Obama and Ayers shared the Dream

Obama has said that Bill Ayers is just some guy that lives in his neighborhood and his interactions with him are minimal.

But now a literary expert named Jack Cashill is convinced that Bill Ayers actually wrote large portions of Barack Obama's supposed autobiography Dreams of My Father, if not the whole book. Check out these links for yourself.

Here's a pretty lengthy, but detailed, video interview of Jack Cashill on the B-Cast.

And Jack Cashill's website breaks down his research into parts [1] [2] and [3]. He seems to make a very strong case.

An interesting quote from part 1 is the following:

As an undergraduate, Obama had written what he justifiably calls some “very bad poetry.” He published nothing under his own name in The Harvard Law Review, where he served as an editor and as president. And after leaving Harvard, he published nothing in its review or in any law journal.

Then, in 1995, this untested 33 year-old produced what Time Magazine has called--with a straight face-- “the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.”

Cashill does some pretty deep analysis to prove that the writing is very much like that of Bill Ayers. He in the least makes a great argument that it is very unlikely that Barack Obama was the sole author of the book as he claims.
