Stupid Looking Obama Center To Cost Illinois Taxpayers Nearly $200 Million

Well over 8 years ago, Candidate Obama somehow got Joe The Plumber publicly put down by the press for telling him he wanted to spread the wealth around.
And whose wealth does a self-proclaimed socialist want to spread around? Never his.
By the way, there will be no books in this Obamanation's shrine to himself. Barry's legacy is not into libraries.
To be fair, the infrastructure surrounding the center is to be improved by some of the $200 million. To enhance the beauty of the eyesore, I suppose.

    That building is a great tribute to Obama: says nothing, means nothing, stands for nothing. Except for himself, in the vast desert of ignorance and hatred.

    Not surprisingly, Emanuel is singing his glory: another one of the corrupt left, with an ability to survive against all odds, a la Alinsky.

    Then there is his planned burial site, which features Roman columns and a life-sized statue of himself!
    All this while he is plotting the overthrow of the sitting POTUS with Valerie Jarrett, which I believe is illegal. Only Chicago could give the US a man who was a gay prostitute in Hawaii (Manning Report), frequented gay bars in Chicago (Larry Sinclair book),liked abut his parentage and his children as well. Yet taxpayers are supposed to shell out millions for his non-existent legacy? Which is what, attempting to foist Marxism on the country we love!

      Hey, The Anointed One won the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing before he even had a chance to totally screw up the Middle East.
      Now if all that claptrap ain't historic as a Mointy Python skit from hell, me dino don't know what is!

        Strange how inciting unceasing hate and resentment in his followers gets him a peace prize. Using that criteria, Hitler would probably earn Man of the Year.

          Excuse if you were being sarcastic, but Hitler WAS Time Magazines “Man of the Year” in 1938...but their criteria is not “good or evil”...but having the most world impact...in that sense Time was prescient...

            I wonder why Bin Laden didn’t win Man of the Year? He caused an awful lot of world impact. Although, the tactics used by the American government made things a lot worse, for its own people.

              Logical, but Bin Laden was too obviously evil for even Time...Hitler, in 1938, was still considered a “respectable world leader”...that year included a conference with Neville Chamberlain and other leaders at which they “peacefully” carved up Europe to placate Hitler through appeasement. So, he was not seen for what he turned out to be...and “Peace in Our Time” lasted about a year...

    No Ayn Rand books available just critiques of her
    Work. The building looks like the work of Peter Keating!

    I was vainly trying to compare the Obama monument to anything I have experienced in my 84 years. It is so ugly in a controversial way, the only thing I could think of to describe it is a bit of Shakespeare, "Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." As to the cost, I must say that all Presidential monuments, libraries, museums, are way too high in cost.. They should limit the cost to that of building a new library in a mid-sized town. How do grand pillars and marble floors tell you anything about the former President other than he was an enormous spender. Except for this monument. Even when leaving office, Obama has managed to cheat the people by overpricing what appears to be the left hand corner of an unfinished Mayan temple, or the spoor of a concrete T-Rex.

      That spoor would more likely come from Godzilla.
      One thing me dino found most particularly ugly about the Obamanation bowel movement was that anyone who stood up against his politically correct job-killing and socialist "I want to spread the wealth around" policies were called racists.
      During the King Barry Regime, I recall a female caller to the Hannity radio show saying she would not criticize The Anointed One's polices because she was scared to death of being accused of racism.

    It's weird they don't just build something similar to other presidential libraries. Is it just Obama's ego or part of a plan?

      Welcome to The Gulch, Andy.
      Later today I thought of the Obama Center while cleaning out a closet and fantasized how me dino would construct an entrance gate.
      It would be the size of the gates for the Jurassic Park ride but covered with reliefs of singing angels and amplified music would be provided. That "Joy To The World" Christmas song may be an idea. A rainbow archway over the gate would state~
      "Shrine Of The One, The Anointed One, The Most Holy Him, THE PROGRESSIVE MESSIAH OF HOPE AND CHANGE!"
      As you pass through the gate, the music changes to that "Hallelujah! Hallelujah!" Christmas song.
      What me dino would really like to hang up somehow is a line from Dante's Inferno~"Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here" but I don't think I could get away with that.
