WASHINGTON Did Barack Obama write his own books, and is the story they tell true?
Those two questions are the focus of a new book by WND columnist Jack Cashill, and the definitive and persuasive answer to both is a resounding "no way."
In "Deconstructing Obama," veteran author and filmmaker Cashill builds on his voluminous columnist work on the subject of who wrote Obama's books especially his autobiographical "Dreams of My Father."
"I've written two books," Obama told a crowd of teachers in July of 2008. "I actually wrote them myself."
The teachers exploded in laughter. They got the joke: Lesser politicians were not bright enough to do the same. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama supporters pointed to the first of those two books, the 1995 memoir, "Dreams from My Father," as proof of Obama's superior intellect. Time magazine called it "the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician." The Obama campaign machine traded on the candidate's literary reputation, encouraging volunteers to "get out the vote and keep talking to others about the genius of Barack Obama."

Why can't this be done on Obama’s two books?
Never thougt I would look back at clintoon and his antics with nostalgia........
Seems like I remember reading that Bill Ayers actually confessed to writing at least one of those while talking to some writer that confronted him about it in an airport.
It was done. Obama's two books were written in two different literary styles (from someone who never practiced writing). "Dreams" has a style that closely matches books written by Ayers. "Audacity" is a different story.
It’s already been done. William Ayres, the unrepentent bomber and Weatherman terrorist who is now an English professor, is the author of Obama’s books.
Exactly. I read a piece by Jack Cashill once that absolutely convinced me that Ayers was the author of at least one of Barry’s “books”.
Could it have been at Reagan National? Posted by Anne Leary,
of the Chicago School, but not the Chicago Way:
Then, unprompted he said--I wrote Dreams From My Father. I said, oh, so you admit it. He said--Michelle asked me to. I looked at him. He seemed eager. He's about my height, short. He went on to say--and if you can prove it, we can split the royalties.
Ayers is the ghostwriter of Dreams. Audacity of Hope has a different style, and Cashill believes that Jon Favreau is the most probable author behind it:
That's it!!! He brought up the royalties thing more than once, and that has to be burning him, marxist or not, LOL.
I agree. Both Clinton and Obama should never have been elected to the presidency. Period. As bad as Clinton was on many levels, at least one didn’t have the feeling that he was out to destroy the country.
After reading Cashill and convincing myself he's probably right, that's the question I wondered about. The inequality of income distribution must really be burning up Ayers! Ninety-nine times out of a hundred, when you scratch a Marxist idealist freak, you find a capitalist pig beneath the veneer! But our corrupt society probably provides him with enough income from his various sinecures that he's willing to let it slide in the interest of the commie cause.
That’s agreat isea. Certainly Ayers has written enough psycho terrorist drivel that there’s plenty of material to compare the writing style, verb quantities, etc. that you described in the Clinton book analysis.
By comparison, the second memoir penned by Sen Obama in Audacity of Hope was written at a 9th grade level. Either his second memoir was penned by a different author, or he had by that time, learned to talk down to his audience.
Of particular interest is the Cumulative Sum Technique (Qsum) which has been used to prove authorship in courts of law. Qsum is still considered inconclusive however.
Using Qsum, the first analysis is of sentence length. Fugitive averages 23.13 words per sentence, while Dreams averages 23.36. By contrast, Audacity, penned later, clocks in at 29 words per sentence.
Cashill's research discovered additional indicators of a Ayers authorship of Obama's first memoir. Both use nearly identical imagery and style, and strikingly similar anger and disassociation with the truth. Both refer to lies and liars, while taking poetic license with the truth in telling their own stories.
This creep is nothing but a Punk Bit*h.
Been saying this for over 2 years. He has no written history worth note. His "biography" is fabricated, a fairy tale. I imagine his true biography, should it ever be revealed, would raise many eyebrows and drop many jaws.
The reason we hear nary a word from the MSM is because it will not only expose Obama as a fraud but will also expose nearly the entire media as the Marxist cheerleaders they have been for 50 years.
Thanks for that bit of information. I didn’t know Favreau had been fingered as the ghost writer.
