Where are you getting your proof of the allegation? I don't want to reflexively say that is nonsense, but I haven't seen anything convincing.

I agree with DWill. Just because there are rumors out there of Obama having a ghost writer doesn't mean he DID have a ghost writer. I suggest you hold yourself up to a higher personal standard of ethics and not contribute to spreading unsubstantiated rumors about Obama. How would you feel if people did this about you?

By the way I am a conservative. I didn't vote for Obama, but I recognize the unfairness of such accusations without evidence.
