Note to Michelle Obama: It’s ‘Washington’s Birthday’
cnn.com ^ | 2/20/12 | CNN White House Producer Alexander Mooney

Posted on 02/20/2012 5:45:11 PM PST by ColdOne

(CNN) - Count the first lady among those who may not know the official name of today’s holiday.

Michelle Obama wished her famous husband a “Happy President’s Day” on twitter earlier Monday, declaring @BarackObama her “personal favorite.” The tweet was signed “-MO,” which the Obama campaign has said means it comes from the first lady directly.

The only problem? There is no such thing as Presidents Day. The official name of the holiday is “Washington’s Birthday,” according to the Office of Personnel Management, the agency in charge of federal employees.

Why does anybody think she skedaddled to Aspen Colorado, seemingly as soon as her plane touched the runway from her last vacation, 16 days ago?

I’m sure Obama would do it too, if he could.

She’s hanging out with the one percenters again. Those folks with 3 million dollar vacation homes.

I’m sure there were hundreds of Occupy protesters there, right?

The ex was a day late and a dollar short...

After 16 taxpayer paid trips for an entourage fit for a despotic queen, I wonder if she is proud of country?

Never mind.

These people are anathema to American traditions. We cannot make another mistake like the Obamas and expect our republic to survive.

As I remember, President’s Day was conjured up to merge commemoration of the b’days of Lincoln (2/12) and Washington 2/22), partly to avoid undue proliferation of nat’l holidays after M. L. King, Jr.’s birthdate was made a national holiday.

AMEN!

Only wish that he could have better countered the bimbo eruptions smearing him.

Hopefully there might possibly be a VP spot for him.
Great motivational speaker, and a smart guy.

What ever shall we do once the Most Reverend King and Benefactor of the World, Barack Hussain Obama, is deposed from his throne? Do we honor his Hawaian/Kenyan Birthday; his day of Immaculation; his Day of Dethronement; or his day of death??

Maybe his day of death. We will all need a day off to piss on his grave!

Lincoln's birthday was never a national holiday. Some states celebrated it as a state holiday, but others did not. Nixon called it "Presidents' Day," probably meaning Washington and Lincoln. The media has turned that into a celebration of all the Presidents (except for Jefferson Davis).

Since Obama thinks that all the sufferings of black Americans from 1619 to 2008 were to prepare the way for him to become President, it's no surprise if his wife thinks the purpose of the holiday is to celebrate her husband.

Presidents Day is an Obama holiday.

It is celebrated by Obama sticking his head outside of the White House. If he sees his shadow that means one more year of unemployment.
