There’s been lots of buzz about Presidential birthday activities (of course, everyone wants a piece of Obama cake action). Last year, then Democratic candidate Obama served the press corps cake aboard his campaign plane.
So what’s in store for the leader of the free world? All we know is that he’s having a working lunch with all 58 Democratic and the two independents who typically vote his way at the White House (only because Chuck E. Cheese was booked). I take it Beyonce will not be serenading POTUS JFK style?
Robert Gibbs, White House spokesman, also revealed that Obama celebrated his birthday over the weekend at Camp David with a few friends (from Illinois and Hawaii) and family. He played a little basketball and bowled the game of life. He threw three strikes and a 9 on his last four tries, scoring a 144, reported Gibbs.
POTUS surprised the Press Corps on his birthday — by bringing cupcakes and singing happy birthday to the dean of the White House Press Corps — Helen Thomas (who turned 89 and happens to share her birthday with Obama).
