Let Obama fund library

Published: Monday, May 12, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

There is absolutely no reason to ask the taxpayers of Illinois to fund $100 million for Barack Obama’s proposed presidential library in Chicago.

To fund a shrine to Barack Hussein Obama’s abject failed presidency, which is an ongoing, unmitigated disaster, is ludicrous.

Obama promised hope and change. He has delivered fear and devastating uncertainty.  Obama promised transparency. He has delivered stonewalling, smoke, mirrors and obfuscation.

Obama has proved to be an incompetent litigator, an ineffective national and world leader and a blatant, habitual liar. Obama’s mindset and skill set preclude his ability to legislate, so he has chosen to dictate.

Obama is, however, a gifted fundraiser and unsurpassed community organizer. At the end of his term, and considering that he will not be able to coronate himself and his wife to be King Barack and Queen Michelle, I suggest he use that gift to fund his own library.

Indeed, let the regime supporters and those that still drink his tainted libation give generously.

Please leave the rest of us out of it and don’t add insult to injury.
