W's Presidential library..at $500M, set to be the most expensive in history!


President Bush and his admirers are planning to break the record on spending when they put together his presidential library...at an expected price tag of half a billion dollars!

The library and the accompanying think tank are expected to be built at Southern Methodist University (SMU), where First Lady Laura Bush is an alumna and sits on the board of trustees.

Donations are expected to come from what the fundraisers call "megadonations" of $10 million to $20 million a pop.

Sources already identified include wealthy heiresses, Arab nations and captains of industry as potential "mega" donors and fundraisers are pressing for a formal site announcement - now expected early in the new year.

For the record, both Bush senior and Bill Clinton received 7 figure sums from people like the Saudis, the Sabah family (they run Kuwait) and the UAE for their libraries.

Apparently Dubbya will be getting funds from the same sources.

Nice.

Why not the arabs fund his library. A coupla years ago most public libraries were being funded by CAIR and other Islamic orgs.
Just another sign of the times I guess.
