With his economic policy compared to a tar baby, and with fellow Democrats lashing out for the concessions he gave away to Republicans in their debt ceiling compromise, President Barack Obama turns 50 years old today.
We're guessing the man could use a vacation.
Instead, he has more work in front of him than ever before: fixing an economy, slashing the unemployment rate, running for re-election in 2012, convincing one party he isn't a Socialist and the other he isn't weaker than the chances of Ashley Hebert actually marrying J.P. Rosenbaum.
At the very least, Obama could use some birthday wishes right about now. Hang in there, Mr. President. At least you helped kill Osama Bin Laden. That guy sucked.
