Michelle, kids to miss Obama's 49th birthday celebrations
Times of India ^ | 8-1-10

Posted on 08/02/2010 8:58:43 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

CHICAGO: US President Barack Obama will celebrate his 49th birthday in the company of his friends in Chicago and not with his wife and two daughters.

The White House said that Obama will leave Washington for Chicago on Wednesday and will stay at his home in Kenwood for the night, Chicago Sun-Times reported.

First lady Michelle Obama will not be with the president. She will leave next week for Spain, travelling with daughter Sasha, 9. Malia, 12, for an overnight camp.

Obama, born on August 4, 1961, in Honolulu, was last in Chicago with his family over the Memorial Day weekend in May last.

Obama is scheduled to attend three fund-raisers and to tour a Ford plant.

On August 5, Obama plans to attend fund-raisers for Illinois Democratic Senate nominee Alexi Giannoulias at the Palmer House Hilton at USD 1,000 to 2,400 per person, and for the DNC, a dinner at the home of developer Neil Bluhm for 50 people, at USD 30,400 per person, and a USD 250-per-person reception at the Chicago Cultural Center.

White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel -- interested in running for mayor of Chicago if Mayor Daley decides not to seek another term -- is likely to accompany Obama to the fund -raising events to reconnect with some of his Chicago friends.

White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett is also coming.

Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee's Organising for America grass-roots arm is using his birthday as an organising tool.

E-mails have been sent out under Michelle Obama's signature urging people to sign an electronic birthday card for the president. The gambit lets the DNC capture contact information and build mailing lists.

Michelle said in the e-mail, "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."

Actually, I think this has more to do with the Muslim question.

Christian people celebrate their birthdays, Muslims do not. The O has stated that they do not celebrate birthdays.

I don't want to say that he IS a Muslim; but, I think he has Muslim sensibilities. Also, see bowing to everyone.

Obama, born on August 4, 1961, in Honolulu, was last in Chicago with his family over the Memorial Day weekend in May last.

..........................................................
Correction :

Obama was born sometime in 1961, in a hospital in Kenya and registered in the US some time later, was last in Chicago with his family over the Memorial Day weekend in May last.

There thats better.

“Did she fail English in school?”

Cut her some slack. Princeton grades on the curve, especially for Affirmative Action students. Plus, she’s just a ‘me’ kind of gal. Me, me, me, me-that’s Michelle.

Do I have to say it? /s

You wouldn't expect a narcissist to put herself last now would you.;-)

BTW, as I recall, her Princeton thesis was pathetic in terms of style and usage. A typical high school junior could have done a better job.

Obama will be having a b-day fete at the home of real estate mogul Neil Bluhm which requires a $30,000 donation to the Decmocrat National Committee.

******

Neil Bluhm - Chicago real estate titan’s gamble on casinos paying off despite sour economy. In 2008 won coveted license to build new gambling joint outside O’Hare airport; plans to share revenues with downtrodden neighboring towns. Opened Pittsburgh’s Rivers Casino in August 2009, handled $14 million in wagers on opening day. Lead equity investor in SugarHouse Casino, which broke ground in Philadelphia in October. Former lawyer founded JMB Realty with U. of Illinois roommate 1970, grew into one of nation’s largest developers. Also partner in Walton Street Capital; firm plans to invest $1.5 billion in real estate.

http://images.forbes.com/media/lists/10/2010/neil-bluhm.jpg

Net Worth: $1.5 bil

******

He gave the maximum individual donation to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, and also raised an estimated $200,000 as a fund-raiser.

Just before Christmas, his company, Midwest Gaming and Entertainment LLC, beat out two competitors to build a casino in suburban Des Plaines, near Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The company was the lowest of three bidders for the state’s only unused casino license which had been mired in legal and administrative disputes for a decade.

******

Neil Bluhm’s home... (I thought Obama told us people shouldn’t be this rich because, at some point, ‘you have earned enough money’)!

Too bad a private investigator couldn’t track his comings and goings the entire time he’s in Chicago to see where he visits (or if he has any late night visitors to his suite)!

Obama, ALLEGEDLY born on August 4, 1961, in Honolulu, of which there has been no definitive proof provided. Obama continues to have contempt for the citizens of the USA by refusing to release his birth documents that would show the American people what hospital he was born in and the name of the delivering doctor.

I'm convinced that any religious sympathies Obama has are Muslim in nature.

Do I think he prays to Mecca five time a day? No. He's too much of a communist for that.

But he's emotionally far more of a Muslim than he is a Christian.

He pretends to be a Christian, just like he pretends to identify with African-Americans even though his upbringing has nothing to do with theirs.

I wonder whether he eats pork. Seriously, it would be interesting to know.

Why is Ford letting this guy in to tour one of their plants? I would not let this guy anywhere near a Ford plant. I don’t care if he wants to see why they didn’t need his bailout or he wants some tips to run GM better, stay the hell out of Ford, Obummer.

Maybe the first vaca Michelle has had without Reggie in a long time

She: “Honey, next vacation we leave Reggie home or me go without you....
He: “ uh uh uh Buh bye”
She: “and I ain’ taking the DOG! So make sure Reggie scoop the poop!”

The O has stated that they do not celebrate birthdays.

Obama never said they didn't celebrate the kids' birthdays. What they said was that they don't load them up with gifts. They have parties. Sasha Obama Celebrates 9th Birthday With a Pizza Party

Here's the original quote from People Magazine that started this whole thing:

PEOPLE: Someone told me today that you don't do birthday presents.
Michelle: No, because we spend hundreds of dollars on a birthday party and movie tickets and pizza and popcorn ...
Barack: That sleepover is enough. We want to teach some limits to them. And their friends bring over presents.
Michelle: They get so much stuff that it just becomes numbing. Malia believes there is still a Santa Claus even though she's a little wary because some of her friends are non-believers. But Malia says, "Ma, I know there is a Santa because there's no way you'd buy me all that stuff." [Laughing]

PEOPLE:So what does a slumber party at the Obama house look like?
Barack: They're pretty noisy.
Michelle: The older they get, they just talk a lot. But they're at the age where they're pretty self-sufficient. [For Malia's birthday] we're going to go swimming, see Wall-E, make pizzas, have sundaes.

By any measure, the Kenyan Clown is an odd duck, but among the occupants of the Oval Office, the Kenyan Clown clearly ranks as the most personally bizarre.

And this comes on the very same day that the New York Post is reporting that Obama supporters pay $30,000 each for dinner with the President, but he eats alone in another room.

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."

Not only bad grammar, but why did she even write that? It seems so forced. Something is strange about the comment. I know they do not celebrate birthdays, so perhaps she was advised she must say something. Or, was she trying to make it look like Obama's family will be with him another year, when actually they are tired of the whole scene and would rather not be in Washington but just want to reassure him they will stay. (Remember, MaBelle is going to a friend's villa in Spain with the girls, not staying around for Zero's pretend birthday.) In all, it seems to be a very strange comment --- totally devoid of love or affection. But then, I have always felt there is no love between these two, and hasn't been for many years. Another "opportunistic" marriage in politics.

Facebook has an ad concerning the signing of the asshole’s birthday. I deleted the ad and FB wanted to know why.

One of the reasons why the ad was deleted was - It offends me.

Yep, I picked that reason, lol.
