Don't continue to read if your delicate sensitivities are offended by rumours.

Has anyone been following the rumour that Bill Ayers ghost wrote Barry's books?

I thought it was just silly stuff at first, but now I'm intrigued by the possibility. Just google Ayers wrote Dreams of My Father and you can get a taste of what is being charged.

You seriously need to take a reality pill. Save yourself from falling into the looney pit of conspiracy theorists.

Maybe your post should deal with crawling out.

That really is kind of silly. There was a topic a couple of weeks ago with a line from Sotero's book (well, Obama's, depending on which father) and a line from an Ayer's book. Yeah, they read alike, sounded like one mind but of course, there's no proof. Nothing to charge.

Just wait til next year. It won't matter anymore.

As I mentioned in the OP, I've read some interesting info about this that goes farther than looney conspiracy stuff. If you think it's foolish, that's fine...others may find the info interesting. There are some "forensic" programs out that have been used on the texts.

Like I said, if you think its dopey, don't waste your time. I suggest anyone interested google and start reading. Quite fascinating, actually.

Yes. There is something either with Rezko or Ayers. Politico is sitting on it. There is another blogger who has the same source and is trying to corroborate.

Well, you may think this is nonsense. Me, I'm not so sure.

Since the media isn't doing any investigating of The Golden Child, I'll do my own research.

Oh....and remember Rev. Wright? That was nonsense for about 1 year as it floated about the internet until the MSM was forced to address it.

The more I read about Barry's very limited writing abilities prior to writing "the best book ever written by a politician"....the more I think that Ayers may have been the writer.
