Sign his birthday card here..I just did. Feel free to mention that he's doing an amazing job..despite what anyone says, I really think he has done some amazing things, especially considering the shitstorm W left this country..and the fact that he's forced to battle a bunch of whiny, idiotic Repubbies on every issue. There aren't many people who could do this job and Barry O is doing just fine.
WASHINGTON—After months of heated negotiations and failed attempts to achieve any kind of consensus, President Obama turned 50 years old Thursday, drawing strong criticism from Republicans in Congress. "With the host of problems this country is currently facing, the fact that our president is devoting time to the human process of aging is an affront to Americans everywhere," said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who advocated a provision to keep Obama 49 at least through the fall of 2013. "To move forward unilaterally and simply begin the next year of his life without bipartisan support—is that any way to lead a country?" According to White House officials, Obama attempted to work with Republicans right up until the Aug. 4 deadline, but was ultimately left with no choice except to turn a year older.
