anger at him for some reason, multi-stranded reasons. His warmth can be deceptive. Tho he speaks sweet words and can be open and trusting, there is also that coolness—and I begin to have an inkling of some things about him that could get to me.

  1. Oh boy, so what ! They couldn’t find any dirt about any extra marital affairs and you know they’ve been turning over every rock in the universe to do that so they hunted down these thirsty women to get some dirt on Mr. Obama.

    Politics is the worst.

    • They can try, but they keep hitting dead ends. Nothing juicy or sensational here. Now they can stop pretending that his past is a lie. Just acknowledge the fact that he is American and he attended college in America, and that there are many people from his past that knows and remember him. All of them describe him honest and intelligent. Sure they will try to dig out the negative, but there isn’t much to extract. He didn’t have a connection with these women, even though he was faithful, because he was waiting for his soul-mate, Michelle Obama.

  2. Really!!!!!! Get a life and leave President Obama and his family alone. People are so stupid these days that they make themselves look like a big-headed FOOL!!!!!!

    • This is actually a positive thing because now all those people on the right that think he came over from the boat are seeing that his stories check out. They have desperately been trying to find dirt, and person after person describes him as honorable and intelligent.

  3. If they had any real dirt on President Obama it would have come out when he ran for president back in 2008. Sorry Genevieve, you were no Michelle. Everything came full circle when he found his black queen!

  4. When I heard about this before I knew I blurted out. You couldn’t figure him out because you were not the f’in ONE! lol I can attest to this me and my husband had an almost big break up b/c I could not understand him but I cracked the code and he and I knew were were meant to be. So all this talk these ex’s are doing is just lip service. Michelle know what the deal is with Barack. She knows everything these women could never figure out.
