Happy Birthday, Mr. President!
President Barack Obama is celebrating his 49th birthday today, not with some grand party at the White House surrounded by his wife and children, but instead raising money for Democrats.
At least we know even the President doesn’t get the day off work for his birthday. See what the Pres. has on his birthday schedule in the next couple of days.
Marking his 49th birthday today, President Obama flew out early to his Hyde Park home in Chicago to prepare to make his rounds at three different fundraisers on Thursday.
Thursday night he’ll be attending a birthday dinner at billionaire real estate mogul Neil Bluhm’s house, where guests have to shell out $30, 400 just to get a glimpse of Obama eating a slice of cake. But the money isn’t going to waste, the party is a major fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee.
Since serving the past 18 months in office, the President has become noticeably older with more signs of graying hair becoming apparent, no doubt coming from all the stress of running a country.
Take a glimpse of President Barack Obama through the past couple of years to see his more distinguished look since holding office. Happy birthday, Mr. President!
