Obama Foundation Is Quitting Chicago



The Obama Foundation officially announced this morning that Barack Obama’s presidential library will call Chicago home. It is not clear, however, where the Obamas will be heading after the White House.

The offices of the Barack Obama Foundation, currently based in Chicago, will be relocated to New York. Columbia University has offered the president land in West Harlem.

White House officials declined to comment on where the family was planning to live. Kwame Raoul, the Democrat who now holds Obama’s old state senate seat, told Bloomberg that the location of the library was more important than where the Obamas live. “Given that they are going to be ex-president and ex-first lady, where their so-called permanent home is seems less relevant,” he said.

  1. He still has the right to stay in the whitehouse for 5 more years because its public housing just like section 8 regulations

  2. They are following in the Clinton’s path. They will “move” to New York. This way, Michelle will run for Senate, just like Hillary did, and the dumb stupid ignorant “I don’t want to be “perceived” as a racist” voters will overwhelmingly vote her in. Then, after sitting around for a few years, she will run for President against Hillary, proclaiming: ITS NOW TIME FOR A BLACK FEMALE PRESIDENT. Dont say i didnt warn you.

  3. I just hope that the millions of Chicago’s residents do not all decide “k’ish echod b’leiv echod” that if the President is leaving this great city then they will all follow him out too….Heaven forbid that the city becomes a ghost town!…..Kol zman shetsadik boir etc….
