oops what happened to the mass media lies abt bush being unpopular Bush: $100 million in 100 days for library at SMU Even with the recession, former President George W. Bush is off to a quick start in fundraising $300 million for his presidential library and policy center in Dallas. As TIME reports, Bush has raised $100 million in 100 days. That's the same amount that former president Bill Clinton hoped to raise in a year--and fell short because of a pardon scandal, according to the magazine. Donors to presidential libraries can donate unrestricted amounts of money. As the story explains, the Bush team has turned to a campaign model to reach its goal, with a national finance committee and 100 co-chairs in each state. Seems like it's working. "Considering the current economic climate, we're very pleased with where we are," Rob Saliterman, a Bush foundation spokesman, recently told the Morning News.
