What does a conservative blogger do when bumping into unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers at an airport in D.C.? If you’re Anne Leary, you strike up a conversation:
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. I said–why would I believe you, you’re a liar.
Jack Cashill made this claim a year ago in WorldNetDaily and backed it up with textual analysis. It’s been confirmed now by author Christopher Andersen in his new book, Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage.
As Cashill notes, the major media will probably protect the president’s empty suit by dismissing or ignoring the evidence, but don’t expect Barack Obama to openly claim authorship of the two books that bear his name any more.
