Here is George Bush's presidential library website www.georgewbushlibrary.com...

now take the "w" out of it.... www.georgebushlibrary.com...

doesn't this violate the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) of 1999. Which states that ..
* the trademark owner’s mark is distinctive or famous;
* the domain name owner acted in bad faith to profit from the mark; and
* the domain name and the trademark are either identical or confusingly similar (or dilutive for famous trademarks).

Doubtful that the site is "owned" by Obama.

Created: 1999-08-07
Expires: 2009-08-07

It was registered in '99 for a period of 10 years. Seems whomever the owner is just felt it funny to implement a redirect to the Pres's website.

The site's been changed several times over the years.

[edit: to add]
The owner "web of deception" seems to have done the same for several other domains they've purchased.

Google: web of deception
