Call Al Sharpton!Â Where the heck is Jesse Jackson?Â US House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has done something that could be considered worse than uttering the dreaded N-word!
This year, five days before President Obamaâ€™s birthday on August 4th, that ditzy old woman from San Francisco came up with the idea to surprise President Obama with a birthday cake during his caucus meeting with Congressional Democrats.
In honor of our nationâ€™s first African-American president, Pelosi chose a dark chocolate birthday cake, topped it with the presidential seal and decorated the confectionary wonder with the words â€œHappy Birthday, Mr. Presidentâ€
By choosing a dark chocolate cake, either Mrs. Pelosi was purposely sending a racially insensitive message to the president, attempting to be witty, or, without thinking about the impact icing color could have on the tenor of the racial debate, was just using the presidentâ€™s 52nd birthday to satisfy her notorious chocolate addiction.
In the end, icing and racial innuendo aside, the Congressional Democrats should at least be thankful that Nancy Pelosi a.) didnâ€™t have Paula Deen bake the cake and b.) didnâ€™t decide to make Obamaâ€™s birthday party extra special by popping out of the cake.

After struggling with noncompliant Republicans over the debt-ceiling debate, in what appears to be an effort to soothe his “agitated” self, President Obama has scheduled a high-priced 50thÂ birthday bash in honor of the day he graced the planet with his greatness. Â The news comes just days after Obama wasÂ lamentingÂ the burden of having to keep “hundreds of thousands of [unnecessary] dollars in additional income.”Â The President encouraged people to take the extraÂ moneyÂ that would otherwise provide stuffing for the worn-out mattresses Americans haven’t been able to replace in a recession and look for an opportunity to help a brother or sister in need.
Barack’sÂ Birthday BonanzaÂ has been scheduled for August 4thÂ — the day after the United States of America is due to officially downshift from the black into the red. The festivities should be a pleasant albeit bizarre distraction from the weeping and gnashing of teeth taking place outside the walls of the concert hall, if the nation actually defaults.
Either way, the elaborate Chicago event will serve as anÂ all-in-oneÂ Obama 2012 campaign fundraiser, concert, and birthday celebration.Â The affair comes complete with celebrities, crooning, swooning, and singing praises to the man who just needs more time to usher in the Hope and Change he’s yet to deliver thanks to obstacles like former president G. W. Bush,Â the intractableÂ Eric Cantor (R-VA), and the perpetually pesky Fox News.
Still, Obama exhorting self-sacrifice one day and then charging to attend a function in his honor the next is where this party thing gets a little dicey.
The entry fee to get into the Aragon Ballroom for Barry’s big day willÂ costÂ well-heeled couples a large pile of the type of “additional income” Obama just the other day suggested they should give to the needy. Without having to win the “Dinner with Barack and Biden”Â raffle, donors willing to part with $35,800 get to enjoy a private dinner with the President and VIP seating at a birthday concert rumored to be featuring native Chicagoans.
Spending thousands of dollars worth of “additional income” to see Obama blow out 50 birthday candles isn’t exactly the type of altruistic endeavor the President promoted when he mentioned parents struggling to pay college tuition.Â Nevertheless, at least the President is doing a good deed by helping ease the burden he suffers daily of having to keep “additional income” that could be put to better use.
Heaven knows most people can always manage with a little less, and even if they can’t, the President is convinced that most Americans, regardless of their situation, have more than they actually need. In fact, the real reason behind the President hosting a function where he’ll stuff disposable cash into his campaign coffers, contributed by anyone willing to cough it up, is to reaffirm his commitment to training the nation to make do with less.
President Obama is even making sure, regardless of economic strata, that “shared sacrifice” is truly shared.Â At the birthday show, there’ll even be a limited-availability $50 “neediest among us” section for those who view the cost of admittance as anÂ investmentÂ in an Obama second term, where he’ll have another chance to fulfill his promise toÂ provide freeÂ gas and monthly mortgage payments to those still having trouble making ends meet.
General admission will be more costly for the wealthier devotee who would rather splurge on a $200 glimpse of Barack Obama across a crowded ballroom than contribute “additional income” to a family in need of groceries.Â For those who don’t consider a party a real party without access to adultÂ beverages, the evening will cost $1000 worth of “additional income” to clink glasses with likeminded people in between rounds of party games, which could include Pin the Tail on the Donkeycrat.
Finally, one semester’s worth of tuition monies that could assist a struggling family with college-age children will purchase birthday celebrants a photo with the guest of honor.Â Funny, wasn’t it just yesterday that Obama hammered away at top earners and corporate jet owners who, ironically, are the only ones with the money to plunk down $10,000 for a $5.99 prom-photo-quality souvenir featuring a smiling President with pockets full of evil rich people’s “additional income?”
As Barack Obama tries to decide whether or not to haveÂ Jennifer HudsonÂ sing what is fast becoming the perfect Obama Victory Fund 2012 theme song – “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” the President’s insolvency/$35K per couple birthday party will provide the perfect milieu to juxtapose against the monetary mayhem wreaking havoc across the nation.
However, there remains one glaring contradiction surrounding the expensive social event, which is that the festivities are being financed with donations gathered from the very people Barack Obama has just criticized for hoarding the “additional income” they need to afford entry into a high-priced shindig like the one he decided to throw for himself.
In the end, the Barack Bankruptcy/Birthday Bash, which will likely feature a 10-tiered “Yes We Can” birthday cake, turns out to be another opportunity for the President to illustrate to the American public he’s dead serious about his refusal to bow to spending cuts, and he’s willing to pull out all the stops to prove it.Â In addition, Barack can use the event to clarify his recent comments concerning Americans giving money they don’t need to the needy and explain that the only time charitable “shared sacrifice” gets a pass is if those with extra funds decide to shower those extras on him.
Nature then followed Obama indoors. On more than one occasion, Barack has been visited by Musca domestica.Â In fact, as Obama delivered remarks on the Affordable Care Act and the new Patients Bill of Rights in the East Room of the White House, an audacious fly comfortably landed and hung out for a while on the President’s upper lip.Â The oversized housefly was merely expressing an opinion on the bill.Â Oddly, Barry appeared at ease being lit upon by what would normally be swatted away.
Now, in anticipation of the President’s birthday, the sun’s surface is communicating from 93 million miles away by blasting “tons of plasma into interplanetary space — directly towards the Earth,”Â in an event being coined a “solar tsunami.”
Scientists are predicting that a “wall of ionized atoms should hit the planet tonight creating a geomagnetic storm and a spectacular light show and possibly threatening satellites in orbit.”Â Leon Golub of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics predicts that the “eruption …directed right at us is expected to get here early in the day on August 4th.”
Either the universe is restless, or Mother Nature is transmitting a birthday message to a president convinced his planetary presence ushered in “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow.”
According to Golub, this is the “first major Earth-directed eruption in quite some time.”Â A point of reference worth noting is that the last solar maximum on record occurred in 2001 just when Bill Clinton was almost done tooling around the Oval Office.
What does a coronal mass ejection have to do with Obama, you ask?Â Neon signs are environmentally friendly, which makes solar neon facsimiles the perfect addition to a high profile birthday party honoring President Barack Obama.
“The sun’s activity usually ebbs and flows on a fairly predictable” 11-year cycle. Coincidentally, this particular solar maximum has broken with tradition.Â The premature manifestation inadvertently coincides with a glorious and momentous occasion.
On the soon-to-be official national holiday of August 4th Barack Obama turns one year shy of half a century.Â This year even the G2V star will be involved in the festivities.Â Marking the day will be astral green and red aurorae bearing witness in the heavens to the birth of a green president with extremely red ideas, whose philosophy appears to rouse Mother Nature here on earth as well as in the cosmos.
