Was President Obama bullied as a child, as he claimed in a 2011 White House speech -- or was he the bully? This 6-minute clip arranges video of comments by President Obama in 2011 and 2012, and audio of his 1995 memoir, "Dreams from My Father" (read by him), which show that:
(1) Obama's 2011 claim he was bullied as a child is contradicted by his memoir, in which Obama said he was treated no worse than other "misfits," and the only classmate who was ostracized was a fat nerdy black girl named Coretta; and
(2) Obama confessed in his 1995 memoir that as a child he bullied Coretta (using the definition of "bully" adopted by Obama in his 2011 White House speech, which includes shoving).
