The school is not disclosing how much it is paying the former president to appear, but says its fee will go toward construction of Bush’s presidential library in Dallas.

On Thursday, President Barack Obama returns home to Chicago for a fundraiser at Navy Pier benefiting the Democratic National Committee as he prepares for the 2012 election.

It President Obama’s first fundraiser since he formally announced his reelection effort last week. His campaign will be headquartered at the Prudential Building, 130 E. Randolph Dr.

    Correction: President Barack Obama’s main focus will be to instruct U.S.Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald not to implicate in in any way, shape or form in the upcoming trial of Rod Blagojevich…and to limit the mention of his name, in return he will be rewarded with the Director of the FBI job….The ultimate ‘quid pro quo’, …no one swims in the river Chicago and comes out smelling like a rose.

  • It's Bush's fault Obammi cries

    Two Presidents. One the pointer and the other the pointee. Obammi will use his time to say it’s Bush’s fault. And Bush will be classy as he has always been. Oh, that’s the difference between Demorat and Republican.
