UPDATE: Four years later, Ayers claims again he wrote it. Read more.
In a chance meeting with conservative blogger Anne Leary, Bill Ayers makes a stunning claim that he wrote–not just edited–President Barack Obama’s autobiography, Dreams from my Father.”
Wow. He makes this claim to a stranger who approaches him in Reagan National Airport. Can you believe anything this man says? Or, should I say, either man?
This is no small matter. We have been lead to believe that Obama’s eloquence is his strength, his trump card. Is it possible that all of this is a charade? A gigantic lie?
Does this suggest an answer to the question: Did Obama himself write his keynote speech to the 2004 Democratic convention that shot him into orbit as The One? Does Obama think so much like Ayers that what we’ve seen coming out of the White House during the first months of the Obama administration is a reflection of Ayers’ point of view?
Americans have been more than pummeled during the Clinton, G. W. Bush and now the Obama administrations with charges that the chief executive is a liar. How much longer will this continue?
