If Barack Obama were a building, Part II

what building would Barack Obama be?


HB! reader “Fifth Way” commented…

The Seattle Public Library: forward-looking, intelligent, jazzy, cool, open to all (even the homeless), filled with ideas and art and computers and a fun auditorium and people from all over and commerce (a shop and coffee cart) and books for learning everywhere. In many ways, it functions like infrastructure. The original library sign in contained within, but its surface is striking and new. All this and it’s on the Pacific Rim, from an international design team. Hooray for Barack!


Great comparison! Seattle Public Library is one of the smartest, boundary-pushing buildings of our age. It strongly supports the city and supports international, interconnected, what they call “cosmopolitan,” citizenship.

If Barack Obama were a building, what building do YOU think he would be?

    Where is the liberal outrage when Obama kills civilians?
    President Bush was criticized for attacks against Al Qeada that sometimes killed civilians. Even candidate Barack Obama was critical. Will liberals now start calling Barack Obama a murderer? I suspect they will just look the other way.

    I think a building that represents Obama will look something like a mansion in ruins: http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1126/1422688839_fda522476e.jpg?v=0
    Especially with his socialist aspect to shearing the wealth….

    Interesting, given that his own house in Chicago looks like this:

    Yikes, I come to this site for something “beautiful,” not political rants. Let’s leave that to Rush or the Huffington Post…
