I guess the tax cheat at the Treasury forgot to check his boss’s schedule when he came up with his arbitrary debt-limit deadline:
President Obama returns to Chicago on Aug. 3 to mark his 50th birthday with fund-raisers at the Aragon Ballroom, with tickets ranging from $50 a person to $35,800 per couple, which includes VIP seating at a “Birthday Concert” where celebs will be performing and a dinner with the president.
The fundraiser at the Aragon, the historic ballroom in Uptown, will be one of the biggest third quarter events, expected to draw in national supporters. Obama’s 50th birthday is Aug. 4….
That won’t look good if a meltdown over debt has occurred, and the president is really putting the lie to the decades-old notion about a “Social Security Trust Fund” by not sending out checks. But this administration has never been noted for its political astuteness, except in the minds of its sycophants in the press.
