Palin's Day and Barry's Day

Palin's day...

Real Clear Politics: In the latest indication that her sights are still set on a presidential run, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has accepted an invitation to keynote a Tea Party rally in Waukee, Iowa, on Sept. 3, RealClearPolitics has learned.

The Labor Day weekend visit to the nation's first voting state comes after Palin indicated during an appearance on Fox News earlier this month that she would make her decision about whether to launch a campaign in August or September.
All signs now point to September as the month when Palin would throw her hat into the ring, as logistical concerns ranging from fundraising to getting her name on the ballot in various states would likely preclude further delay. [MORE]
"I’m very excited to join grassroots Iowans at the ‘Restoring America’ event over Labor Day Weekend…Gatherings like this of independent liberty-loving Americans from every walk of life exemplify our commitment to come together to seek solutions to the problems confronting our nation. As I’ve said many times, including at Pella during my last visit to Iowa: We don’t need a ‘fundamental transformation’ of America. We need a restoration of all that is good and strong and free. The 2012 election will be a great debate between those two conflicting visions for our country."

Barry and Moochelle's day...

The debt-ceiling deadline is August 2, one day before the party. But everything should be a-okay as long as everyone remembers that it’s all about him.
(Examiner) — President Barack Obama is celebrating his 50th birthday in Chicago on Wednesday, August 3, 2011. The president’s birthday is technically on August 4, but the landmark bash is scheduled for the 3rd at the Aragon Ballroom in Uptown Chicacgo.
The event includes dinner with the president and a concert featuring Chicago native Jennifer Hudson, OK Go and Herbie Hancock. The doors open at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 3, 2011.
The birthday bash is also a fundraiser for Obama’s fund for his 2012 Presidential campaign. General admission seats are $200, but an upgraded VIP section is available for $1,000, on the Donate/Obama website.
The Aragon Ballroom, located at 1106 West Lawrence Avenue in Chicago, is a historic venue, built in 1926.
The birthday bash for Obama comes on the heels of the unresolved controversy about the national debt. Obama spoke in a rare prime-time address on July 25, 2011, in Washington D.C., urging passage on as increase of the national debt ceiling.

Why don't we send HIM a CAKE
