Considering the recent questions from Republican Senator Charles Grassley to NASA about the sweetheart deal H211 has been getting from NASA Ames, I cannot see how the president would want to get involved in anything involving H211. A scandal would negatively impact his re-election.

Wow.. you know you're trouble when you "hope" 20 whole people will show up for you demonstration. Out of the 80,000 that live in Mountain View. Awesome.
That will send a clear message to the President.
No one really cares about that Hangar. It's time to let it go.

Hundreds of people have showed up for hours-long public meetings to support preserving the Hangar, and thousands have signed petitions. As far as sweetheart deals, I would agree that when a private entity offers to pay to preserve a federally owned historic structure and then offer up use back the the government use of about a third of the building, that is a sweetheart deal. For the government. And the community. Because while there are always a few naysayers, Hangar One is a local landmark and icon, there's no reason it can't inspire future residents of the area as it has for many decades. Most people I've talked to about the Hangar get that.
