Obama plans lavish 50th birthday bash for day after debt-limit deadline
The Ticket/Yahoo News ^ | July 15, 2011 | Rachel Rose Hartman

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," ...

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!

I thought that all good muslims were supposed to fast during Ramadan.

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.

I hope you're only referring to his white half. Because everyone knows its only allowable to refer to a white man as a "boy", not a black man.

Well, I guess that beats spending your 50th birthday with all of your friends, which I guess is Valerie Jarrett.

TheWon always turns his bday into a campaign fundraiser. Last year the turnout sucked. This year you couldn’t pay people to go.

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.

Ohaha? Put his plans on hold if there's no agreement? Me-First Ohaha could care less.

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.

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.

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.

“If there's no agreement, will he skip the party and go back to work for the American people?”

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.
