    pretty sure this thread was nothing more than PB's rather inept attempt to bait someone into a 'discussion' on Ayers and those books.

    Like Dana Carvey as Bush the Elder used to say, 'Not gonna do it'.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    In this case American Thinker is an oxymoron.

    There's an easy way to prove if Bill Ayers is telling the truth - contact the book's publisher and/or editor.
