President Obama just can’t seem to keep track of birthdays, especially his own.

After spending more than two years in office deflecting questions surrounding his birth, the commander in chief said on Friday that he’d be turning 50 in a week.

“You know, I’m going to be turning 50 in a week, so I’m starting to think a little bit more about Medicare eligibility,” Obama said at a news conference concerning the U.S. debt.

But according to the document he claims to be his official Hawaiian birth certificate that he released April 27, his birthday is not until August 4, which is actually three weeks away from the time he said it, not one.

“I’m gonna get my AARP card soon,” Obama added. “And the discounts.”

The president’s apparent error got scant coverage from major media.

ABC News ran a brief, two paragraph mention of the flub, and asked if Obama was having a “senior moment.”

USA Today reported, “We figure President Obama must be excited about turning the big 5-0. He moved his birthday up a couple of weeks during today’s news conference.”

This is not the first time Obama has had birthday-related issues.

As WND reported last August, Obama’s age on his own official MySpace page has been fluctuating erratically, with him actually getting four years younger on his last birthday in 2010.

In 2009, the president’s authorized page on the social-networking site 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. 

Ironically today, Obama’s MySpace page has removed all references to Obama’s birthday.

Just recently, Obama had trouble with his daughter Malia’s birthday, as he stated she was 13 when she was actually 12.

Obama’s birthday trouble is sparking reaction among some WND readers.

“Obama’s not having a senior moment, he is just typical of all liars,” said J.C. Lundin of Bay Point, Calif. “He cannot remember his lies from one day to the next. It’s a shame that our elected representatives haven’t the nerve to throw this scoundrel out of the White House. They all know he is a fraud and that is within both parties. Personally, I have lost faith in our government and have, in writing, ended my voter registration. These people make me sick as they are all cowards and scumbags and deserve absolutely no support. God help our troops!”

Bill Beckman of Lake Mills, Wis., noted: “It’s probably the result of time warp from traveling through all 57 states.”
