BIRTH STATE?...I didn't know that he was born in the United States?...What a joke!

Obama presidential library in his birth state would have economic impact for Hawaii

HONOLULU — A Barack Obama presidential library in Honolulu could be an economic boon for the islands.
Officials who submitted Hawaii's bid for the facility on Monday said it would generate $556 million in economic activity and create 2,130 new jobs in the construction phase alone, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser ( ) reported.

The University of Hawaii, state and city of Honolulu filed initial paperwork to the Barack Obama Foundation to host the Barack Obama Presidential Center.
The submission from the state where Obama was born and graduated from high school was one of 13 received by the foundation.

The Hawaii bid said the presidential library would be built on eight acres of Hawaii Community Development Authority land in Kakaako. The location offers sweeping views from Diamond Head to the Waianae Range, according to a website detailing the proposal.
It would include an interactive museum and visitor center, presidential archive and global youth leadership academy.

Once open, it would attract an estimated 330,000 visitors annually. The newspaper said it would be one of the city's top five cultural attractions.
