Barack Obama: President of Replicants
Janine Turner takes us inside the president's world of composite girlfriends, fake women and inconvenient detail.

President Barack Obama lives in a pretend world. He sees things through the eye of a kaleidoscope, and all of the pretty pieces of glass are his “composites.” He peers through his illusionary tool at his “composite people” and plays with the frailties of life. As the shattered flecks, or figures, morph into his fantasies, he envisions his life, the lives of others, and the governing of the America people as shapes and variations that mirror his own private, pervasive, and persistent ideals — regardless of reality or reason.
It is Obama’s world.
He is bothered when conflicts interfere with his “compositeland,” like Congress, Supreme Court rulings, or old girlfriends. He is bothered with details that hinder him, such as budgets, constitutional principles, and realities that people are unique and savvy and that one size does not fit all.
Obama’s “composite women” are in the news: His girlfriend mentioned in his biography was actually a mix of several women, as is his campaign’s “Juila.”
According to Obama, in his book Dreams from My Father he writes about his New York girlfriend in a disclosed “composite” fashion. She is a compilation of all of his girlfriends to represent a certain time period in his life. This yields the question: How do we know a man if he only reveals his life in vague and composite forms?
Who is the real Barack Obama?
Not only is Barack Obama a mystery, but so is the basis of his governing. Currently, he is proposing to the American women, whose votes he desperately needs to win, that he will govern them on the basis of his composite woman “Julia.” Life will be like the glasses of his kaleidoscope, beautiful and transfixed. Vote for Obama and your life will be like Julia’s.
Perfection works in the realm of make-believe. If you are a Replicant, as in the movie Blade Runner, or an imaginary “Julia,” you can be blessed by Obama’s world. Replicants and Julias are blank sheets of paper on which Obama can write his manifesto.
In reality, however, women have feelings, spirits, complexities, and inborn American yearnings for self-determination. Turning women into cookie cutter images doesn’t work any better now than it did in the days when Communism in the USSR attempted the homogenization of the human soul and mind. Communism leads to tragedy and demise, cruelty, and bitterness, recently reflected in the cries from Chinese rights activist Chen Guangcheng for asylum in America.
Yet Obama paints an ideal world where the “wealth is spread around,” the taxpayers foot Julia’s bill, and the end goal for women is to volunteer in the community garden. The “Julia” manifesto presents picture perfect scenarios. There is no mention that Julia spends her life dependent on the government.
Under President Obama: Julia is enrolled in a Head Start program to help get her ready for school. Because of steps President Obama has taken to improve programs like this one, Julia joins thousands of students across the country who will start kindergarten ready to learn and succeed.
There is no mention that some tenured teachers are contributing to the demise of the American education system. There is no mention that Obama will never stand up to the unions.
