HONOLULU (AP) - On these sun-bathed shores, Barack Obama was born and spent his formative years, soaking in an island sensibility that his wife and friends say is indispensable to understanding who he is as president. Yet in the search for a home for his future presidential library, Hawaii has become the underdog, stuck in Chicago's perpetual shadow.

Blech. All the info about him while growing up and through college can be stored in an old Altoids tin.

Where - and what influences on - ones 'formative years' does indeed impact who the adult they will be, becomes.

Trouble is, he spent his formative years in Indonesia, being raised by a Muslim stepfather and Commie mother - attending school with his religion listed as "Islamic" and attending Koran studies - getting up at 4 in the morning for the first call to prayer - He father was also Muslim - and when he went to live with his commie granparents in Hawaii, his tutor for years was an uber commie - Frank Davis, from Chicago - hence the Chicago politics inroads and connections -

And all that really DOES tell us what we have in the WH.

Well, they should definitely put it in a blue state. No use dirtying a good state with it, plus the creepy crowd that it would attract. OTOH, why not put it in Indonesia?

Chicago would be best. Then it can become a deserted, derelict shambles when Chicago becomes Detroit.

A fitting monument to the loser dictator.

His library will be in Chicago. He knows if it is in Hawaii, no one would visit it. And the narcissist in Chief doesn’t want that.

Yeah, he would live in Hawaii and do speaking tours for those that worship him to get richer, but his library would probably be in Chicago IMO. But who knows, maybe they will build it on the base of some active Hawaiian volcano.

The Birth Certificate THE FOREIGNER released was a total fraud. It’s not been proven he was born in Hawaii unless your a leftist drone. They can build the library in Hawaii or Russia. Makes no difference to me. I wouldn’t go see it if you paid me.

I’ve got the perfect place for his so-called library.

Barstow, Communist California. It might still be, but was a major railhead at one time. And just down the road a bit, is the Calico Ghost Town, the only other attraction in the area, outside of sprawling Fort Irwin.

As such a bang-up job as this human being has done, that town is all that he rates in my book.

LOL

I’m betting that given Caliph Baraq’s preference for opulence, we’ll see the first POTUS library with 3 branches.

Hawaii, LA, and Chicago.

If it contains Obama’s writings, they only need a closet at the back of some gay bar.

Let’s include the international branches in Kenya and Indonesia.

What a crock of shiite!

The only thing he spent time sucking in was dope, communism, and older white guys in exchange for coke.

Only people I see that give a damn about the Kenyan are angry old white liberals. The local brown skinned people act like they could not care who he claims to be.

Question? Since everything is sealed by the first EO he signed, not by a law, can a future President sign an EO that unseals Zer0’s records, or negates Obunghole’s EO?

The BHO library will be nothing but a shrine that would make any communist commissar green with envy.
I have visited many presidential libraries. His won’t be one of them.

You bring up a good point. Keyna enthusiastically claims him as one of their own. Hawaii doesn’t. Other Presidents home states were proud to say they were the birthplace of an American President. Even Jimma Carter.

Oahu is too small for this jerk’s ego. It will tip over with the Obama worship center. There are only a million people or so on the island and Obama’s ego must be fed by more people than that. And tourists aren’t going to Oahu to look at a shrine to Obama. However, with that being said, here’s what I can imagine Obama doing.

Obama is “all about me.” He will pave over the Arizona memorial for his library. Inside on an obscur wall will hang a plaque, “Obama throughout History plaque 482794b. On this site the USS Arizon was sunk due Republican obstructionism. Barak Obama reached across the aisle to work with Republicans, prevented the oceans from rising, healed the planet, and provided health care to those without health insurance.”

The answer is yes. In fact the Obama presidential records Executive Order #13489 that you are referring to revoked a George W. Bush Executive Order #13233 of November 1, 2001.
By the way, Executive Orders can be and some have been declared to be unconstitutional.
In 1952, the Supreme Court ruled in Youngstown Sheet and Tube v. Sawyer {343 U.S. 579} that President Truman’s Executive Order #10340 which asserted the President’s Commander-in-Chief power to authorize the government seizure and operation of the steel mills in order to prevent a work stoppage during wartime was unconstitutional.

Build Obama’s presidential library on French Frigate Shoals, they're half way between the Hawaii (big island) and Midway Island. Then, when one of the annual typhoons roars through, the storm will sweep it away.

Thanks for the info that indicates that Zer0’s EO to suppress all of his background, that which was the most important thing that he signed on his first day of inauguration, could be over-turned by a new President.

But, only if we elect a President that has some real spine to create a constitutional crisis of the eight years of a flawed socialist regime!

Who has the guts????

A problem is that Obama’s Executive Order only refers to “Presidential Records.” Those are records that are kept and accumulated AFTER inauguration. Obama’s birth certificate, Social Security Administration records, draft records, college records, travel records and financial aid records are not presidential records.

Huh??

I thought that all the lifetime records were sealed by the EO, and any repository of prior records of Zer0 would be prosecuted by revealing them.

So why haven’t Occidental, Columbia, Harvard, Hawaii, Kenya, Indonesia, Illinois, released any records relating to Zer0, if they’re not under a federal gag order for suppression???

Nope, presidential records begin on Inauguration Day. College records are confidential but not sealed.
Orly Taitz sued Occidental College to get Obama’s registration and financial aid records. Occidental College won the lawsuit and the judge fined Orly Taitz $4,000 in court costs to be paid to Occidental’s attorneys.

http://occidentalweekly.com/uncategorized/2012/11/28/taitz-loses-court-case-to-occidental-over-obamas-records/

There is a difference between a confidential record and a sealed record. However if you have a court order ( a warrant not a subpoena) from a judge, a confidential record or a sealed record can be released.

And as we all know these days, there’s no longer any such thing as a sealed record in the era of Wikileaks, Edward Snowden or Bradley Manning. If you are a skilled enough hacker, even the most top secret records can be opened and released.
