    He lived in that house for less than a year and was in 5 different homes. This was a silly story. I laughed when I saw Erin Burnett say something on Twitter about how it was a bad thing to tear down the house. God damn Twitter makes professionals say the dumbest things.

    I think that the issue is that the Democrats and Obama in particular are being petty.

    Well IF that is true then I guess it is ok but then this is Chicago and might be a disinformation campaign.

    If I continued focusing strictly on conservative intellectual history, the University of Chicago would have been one of the 4 or so best schools for my choice, due to the massive collection of material. They take care of those that are conservative in their university, especially in the economics and political science departments (it's the home of Milton Friedman, Albert Wohlstetter, Leo Strauss, Richard Weaver-but he was an English professor, a bunch of others).

    Reagan's family moved around a LOT when he was a boy; his father moved them from rental to rental frequently. If every single one of those places was held sacred, it'd be half the real estate of Illinois (exaggeration, of course, but the point stands).

    Not to mention, Michael Reagan shot this story down himself when he said his dad didn't care about it, pointing to the length of time they stayed there and how many times they moved.

    Anywhere Saint Reagan walked is hallowed ground, didn't you know? Every toilet he ever used should be put in a museum.

    Then that would make it less likely.

    Re: Reagan's home could become a parking lot for Obama's library

    Now I'm not one to call for making it a shrine, but to make it a parking lot for Obama's Library .....

    No one can say that this is not politically motivated and not only does it piss me off but it shows the complete lack of ethic's those responsible have .......

    This is very low

    And yes I would criticize the same for if it was the other way around

    Why is the Obama library not in Hawaii?
