Someone at Organizing for Action, Barack Obama’s attempt to convert his 2012 campaign into a perpetual political force, apparantly never read the children’s story, “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” before designing this revealing birthday card for the president.
In what is the group’s annual attempt to draw attention to Obama’s Aug. 4 birthday, Americans are being asked to send best wishes to the president, this year in the form of three different birthday cards. One of those three uses one of the more common derogatory labels put on Obama by his political opponents and could have been designed by Rush Limbaugh.
“Happy Birthday to the Organizer-in-Chief,” it reads.
As early as 2009, Limbaugh was disparaging Obama’s performance on America’s unemployment crisis, titling one of his show’s segments, “Community Organizer-in-Chief Calls Summit to Talk About Jobs.”
Only two Sundays ago, Sen. Lindsey Graham appearing on “Meet the Press,” blasted Obama’s handling of the shootdown of Malaysian Flight MH17 over Ukraine by Moscow-supported separatists, characterizing it as a “battle of wills between the KGB Colonel and the community organizer, and the colonel is winning.”
At least this year’s call for birthday wishes has finally settled on Obama’s official age and birth date.
As WND reported in 2010, the president’s authorized page on the social-networking site MySpace indicated he was a whopping 52 years old, when it should have read 48, if he were indeed born on Aug. 4, 1961, as the White House maintains.
Lest that snafu be attributed to some underling simply posting the wrong information to MySpace, the president himself seemed confused three years ago when speaking of his upcoming 50th birthday, missing the claimed date by two weeks.
This year’s email sent from Organizing for Action reads:
Heads up: On Monday, President Obama turns 53 – and for his birthday this year, we’d like to try something a little different.
We’re putting together a birthday card for the President from grassroots supporters, and we’re letting you pick your favorite message and design.
Pick out your favorite card, then sign your name to wish President Obama a happy birthday – you can even add a personal note.
President Obama gets a lot of well wishes for his birthday – we wanted to make sure folks like you got to give it a more personal touch this year.
It’s not often we get a chance to step back and just say thanks to the President for inspiring a movement of millions to fight for change. That’s what this is all about.

While Obama’s experience as a community organizer before becoming president has been a source of ridicule by conservatives, Dinesh D’Souza, in his latest film, “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” treats it as both a serious and revealing aspect of Obama’s life due to the future president’s connections to the political methodology of Chicago radical Saul Alinsky.
D’Souza portrays Alinsky as the mastermind of a decades-long plan to polarize, radicalize and dominate American politics, with the eventual goal of destroying the nation and founding a socialist utopia in its place. By fomenting public discontent, moral confusion and chaos to spark social upheaval, Alinsky’s disciples hope to amass power to make their desired redesign of society inevitable.
The growing chaos being brought about by Obama’s border policies, the takeover of America’s health-care system and the crumbling of U.S. power in the world as the nations’ enemies advance could be seen as confirming Obama as either a bumbling, incompetent organizer-in-chief – as his opponents charge – or as a wildly successful organizer-in-chief in the Alinsky mold.
