Skip to comments.As hurdles mount for Obama Presidential Center, worry and anxiety grow on South Side
Posted on 10/27/2018 2:46:01 PM PDT by Libloather
But recently, as development of the Obama center has faced obstacles and groundbreaking has been pushed back, Winston and some of her neighbors have begun to worry about the projects fate. It faces a legal challenge in federal court over the use of park space for the center, and its chief local backer, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, recently announced he will not be seeking a third term as mayor.
The result is anxiousness that has swept over some residents and communities on the South Side as they brace for a possible long wait, a bitter fight or even another grand disappointment.
If we lose this, we will never get anything else of this magnitude, said Winston, 35, who grew up in Bronzeville and considers herself a major stakeholder because of her lifelong residency in the region. So many of us see the real benefit of this center and want it here.

Barry’s a grifter but he can’t hold a candle to the Klitons.
Bronzeville is a crime infested crap hole. Thats why there are nothing but bottom feeding businesses there. Adding the Obungo library wont help things one bit.
But, but, but ... the grate one needs his monument.
It’s ridiculous that the only place they could think of building this was in Jackson Park. That park is a treasure, the neighborhood, not so much. There are easily a couple of blocks of private property in the area that could be leveled for this monument.
Just put up a couple outhouses in Bronzeville and call it a day.
Hey, the only TV I ever bought in my life was from the Hyde Park Walgreens. For $199 I got myself a 13” Goldstar. You could get almost everything at the Walgreens, Ace Hardware and Woolworth because there were no big box stores around (1982).
Wouldn’t a big homosexual bath-house/steam bath place be more appropriate for the Greatest Fraud Ever? Just askin’...

He dint build that
Call something the “Obama” anything and you’re destined for failure.
It will never get built. Let’s forget about Obama’s fake and flimsy political legacy or significance for a moment.
The public has already realized, this thing needs huge gobs of public money. Chicago is a bankrupt city, in a bankrupt state - even at super low interest rates and the stock and property markets near all-time highs.
If any of these things turns just a little bit, they are in deep financial trouble.
Adding the Obungo library wont help things one bit.
Sure it will help by giving them more places to spread their garbage and trash.
HERE'S your left leanin' library.
Now GTF OUT !
Barry cant get it built. He has zero experience in anything like this. It takes actual leadership from him to get it done. He is clueless.
The Obama crowd (never expecting to lose 2016) left a huge paper trail that Hillary was supposed o sweep under the Oval Office rug.
Soon as they occupied the WH, Obama placed his COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury.....
ponder that...... Rham was Obama's COS AND controlled Treasury.
"Mr President, you are now in complete control of the US Treasury."
THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move. When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials. Reported by WSJ / 05/31/09

Pres Trump needs to to ask US Treasury officials what exactly Rahm Emanuel and Obama were doing there.
PAUSE TO REFLECT--- As taxpayers were being gulled by the TARP fraud, Obama had tight control of Treasury and spent trillions of tax dollars. Obama calculatedly placed his then-COS Rahm Emanuel in a dual role.......in the WH and at Treasury. Obama had a stranglehold on the US Treasury via COS Rahm Emanuel's dual role.
...does the Odungo presidential center hut have a bath house room?
