    That is just disgusting. Reminds me of all the buildings named after McConnell. Usually buildings are named after people who did something great, or donated from their personal fortune. He hasnt even done anything "great" except being a slimey politician. Gross.

    But it's interesting that you'd consider a guy who was a lawyer, professor, state legislator, US Senator and President as not having a professional career.
    I didnt say he didnt have a "professional career" I said he wasnt a professional. Anyone who pays attention can see that he is more high schooler than he is professional.

    What would make him different from others with that career path that would make someone dismiss his accomplishments? Gosh. It's hard to say!
    Yet you jump right to race and made the assertion that I was a racist? What a sad, tired, and downright PATHETIC accusation. Were in year 7...I have plenty of CONTENT OF CHARACTER to judge Obama upon....Who was that again who wanted people judged by the content of their character and not their skin color? Some famous dude...but I cant remember the name. Can you help me?

    This is the most anti-Constitutional President of ALL TIME....and his actions are only half of the problem, the other half is the PRECEDENTS he is setting. We are in trouble...it doesnt hurt that every time you criticize him you are met with accusations of being a racist. You arent just part of the problem, you ARE the problem.

    LOL.

    Thanks for the info, Rush.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Or the bridges, post offices, and roads. Monuments to the people who built this country 250 years ago are one thing. We dont need libraries to every nobleman who got elected to an office.

    Thanks for the white-flag lack of a rebuttal. You cant even defend the man you support and voted for twice.

    Exactly. They are monuments to crony capitalism if anything.

    I can. But as I've said before, you can't reason a man into understanding a position he didn't reason himself in to.

    Hey works for me, I sure don't plan on going to that ****ty place. An Obama library in a place I never plan on going back to is perfect.

    The fact that they are a relatively recent phenomena probably has more to do with the fact we are a far more mobile and traveling society than we used to be. Prior to the 30s a lot of people spent a their entire lives never getting more than 100 miles from their birthplace. I don't see anything wrong with having presidential libraries. Anything that gets people more engaged in history and the politics that surrounded it is a good thing in my opinion.

    Even if that unnecessarily costs 100 million dollars?

    First world problems I guess...

    Then do it, instead of making excuses to not do it.

    Wow there is something to brag about. "My side has more comedians neener neener neener". Really this is something you see as a positive? To have more jokesters on your side?

    Politics is not about humor, its not about likability...its about logic, thought, and reason. This is why liberal policies fail...they trade things that work good for things that sound good.
