I missed it...
“I Don’t Care, Obama Is Awesome”
In case anyone didn’t see that video:
It’s the bummoids’ answer to everything.
Yes, it was well done, just not long enough!!
Be Ever Vigilant!!
That video was freaking great.
I agree that it was great and not long enough. I downloaded the book a couple of days ago and can't wait to read it. Jack Cashill is a great investigative reporter/writer.
I saw the whole thing.
Kudos to Jack.
In the same 1993 book, To Teach, Ayers tells the story of an adventurous teacher who takes her students out to the streets of New York to learn interesting life lessons about the culture and history of the city.
As Ayers tells it, the students were fascinated by the Hudson River nearby and asked to see it. When they got to the rivers edge, one student says, Look, the river is flowing up. A second student answers, No, it has to flow south-down.
Upon further research, the teacher discovers that the Hudson River is a tidal river, that it flows both north and south, and they had visited the exact spot where the tide stops its northward push.
In his 1995 book, Dreams From My Father, Obama shares a stunningly similar story from his own brief New York sojourn. As Obama tells it, he takes an unlikely detour to the exact spot on the parallel East River where the north-flowing tide meets the south-flowing river.
There, improbably, a young black boy approaches this strange man and asks, You know why sometimes the river runs that way and then sometimes it goes this way? Obama tells the boy it had to do with the tides.
Does he even need to present the case? Ayers has admitted it several times.
We would prefer to know who cleansed the Messiah’s entire life. The name(s) of those who created a biography of lies are, IMO, traitors and should be in prison for life.
Ayers wants his share of the Royalties. Since he wrote it.
Maybe Ayers can team up with Trump to expose the usurper.
Obambi squeezed between a rock and a hard place....between Trump and Ayers.
If they could pull it off....I would see Trump/Ayers in '12
I've heard people call Ears the "New Black Face on the New World Order". I wonder if it is related.
Fox & friends did not post video; but, mediamatters.org ... (an Obama
sympathizer web site did).... They “Ran Down” Fox!!

Fox & Friends Hosts Cashill To Push His Conspiracy Theory That Ayers Wrote Obama’s Memoir
Fox & Friends Hosts Cashill To Promote His Conspiracy Theory That Ayers
Wrote Dreams From My Father. On March 29, Fox & Friends hosted Cashill to
promote his claim that Ayers wrote Obama’s memoir, Dreams from My Father.
During the interview, co-host Steve Doocy asked Cashill,
“[W]hy isn’t the mainstream media touching this with a 10-foot pole?”
Co-host Gretchen Carlson ended the interview by promoting Cashill’s book,
saying, “Well, if you want to know more about these claims, check out Jack
Cashill’s book, Deconstructing Obama.” From Fox & Friends:
DOOCY: For the second time in less than a year a half, controversial professor Bill Ayers is making the claim that he, Ayers, wrote President Obama’s book Dreams from My Father. Listen to this:
[begin video clip]
AYERS: I wrote that - Dreams from My Father.
OFF-CAMERA VOICE: Yeah, we know that.
OFF-CAMERA VOICE: You wrote that?
AYERS [video clip]: Yeah, and if you could help me prove it, I’ll split the royalties with you.
[end video clip]
CARLSON: All right, so was it a joke, or was he being serious? Joining us now is the author of Deconstructing Obama: The Life, Loves, and Letters of America’s First Post-Modern President,” Jack Cashill. Good morning to you, Jack.
CASHILL: Hey, good morning, Gretchen. Good morning, Steve.
DOOCY: Good morning.
CARLSON: So, when you hear that - it’s not the first time that Bill Ayers has done this. Is it a joke, or is he being serious?
CASHILL: It’s a joke, but the joke is on the White House. This is the third time he’s done it, but it’s the first time he did it on camera. He knew the camera was pointed at him, and he did it at a particularly critical time. And that is when we’re going to launch a military attack on Libya, which he is not at all pleased with, nor is the hard left. And in a sense, I think it’s a shot across the president’s bow. I think he’s saying, hey, I know something about you, and I’m prepared to talk about it if you don’t play ball with me.
DOOCY: And Jack, do you have any doubt in your mind whether or not the president of the United States wrote his book?
CASHILL: I have no doubt that Bill Ayers was the primary craftsman behind Dreams From My Father, and an interesting twist on this, too, is that earlier in that clip, he disassociates himself from the second book, Audacity of Hope, which he says was a hack political book — and it was, it was written by committee. And —
DOOCY: Right. But, Jack, how can you - I mean, that’s very damning to say that somebody else wrote the president’s book. You have any evidence?
CASHILL: Oh, I have a ton of evidence. It’s all between the pages of my book,Deconstructing Obama, and when you see it all accumulated, Steve, when you see chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter, the textural evidence is so powerful it’s undeniable. And then there was also the confirmation by Christopher Andersen in his book Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, and he has no skin in that game.
CARLSON: Let me ask you this, Jack. So let’s say Bill Ayers did write that book.
CARLSON: Why do we — why does it matter? And I know that you also believe that if he did, some of the stories are not exactly truthful, and how does that play into everything?
CASHILL: Well, first of all, it matters because the whole myth of Obama’s literary genius is built around the book Dreams from My Father, and that’s taken away. It also throws into doubt Obama’s ability to tell the truth, because he said he scarcely knew this guy. It also puts the, you know, a terrorist wandering around in the head of Barack Obama.
But what’s even more important is that the story they tell in the book Dreams from My Father is contrived to a large degree. And they, you know, Obama, Ayers, slash admits as much, especially about the first two years of Obama’s life. What we know for a fact is that there was no Obama family. That he and his mother lived in the state of Washington the first year of his life while Barack Sr. was back in Hawaii. When the family returns to Hawaii, he’s gone. Barack Sr. is gone to Harvard. The whole fabricated family life is—does not exist.
DOOCY: Jack, why isn’t the mainstream media touching this with a 10-foot pole?
CASHILL: They’re afraid of this story. I mean, because they have so much vested interest in, you know, upholding the Obama agenda. Not only that, but in, they put up so much personal emotional equity in Obama’s genius. There’s a lot of very smart literary people who should have seen this on the first read of Dreams from My Father, and they didn’t. It’s transparent he’s not a writer. There’s no paper trail before this book, and what paper trail there is shows him to be like a C-minus student in a freshman comp class. You don’t go from that to writing the best-produced, best-written memoir ever by an American literary figure.
CARLSON: Well, if you want to know more about these claims, check out Jack Cashill’s book, Deconstructing Obama. Jack, thanks for your thoughts this morning.
CASHILL: Gretchen, thanks. Steve, thank you, too.
DOOCY: You betcha. Thank you, sir. [Fox News’ Fox & Friends, 3/29/11]
