Forward Into the Past




Though Dreams From My Father is an autobiography, and hence non-fiction, Obama makes no mention of this “compression,” nor is their any note by the publisher, Broadway Books. In fact, Obama only acknowledged the “compression” after [reporter David] Maraniss learned that [former Obama girlfriend Genevieve] Cook had no recollection of some of the events at which Obama said she was present.

Dreams from My Father, introduction, first edition:

For the sake of compression, some of the characters that appear are composites of people I’ve known, and some events appear out of precise chronology. With the exception of my family and a handful of public figures, the names of most characters have been changed for the sake of privacy.

If the next six months are going to be like this, well, we’re all for it. Beats talking about the economy.

It’s just as well that compared to 2008 that now I A) have calmed down and B) am no longer blogging, otherwise I would have an aneurysm by July of this year from all of this shit.
