    The same reason that the Reagan library is not in Illinois. Reagan sees himself as from California, though born in Illinois just as Obama sees himself as from Illinois, though born is Hawaii

    taken at face value, this sound very politically motivated....I don't really believe coincidences.
    There is no coincidence.

    1)Reagan's "childhood" home is in Dixon IL, not Chicago. The apartment in question was a short stop over for the Reagan family.
    All of a few months.

    2)The University bought that property well before Obama was President. Are "liberals" now clairvoyant?

    3)I don't think that's what the University has in mind for that land. But all it takes for the frothing of the mouth to begin is 2 pieces of information that don't have anything to do with one another to reach the crazies and VOILA, instant drama.
    a) the University is bidding to house Obama's Presidential Library
    b) the University is thinking of bull dozing an apartment building that once housed the Reagan family for a few months, which BTW they purchased
    years before the election of President Obama.

    Next we'll see some Reagan worshipers that think the urinal at the truck stop that Reagan once visited and pissed in should be saved as well from being bulldozed.

    That, in its essence, is Fascism -- ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any controlling private power." -- FDR, a true patriot.

    How long did he live there? Unless it was pretty much his entire childhood, and especially if it was only a couple years or less, then I'm failing to see the outrage.

    I'm all for saving some historic places, but don't feel the need to save literally everything.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    This is very low

    And yes I would criticize the same for if it was the other way around
    Yea. Why not put a mosque there instead. This is the dumbest thread ever.

    It'd be more expensive to get in the car and drive from out of state than to book a flight. Accommodations once there can be expensive or cheap no matter what state the library resides.

    However, if I were the state he'd chosen as his home state, I'd be fairly pissed off he didn't choose to put his library there.

    I personally am sick of politicians being treated like Demi-God Rock Stars...and I don't care who they are from Washington up...seriously. Politicians are hired by the people to run ****ing government...and I think it was originally setup that it be done in such a way that it was for and by the people...but that's turned to total ****!

    If anybody needs a library in his or her name...****, Homer Simpson deserves it more than any politician.
