TIP: Moonbattery Obama Plans Extravagant Birthday Bash for Day After Government Supposedly Goes Broke According to the doomy rhetoric from the governmedia, America will go broke and collapse on August 2 because Republicans don't want to raise both taxes and the debt even higher. Not Obama though he will be living large: [Obama] is planning an extravagant fundraising bash Aug. 3 at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, including a birthday concert teeming with celebrities and for couples contributing $35,800 a private dinner with the president. All this just one day after the government is scheduled to run out of cash! Undoubtably, the sight of so much money getting thrown around and dissolute stars crooning to Obama will make a stirring contrast with a federal government bankruptcy featuring unpaid government workers, seniors and soldiers wondering how they'll afford the groceries, shuttered national parks, and angry investors trying to cash out their Treasury Bills. If the government defaults, you can be sure the birthday bacchanal will do much more to harm Obama's reelection prospects than help them.
