Skip to comments.Bill Ayers: “I wrote Dreams From My Father”
Posted on 10/06/2009 8:22:46 AM PDT by PBRCat
There I was, sitting in Reagan National Monday morning, sipping a Starbucks by the United counter before going through security. I had a little time, so I was browsing through the news. That's when I saw Bill Ayers, an instant blight. Scruffy, thinning beard, dippy earring, and the wirerims, heading to order. I gathered my things, got my camera ready, and snapped a shot right when he got his coffee.
He gave me an uneasy cheesy smile when he realized I was taking his picture.
I asked--what are you doing in D.C. Mr. Ayers?
[He said] he was giving a lecture in Arlington to a Renaissance group on education--that's what I do, education--you shouldn't believe everything you hear about me, you know nothing about me.
Then, unprompted he said--I wrote Dreams From My Father. I said, oh, so you admit it. He said--Michelle asked me to. I looked at him. He seemed eager. He's about my height, short. He went on to say--and if you can prove it, we can split the royalties. So I said, stop pulling my leg. Horrible thought. But he came again--I really wrote it, the wording was similar. I said I believe you probably heavily edited it. He said--I wrote it.

Obama is a total fraud.
If you visit the front page of “The Chicago Daily Observer” or click on the link in the text of the article to Anne Leary’s own blog, you will see the actual photograph of Bill Ayers taken in the Reagan airport in Washington, D.C.
Media Schadenfreude and Media Shenanigans PING

I said I believe you probably heavily edited it. He saidI wrote it. I saidwhy would I believe you, youre a liar.
He had no answer to that. Just looked at me. Then he turned and walked off, and said again his bit about my proving it and splitting the proceeds.
And that Ayers is more to the Usurper than some guy down the street.
This is waaaaay tooooo easy a question.
This article seems pretty insipid, but there’s a writer at Worldnetdaily who has already scientifically proven that Ayers wrote “Dreams From My Father” and that other philologists can prove it too but want to keep their day jobs, if you know what I mean.
These people feel like they're invincible. And it's going to be their downfall.
I remember that era, Mr. Ayers. People died because of your actions, including your girlfriend. More would have if you had been more successful. And yet you have the gall to teach the teachers of our young. I wont forget your murderous intent, your shameful acts, your contemptible lies and evasions.
As for our President, the verdict is still out. But Barack Obama called Bill Ayers friend and colleague for years. That in itself makes a damning statement.
If they are splitting royalties...shouldnt that be easy to confirm?
Don’t leave home without a recording device. It’s priceless.
Their day jobs being inhaling and exhaling air?
Jack Cashill was right about the book all this time.
I couldn’t follow the conversation as reported on the blog. It is unclear if Ayers is ‘kidding’.
With a mixed group of friends..I mentioned Palin’s book being number one. One chimed in”it was ghost writer”..another chimed in..all the political books are ghosted. Even Kennedy’s. Then I said..there is one that wasn’t. There was silence. I said Barack’s. He wrote his. Silence.
Writers have egos. King makers have immense egos. The man must be seething when Obama takes credit for his thoughts, then throws the king maker under the bus.
Ayers, like Obama, has an enormous ego. I bet it must frost him that Obama is getting credit—and royalties—from his (Ayers) work.
