A year ago, I wrote:
The story in Obama’s memoir about how he arrived in Manhattan with no money and no place to live seems rather weird. Wouldn’t Columbia make sure a promising affirmative action admit would have a dorm room? I’ve attended several colleges, and never was there not a place for me to live. I suspect that Obama just made that up to make the memoir more interesting. In reality, people’s lives are boring. I suspect that most of the best memoirs are works of fiction.
It looks like I was right about Obama making stuff up in his memoir. It was revealed today that Obama fabricated a description of his girlfriend in New York.
There’s no evidence yet that he lied about his arrival in Manhattan, but we now have to assume that anything in his memoir that doesn’t sound right is probably because Obama made it up.
