Reagan’s Childhood Home To Become Parking Lot for Obama’s Library

7:21 pm, Feb 2, 2013 – CALVIN’S COMMENTARY UPDATE…I PRESENT BOTH SIDES — SO HERE’S THE OTHER SIDE — FIRST, SECOND THE ORIGINAL POST.

There seems to be some questions regarding this story.  According to Michael Reagan’s Twitter account, he wrote:

Michael Reagan @ReaganWorld
Pls.For the last time my fathers real boyhood homes in Tampico and Dixon are fine.PLEASE dont buy into the Chicago story.
10:54 PM – 31 Jan 13

(Now I know that Twitter accounts can be faked too, so who knows if this Twitter post is true or not??????)

According to a friend of mine she wrote that she read that President Reagan lived only a few months in that apartment and did not remember living there, and added, “If Michael is not upset, I will wait and see. Chicago is a strange town..Thanks, Donna, for all you do.”

……………………………………………………………………

Calvin’s Commentary: This is disgraceful! Most ignoble on the part of all the Democrats who control everything that happens in Chicago (the city where this is happening). I seriously doubt if they would be building that parking lot if it were Clinton’s, Jimmy Carter’s, JFK’s or the #1 leading socialist, their patron saint, FDR’s childhood home. Why? I think it’s because communists know they MUST destroy all historical connections of a generation to brainwash them. And the commies in the USA’s government (just say Democrats) want to destroy our conservative past history. It’s just part of their plot to rewrite history for their advantage.Donna Calvin ▬ Friday, February 1, 2013

Comment from the friend of Watchwoman, named Bruce, who alerted me to this ignoble act of bigotry and hatred responding to  their statement that President Ronald Reagan did nothing noble while he lived there . . . “That’s because he was a kid (when he lived there), but they’ll get their kicks by placing a ‘victory library’, so to speak, over it, much like the muslim custom of building over a defeated enemies landmarks.  I seriously doubt if they would be building that parking lot if it were a Clinton childhood home.”

 

The University of Chicago Medical Center has announced plans to turn Ronald Reagan’s childhood home in Chicago into a parking lot for President Barack Obama’s library.

The Commission on Chicago Landmarks previously denied the Gipper’s home landmark status in 2012, according to The Washington Times, and the university subsequently scheduled demolition to begin in January. Officials claim the home does not reach landmark status because it is not architecturally significant and the nation’s 40th president did nothing notable while living there.

With the wrecking balls in place, it could be 90 days or less before the home is knocked down. In its place, a plaque would serve as the marker of the historic spot, according to university representatives.

Reagan was 4 when his family moved to the 832 E. 57th St. home in the Hyde Park District of the Windy City.

    Magnolia, Google this “Ronald Reagan 832 E. 57th St. home in the Hyde Park District” and you’ll get so many hits that I think you might find all the answers to all your questions. The University apparently owns it and they refuse to discuss their plans openly but inside sources claim they have discussed razing it – and that info comes from the Chicago Sun Times. There’s articles in Canadian newspapers that confirm the demolition story. There’s nothing on snopes.com — nothing to dispute it — nothing to confirm it — that I could find.

    Check out this link: http://washingtonexaminer.com/hyde-park-showdown-over-reagans-childhood-home/article/2515272 – lots of info there…including…

    Quote:
    “Regarding the commission’s latter finding, not only were Reagan’s Chicago years formative, helping shape his winning personality and desire to help others, but he survived a near-fatal bout of pneumonia while living there, making his later life possible. A kindly neighbor gave Dutch a set of lead soldiers to play with and, as his lungs recovered, he would while away the hours re-enacting the battles taking place in Europe at the dawn of World War I.”

    “What does Mayor Rahm Emanuel have to say about this epic battle now taking place in Chicago? The mayor’s office has yet to get back to me.”
