Do you think Bush`s new presidential library that is said to cost half a billion dollars will help him leave a better legacy?

I don't care. I don't like him anyway.

Half a BILLION dollars is a bit much for a library, don't you think?

No, what a waste of money!

What, he hasn't already pissed away enough taxpayer money in the process of ruining his legacy?

Half a billion? Bloody Hell!

There's nothing he could do to leave a better legacy.

There are so many other areas the money could be used.

Why no, rather then giving one place millions of books, try to get new books for public schools. Last year (when i took latin) my books were from 1963! that would have been 43 years old at the time. The presidential library is just another waste of money. In my opinion.

I hope it helps him learn to read better :D

What's wrong with that? Has Latin made huge advances since 1963? LOL

Well, yeah he did start a war many people disagree with and subsequently have millions of people killed because of it but hey, he did have some cool books.

What's he going to have in his library?

He refuses to release any papers at all.

The way I read it, none of this is taxpayer money- - it's from donations...
