Happy Birthday, Mr. President.

 

"On his 49th birthday Wednesday, President Obama received a promised "gift" from his friends at the Republican National Committee, in the form of a new Web site.

 

Web surfers who sign onto the new page will be presented with more than a dozen cards to choose from, including ones featuring Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

 

"Congrats on your big day!" reads the e-card from the indicted former governor. "In honor of your birthday, I decided not to testify."

 

Rangel's card says: "For your birthday, I will go quietly," a reference to the congressman's efforts to fight ethics charges.

 

(Obama vs. the Congressional Black Caucus?)

 

But perhaps the best one is the card with Vice President Biden's face on it: "For your birthday, you won't hear a f@#&ing peep out of me."" - Michael Shear

David Plouffe sent me a thank you. B)

 

Insert my name here:

 

Today's the President's 49th birthday, and I just heard how many of you have signed his birthday card so far: 1,266,611 as of this morning.

 

It's already an amazing show of support. But before the card is delivered -- with all of your signatures -- I want to make sure as many folks as possible get the chance to sign it.

 

Will you forward the First Lady's email below to five friends and ask them to sign with you?

 

Thanks again,

 

David Plouffe

You're becoming every bit as bad as happy jack and gator. Your current lack of respect for your Commander in Chief would not have been tolerated by you just a few years ago....and for good reason.

 

In the words of so many who have come before you, "If you cannot show respect for the President go live somewhere else."

Happy Jack's not so happy. Dunno why.

Disrespect.. from me? Hardly. Believe me, you'd really know it if I was disrespecting "our" President. This is called humor and additionally in other posts, constructive criticism. Would appear it's not something you're terribly familiar with. A bit too much online porn and epoxy fumes there Gouv? C'mon, try to lighten up. It's way healthier.

Oh Look!

 

Dear Insert my name here:

 

I want to thank you for signing my birthday card.

 

Michelle told me that she was planning something a little different this year, and I was overwhelmed by the kind words I received from so many supporters like you.

 

This job has a way of offering humbling moments. And the support you have shown me, time and time again, has sustained me through any number of difficult days. It is more than any president deserves, and I could not be more grateful.

 

On my birthday, I spent some time considering what the year ahead will bring -- a new set of challenges and opportunities, some that we can foresee and some that we cannot.

 

If we continue to stand together, I know we will continue to move America forward and win these fights for change.

 

Thank you again for taking a moment to sign my card. As far as birthdays go, it is hard to imagine topping this one. But then again, Michelle always has a way of surprising me.

 

Sincerely,

 

Barack

hot off the presses as it were... hmmm nice uniting theme here. Perhaps "us vs. them" exists for the D too eh?

 

 

Friend --

 

$200 million.

 

That's what Republican-aligned special interests have pledged to spend on the 2010 election. Just to put that in context, that's nearly $40 million more than every interest group spent on the 2008 presidential election -- combined.

 

When our administration and this movement decided to take on the special interests, we knew we were making a choice. And the consequences are clear. These groups have fought us at every turn in our struggle for change, and now they're trying to drown out our voices -- and our accomplishments -- with their campaign cash this fall.

 

We're not going to sit back and let that happen. That's why Organizing for America is announcing the By the People Fund with the goal of getting 3 million citizen donations to fuel our grassroots campaign for the upcoming election.

 

Please donate $5 today and help us take back this election from the corporate interests.

 

With our By the People Fund, we're going to make a statement this fall -- strengthening our grassroots efforts on the ground, focusing on getting first-time voters from 2008 back to the polls this year, and holding the Republicans and their special-interest allies accountable.

 

We've all gone to the mat with these folks time and again -- ever since Barack and I took office. And, from the Recovery Act to historic health reform to Wall Street reform, you helped prove we could win those fights.

 

Now these groups have one goal in mind when it comes to November 2nd -- erasing the progress we've made together.

 

By spending an unprecedented amount of cash to support Republicans, they're doing their best to buy their way back into power. And, if they do, they've been clear that they will do everything they can to undo the historic achievements we've fought so hard to win.

 

It's no wonder that each and every Republican in the Senate last week voted to allow these special interests to have a greater say in our elections. Their vote will allow these groups to spend millions on campaign ads -- and not have to reveal who's actually behind them.

 

I've been in politics a long time. I'm used to seeing the good guys outspent by interest groups. But we've never been outnumbered -- and we've never been outhustled.

 

I'm asking you to make sure it stays that way. Will you chip in and help us grow our By the People Fund?

 

Please donate $5 or more today:

Thank you,

 

Vice President Joe Biden

communique for today...

 

 

Friend --

 

Right now, my job -- along with those of my colleagues -- could be in jeopardy.

 

I'm a public school teacher in Philadelphia. And, like most states across the country, Pennsylvania is facing some bad budget shortfalls.

 

Without federal help, a lot of teachers like me -- as well as other public servants like police officers and firefighters -- will lose their jobs. Maybe you know some of these people. Maybe it's you.

 

Democrats in Congress are trying to do the right thing, proposing emergency assistance for states to preserve more than 100,000 jobs like mine. They're racing back to the Capitol for an emergency session this week to pass this bill and save these jobs.

 

But Republicans are standing in the way. Minority Leader John Boehner is calling the bill a "payoff" to "special interests" and attacking every Democrat who is fighting for us.

 

But I'm not a special interest. I'm a teacher.

 

Can you join me in telling House Democrats that they have our support as they fight for our jobs?

 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi -- and the entire Democratic Caucus -- have decided to rush back to Washington to make sure that hundreds of thousands of workers like me will get to keep our jobs. In addition, the bill will actually create even more job growth by closing tax loopholes for companies that ship American jobs overseas.

 

But the Republicans are going to do everything they can to prevent this aid.

 

Please stand with me, in support of Democratic leaders who are standing up for folks like me:

Thank you,
