    If the man wants it in his library, I say go for it. Otherwise, no.

    We all make mistakes, nobody enjoys having their noses rubbed in it. Personally, I don't think Bush deserves to have his nose rubbed in it in his frigging Presidential library.

    I don't get the purpose of Presidential libraries, but I at least get that that's not the place where you make fun of a President.
    On that Mr. Dan we are in complee agreement. Scary, huh?

    I think you'd probably find that we agree on more than you might think -- I'm just more vocal on things I don't like than I am on things I do like.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Yes. It should hang there as an example of just how much he did suck.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, fair is fair.

    Hell, let them preserve their illusions about their legacies. None of them are perfect, besides we're just paying for it.

    I believe that presidents raise private money to pay for their libraries.

    According to this site is a combination of tax payers and private donations.

    Who pays for a presidential library?

    Both private citizens and taxpayers. Before any bricks get laid, a private foundation is created to raise the money for the both the building and an endowment to run special programs and exhibits. In order to keep former presidents from erecting another Great Pyramid in their honor, the government requires that the bigger the square footage, the bigger the endowment. Once the building is dedicated, the library is turned over to the National Archives and Records Administration, which runs it, paying for both the staff, such as a director and archivists--who are federal employees--and much of the maintenance.
