August 2 is the date the US risks defaulting on its good faith and credit. August 4 is President Obama’s landmark 50th birthday.How heartless can those Republicans be? Depriving Poor Barack from using his birthday to rake in campaign funds. So cruel.
And August 3 is on hold.
It is the night that the Obama 2012 campaign has planned a splashy fundraising celebration in the President’s hometown Chicago. The ballroom in the famous Allerton Hotel overlooking the city’s Michigan Avenue “Magnificent Mile” is booked for a concert and party.
But senior White House officials tell ABC News the party would go forward only if the deficit negotiations and deadline to raise the debt limit ceiling have been resolved.Goodness knows we can have the crisis extend beyond that. That could soon bring us to the unthinkable: Obama having to delay his Martha's Vineyard vacation.
