Happy Birthday, President Obama

President Obama is one of the youngest and most vibrant Presidents the United States has ever had. He turns 51 today.

I’m on the “Obama for America” email list. I got an email today asking to sign his B-Day card:


From: Michelle Obama <info@barackobama.com>
To: Azleader<azleader@yahoo.com>
Sent: Saturday, August 4, 2012 9:26 AM
Subject: Barack’s birthday card


Today is Barack’s 51st birthday, and the girls and I are pulling together his birthday card.

Last call for names: Want to sign it?

Clicking on the link below will add your name to Barack’s card automatically:


This election’s only going to get tougher, so I know it would mean a lot to Barack to know he has your support on his birthday.




One of the things I greatly admire about Barack Obama is that he is a devoted family man.

For many philosophical and economic reasons, I’m not a supporter for the reelection of the President.

So, despite figuring this email was only a cheap political ploy to brag about all the millions of Americans who banded together to say “Happy Birthday” to the President… as a show of respect and to show support for family values I decided to sign it anyway.

When I clicked the link, this is what I got:

I entered $0 in the “Other amount” box, but that was not accepted.

Now… maybe I got added to the list, maybe not… but as an American I considered it the ultimate insult to be asked to pay a minimum of $15 to say “Happy Birthday” to the President of the United States.
