    I'm sure he had help from many people and that is included in his acknowledgements. It could have even been inspired by Ayers. I'm still not entirely sure why and how he wrote the book in the first place. Most books would have that in there somewhere, his didn't and that was strange to me.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    I also found that odd but didn't remember it until you mentioned it. I also find the timing of his book curious. In 1995 he was a nobody. Who was he writing it for exactly?

    Aah there it is, the regular Obama hatred by people who still can not believe that their candidates were defeated by a "socialist" (which of course Obama is not) country hater (which is also just an accusation built on hatred of Obama to begin with).

    No. No need to. I already know he was a Communist and a violent alcoholic and that Obama is very leftist.

    And we already knew that you have no idea what any of those words actually mean.

    Everything I said is true whether you like it or not.


    -Obama's father was a known alcoholic

    -Obama's father was a self avowed Communist

    -Obama is on the left of the political spectrum

    I believe he said he wrote it in one straight shot coming out of law school. If I recall, he did explain why he wrote it. I'm sure he was hoping to make some money off of it to help pay off his school loans.


    He wrote the book for a general audience- it's clear he's a good writer, and his story is fairly interesting given his background and where he ended up at the time. The community organizing challenges in it were really interesting to me, being from Chicago.

    It didn't go anywhere, of course, until he attained national prominence. But it could have...many books like it do every year. I recall hearing him interviewed on it on local radio show.

    I don't believe he would have known Ayres at the time he did the book.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I call him what I know him to be, and what his policies have proven him to be and that is not a socialist or a country hater.

    That's my point, you don't know who he is.

    Please take time to watch this.
