When Obama was Barry Soetoro

(London Daily Mail) He had a pet ape named Tata, spent his evenings smoking pot and when he was in the third-grade wrote a paper about how he wanted to be President.

Biographer David Maraniss’s explosive book on the life of Barack Obama reveals a young President when he was just known as ‘Barry’.

The book, Barack Obama: The Story, will be on bookstores June 19, but leaked snippets reveal his sordid pot-smoking past, string of relationships with different women and his love of basketball.
