Bush's Propaganda Think Tank to be Housed in Same Building as HIs Library at SMU

11 January 2009 at 11:15:12 AM

Originally, as readers here know, the library was supposed to be in a separate building than the Bush policy insttitue, which is an attempt to make Bush the Lesser look good. AND was and continues to be fought by people in the religious community as well as some at SMU. But, for whatever reason, now they'll both be in the same building. I think I read recently that Bush's donations to his think tank are way way down, so maybe they don't have the MONEY to put them in separate buildings. Anyway, from the DMN.

The role of the institute on the college campus has been the focus of critics. Some Methodists have objected to putting the institute on church-owned land, saying that some Bush policies conflict with church teachings. And some faculty members have questioned whether it will play a role similar to the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace, a conservative policy center at Stanford University.

Dr. Tex Sample, a retired clergyman who has been urging Methodist leaders to withdraw permission for SMU to host the facility, said he remains concerned. The institute "represents the use of the university and the Methodist property to subsidize a point of view," he said.

At SMU, Turner said visitors will be able to tell the difference between the government-owned library and the foundation-run institute.

"You still end up having a separation that's required," he said.
