    Yeah......that childs book he was reading UPSIDE DOWN to those children while New York city was being destroyed should have a very prominent position in his library.

    Talk about a monument to stupidity! :biggrin1:

    Though frankly why does every single president have to get a library in his name/honor? They are hella expensive and with produxts like Kindle and other ebooks aren't librarys becoming passe`?

    How about we give each exiting President and First Lady a nice Movado or maybe a gold Rolex Chronograh. Maybe a signet ring to the most exclusive club in the world, POTUS.

    When Reagan was Governor of California, the Legislature passed a spending bill to build a new Governor's Mansion. When it was almost finished news reporters invited on a tour noticed there was only one bookshelf in the lounge/study area just big enough for a small collection of Readers Digest books. A very small collection.

    I think that's all we should earmark for Bush: enough money to build a free-standing room that has a DYI book case from Staples to hold all of the books he read during his presidency. It may be only one shelf is necessary.

    You're too kind. We should replace the book case with a toy chest and a training potty if you ask me. :biggrin1:

    the title of this thread made me think maybe there should be presidential BREWERIES instead of libraries. I bet they'd create a tourist boom way bigger than any stuffy library would.

    and they could theme it to tie in with each president's background/ethinicity/place in history.

    eg:

    Lincoln could be a kentucky bourbon distillery

    Clinton could be a moonshine still in AR

    Reagan could be a napa winery

    Taft could be bathtub Gin

    Obama could be Colt 45

    Kennedy could be a bloody mary

    feel free to add your own favorites to this list.

    I wager all the juicy stuff will be sealed for centuries or destroyed. Presidential libraries are such Ozymandian things. One last monument to a man's vanity.

    The Romans only honored their better emperors with posthumous temples.

    Baptists are just Methodists that can't read.

    Groundbreaking for the George W. Bush Presidential Center is scheduled for the fall of 2010, with the grand opening expected in the spring of 2013. The center will have three parts &#8212; a library, where Bush&#8217;s papers will be stored; a museum of exhibits; and a policy institute, with plans for such novel programs as conversations with retired international leaders about their time in office. ........................Bush's papers? you mean like toilet paper, paper towels a failed policy institute and last but no least novel programs. what a waste of money. i have not talked to any smu alum that thinks this is a wonderful idea and you know how them frat boys are.

    This is charming.:rolleyes:

    When making cutting remarks regarding a man and his intelligence level it helps to present your case without blunders.

    Admit it, you're green with envy on so many levels.






    An Internet search shows the building project is running smoothly. I'd been wondering and am pleased that in the near future it will be completed.


    (I make blunders but then again I don't pretend that I'm better than the 3rd greatest President ever)

    I've been wondering why do you keep resurrecting LONG dormant threads? You've been doing this quite a but as of late. THIS thread died almost 2 years ago.

    did it? Well wow, just wow.

    I find threads by entering a word in the search engine here at LPSG and then the threads appear. This began when a member asked about the Kindle "anyone use a Kindle on here"
    and I thought there were past threads on it. Then this thread appeared & I was curious how the project was going & did a Google.com search. Then made a response in the thread. Didn't notice when it had last been active.

    Is there a time limit when threads can't be getting any new entries? I checked the rules and it's not currently listed unless I missed it.

    the ESPN notebooks alone will take up many square feet in the "library", not to mention the comic book AYN RAND fiction/fantasy section. and yes, lets paint it green to match Daddy Warbucks W and his fave ingredient: living off other people's money!!!!
