    Just when you thought it was safe to tow an outhouse float in a small town Nebraska parade which poked fun of President Obama by labeling it the PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY [sic] you find yourself the object of a federal investigation by Attorney General Eric Holder who, like his boss, has no apparent sense of humor.

    You would think a state with such dire financial problems couldn’t even consider spending such a large sum of tax dollars on something that’s usually built with private money. Luckily, the Illinois House has backed off the idea for the moment. USA Today reported… Illinois shelving $100M gift to Obama library A plan to offer $100 million in tax dollars to lure Barack Obama’s presidential library to Illinois is on the shelf, with lawmakers prepared to wrap up their spring session without advancing the idea. Democrats in the president’s home state pushed the proposal to compete against rival bids from...

    Since Franklin Roosevelt, every modern U.S. president has opened his own presidential library. On Friday, President George Washington, the nation’s first, finally will get his turn, as a state-of-the-art presidential library is christened in his honor. Washington’s beloved Mount Vernon steps into a bold new era with the formal opening of The Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington. Some 800 dignitaries, officials, and VIPs will be on hand to witness the unveiling of a library purpose-built to preserve the original books and papers from Gen. Washington’s personal collection. Noted historian and best-selling author David McCullough...

    TUCUMCARI, N.M. - Most Presidential libraries are constructed after the President completes his term. However, according to KOAT-ABC, a New Mexico man has determined the location for President Obama's library and has marked it with a sign that is sparking controversy in one small town. The sign rests on top of an outhouse. It reads: Obama's Presidential Library. Some in town view the sign as bad taste while others are supportive. One man told a local reporter that folks are treating it as a tourist destination and that it is frequently photographed. The man responsible for the sign would not...

    A beautiful day in Dallas - fair skies, temps in the high 60s - thousands of people came out to witness something that is so uniquely American that I'm not certain it survives translation into other languages. The dedication of a Presidential library is not a regular or usual event. There are only 13 such libraries in the Presidential library system. The first was Franklin Delano Roosevelt; the most recent is George W. Bush. Other private or non-profit organizations house the collected papers and memorabilia from previous Presidents but now the process is more systematized. The way these work -...

    DALLAS—As former President George W. Bush prepares to officially open his presidential library on Thursday, a question arises as it has for his predecessors: How objective will it be about his time in the White House? Bush left office five years ago as one of the most unpopular presidents in history, his poll numbers weighed down by public discontent over his handling of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and worries about the economy. But the former president wanted to take the controversies about his presidency head-on, say several former aides who worked closely with him on the library.

If Obama seriously thinks he deserves a library to be constructed in his honor, he needs to move back to Kenya where they will build a shack in his honor (made from hardened composted cow manure)

    Former President George W. Bush on Thursday outlined plans to establish a $300 million library, museum and research institute, taking a step back onto the national stage. The George W. Bush Policy Institute—which would be the first think tank to be affiliated with a presidential library—will address issues that were priorities during Mr. Bush's presidency, such as education, global health, political freedom and economic growth, and seek to promote advances by offering practical solutions, the former president said. In a speech at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where the center is slated to be built, Mr. Bush said the institute...

Bush library hasn't opened yet in Dallas, "Bloomberg News" reports sponsors already have contacted the White House about making the University of Chicago a permanent home for Obama's papers. There's a connection to the Nobels, because more than 80 have been claimed by people affiliated with the university. Obama taught constitutional law at the school for twelve years.

But he is at a loss to understand the president's conduct. In an earlier terror attack, the Saudis had cut off the heads of the suspected terrorists before the FBI could question them. To avoid a repeat, Freeh went to the president and emphasized the importance of intervening with the Saudis to allow questioning. The Saudis, of course, didn't want...

    More than a thousand pages covering pardons granted by former president Bill Clinton during his final days in office have been withheld from the public. Archivists at the Clinton Presidential Library decided to keep the papers out of a larger batch recently released because they covered confidential discussions with advisers. Included in the more than 2800 documents that have been made public, letters in support of fugitive financier Marc Rich and his partner, both of whom were pardoned by Clinton. The delays by the library in releasing documents have led to sharp criticism of Clinton and former first lady Hillary...

    A group of Methodist ministers has begun a national petition drive asking Southern Methodist University to remove itself from negotiations to get the George W. Bush presidential library. "As United Methodists, we believe that the linking of his presidency with a university bearing the Methodist name is utterly inappropriate," reads the petition, which is posted online at ProtectSMU.org. "Because SMU is owned by the United Methodist Church, the imposition of a George W.

Eager to begin refurbishing his tattered legacy, the President hopes to raise $500 million to build his library and a think tank at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Bush lived in Dallas until he was elected governor of Texas in 1995. Bush sources with direct knowledge of library plans told the Daily News that SMU and Bush fund-raisers hope to get half of the half billion...

It was not clear the Clinton had done so. If his status is less clear, here is what we do know: If Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton did not know...

A political uproar has ensued over the deal, which the White House approved without congressional oversight. Dubai Ports World offered Thursday night to delay part of the takeover to give the Bush administration more time to convince lawmakers the deal poses no security risks....

The Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene, Kan., announced Thursday the release of 40,000 pages of previously classified documents on subjects including J. Edgar Hoover's domestic intelligence operation, construction of the Berlin Wall and Middle East policy. Chester Pach, an Ohio University professor who authored "Presidency of Dwight D.

They were awarded "emeritus" status and handed glass globes and certificates signed by Nancy Reagan. Administrators deny that age was a...

The building is an architectural marvel, jutting out slightly over the south bank of the Arkansas River, in symbolic tribute to Clinton's "building a bridge to the 21st century" slogan. To me, all it symbolizes is that, surprisingly enough, the "21st century" is across the river in North Little Rock....

Until now, the late President Nixon has been the only president without his own federal library since the National Archives presidential library system began with President Hoover's library in Iowa. The Nixon library currently operating in Yorba Linda, Calif., is a private one. Nixon's presidential papers and tapes were seized by the government when he left office in 1974 following the Watergate scandal, and have been kept by the National Archives in College Park, Md. At the...
