Debt Talks May Make Obama Miss B-day Party

From a tear soaked Associated Press:

Debt fight could force Obama to miss his birthday fund-raiser

July 26, 2011

WASHINGTON — The battle over the nation’s debt limit could mean that President Obama won’t get a chance to celebrate his birthday with a few thousand friends in Chicago next month, now that he’s canceling a round of upcoming fund-raisers.

Campaign officials yesterday said the president will not attend the Aug. 4 Chicago fund-raiser to mark his 50th birthday if the negotiations are still going on.

Obama had planned to celebrate in the city where he began his career with performances by Jennifer Hudson, jazz great Herbie Hancock and the rock band OK Go.

His campaign has postponed fund-raisers in California and Washington state in recent weeks, along with an event at the New York home of film mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Last night, Obama skipped two Washington fund-raisers to speak to the nation on the debt crisis.

Vice President Joe Biden was attending one of the Democratic National Committee events last night while the other was canceled.

As far as the news media is concerned, ‘it’s all about The O.’

By the way, the ticket prices for Obama’s birthday fundraiser go up to $35,800 a couple. – What recession?

Luckily, it will be rescheduled no matter what.

    So, the only thing Obama won’t be blowin’ are the candles on his cake. How ironic.

      At last we’ve found a way to make Obummer sweat and strain and expose himself as the inept sophomore he is, the Sophomore-in-Chief. Fact is, the Democrats really know they are dead if they can’t shovel the money in limitless quantities to their union and corporate cronies and fellow-looters of the national treasury.

      Since Andrew Jackson created the Democrat Party in the 1820’s, wealth redistribution has been their modus operandi. But Jackson, Wilson, and FDR never dreamed of the scale of corruption we’re seeing now.

    “It’s all because of those mean, mean Republicans I’m gonna miss my birthday party!” Barry the Bungler pouted as he stamped his foot. “It’s just not fair!”

      ….. “Debt Talks May Make Obama Miss B-day Party”…….

      OMG!!!!!! Should I call a waaaaaaaaaaambulance??!!

      And these fools wonder why newspaper circulation is falling off. This is news?

      I wonder if he ever thinks of the people who’ve been unemployed for months and months, and how many really important events they have missed because of not having a job. things like car payments, house payments, health insurance payments…….well, you get the idea. I am so sick of all this ME ME ME when it comes to Obama’s desires, and to hell with anybody else.

      What a petulant little piss-ant!

    • Natural Born Citizen says:

      The Redistributor-in-chief is obviously not thinking of “the folks” when his birthday fundraiser has tickets going for 38.5K per couple!

  3. Liberals Demise says:

    So does this mean I am too late to send a few boxes of gag cigars to the birthday “boy”?
    Btw……why doesn’t he just proclaim that the week of his hatching a week of “Festivist”.

    Obama’s Utopia

    Barack Obama’s hand-picked regime has 11 steps in bringing a total fascist, police state to the United States:

    “Everything Obama does comes straight from the most stilted and destructive clichés of the left. The man has never had an original idea in his life, and wouldn’t recognize one if it were served up on a plate with arugula. He is intellectually locked in concrete.”
