Obama’s 50th Birthday a Massive Campaign Event


obama2With the debt ceiling debate now behind him, President Obama is turning his 50th birthday into a massive, nation-wide campaign event and fundraiser, complete with a lavish bash in Chicago tonight and related fundraisers around the country.

Obama will travel to Chicago this afternoon and kick off the festivities with remarks to the hundreds of parties being held across the nation by members of Obama for America 2012.

The campaign is calling these gatherings “meetings across the country to continue laying the groundwork for the 2012 campaign” that just happen to coincide with the real Chicago-based bacchanals, but we know better. This is a national celebration.

Then the real fun begins at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, where guests will pay from $50 to the maximum donation limit of $35,800 to attend an initial party and fundraiser featuring about 1,000 guests. Performers will include Jennifer Hudson, Herbie Hancock, and the band OK Go.

Afterward, Obama will host a smaller gathering of several dozen people who shelled out the biggest bucks.

Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times reveals that Obama surrogates will be hosting special birthday themed fundraisers around the country today: Robert Gibbs will be in Boston, David Plouffe in Tampa; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York City; David Axelrod in Los Angeles; and Donna Brazille will be in Oakland.

A separate party in the Rose Garden Thursday, the day of his actual birthday, cannot by law be money-related – at least not directly.

  1. My wife and I were in slow-moving traffic the other day and we were stopped behind a car that had an unusual Obama bumper sticker on it.
    It read: “Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8”.

    When we got home my wife got out the Bible and opened it up to the scripture. She started laughing & laughing. Then she read it to me. I couldn’t believe what it said. I had a good laugh, too.

    Psalm 109:8 ~ “Let his days be few and brief; and let others step forward to replace him.”

    At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray.
    Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN?

  2. i am fifty years old now i am fifty years olllddd nooww i am fifty years old now i am fifty years old now! yaaaay he sucha a big boy!

  3. It’s downhill from here!

    (Sorry to those who were “offended” that I spelled his name incorrectly)

    I’m sure you concur that his presidency has been a bomb for us here in this country as well as those of our brethren in Eretz Yisrael. For the head of state to have left the head of state of any other country to sit in the guest seat at the oval office and leave “to go eat dinner with his family” he deserves NO accolades! Shameful and embarrassing! Hence his name spelled as I did! But sorry again that YOU were offended!)

  4. Wait a minute! Are my tax dollars going to pay for his personal lavish trips? Huckabee, will you please reconsider, and run again?
