Holy Cow! Bill Ayers DID Help Write Obama's Dreams From My Father
The Lid/Hannity/American Thinker ^ | 9/23/09 | The Lid

Posted on 09/23/2009 5:43:26 PM PDT by Shellybenoit

I have always put the people who said that domestic terrorist Bill Ayers helped to write President Obama's book Dreams From My Father in the same category as "truthers." I was wrong and I apologize.

In the new book, "Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage,Journalist Christopher Andersen has blown a huge hole in the story that Obama wrote the book alone.

Relying on inside sources Andersen describes how "Dreams" came to be published. Anderson says that Obama had a bad case of writers block and after three years decided that he could not honor deliver the book and would have to repay the $150,000 Simon & Schuster had given him. The problem was the future President had spent $75,000 of the advance. In 1993, the publisher canceled the contract but let Obama keep the money after he plead poverty due to "massive student loan debt."

Jack Cashill established to a 99.999999999% certainty that Ayers WROTE (not helped with) dreams months ago.

Cashill’s arguments proved to me that Ayers wrote that thing for Obama.

For the record, Barack Obama arranged to have his autobiography written by a revolutionary, a communist, and a murderer and lied about it.

It sounds like the author of this book just took stuff others have been saying for months.

Cashill is a genius.

Not just that he was the first to expose the Obama/Ayers book connections.

But his work on the TWA 800 coverup is also phenomenal.

The evidence was there all along in passages of the the text of the book Obama claimed to pen, references to experiences Ayers had but Obama had not .... and the children of the unrepentant terrorist criminal Ayers were much older and never went to school with the Obama kids.

Obama has that congenital need to deceive others that is rampant on the left. He lies.

I enjoy many of the Lid’s posts so I visited the site for the first time. There is an ad suggesting no links to LGF but further down is a link to LGF...but no link to FreeRepublic?

Also Jack Cashill presented this months ago.

WTF is Simon & Schuster giving him a $150K advance for in 1993? He was in just out of Harvard at the time. Inquiring minds want to know...

—Obama was the original Journalist bailout recipient. No wonder he sympathizes with the other self-absorbed deceivers in the media and might flip them some taxpayer earnings.

I always wonder the same thing...everyone else has to market their own books, go on a signing tour etc...and politicians all seem to get huge advances for their “memoirs”. I would love to see how many units of his book were purchased. Who purchased them?

We are right about the natural born citizen issue too. Obama is illegally holding that office.

Here’s the way I look at it.

Writing a book is hard work.

Obama has never worked hard in his life. He didn’t write the book.

Not that my opinion of him could drop much further, but it fell through the floor tonight. In my mind he stole $150,000 from Simon and Schuster. He signed a contract and didn’t deliver, then when asked for the money he came up with some lame arse excuse.

What a scumbag.

I’ve written books, just starting to write another. It takes a loooong time to get your rhythm down, and yes it is hard work to do it right. The idea that Obama wrote that book right out of the box is just ludicrous.

They are in the same category as Truthers. That category being right.
And you will realize that if our court system will ever allow a hearing on the merits.

Oh, and so much for the MSM belittling Palin for working with a ghostwriter: Palin was honest and gracious enough to admit it up front. And Palin’s ghostwriter isn’t a criminal communist revolutionary.

Kind of makes you wonder just whose idea it was to write the books in the first place and why.

He then lied about being friends with the guy.

And we are supposed to call him President.
