Obama invites bids for library

President Obama's foundation announced Thursday it was soliciting initial bids from cities and universities interested in hosting the Obama presidential library.

The request marked the first chance for parties to formally signal their interest in the library, which is expected to be a multimillion-dollar project and serve as a tourist attraction for years to come.

After parties submit logistical, financial and organizational information, the foundation will narrow down the bids to a group of finalists. Those institutions will provide comprehensive proposals for review by the president and his top advisers.
“Our goal is to build a library of which the whole country, and hopefully the whole world, can be proud,” said Marty Nesbitt, Obama's personal friend and a co-chair of the foundation, in a statement. “Our vision is to create a space that reflects President Obama’s values and priorities throughout his career in public service and serves as force for good in the surrounding community and throughout our world.”

The University of Chicago, where Obama taught law, and where first lady Michelle Obama worked as a hospital administrator, is widely thought to have the inside track on a bid. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the president's former chief of staff, is expected to spearhead the bid, which might also include other Chicagoland universities.

“We are going to run a process. But my goal is to have the City of Chicago, with its major educational institutions, have a single proposal,” Emanuel told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Democrats are raising unholy hell about Organizing for America's ongoing fundraising that is bleeding the Dhimmie base white.  The Regime just promised to throttle OFA back, but at the same time is going to be quietly hitting up major donors for money to build Obammy a library.

This is one of the major reasons Dhimmies are so worried about these midterms...big money is scarce out there because Obama is soaking it all up still....

I would think he would kick the Arizona Memorial out (being a reminder of America's greatness) scuttle the Missouri somewhere off Oahu, and place his "library" (a reminder of his "greatness") on Ford Island. :whistle:

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

I know a few not-so-nice landfills where that library would fit in just perfectly.

I say we run a contest to name his "presidential" library. I'll begin.

The Accidental President Barack Hussein Obama Presidential Library

Going on, try your hand.

Obama's Presidential Lie-brary should take up less than one full shelf: a volume of each of his autobiographies, and a draft of the same speech he's now given 15,245 times.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.
