Not much content to fill Obama Library

Success - Article sent! close

Obama's library in Illinois? Personally, I would find it not very interesting. There so many events that he has claimed no knowledge of; we would only get the real facts from a second and sometimes third sources.

Benghazi? No one knows where he was as it was unfolding. We would need to consult a secondary source such as Secretary of State Clinton, and she would or would not tell us much since "what difference would it make?"

Reverend Jeremiah Wright's racist rants? Obama never heard them.

The New Black Panthers intimidating voters in Philadelphia? Obama's Attorney General had the charges lessened; then they disappeared -- no story here.

Giving guns to Mexican drug cartels (Fast and Furious) in a scheme that blew up, Obama was not aware of it.

Double crossing our friend Egyptian President Mubarak and also Libya's late murdered leader Moammar Gadhafi, both countries now controlled by radical sworn enemies of the U.S. -- not much to brag about there.

Would the Obama Library feature his working up from a community organizer to the Illinois State Senate and then quickly to a U.S. Senator and the 400-plus "I abstain" votes he accumulated? I don't think so. Is this record worth a $100 million contribution of Illinois money to set up his library, while the Illinois teachers union's pension fund is woefully underfunded?

Obama is recognized as the most prolific fundraiser in the history of the world and his people are coming to put the squeeze on our bankrupt state for his library -- really?

I suggest he should consider one of our many shuttered school buildings. The price would be right.
