Jack Cashill gets an inadvertent boost from the New York Times
Lashing the president for his lack of empathy and leadership, Maureen Dowd writes:
In “Dreams From My Father,” Obama showed passion, lyricism, empathy and an exquisite understanding of character and psychological context—all the qualities that he has stubbornly resisted showing as president. It was a book that promised a president who could see into the hearts of other people. But there’s so much you don’t learn about candidates in campaigns, even when they seem completely exposed.Hmm, could it be that Obama the man and president is devoid of the poetic qualities and psychological sensitivity so abundantly on display in “Dreams from My Father” because the poetic and psychologically sensitive parts of that book were not written by Obama, but, as Jack Cashill has argued in a series of articles, by a ghostwriter, namely William Ayers, who, notwithstanding his repulsive leftism and record as an anti-American terrorist, has demonstrated in his own books qualities of lyricism and sensitivity strikingly similar to those shown in Obama’s book?
