BIRTHDAY PARTY ANNOUNCED FOR AUGUST 4 APPARENTLY NEVER HAPPENED
by Sharon Rondeau
(Aug. 13, 2012) — Prior to Obama’s claimed birthday on August 4, his campaign had announced a contest which anyone could enter by donating $3.00, after which two winners would be chosen to “wish Barack a happy birthday” “face to face” at his Chicago home hosted by his wife, Michelle. “Dinner with Barack” was also offered as an enticement for people to enter the contest.
After the “deadline” passed, the Obama campaign continued to solicit donations. On August 4, Obama spent the day without his family at Camp David in Maryland, not in Chicago. There was no birthday party except at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Washington, DC.
At some point, it was announced, possibly by a backdated article, that Obama’s birthday party would not take place on August 4 but would instead occur as a group of fundraisers on August 12. The day before Obama’s alleged birthday, The New York Times stated that the August 12 fundraisers would be held “with a bunch of strangers,” adding that “charging money to enter contests is illegal.”
What happened to the “birthday party at their Chicago home?” Is anyone investigating what happened to the $3.00 “donations?”
Obama left for Chicago on Saturday for a series of fundraisers over the weekend. “No public schedule” was posted on the White House presidential schedule for both Saturday and Sunday, although Obama greeted supporters when he arrived in Chicago on Saturday. There was no mention of his birthday in the weekend schedule published by Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times.
There are also no close-up photos of either Michelle or Barack Obama as they pursued different campaign activities on Saturday. That evening, Sweet reported that “The pool got a distant view in the dark of POTUS walking down the back stairs to his SUV followed by his Secret Service detail.” Obama had first visited his campaign headquarters and was reported by campaign adviser David Axelrod to have “fired up the team.”
Do they look “fired up?”
Obama’s remarks made at a private fundraiser today focused on the economy, “Wall Street reform,” and the national debt as a “real problem.”
