Bill Ayers has once again suggested he was the author of Barack Obama's celebrated autobiography, even though the admission could be explained away as a mocking irony designed only to goad Ayers's critics by yet another false admission he was the president's ghostwriter.
At the conclusion of a speech sponsored by the Students for a Democratic Society at Montclair State University in New Jersey, the former Weather Underground bomber gleefully claimed credit for writing Obama's "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance."
As shown in a video clip on YouTube, Ayers responding to a question about "Dreams," said, "Did you know that I wrote it, incidentally?"

Here is the transcript of the exchange between Ayers and a member of the audience asking about "Dreams":
Bill Ayers: One more, one more (question)
Question: Thank you sir, thank you, thank you. Time magazine columnist Joe Klein wrote that President Obama's book, "Dreams from My Father," quote: "may be the best written memoir ever produced by an American politician."
Ayers: I agree with that.
Question: What is your opinion of Barack Obama's style as a writer and uh
Ayers: I think the book is very good, the second book ("The Audacity of Hope") is more of a political hack book, but uh, the first book is quite good.
Question: Also, you just mentioned the Pentagon and Tomahawk
Ayers: Did you know that I wrote it, incidentally?
Question: What's that?
Ayers: I wrote that book.
Several audience members: Yeah, we know that.
Question: You wrote that?
Ayers: Yeah, yeah. And if you help me prove it, Ill split the royalties with you. Thank you very much.
Laughter and Applause...

Lands, I think sometimes I’m living in the Twilight Zone where they allow scum such as this on campus. Also, to even have a DS on campus. This is communism.
Why didn't Klein say "ever written" rather than "ever produced"?
I remember an interview of a woman who met Ayers in an airport Starbucks.
He boasted to her that he wrote Dreams of My Father.
A few years ago, I read an account of Obambie being sent to
Bali for a vacation and to relax.
He was given the most sophisticated version of a portable
typewriter at the time, with the idea that he would write something creative.
The story goes that he lugged it up and down the beach all day, but never wrote a single word.
No wonder that his entire life’s history, as well as his birth certificate, is kept under lock and key.
Ayers thinks he can tell the truth and make everyone think he was telling a joke. What a joker he is. I bet he jokes about that time his bomb killed San Francisco Police Officer Brian V. McDonnell. Ayers fingerprints were found in a Weather Underground bomb factory discovered by the FBI in San Francisco in 1971. The Phoenix Task Force is making progress towards wiping that grin off Ayers’ face.
why am I NOT surprised?
