Color me very impressed. Last year, Jack Cashill’s textual analysis of Dreams From My Father, Obama’s purported autobiography, led him to conclude it was written by Bill Ayers. Last week, a new Obama biography by Christopher Anderson appeared to support that claim, and now Bill Ayers reportedly confirmed it to Ann Leary of Back Yard Conservative.
“That’s what I do, education,” he said. “You shouldn’t believe everything you hear about me… You know nothing about me.”
To which she responded, “I said, I know plenty–I’m from Chicago, a conservative blogger, and I’ll post this.”
I bet his heart skipped a beat on that one.
But he didn’t scowl, and didn’t run off as he has been known to do. Instead, unprompted, he blurted out: “I wrote ‘Dreams From My Father… Michelle asked me to.” Then he added “And if you can prove it we can split the royalties.”
Anne responded, “Stop pulling my leg!”
But he repeated insistently, “I wrote it, the wording was similar [to Ayers’ other writing.]”
Anne responded, “I believe you probably heavily edited it.”
Ayers stated firmly, “I wrote it.”
Anne ended the conversation by saying “why would I believe you? You’re a liar.”
I don’t know if Ayers wrote it or not, but I’m entirely confident that Obama didn’t. Very few politicians and public figures write their own books, and Obama is far too much of an empty suit to have written the two that have his name on them. The only thing that’s credible about it is the narcissism involved in “writing” two autobiographies when he hadn’t accomplished a damn thing.
