    There's a Construction webcam page here if this one falls short:

    The George W. Bush Library is in the works and will be 23 acres at the SMU Campus, and its stated mission is as follows:

    There are also some notes on what will be included in the library at the link



    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]Rising to 67 feet at the top of Freedom Hall, the George W. Bush Presidential Center is a modern brick and limestone structure that complements the American Georgian character of the SMU campus, set within an environmentally-sustainable native Texas landscape.

    In this setting, the Bush Center will become an integral part of the educational experience and campus life of 11,000 undergraduate and graduate students and the University faculty.
    The Design

    Designed by renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern and landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, the George W. Bush Presidential Center will house the 43rd president's library and museum as well as the Bush Institute.

    The center’s location is along the eastern edge of Southern Methodist University, the alma mater of former first lady Laura Bush. It is in the heart of Dallas and easily accessible to visitors. Utilizing green building materials and energy-efficient technologies, the Bush Center has been designed to attain Platinum certification, the highest possible distinction under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.

    What will be included is here:

    This library is a much-needed addition to the body of politics in the USA. President Bush served 8 years as our President, from January, 2001- January, 2009.

    Southern Methodist University. A connection to Laura Bush, I think?

    Yes, SMU is the University that First Lady Laura Bush attended, graduated and went on to fight illiteracy in her state and nation. George W. and Laura Bush are both Methodists, I think, which may have had a large influence on them for picking SMU.

    Fighting illiteracy and winning is a + not a -. ;)

    I think if you are the kind of person who is still angry about Bush, you can make jokes about coloring books.

    Obviously, any presidential library is going to present their guy in the best light. Clinton's glosses over all thing Monica and Nixon's glosses over Watergate.

    Edited.
    Actually, it was placed here in a flame-free zone, because everywhere else, certain factions would like to (1) Just shoot the former President, (2) Drag out the failed DNC Party Platform to drub the very idea that President and First Lady Laura Bush made human literacy in America their hallmark, used both his gubernatorial tenure as well as the Bully pulpit to give industries incentives to clean up brownfield waste areas and other contaminations careless handling of toxic materials foisted on the environment by initiating action in wetlands conservation, (3) Incarcerate and drag the President to a human rights court for permanent incarceration or execution for the gall of Congress giving him a free reign to stop Saddam Hussein from invading and killing his neighbors over small land grab plans he had, and (4) Use any reason under the sun to destroy conservatives during an election year by repeating a plethora of false allegations against President Bush used in 3 consecutive presidential elections and entering a fourth "it's all Bush's fault" contest as a way for spendaholics to maintain its foot to America's neck while it's politicians pick America's back pocket for nepotistic investments in themselves.

    I've seen people at USMB blame President Bush for starting a war that began after Germany gave Hitler dictatorial powers following his 1933 election as Chancellor of Germany by consulting with willing accomplices such as Jerusalem Mufti Haj Amin el-Husseini, who schmoozed with the Nazis in hopes they would decimate the Jewish population in Europe, and fled to Berlin when the British prevailed after the Arab Revolt of 1936-39. He moved to Iraq where British troops snuffed rebellion in 1941. The Mufti al Husseini took assylum in Germany where he constantly provoked the Germans to not just detain but to destroy German Jews. He egged Hitler on to keep the Jews in Hungary as he feared their immigration back to Palestine, told the guards at Auschwitz to use more killing against Jewish detainees, lobbied the SS to slaughter Jews in Bosnia, and they killed 90% of Bosnian Jews as a result of his incessant badgering. The only thing he demanded of Hitler for his help was for Hitler to kill all the Jews in Palestine after he won the war. Instead, after the war, the Mufti fled to Switzerland and then went to Cairo where he used his ill-gotten Nazi money to finance an Arab Liberation army to terrorize Jews who had always lived in Palestine. They were also told to seek, infiltrate, and kill Americans whose General Eisenhower smashed Hitler. That is how the war on America got started, and not after 9/11, which was just a message to the Muslims to cool it. From that time to this, Muslims have sought to assault Christians who opposed their pal Hitler, the Jews they couldn't assassinate in WWII on account of the British protecting their regional investments and America's attempt to remain neutral in the interests of trade in the early days of WWII. The Arab/Muslim/Nazi Connection

    It never ends. I hope President Bush's library includes a section that catalogs the conspiracies of Muslims and Hitler that resulted in so much pain for the United Nations charter for the nation of Israel where actually, Israelis have lived since the dawn of human history.

    President Bush did not "start" any war. He merely fought back at the one that arose over Hitler's covetousness of England's successful oil finds in the Middle East that made many Arabs wealthy and their leaders, kings.

    The press would like America not to know this. I hope the Bush Library presents this case, at least in part.

    Del, thanks for asking. I hope you find that a library at Southern Methodist University that tells the truth of what happened during President Bush's presidency will countermand massive attempts of the press, some of who have benefitted greatly in the past several decades from Middle Eastern murderous politicos who paid them royally for saying nice things in the Western World's press about them. That is why I put this thread in a place where courtesy is required.

    I heard the George W Bush Library will contain all the books he has ever read. The complete collection of Dick and Jane books, The Pet Goat and Clifford the Big Red Dog ( though some claim he only looked at the pictures on that one. )
