I figured that a little late was appropriate as you he never release anything on schedule. How are the Budget Numbers looking anyways? Maybe if you report them using the metric system you can make them look smaller.
It is good to see that the stress' of office allow for some down time. Things like "date night" and flying low over New York for a better view are good for a family and build strong bonds. Things like the Economy, Health Care, Budget, North Korea, Afghanistan, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, the Auto Industry, and Jobs can all wait a day.
Last year you were out campaigning on your birthday. Your birthday kicked off "Energy Week" where you promised the creation of five million new green jobs. I suppose that is a little behind schedule also. You have the funding from devoting nearly $60 billion of the stimulus package to create a new green-based economy, so what's the hold up? Apparently according to the "Green Czar" no one can yet agree on what a green job actually is, or what the definition of "is" is.
All of that aside, we can take this time to put our differences away. We can take this time to reflect on your birth which gave us you as our President. Be it in Hawaii or where ever else it may have taken place. A White House Birthday is a special event and even though you were not the first President to have a birthday in the White House, you were the first President to have Congress declare where you were born.
I am glad that you got something nice for yourself for your Birthday. Bowling a 144 is a lot better than bowling 37, or something like that, back in the Pennsylvania Democratic primary. I suppose that already had an Ipod and the top 25 out of the 2007 list of AFI's top 100 greatest movies of all time on Region 1 DVD.
So Mr. President when you closed your eyes and blew out the candles, what did you wish for? World Peace, Obamacare to pass the Senate this year, Biden to shut up, Republicans to go away, Fox News to stop reporting on your gaffs? Maybe you just took a moment to be thankful that you never ate any of Michelle's vegetables from the garden.
Here's wishing you a Happy Birthday and many more (just not many more of them in the White House).
From the soon to be former State of Texas
