  1. Believe the bulk of the funds came from the Saudi's for getting the BinLaden family out of the US after 9/11.

  2. If presidential libraries are to be considered a waste then let this be the last of them. The opportunity for a new direction can be the future Obama 'library', a Chicago storefront displaying the hallmarks of his presidency: a large pile of human waste, bronzed.

  6. It's good to see that my congressman, Duncan is at least asking for some financial accountability on these boondoggles.

  7. and a pile of dead babies, bronzed

  8. It must have been an awful accident, you're still not lucid. Head hurt much?

    I should have said "is bringing back". It will take a long time. When Obama took office our economy was in FREEFALL! Now it's stabelized and slowly improving. The troops are out of Iraq and soon will be out of Afganistan! No?

    Thanks for your time.

    You don't listen to Talk Radio by any chance do you?

  12. Does the GWB Liebrary have the plane flown by CIA Drug Smuggler Barry Seal and by GW Bush on display? How about the Bush and Clinton family involvement in the IRAN Contra drug smuggling and murder for hire or the Mena AR drug depot?
