How, um, thoughtful. First Lady Michelle Obama is gathering card signatures for her husband’s upcoming birthday. Presumably, this will make up for Mrs. Obama’s absence on hubby’s birthday. She won’t be there to celebrate because, as you know, she’ll be vacationing (again!) on your dime in Spain. (Laura Ingraham, whose Obama Diaries tops the NYTimes best-seller list this week, is right: You can’t discern Obama fact from fiction anymore.) Sasha will be accompanying her mom. Daughter Malia will also miss Dad’s birthday. She’s away at camp.
Here’s the Organizing for America invitation from Michelle Obama that arrived in my email box this morning:
Every year, our family tries to come up with a fun way to wish Barack a happy birthday.
And this August 4th, when he turns 49, I have something new in mind.
This has been a big — and hectic — year for him. After signing the Affordable Care Act and Wall Street reform into law — and completing his first year as president — I think it’s safe to say we will remember it for a long time.
And I know full well how much he credits this movement, and the work of supporters like you, for the change that we’ve accomplished.
So I’m putting together a birthday card that I would like you to sign. Together with other Organizing for America supporters — and me, Malia, Sasha, and Bo — we’ll wish him a happy birthday and let him know that we’re ready to take on the year ahead alongside him.
Will you wish Barack a happy birthday with me?
Wish Barack a happy birthday
This year also brought a lot of surprises — some good and some bad.
Supporters like you have helped him make the best of it — by contacting Congress to help push stalled legislation forward, by re-engaging supporters in the political process, by giving back with service projects across the country, and so much more.
And while we can’t know what the coming year will bring, all of us, working together, will continue pushing forward for change.
Will you help make this a memorable birthday for Barack and wish him a happy 49th?
Thanks so much,
Feel free to send your condolences to Lonely Barry.blog comments powered by Disqus
