OT

I just watched PBS' presentation of the George Gershwin Music award to Sir Paul McCartney at the WH -- President Obama presented the award. The whole Obama family was there.

Sir Paul sang "Michelle, My Belle" toward the end (as Barack lip-synced to Michelle...)

It's fun to watch the President with his family .. they look happy and lovely and content..

Reading some of the tr0// comments on an article like this reminds me of back in the '50s when we lived in the country and had a party line on our phone. Somebody would be having a normal conversation and a neighbor's kid would get on the line and start braying like a jacka$$ thinking they were cute and funny. Bless their hearts.

Our phone number was 022J3 and the phone rang 3 times if it was for us.

Sorry for going so far off topic.

I signed the card and I am a big fan of the First family. I was however, a little taken aback when after signing it, I was immediately directed to donate money. I do hope the President has great birthday!

I signed the card and wished the President of the United States a happy birthday. He is working hard at solving the diffiuclt problems of our economy. I just wished the GOP would cooperate. We are all Americans and should be helping him rebuild our country as one.

So true, but you know they won't help him when all they want is for him to be gone from office.

Obama agreed to become captain of the Titanic after it hit the iceberg - Van Jones

I sent the card but forgot to thank him for his willingness to take on this tremendous challenge.

I didn't know Van Jones said that, but that is my new favorite quote.

I wrote the White House and asked if he could take 30 seconds out of his busy schedule.......That would just be beyond cool.....here's hoping.

The President took on alot of things most people would have walked away from in a heartbeat. That is why it is even more disgraceful he gets no help from some members of Congress.......when things are falling apart in our respective homes....every member of the family usually pitches in, as WE weather the storm..........some family values, huh?

I do whatever Michelle wants. She's the leader of my free world!

Now that made me smile!

The media will have you to believe that the country has turned against this president.

Look at the welcome he got today in New Jersey.
