Barry Obama unveiled the design for his "presidential" library in Chicago today.  It's what you expected.   It's going to be built in a park (Jackson Park),  where it's not particularly wanted,  even though there are many empty lots all over the south side.  Obama Says Presidential Library Will Be 'Transformational'.   

I would call it what it is,  ugly.  It has this tall part that looks like a middle finger.   But I guess it matches the ugly regime that is connected to it.

It also blocks off a major commuting road too (Cornell Drive),  for a final f@ck you to working people.

I was so hoping that Chicago would be spared this too.

The picture I saw reminded me of the Morlock temple from "The Time Machine" (1960). If I had the Photoshop skills I would overlay a picture of Øbongo with the temple.

The sad thing is, only a couple blocks away,  the same architects designed the new art department building for the University of Chicago.    It's a really nice looking building,  with a very similar massing,  but not in a park and not as flashy looking.    I think its how they got the library job.   

Sounds like Barry sent them back the drawing board at some point,  I wonder what the first proposal looked like.   I am guessing it's not the turd we are looking at now.    I am guessing it was far nicer,  and probably didn't impose on the park like this thing will do.

That is truly one hideous design!  I say they run with it...something resembling a giant dino-turd is a fitting reminder of what a stupendous embarrassment the SCoaMF was and still is!

FU Chicago!

When did this whole presidential library thing start?  Why has it become an unquestioned fact that ex-presidents should construct monuments to themselves after leaving office?

I think with most things with a moronic genesis they came to full fruition as never before with effing FDR!

It's where I heap most the blame anyway!

Library...without library materials?!   ::laughonfloor::

It's not a fvcking library then!  It's a Stalinist Era Monument to Nothingness!!!  An Albert Speer like planned community for perpetuating the propaganda and false narrative of Duh Wun and his ongoing mission to fundamentally destroy America, American Exceptionalism and all-things American!

Hoist the Obamunist colors!

  I think that the reason for not having his documents stored there is because it would be too easy to get to and change the names from Presidential documents to "Evidence" in a trial for treason.

Yes, they'll never let anybody near his vault on Mars...or the jig would be up.  Oh dear, what a pun!

 I know who I am and where I have to be in politics and the gutter is where it is so I live there with them.
