3 copies of Dr. Seuss, Rule for Radicals and a drooled over Koran don’t add up to very much.

I'm betting 3 libraries.

One in Hawaii, one in Chicago and one in Kenya.

He’s not suggesting another Ground Zero Mosque is he?

Put it in Kabul as a monument of a rube getting rolled by the Tali-bunnies.

“3 copies of Dr. Seuss, Rule for Radicals and a drooled over Koran don’t add up to very much.”

That is just the public stuff there would also be a warehouse of materials that are perpetually under lock and key, with armed guards at the door and a sign that says; “Beware of the tiger” painted on the wall

I guess that Comrade DeBlasio will like Obama’s next book, “Lies I Told America”.

It will be part of DeBlasio’s communist book collection - “Communist Manifesto, Das Kapital, Rules for Radicals, The Thoughts of Mao Tse-tung, and everything by Obama.

3 copies of Dr. Seuss, Rule for Radicals and a drooled over Koran don’t add up to very much.

That by itself isn't much, but add "The End of America" (or whatever that book he was reading was called), and 500,000 copies each of "Dreams of My Father" and "Audacity of Hope" will fill things out nicely.

You have missed the point...Obama did not get rolled by the Tali-bunnies...he is one with the tali-bunnies.

His side won...

I think he should recycle, put the Obama Presidential Library in Detroit, in this building: Grand Central Station.

It even has room for his Greek columns

It is breathtakingly majestic and in a great black neighborhood.

That’s odd!

Obama supporters can’t read and Obama has never actually written anything his handlers will let us see.

Mecca would be a perfect location. Then only Muslims would be allowed to use the library. Cut down on scholars making inconvenient discoveries in the records.

There are outhouses in every state. No brainer. He should have a library in every state. Then everyone can visit and give a s**t.

It looks like it was pretty awesome back in it's heyday, probably the 1920's or so.

“3 copies of Dr. Seuss, Rule for Radicals and a drooled over Koran don’t add up to very much.”

Don’t forget several decades of “Mother Jones” and “Out” magazines.

Almost positive it will end up being in Chicago. The second city would be Washington D.C.
