WASHINGTON--President Obama is having an extended birthday weekend with the boys while First Lady Michelle and daughter Sasha are having a girls vacation in Spain.

Obama played golf at Andrews Air Force Base on Saturday with longtime buddies and on Sunday will continue celebration of his 49th Aug. 4 birthday with a barbeque at the White House.

Obama turned 49 on Wednesday, with Mrs. Obama in Spain and daughter Malia, 12, at overnight camp.

Obama had a birthday dinner that night in Chicago at the graham elliot restaurant with Nesbitt, Whitaker, Senior Advisor and pal Valerie Jarrett, Oprah Winfrey and her friend Gayle King.

Obamafoodorama reports that the East Wing confirmed that Mrs. Obama is expected back from Spain in time to make the belated birthday celebration. On Sunday, Mrs. Obama and Sasha lunched with Spain's King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia at their Majorca summer palace before heading back to the U.S.

“President Obama is having an extended birthday weekend with the boys”

Michelle is out of town so gets to take his “boys” out of the lock box and pretend he’s a real guy for a few days. LOL

Obama played golf at Andrews Air Force Base . Wonder if any of our first responding fighters were told to stand down while the annointed on played on the runway.

This is what Obama sings to himself:

I love me, I love me

I’m wild about myself

I love me, I love me

That’s my picture on the shelf

When I’ve got a date at a quarter to eight

If I don’t show; I ain’t late

I love me, I love me

I’m wild about myself.

Wahid Hamid a wealthy Pakistani friend of Obama when he was a freshmam. Hamid and Obama traveled to Karachi, Pakistan after graduation from Occidental and stayed with the family of Mohammed Hasan Chandoo. Hamid is now a vice president at Pepsico in New York City.

Is that the trip to Pakistan that we don’t have an American passport for?

Mine was the day before Barry's.

I went to dinner with some friends that evening. I enjoyed myself and that was really all I wanted.

But then again, I'm just one of the little people, like all of us. ;-)

You forgot this is a particularly special birthday—his 49th. Didn’t you and your family give your Dad extra special treatment on his 49th birthday?

Thank you! :)

We didn't have a sandstorm that day, but we did today.

I hate sandstorms.

Have I ever said that before?

While Obama and the bro's are doing blow this weekend, Mrs. Obama and daughter are eating REAL Spanish food. Pailla made with saffron rice, lobster tail, fresh salad, hot rolls with butter and honey on them and a pitcher or two of cold Sangria with cut fruit floating around in the pitcher of wine.

I'll go for the real Spanish food and the blue water beach instead of the blow. But not during August. That's Europe's vacation month and the beaches and hotels are packed. It's a zoo if your intention is to have a quiet time.

He’s obviously not concerned about perpetuating any stereotypes.

Who could have predicted that the first black President would raid the treasury, scream racist at his political enemies, turn the White House into a basketball court and nightclub, throw wild parties for no apparent reason, and go on vacation every other week?

Maybe there is a logical use of Muslim women headgear: sandstorms.

He’s lazy and ridiculous. No Democrat wants to be seen with him and the Congo Black Caucus is mad at him. So he ducks out without doing any work. No class and his skin color doesn’t matter. The White scumbags he hangs around with are just like him.

I celebrated my 49th last year.

My wife had to work late. My daughters were working, and couldn’t get the night off. I had to photograph two games, one at 3pm and the other a 7 pm—two hours from home.

I got home and found a cupcake with a candle in it at 1 AM.

Its not that my family doesn’t love me, its just that we are all grown up and we understand what it means to be an adult—sometimes we have to do things we would prefer not to, in order to get the things we need.

Just don’t forget your wife’s birthday or you’re anniversary. That is a job a man can’t get out of.

I don’t think someone as childish and narcissistic as BHO could ever understand what you’re trying to say here. As someone else said, if this is what he does for his 49th, what can we expect for his 50th?
