Obamaâ€™s birthday cake was absent from his 49th birthday celebration, raising the question as to what good a birthday is with no cake. Itâ€™s not that the cake was forgotten, itâ€™s that the Secret Service blocked it for â€œSecurity Reasons.â€
Unions were supposed to give the Commander in chief a celebration, complete with a delicious treat.Â Obama expressed his disappointment, and joked that the Secret Service was likely eating it at that very minute.
Sad.Â A birthday without a cake is likeâ€¦a car without gas, it just doesnâ€™t run.Â However, when it comes to safety, I guess you canâ€™t ever be too secure â€“ especially when the President of the United States is at risk.
Not only did Barack not have a cake, he didnâ€™t have a family, either.Â Sasha and Michelle are in Spain and Mailia is at sleepaway camp.Â Everyone did call him, though and as the Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced, those phone calls were the highlight of his big day.
