Skip to comments.Andersen Book Blows Ayers' Cover on 'Dreams' [OH MY GOD - CASHILL PWNS OBAMA & AYERS!!!]
Posted on 09/23/2009 7:06:54 PM PDT by Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo
In his new book, "Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage," Best-selling celebrity journalist, Christopher Andersen, has blown a huge hole in the Obama genius myth without intending to do so.
Relying on inside sources, quite possibly Michelle Obama herself, Andersen describes how Dreams came to be published -- just as I had envisioned it in my articles on the authorship of Dreams. With the deadline pressing, Michelle recommended that Barack seek advice from "his friend and Hyde Park neighbor Bill Ayers."
To flesh out his family history, Obama had taped interviews with various family members. Andersen writes, "These oral histories, along with a partial manuscript and a truckload of notes, were given to Ayers." Andersen quotes a Hyde Park neighbor, "Everyone knew they were friends and that they worked on various projects together. It was no secret. Why would it be? People liked them both."
Andersen continues, "In the end, Ayers's contribution to Barack's Dreams From My Father would be significant--so much so that the book's language, oddly specific references, literary devices, and themes would bear a jarring similarity to Ayers's own writing."
More to come!
And it will get exactly zero ink or air time!
Don’t be so sure. Rush and Beck and Levin might just run with this
If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one around, does it make a sound? I wonder how much the MSM will cover this.

Make enough noise, and they will have to.
PS: Tony, I'm glad you & the team saved Ziva.
LOL! Was Tony great in that episode or what!?
Ayres was just a neighbor.
John Wilson ,Liar
Obama is the greatest liar since P.T.Barnum.
Gibbs, did you give this newbie permission to post?
Oh just wait till that puke down at the “Southern Poverty Law Center” gits together a list of stuff that Cashill has written volumes about like our airliner being shot down over Long Island and a bunch of other excellent stuff like that. Then they’ll just “smear” the whey out of Jack and subject him to more ridicule than they have Senator McCarthy and the John Birch Society combined!!!
Hmm what ever happened to Milli Vanilli????
This is huge! A big chunk of 0bama’s creditability as an intelligent learned person comes from his mad book writing skills.
Cashill is a superstar.
Why is this so huge? People co-write books all the time.
Obama Gave Bill Ayers' Book a Rave Review
From the Chicago Sun Times, November 13, 2008:
Ayers: Obama was 'family friend'
New afterword to 2001 book, Ayers describes Barack Obama as 'family friend'
Obama, Ayers, and Farrakhan all live within 2 blocks of each other
From Investor's Business Daily (IBD), August 27, 2008:
"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.
One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.
The Annenberg papers are quite extensive 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

REVOLUTION: Voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA [Maoist]
[Revolution] Interview with Bill Ayers, Revolution #63, October 1, 2006:
"On Progressive Education, Critical Thinking and the Cowardice of Some in Dangerous Times"
From the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party (revcom.us or rwor.org) :
"Create Public Opinion, Seize Power: We are preparing minds and organizing forces for the time when there is a major crack in the system, whenever it comes and wherever it comes from: an opening that makes it possible to bring the future Revolutionary Army of the Proletariat (R.A.P.) into the field and wage a revolutionary armed struggle that actually has a chance of winning.
And we have said that building our party itself is the most important part of organizing forces for revolution. This is true now, and it is true looking forward to the creation of that future R.A.P. and the waging of that armed struggle.":
"This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who's a professor of English..."
The O'Reilly Factor confronts Bill Ayers:
October 24, 2008:
(note the red communist star on his shirt)
Thanks for posting this — made my evening! Welcome to FR!
“He was just a guy in my neighborhood.”
Gibbs produced the episode as well - which was pretty good. Is Harmon bucking for a Clint-like career?
Isn't that what the Democrat Party nominee to the office of President told us? "Just a guy", "who lives on my street". I heard it myself, even! Why, why, it can't be...
LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!
Well I understand that! I’m just sayin that that little puke will denigrate him even if Rush, Shawn and Mark and all the rest start bangin on this like I also hope they will!!!
With people they deny knowing?
This is hardly a big deal. Lots of celebs use ghost writers. It is not like his ties to Ayers were not known prior to the election or prior to now.
It did not matter last election. After seeing his behavior as president maybe Ayers, Rev. Wright etal will matter more in 2012. But other than that this confirms what we knew about his book and probably books.
I hope and pray that they do exactly that!
But do they lie about it?
That's a winning twofer - kudos!
look up to post 13
I think this is huge because Obama told America that Ayers was just a guy in the neighborhood, he had no associations with him. If they can draw this association and show again that Obama has problems with telling the truth, I think it would be very harmful to him.
During the election the left was screaming at anyone who dared draw the association between the two, that there was no connection. This would sure prove Palin right. She beat the drum pretty hard about Ayers and Obama connection.
I think Breitbart should go after this real hard.
Yes, but Obama’s writing has been pointed to as an indication of his brilliance, and if those writings aren't really his, then they can't legitimately be used as an indication of how bright he is. I think this is highly significant. If this was reported widely by the media it would be a major story. As it stands, however, it is still hearsay and Obama and Ayers can just deny it. The media will give him a pass.
Because I believe Obama specifically, repeatedly denied having help with it. And because the compelling prose is so obviously Ayers’, it blows a hole in the Obama-the-genius-writer myth.
Biggest story in American journalism? My guess is that by tomorrow a Nexis-Lexis of Ayers, Obama and Anderson will return exactly 0 hits. ABC,CBS,NBC,CNN,MSNBC, NYT and WAPO will all ignore as right wing hysteria.
And a nicer guy you will never ever meet. Talk to him for five minutes and you find out he knows everyone.
Too bad not a single person permitted to “question” Obama will ask him about this issue, or any other importnat issue.

Obama was a director of the Woods Fund board from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund's website. Obama served on the board with [Bill] Ayers, who was a Weathermen leader and has written about his involvement with the group's bombings of the New York City Police headquarters in 1970, the Capitol in 1971 and the Pentagon in 1972.
Article: Obama worked with terrorist
Senator helped fund organization that rejects 'racist' Israel's existence:
"They're certainly friendly" -quote from 'Obama's chief strategist (and reigning expert on Chicago's political tribes), David Axelrod,' on the Bill Ayers, Obama relationship.
It may confirm what YOU knew all along but 50 million people believed Obama when he flatly denied any involvement by Ayers or anyone else in the book's writing. So he is either a pathological liar, has something to hide or has a really bad memory.
You Lie !!

"In Barack and Michelle, Andersen writes that 'Ayers's contribution' to Dreams was 'significant'
"From Barack and Michelle, pages 165-166:
" In the end, Ayers's contribution of Barack's Dreams from My Father would be significant -- so much so that the book's language, oddly specific references, literary devices, and themes would bear a jarring similiarity to Ayers's own writings. Even the caveat at the beginning of Dreams, in which Barack points out that he uses invented dialogue, embellished facts, composite characters, inaccurate chronology, and pseudonyms to create an 'approximation' of reality, resembles Ayers's defense of the inaccuracies in his memoir Fugitive Days. In the foreword to his book, Ayers states that the book is merely a collection of his personal memories and 'impressions.'
" 'There was a good deal of literary back-scratching going on in Hyde Park,' said writer Jack Cashill, who noted that a mutual friend of Barack and Ayers, Rashid Khalidi, thanked Ayers for helping him with his book Resurrecting Empire. Ayers, explained Cashill, 'provided an informal editing service for like-minded friends in the neighborhood.'
" Thanks to help from the veteran writer Ayers, Barack would be able to submit a manuscript to his editors at Times Books."
[End of excerpt]
But crack mediasmatters experts try to discount it all using a year-old Sunday Times of London article. dailycuss, moron.org, huff'npuffpost are sure to cite the year-old article also. What about Mr. Andersen's book just released, Lefties?
I guess that's left to the commentators such as this one:
"This dumb a-- HANNITY dosent seem to realize that for most AMERICANS AYERS and the REVEREND WRIGHT are NOT important."
Hey, except for the misspelling that sounds like Ian Punnett (CoastToCoastAM Saturdays) defending Obama during the election, "I'm tired of hearing about Ayers!"

Thanks for the link. Listening to it now!
Rusty Humphries is going to have Cashill on his show in a few minutes.
First rule of lying: Tell your friend the same lie you tell your enemy. (By "enemy" I mean, of course, the American electorate.) Or at least tell your friend that you lied!
I thought the one area where we could expect competence from Obama was in lying. But, no, even that is apparently too much to expect. When you get a free ride from the fourth estate vetters, you never have the chance to get good at anything, even lying.
And, sadly, the media's strategic refusal to vet their tingle inducing candidate will probably pay off here. Since no one (AFAIK) asked him on the record if he wrote "Dreams" unaided, the Affirmative Inaction President will be able to shrug this off. (Assuming the MSM isn't able to effectively suppress it for him in the first place.)
“The only politician I know who can write is Barack Obama”
