This is a very well written, researched and interesting article from a literary specialist that is doing some forensic work on the writings of William Ayers and of Barack Obama.
The writer contends that Bill Ayers is likely the ghost author of Barack Obama’s landmark “autobiography” Dreams Of My Father and that there is no possibility that Obama wrote it himself.
From American Thinker
Evidence continues to mount that Barack Obama had substantial help from Bill Ayers in the creation of his 1995 book, Dreams From My Father, a book that Time Magazine has called “the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.” The evidence falls into five general categories, here summarized.
- The discovery of new matching nautical metaphors from both Ayers and Obama that almost assuredly came from the same source: Ayers, a former merchant seaman.
- The discovery of a Bill Ayers’ essay on memoir writing, whose postmodern themes and phrases are echoed throughout Dreams.
- A newly discovered book chapter from 1990 that shows clearly and painfully the limits of Obama’s prose style the year he received a contract to write Dreams.
- The revelation by radical Islamicist Rashid Khalidi that Ayers made his “dining room table” available for neighborhood writers who needed help.
- A refined timeline that shows Ayers had the means, the motive and the time to help Obama when he needed it most.
Make sure to read the whole article. It is very detailed in proving the assertions presented above. If this is true, that would be a VERY interesting revelation.
I always thought that Obama was no where near the master of words that people think he is… he stumbles over his own words all the time and is the king of “Uhhhh” without a teleprompter.
I am not sure what to think about this though…. I mean, I can almost believe it, but I don’t know.
