Dueling Still Continues at SMU Over Bush's Whitewash of Himself for History

8 February 2007 at 10:52:45 AM

that is, not just his library but his policy think tank in which he will hire people to write articles favorable to him. (Well, SOMEONE'S GOT TO, right? I mean, he is the WORST president in History and if he doesn't cough up some money to people to write good things about him, who would do it for free?)

SMU's president says that you can't have the think tank without the library; ie, it's a package deal. But there are those who think Bush's think tank will hurt SMU's reputation.

An online petition organized by a group of Methodist ministers calling for SMU to drop the library bid had garnered nearly 10,300 signatures as of Wednesday night, three weeks after it began. Some signatures and comments are from supporters.

One organizer, the Rev. Andrew J. Weaver of Brooklyn, N.Y., said he is pleased with the response - although the church has 8 million members and 45,000 clergy in the U.S.

He said he plans to keep the petition going for at least another month and then will present it to the United Methodist Church's South Central Jurisdiction as the university seeks permission to sell or lease land for the project.

Ironic that Methodists don't see Bush's actions as being very, um, Methodist. You'd think Bush would go somewhere else to peddle this, since he doesn't seem to be wanted at SMU.
