President Barack Obama's 51st birthday is approaching, and the Republican National Committee is seizing the day to rally support with mocking cards.

The cards are featured on the RNC-created site and feature images of notable Obama supporters like actor George Clooney, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Each satirical card has a birthday wish that targets the president on issues like Solyndra, the unemployment rate and the national debt.

This isn't the first time the RNC has mocked Obama on his birthday. In the past, the RNC's mock cards have featured Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D), Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

During a Thursday campaign stop in Florida, a crowd of supporters sang "Happy Birthday" to Obama. The president said his birthday wish was to obtain Florida's 29 electoral votes.

"If I had known you guys were going to sing we would have had a cake. And then I would have blown out the candles, I would have made a wish, that probably would have to do with electoral votes," Obama said. "Winning Florida wouldn't be a bad birthday present."
