Race for Obama library gets serious
Crain's Chicago Business ^ | March 5, 2014 | Paul Merrion

Posted on 03/06/2014 7:59:18 PM PST by ConservativeStatement

The bidding war for President Barack Obama's presidential library is expected to formally get underway next week.

Chicago, where the president spent his early career, is vying to put it somewhere on the South Side. New York, where he went to college, and his birthplace of Hawaii are also contenders. Like other presidential libraries, it's expected to be a big draw for tourists and create other economic spinoffs.

“and his birthplace of Hawaii are also contenders.”

I know a person, fought in the Korean War, good guy, not a liberal. Voted for Obama in 2008 for one reason: skin color. He has said so and regretted it, however, I asked if he voted for Obama in 2012, he said “I had to, it would be admitting an error on my part.”

He didn't have the BACKBONE to admit his error.
Cowardice and pride. The latter is one of the seven deadly sins. The other...the backbone of a wet noodle.
SHAME ON HIM.

Beside, he didn't HAVE to tell ANYONE how he voted. It is NOBODY'S business. That's why it's a SECRET ballot.
He turned into a MORAL coward in his old age.

Something I’ve noticed here on FR is that a high percentage of posts that contain some kind of typo or grammatical error are posted more than once.

It would be so greedy for the capitalist piggery of amerika to steal this historic treasure from the poor downtrodden exploited people of the world. Let it be built in his birthplace in western Kenya. Or at his school where he learned his d@@@ed Muslim Koran so obviously well in Indonesia.

For what will be in the “library”, it might as well be on the dark side of the moon. Nothing in there will shed any more light on what we know today, which is ZERO

Whoa da South Side of Chicago Is da baddest part of town...

I vote Chicago where such a library will do the most good employing hundreds of thousands of monochrome people who couldn't get any other jobs - all paid for by the federal monolith.

his Library will more than likely have a lock and key on it so no one will really be able to visit...

but no matter where it is built I’ll never visit it...and I repeat..NEVER
