Obama’s Library Architects Say Project May Need $1.5 Billion (that was in February)

but now

Obama's Presidential Library Won't Actually Have Library Materials

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/...y-materials-n2392746

Unlike traditional presidential libraries, the Obama Presidential Center will not actually have library materials

Instead, it will include space for outdoor functions and picnics, a basketball court, recording studio, sledding hill, children’s play garden, and more.

the center will rely on online archives for Obama’s presidential materials as a way to avoid meeting federal standards in construction, raising money for an endowment , and paying the National Archives and Records Administration to run the facility.

without those papers on site, some have begun to ask whether the Obama Center can even attract researchers to the University of Chicago, Chicago State University or the University of Illinois.

Officials initially thought the papers would be kept in Chicago. But after they spent $300,000 to ship Obama’s documents to the Chicago region and about $223,000 a month to store and provide security for tens of millions of textual records, artifacts and audio visual materials here, they decided to ship them back to Washington once a decision is made on where to keep them permanently, a spokeswoman with the National Archives and Records Administration said.

8 mos at 223k is $1.8 mil

Adrena Ifill, the managing partner of Washington, D.C.-based DoubleBack Global Group, a cultural heritage firm, said the move online “is in line with his legacy.”

******************

or, do you think obama had a hard time getting people to pony up $1.5 Bil ??

I think the waste of more of our tax dollars is indeed "in line with his legacy"

Hopefully it will incude bullet proof glass and armor plating. The neighborhood that it's planned for is a shit-hole.

I got $50 on the obama library is the first Presidential Library with a homicide.

Nah, how many of those thugs even know what a library is? It'll be the safest place on the South Side!

Rejecting the other necessary materials for a library in such a vacuous political career, what could be more fitting: no content.

Yeah, it took a second to process the article because two separate but related thoughts immediately started jostling for my attention. Who exactly is deciding what materials are relevant and get fully recorded online? And what exactly is going to happen to all of the originals after their having been put online?

Don't forget the mosque and the bath house.

If it has a basketball court you can pretty much guarantee a shooting there.

Oh, all the current residents will be displaced and resettled in Section 8 housing in what are currently good neighborhoods. Ya know, to help spread cultural diversity.

He has vowed that his presidential center will not be a tribute to him. It will instead be an institution for training the Barack Obamas and Michelle Obamas of the future.

At that meeting in Chicago, he promised that his library would be forward-looking, not backward. In his words, it would not be an "ego trip" that says to the world, " See what I did ."

*************

once President Trump gets done, that would be a small list.

For a President that probably never cracked open many books in his lifetime. How appropriate.

Having it all “In the Cloud” allows it to be revised as needed to be politically correct. Any time, anywhere. How convenient.
