Re: Ayers as Obama’s Ghost Writer

by Jonathan H. Adler

Andy — I agree that there are many troubling things about Obama, and there are many things that the press should — but has not — covered or investigated in any detail, including his relationship with Bill Ayers.  I also don’t think it is at beyond the pale to speculate about the provenance of his books, or even to suggest that to suggest he may have had help.  But it’s still a giant leap to Cashill’s suggestion that Ayers was the actual writer of Obama’s book, his “analysis” notwithstanding.  There are more serious issues at stake, and we can do better than that.
