What about the other made-up girlfriend nobody talks about?

To the Editor:

— The press is busy with stories about Manti Te’o and his “girlfriend” — his athletic abilities seem to be trashed by the media.

The media was and is “hush-hush” about Obama’s composite girlfriend he created in “Dreams of My Father” The book compares girls he “dated” and their failings to meet his standards ... while he praises himself.

Could it be that Te’o admires Obama and wanted to follow his style ... or did the press decide to twist his story to please themselves?

Good luck, Manti Te’o. I hope to see you playing in the NFL next season.
