Skip to comments.Obama plans lavish 50th birthday bash for day after debt-limit deadline
Posted on 07/15/2011 12:26:31 PM PDT by CedarDave
One day after the government is set to default on its debts, Barack Obama could be the guest of honor at a 50th birthday celebration where the cost of attendance tops out at $35,800 per couple.
Okay, it's not likely if the government defaults that the president will be partying it up.
But the timing of Obama's Aug. 3 birthday bash is raising some eyebrows.
The White House said earlier this week the president's Aug. 3 party could be canceled if a deal is not reached by Aug. 2. As of now, however, the event is "not on hold," ...

How is it a birthday bash when you are charging people to be there?
“Okay, it’s not likely if the government defaults that the president will be partying it up. “
Are you kidding?! If the US defaults, Obama will be partying extra hard.
Now we know why Hussein wanted the deadline. It’s all about HIM.
Heck, if he could use his own mother’s death AND LIE ABOUT IT to sell Obamacare, he’s capable of much worse.
You only turn 50 once, hopefully your term as POTUS will only be once too. Then maybe we can get some answers.
If there's no agreement, will he skip the party and go back to work for the American people?
$35,000 per couple. Oh, yes, the Democrat Party, the party of the common man. I know my wife and I often spend $35,000 to attend a party/fund raiser. Who doesn’t?
It sounds liea planned victory celebration to me. He plans to celebrate the Republicans cave with a huge party that rakes in buckets of cash at the same time. For a Democrat it’s the perfect evening!
He acts like a nouveau riche arab oil sheik. hmmmm
I thought that all good muslims were supposed to fast during Ramadan.
Oh Really?? It'll be Ramadan, and there will be no denying the Marxis Muzzie his par-TAY!
That’s only during daylight hours. Someone pretending to not be a Muslim (for the purpose of deception in order to further the cause of Islam) don’t have to fast at all.
Muslims have altered definitions of a lot of these things. I knew a bunch of Iranians who decided to go on a “hunger strike” in protest of the Shah back in the ‘70’s, and they only struck during the day, and only for the three days before US Thanksgiving. Dumbest thing I ever saw.
It’s not a birthday party, it’s a feast at the beginning of Ramadan.
Omoslem celebrated Ramadan 2010 by taking the entire monthlong “holiday” off.
That boy is a self-absorbed piece of excrement.
That’s more than the vast majority of people even make all year in my town! (I think the median is 26 or 28K).
Won’t he be observing Ramadan during that time?
Not when you’ve got folks lined up to pay you 35 grand to attend your party.
Well, I guess that beats spending your 50th birthday with all of your friends, which I guess is Valerie Jarrett.
This is in Chicago.
They wrote the book on how to do this stuff.
When asked about Grandma eating catfood because her Social Security check did not come in, Obamma said “Let them eat Cake!” /s
TheWon always turns his bday into a campaign fundraiser. Last year the turnout sucked. This year you couldn’t pay people to go.
Will there the phoney Greek columns = Will the phoney Greek columns
But not so rich as to be able to afford an Ava-Hummer, they took my $$ away for “the poor”! (Don’t get me started on “the poor” here...)
My ten year old got invited to a friends birthday party the other day but we couldn’t afford the $5000 to send her.
When does the big vacay in Martha’s Vineyard start?
Yes, I knew the Aug. 1 deadline had to do with his vacation but hadn’t thought about the “birthday.” I would imagine that McC is ready to get back to Louisville as much as Obama wants his birthday. I’m afraid the American people will cave.
We can see that despised "fat cats" will not be present for this O'Bubba birthday bash.
Let us not forget, Ohaha announced he was "the first billion dollar presidential candidate." Now, he doesn't actually have to raise that amount---he's got zillions stashed away offshore. He merely had to wire-transfer some of it, incrementally.
Ohaha figured by now, the campaign dollars would be rolling in like they did in 2008---and all he had to do was get names to list on the FEC reports.
That ain't happening---so its onward to Plan B---what to do if the campaign money is NOT flowing in.
REFERENCE Obama "The Fund-Raiser" is a guy who really plans ahead.
Obama stashed away zillions for his campaign (looted from the US Treasury). All he needs is "contributor names and CV" to cover the FEC requirements.
Remember that when Ohaha got in, his first moves were:
(1) taking over the census and placing it under the jurisdiction of the WH (has all the names and CV he needs for the FEC),
(2) taking control of the US Treasury, and,
(3) COS Rahm's brother taking charge of Medicare/Aid billions and O/Care billions.
Now we know why.
Yeah, we know why....
Hitler had a great 50th bash also. Must be a dictator thing.
I think for these thugs, actually making it alive to age fifty is an amazing thing. So considering the circumstances I would have to say that he has every reason to celebrate lavishly. I wonder if he’s worried about no longer making it out of the country wiht his head intact or minus tar and feathers. See if it doesn’t happen when he ends up getting voted out and then ends up having to bail to avoid criminal charges or an enraged citizenry.
You think you are Mad Now,wait Until next week when the Republicans present Obama with a Nice Big Birthday Present,Folding on the Debt Ceiling Increase. They wouldnt want to interupt his Birthday Party
I think there should be shared sacrifice: 0 should cancel his party and take Michelle out to a nice restaurant sans hangers on. He’s such a shining example of concern and responsibility.
I hope not. Everything the boy-king touches turns into a turd.
The only thing he ever showed a talent for is mobilizing the zombie hordes to vote. And even that's questionable since we have a press that puts lipstick on any pig, as long as it's a limp-wristed socialist democrat.
I don't think she is his friend, more like his handler...which might explain why the First Wookie seems perennially pee ohed.
But...but...Paul Ryan drank a $300 bottle of wine! < /sarc>
Nero had nothing on Obama. Except for the fact that at least Nero could play a musical instrument.
