Genevieve Cook, an ex-girlfriend of President Obama, shares some intimate details about their relationship in a new book about the Commander-in-Chief.

Barack Obama: The Story, by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist David Maraniss, is the most thorough account of the President's life not written by Obama.

Vanity Fair published excerpts Wednesday. While The Story contains no sordid, shocking tales of impropriety, it portrays Obama as extremely ambitious.

Obama's autobiography Dreams From My Father, while generally true, makes him look less calculating and motivated by his own career, in other words.

Barack Obama: The Story also goes into much greater detail about his early life, including romantic relationships, such as that with Genevieve Cook.

Using Obama’s writings and ex-girlfriends’ diaries, Maraniss paints a picture of Obama as an intense, conflicted and sometimes brooding intellectual.

It was that intelligence that drew Cook to Obama after a chance meeting at that East Village apartment gathering, according to Maraniss' book.

The future President, who in 1983 was a recent graduate of Columbia University, began chatting up the assistant teacher at a party that Christmas.

Obama apparently earned Cook’s endorsement, as they went on a date just days later and she spent that night at his tiny Manhattan apartment.

While sitting on an orange beanbag chair, the two bonded over the time each spent in Indonesia as youths, then exchanged phone numbers.

If political pundits think President Obama's only strategy to win a second term would be to carpet bomb Mitt Romney with negative ads, he didn't get the memo.

Romney has but one brief, silent cameo in the Obama campaign's new seven-minute ad, touting the controversial administration's record over the past three years.

The ad does go out of its way to portray Republican leaders, in general, as obstructionist extremists who would rather play political games than help Americans.

For the most part, though, the ad, entitled "Forward," hits home the fact that Obama inherited "once-in-a-century type" recession and still accomplished a ton.

Pure spin? Pure facts? In between? Take a look at it below and see:

Mr. President, Salaam.

That's how Jimmy Kimmel kicked off his hilarious 25-minute speech at last night's White House Correspondents Dinner, an annual event that brings reporters together with celebrities and features a humor-based segment by both an emcee and the President himself.

You can follow this link to watch Obama lay into Mitt Romney, Donald Trump and even himself - and then you can check out the following video to see Kimmel go off on Sofia Vergara's cleavage; Obama's ears; the Kardashians; the Secret Service scandal and much more.

Enjoy!

With political, media and entertainment A-listers in attendance, President Obama wasted no time bringing the laughs at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The annual event last night gave Obama a chance to lighten the mood in a heated election year, though presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney still a target.

“It’s nice to be here in the nice, vast Hilton ballroom. Or as Mitt Romney would call it, a fixer-upper,” Obama said of his rival, who is often labeled elitist.

“We both have degrees from Harvard," he said, noting that the politicians do have some things in common. "I have one, he has two ... what a snob!”

Obama got plenty of mileage out of the "dog wars" between the respective camps, running an entire fake ad from the WOOF-PAC in "support" of Mitt.

Nor could the president resist poking fun at another one-time "rival."

Referencing his address at the 2011 dinner, where he bashed Donald Trump repeatedly just hours before Osama bin Laden was killed, Obama said that one year ago, he had “finally delivered justice to one of the world’s most notorious individuals.”

A photo of Trump was prominently displayed in the background.

University of Colorado student Madalyn Starkey posed for a photo with the President of the United States the other day ... possibly after a few too many drinks.

Traveling through Colorado Tuesday, Obama stopped in at a local pub known as The Sink, where the POTUS met many college students, including Starkey.

In the pic, Obama is grinning with his arm around her as the self-described "Professional Student" points her finger at the president in seeming disbelief:

Obama and College Student

Amid hundreds of shares and re-tweets, Starkey has been having fun with all the attention, saying "Woo, never knew a tweet could blow up like that. Neat!"

"Bet you wish you had taken me to prom now, huh?" she Tweeted at one follower.

The pic has taken off on social media sites like Instagram and Twitter ... almost as much as Obama slow jamming the news with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night.

Political views aside, needless to say, the Prez is the king of cool. Who wouldn't want to pose for a drunk photo with the guy and post it on Twitter?

President Barack Obama appeared on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon early this morning, taking part in the show's running bit called "slow jamming the news."

If you haven't seen it, the segment's name speaks for itself.

In front of a live college audience at the University of North Carolina, Obama talked about student loans while Fallon's house band the Roots jammed on a slow, sensual R&B beat, making the topic seem sexier than you ever thought possible:

With the rhythmic tunes accompanying him, Obama said, "What we said is simple: Now is not the time to make school more expensive for our young people."

Fallon then added (in his best Barry White voice), "Awww, yeah. You should listen to the president. Or as I like to call him, the Preezy of the United Steezy."

"Things are heating up inside Congress' chambers behind those closed doors."

We don't even know what that means, but the "POTUS with the most-est" needs to bring the Roots with him and deliver campaign speeches this way more often.

Mitt Romney wouldn't stand a chance.

Jon Lovitz is apparently not a fan of President Obama.

The former Saturday Night Live star didn't exactly go Ted Nugent on Barack, but he did make some strong feelings known on his recent podcast, "The ABC's Of SNL."

In a clip first highlighted by Breitbart TV, Lovitz jokes that Obama is "a f--king a$$hole" for "saying the rich don't pay their taxes." Tell us how you really feel, Jon!

The comedian went on to explain that Obama "is the perfect example" of what can go wrong with government: "He's amazing. He had nothing. He had no father."

"He was, you know, of mixed race which is a burden in the United, don't kid yourself, you know, growing up like that, and no money, and the guy ends up being at Harvard."

"He's the President of the United States. And now he's like, fuck me!"

"If I make a dollar and out of every dollar I'm taxed at 50, half, at 50 cents, I have to give, isn't that like enough?" asked Lovitz. He continued, "It's half. HALF?!"

It's unclear whether Lovitz's comments were sincere or in jest ... or a little of both. The rant occurred this January, though the podcast itself was just released.

Victoria Jackson is perhaps the President's most outspoken critic among SNL alumni, often calling Obama a communist. Yeah. Nothing in jest about that.

Ted Nugent will not face any criminal charges for his rant earlier this week against Barack Obama.

Threatening the President is against the law, of course, and the musician was forced to meet with the Secret Service after relaying a metaphor to attendees at a NRA convention that concluded with:

"If the coyote's in your living room, pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."

"The Secret Service interview of Ted Nugent has been completed," spokesman Brian Leary told Yahoo News. "The issue has been resolved. The Secret Service does not anticipate any further action."

Well, not that kind of action at least... if you know what we mean!

Appearing prior to the meeting on Glenn Beck's radio show (above video), Nugent said:

"The bottom line is I've never threatened anybody's life in my life. I don't threaten, I don't waste breath threatening. I just conduct myself as a dedicated 'We the people' activist because I've saluted too many flag-draped coffins to not appreciate where the freedom comes from."

Mitt Romney's campaign is fighting back in the War on Dogs, excerpting a passage from President Obama's memoir in which he admits eating one as a kid.

The Daily Caller's Jim Treacher wrote a blog post with an excerpt from Dreams From My Father in which Obama writes of eating dog as a boy in Indonesia.

"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)," writes Obama.

Romney, Obama

Treacher brought out the excerpt as a way of responding to a very odd, old story that has haunted Romney since the Boston Globe first reported it in 2007.

The story goes like this: In 1983, Romney strapped the family dog's crate to the roof of the car for a 12-hour drive from Massachusetts to Canada.

On the trip, the dog, an Irish Setter named Seamus, suffered the "runs," as Ann Romney put it this week. Her husband coolly pulled over to hose off the dog and the car, then kept driving, with the dog back in the crate on the roof.

It's safe to say Ted Nugent has no regrets.

The conservative guitarist appeared on Dana Loesch's radio show and addressed his controversial rant against Barack Obama at a NRA convention over the weekend.

"I'm a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally," Nugent told the host of the backlash coming his way, including talk of a Secret Service investigation.

"And there are some power-abusing, corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth."

Did Nugent threaten the President's life? No, he says he's "incapable" of such an action and labeled himself "Mother Teresa with a guitar" compared to the machinations of Federal Government employees. Listen for yourself:
