What interested me almost as much as the exploration of the truth of Obama's life story is the way the media showed no interest in investigating any of it. They'd circled their wagons around Obama and not only didn't want to dig for the truth, they brushed off those who did by calling them kooks. As someone who works hard to get the fullest sense of the news, and both sides of issues, I am appalled (although not surprised) by the total lack of interest by the media.
The reason I gave the book four stars instead of five is that Cashill presents so much detail in support of his thesis that at times I had trouble seeing the forest for the trees. I'd heard an interview by Cashill (which is why I bought the book), and if I hadn't heard him recite the bones of this story very clearly and concisely, I think I'd have had something of a struggle to keep my eye on the main thread of the argument. I should point out also, that he did not start out to prove that Ayers was the author, in fact Cashill hadn't even considered that. It came to him slowly as the evidence added up.
During the 2008 campaign, I watched a video of Obama talking about the constitution being a barrier to wealth redistribution. As a law school graduate, I was not alarmed by the candidate's will to subvert the constitution (all liberals want to do this), but rather, I was alarmed by his complete lack of sophistication with constitutional law. Obama's command of constitutional law was that of a freshman political science student -- not that of a graduate from an accredited law school. His command of the law was what could be expected of someone who played the diversity card to the fullest and found it as an alternative to doing real scholarship. Any real liberal law student will tell you that the constitution is a "living document" that says whatever you want to say.
During a primary debate he complained about an employer paying less taxes than his secretary. This reflected his failure to understand profit and loss and the fact that an employer only pays taxes on the company's profits. In the best of times, many good companies experience profits that are little or nothing.Read more ›
The evidence that Bill Ayers wrote the Obama biography is overwhelming. There are many provable falsehoods in the narrative, prominent among them that Ann Dunham and Obama Sr lived together as a family with baby Barry. The cumulative effect of the many provable falsehoods leads to an overwhelming impression of Obama as a calculating phony. Though he is nowhere near the intellectual that he is made out to be, neither is he the Manchurian candidate that others have suggested. He has cynically exploited the system and many people in his climb. The press has suffered from an unusually aggressive narrative bias in enforcing a willful ignorance to all things not adhering to the Obama party line. This web of lies will come undone.Read more ›
