The University of Chicago, where Obama taught and which employed Michelle Obama and several of Obama’s cronies, recently purchased the apartment building. They intend to destroy it to make room for a parking lot.

Chicago, led by former Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, has been trying to wipe out Reagan’s history in the city for a while now. Just last year the Commission on Chicago Landmarks refused to declare Reagan’s childhood home a landmark.
