Figures. Obama Doesn’t Give His Own Kids Birthday Presents But He Wants Yours

In 2008 Barack Obama admitted that he and his wife do not give birthday presents to their two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
The Telegraph reported:

In a magazine interview Obama and his wife Michelle revealed that one of their steadfast house rules is not giving Christmas or birthday presents to Malia, 10, and Sasha, seven.

The couple explained that they spend “hundreds” on birthday slumber parties and want to “teach some limits”. Santa Claus is still permitted to deliver seasonal gifts however.

The girls are also given an allowance of just $1 (50p) a week for performing household chores, according to People magazine. Those chores include making their own bed, setting and clearing the dinner table and putting themselves to bed by 8.30pm.

But he wants yours…
Today the Obama Campaign asked supporters to forgo birthday and wedding presents and send the cash to the Obama campaign.
Via Weasel Zippers:

That takes some nerve. He says he doesn’t give his own kids presents but he wants yours!

    More evidence that the kids are not really theirs, they are just hired actors in the obama theater.

    Obama’s Desperate Fundraising Ploys

    [RUSH: It starts out this way: “For the first 10 years of our marriage, Barack and I lived in an apartment in my hometown of Chicago. The winters there can be pretty harsh, but no matter how snowy or icy it got, Barack would head out into the cold — shovel in hand…” Do they not get the irony here? She’s got Obama leaving the family abode with a shovel. Here’s a guy that promised shovel-ready jobs and then joked about them. He leaves the family abode, “shovel in hand — to dig my car out before I went to work. In all our years of marriage, he’s always looked out for me.

    “Now, I see that same commitment every day to you and to this country. The only way we’ll win this election is if we can rely on one another like that, all the way to November 6th. You should know that your recent donation means a lot to both of us. Barack is working hard, but he can’t do this alone — he needs your help. Will you make another donation today to build this campaign? When you do, you’ll be automatically entered to join Barack and me for a casual dinner.”


    He was not making it up. The Obama Event Registry. You can click on “register with Obama 2012.” You’re getting married or you have a birthday. You’re supposed to tell your guests to donate to Obama instead to you. It’s right here. Obama is asking people getting married to forego gifts for themselves and ask their guests to donate to him. It’s a guy calling other people greedy and selfish. Exactly right. Now Valerie Jarrett’s daughter got married not long ago. Did she forego gifts? Valerie Jarrett’s daughter. Did Obama ask Valerie Jarrett’s daughter to ask her wedding guests to send money to him? No way. You know it didn’t happen.


    RUSH: How long is it going to be before Obama starts asking people to remember his campaign in their wills? You can see it now, a website, (Obama impression) “If one of my death panels determines your life is to end, please remember my re-election campaign in your will.” It’s just as brazen as asking you to forget wedding gifts and give them to him.]

  • MrGoodWench

    Thank God Obambam is ” asking” for gifts for himself.
    He could have sent his black and/or muslim and union thugs to your homes to ” redistribute” your gifts .
    Then what you would have done ?

  • old glazier

    Another peek into the souless ONE. I asked my youngest grandson if I should send his birthday money to the President. He thought not, that Presidents get too much already. Heh. Smart kid.

  • democraps suck

    That is because mooslums do not believe in Christmas…hence no Xmas presents…that would go against his Koran teachings

    There are no words for this low-class joke of a “president” and his entourage.

    And BTW, don’t even think about donating that $3 to The None’s campaign in hopes of “winning” dinner with him . . . the dinner, transport and so forth is “valued” at $4000+ on which you must pay taxes just like any lottery winnings!

    Pretty expensive $3 donation if you ask me!

  • sandy

    The man is so selfish. He is even spending more than he has on his campaign but I guess to him we are like his daughters. He thinks our money is his and he can dole it out to whoever appeals to him. It will teach us humility.

    And that spending more than he has doesn’t even begin to account for the HUGE travel costs that are being billed to the American taxpayer so that he can attend his fundraisers. One little stop at some memorial and it becomes his “legitmate duty as potus”.

    democraps suck commented: Muslims don’t give Christmas presents.

    Damn! I didn’t think of that. They threw in not giving them Birthday presents so it wouldn’t stand out that they didn’t give Christmas presents.

    Most still want to think calling Obama a Muslim is some kind of conspiracy theory but this latest is only one of many things that point in that direction. The truth will out but not until this frickin liar is defeated in a landslide.

    Perhaps the Obama campaign will soon be doing a door to door fundraising drive in your town.

    The person at your door will be a Democrat and a Notary Public. They will provide you with a pre-printed Last Will and Testament leaving all your assets to Barack Obama and a Do Not Resucitate Order. Simply sign both forms and the smooth talking snake oil salesman Democrat Notary Public will take care of the rest. The nice lady accompanying the smooth talking snake oil salesman Democrat Notary Public will hand you a lovely hemlock juice cocktail which you should swallow in a single gulp immediately after signing both forms.

    where the heck is Child Protective Services? these kids should be placed in Foster Care until the Child court trial on what is gong on sets the decision. What a pair of ogres.
    And to think that MEE Ho is going to lead the Olympic team thru the London Oly open ceremony!

  • Alana

    Their Williams-Sonoma registry:

    Getting wedding gifts to set up your new house is part of the fun of getting married. Then, as the years go by, you have the fun of still having some of those items as mementos.

    He’s really scraping the bottom of the barrel with these solicitations. But it’s not surprising that a man who doesn’t give his children birthday and Christmas gifts would expect others to forego their wedding presents. (Except, of course, Laura Jarrett.)

  • Redwine

    Of course Emperor Narcissus doesn’t give birthday presents to the girls:
    1) They’re not his kids.
    2) He doesn’t even know their ages.
    3) He’s a cold, self-centered sociopath who only wants everything for himself.

    No wonder he wants everybody else’s stuff. You don’t merit presents. Emperor Narcissus owns everything.

  • Alana

    I was just thinking. Christmas and birthdays are an American tradition. So are weddings, wedding gifts, anniversaries. They are some of the celebrations around which American life revolves.

    So – Obama doesn’t really like Christmases. Or birthdays. These things aren’t in his heart, like they are in the rest of us.

    He doesn’t give presents to his girls on these occasions, probably because he doesn’t like these occasions. They are “American” and he wants to fundamentally change us.

    So what’s a little matter like wedding presents to him? It’s just another bit of American culture he wants to stamp out.

    I’m not saying other cultures don’t celebrate many of these same events. I am saying that Obama hates everything American.

  • Sasja

    Ella, don’t pop that cork just yet. He may lose the election but he’ll still have plenty of time to wreak even more havoc before he has to vacate. We’re going to celebrate when we see his skinny butt actually leave the WH for good.

    Some muslims do have birthday parties but presents are verboten.

  • ChicagoJenn

    well, if he’s re-elected, he’ll be taking everyone’s savings, IRAs, private pensions, and anything else he can get his hands on. this is just the beginning….

  • Rachelle

    Next Michelle will be doing dollar dances to raise money.

    Once this miserable couple is out of the White House I expect them to go bankrupt within a decade.

  • Sarah

    What #29 said. Indeed, Muslims do not celebrate birthdays. Likely Obama struggles to celebrate Christmas in some fashion just for show.

  • Militant Catholic

    It’s good to see how many people caught on to the fact that the Obamas, JUST LIKE THE MUSLIMS, don’t believe in giving their kids presents on birthdays or Christmas.

  • Militant Catholic

    Just for the sake of argument, let’s pretend the Obamas aren’t Muslim but don’t give their kids presents for their birthday or Christmas.


  • jorgen

    Enjoy the gifts you get this year. Shortly before November, Obama will declare rule under emergency powers and make an executive order stating that birthday and Christmas gifts offend the Muslims and therefore must be given to “Dear Leader”.

  • Just crass.

    I can’t imagine how anyone in their right mind (I guess the key here) would think something like this would go over well.

    Obama’s team are operating in an echo chamber. It is either they don’t get it, don’t care, or have something up their sleeves to pull in October.

  • Neo

    This must be for the Obama’s retirement home on the Malvinas.

    The Secret Service rounded up all the knives and forks from a luncheon Friday of NALEO before the President appeared.

    “It’s very important that you use your utensils as soon as possible,” National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials board member Raquel Regalado told about 1000 delegates at the group’s annual conference.

    I guess this means that they won’t need any silverware (except for spoons) .. a potato peeler sounds nice.

    Obama thinks he’s king. How dare the little peons enjoy weddings and birthday parties when they could be honoring me?

  • sandy

    Last week Obama issued an executive order which will allow Illegals the American Dream. This week he pleads executive priviledge on Fast and Furious. He has a barefoot dance party at the White House quickly followed up with an invitation to the Gay Pride Movement who gives the finger to Reagan’s picture. Was it only a month or so ago he was at war with The Catholic Church? Oh yeah, and a couple of weeks ago we found out that the White House was leaking Foreign Policy Secrets which endanger Israel. Its hard to keep track of everything Obama does to demean ordinary Americans and our culture. And maybe that’s the whole point. If Obama can hit us with enough crap — we will be numb and finally accept the reality of the situation we’re in.

    It will work on a lot of people, the new reality of the job situation, the American Dream dead and buried and soon fewer and fewer people will remember what life was like before Obama.
