RNC Releases Snarky Birthday Cards For Obama’s 51st Birthday

By now, almost every American is well aware that the president’s 51st birthday is just around the corner, thanks in part to his constant, egotistical reminders. So to capitalize on this monumental occasion, the Republican National Committee has provided a way for average Americans to wish their Commander-in-Chief a “Happy Birthday” with snarky cards that remind the president of what a failure he is.

The RNC offers a sizeable selection of birthday cards and perhaps the most clever card features a birthday cake next to the words, “You Didn’t Bake That,” clearly making fun of Obama’s comment to business owners, “you didn’t build that.”

An RNC press release about the cards reads, “It has been a rough year for this president with his polls numbers sinking, seven months of terrible job reports, and worries about his reelection mounting, so a few cards from his friends should help cheer him up.”

Several of the cards picture the President himself, one of which features a photo of Obama and reads, “My Birthday Wish: Make Everyone Forget I’ve Been President The Last 4 Years.” Another shows Obama with the words, “I Hope Someone Gets Me Another Round Of Golf.”

One card even comes from taxpayers like you and me; it reads, “One Candle For Each Dollar You Added To The National Debt? 5,300,000,000,000 Candles –Taxpayers.” Another is tailored for those without jobs: “Mr. President, I Couldn’t Afford To Get You A Gift, So Here Is The Shirt Off My Back –Unemployed.”

The cards also mock Obama’s outrageous celebrity support. One pictures actor George Clooney and the words, “Happy Birthday, Party At My House Again?” and another shows editor-in-chief of American Vogue Anna Wintour saying, “The 1% Of Americans Who Read My Magazine Wish You A Happy Birthday.”

Another notable “Barack Birthday Card” includes a picture of Vice President Joe Biden saying, “Happy Birthday, I Promise Not To Say Any Four Letter Words Jobs…Oops!” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel also gets his chance to wish POTUS a happy 51st; his card reads, “Happy Birthday, Can’t Wait To See You In Chicago Next Year.”

The RNC encourages individuals to send their free Barack Birthday Cards to friends and family and the website also offers the option to donate to the RNC to help the Republican Party “defeat Barack Obama in 2012.”

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus’ final jab to the president in the release poked fun at his Hollywood friends and busy fundraising schedule, stating: “President Obama has had a rough year worrying about his reelection, having to spend all his time jetting around the country raising money with the likes of Anna Wintour and George Clooney and not meeting with his jobs council. So even though he didn’t build this website, we thought he’d enjoy the birthday wishes.”
