    Ayers affirms he wrote Dreams from my Father

    Could this possibly be true? I can''t imagine the American Thinker publishing this if it wasn't true.

    American Thinker Blog: Ayers affirms he wrote Dreams from my Father



    Unprompted, Ayers also noted that while Dreams deserves its praise, Obama's second opus, Audacity of Hope, is "more of a political hack book."


    Not surprisingly, Ayers retreated into irony as he ended the session. "Yeah, yeah," he said after confirming again that he wrote Dreams, "And if you help me prove it, I'll split the royalties with you. Thank you very much."


    With his final comment, the Ayers-friendly audience laughed in relief. The media will laugh nervously upon seeing the video as well. The White House will not.


    Barack Obama knows what I know and what the people who have read my book, "Deconstructing Obama," know: Bill Ayers is the principal craftsman behind Dreams. The evidence is overwhelming.


    Ayers also established, as I have contended from the beginning, that he is not the author of Audacity of Hope. Although Obama claims unique authorship of this book too, it was, as Ayers suggests, a disingenuous feint to the center written by committee.


    Worse for Obama still, Ayers knows that the story he and Obama contrived in Dreams is false in many key details. The fact that Donald Trump has proved willing to challenge that story has got to make the White House even more apprehensive.


    As was obvious in his speech at Montclair, Ayers does not like the application of force in Libya, and this may have been his own way of retaliating. Consider it a shot across Obama's bow. The White House will.

    It pretty much sounded like he was joking. However, I'd be interested in knowing more about what he was saying before that. Sounded like he was encouraging people to start a revolution. It was hard for me to hear.

    The American (non)Thinker has trouble with accuracy, willing to believe anything that fits their narrative.

    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.

    Yes, he was joking. And he has been for a awhile. Wonder when people will stop trying to make the joke real?

    I guess Ayers wasn't just some dude that lived in Obama's neighborhood and he really is friends with a terrorist.

    I know you like to get a rise out of people for kicks.

    But it's pretty transparent Champ.
