Two Must-Read Articles About Barak Obama's Autobiography, "Dreams From My Father"
In Who Wrote Dreams From My Father, Jack Cashill brings his considerable analytical skills as a writer and student of fiction and prose, to the question of whether someone else besides Obama may have written Obama's autobiography? Quite persuasive indeed.
Certainly, if Obama is not the actual author of his own autobiography, it would explain the perplexity of Samuels when he attempts to reconcile Obama the "author" with Obama the "candidate." Perhaps the two are different people.
Steve Sailer of iSteve blog was probably the first writer to bring the public's attention to the fascinating narrative of Obama's first book--which has been much of the basis for Obama's reputation as an intellectual of the first rank. Over the past year, Sailer has relentlessly pointed to aspects of Obama's published narrative that clashes with Obama's candidacy and in-person persona.
The contradictions are suggestive of there being less in the person than meets the eye. Obama has been the lucky beneficiary of a considerable amount of helpful assistance by powerful and well-connected individuals over the past 10 years. Almost as if he had been re-born under a lucky star and granted a number of wishes by a powerful djinn. A natural question to ask: when do the wishes begin to run out?
