Okay maybe not honor but they did acknowledge it. Last night the RNC had a birthday cake delivered to its counterpart. RNC spokesman, Tim Miller, said:
Since President Obama’s birthday is tomorrow, we actually wish him a happy 50.99726 years with this ‘you didn’t bake that’ cake. We do know that hard working, smart entrepreneurs across the country join us in wishing the president a happy birthday and hoping that next year he has more time for baking so the country can get back to job creating.
The White House is really getting specific when it comes to the unemployment rate.
Rather than 8.3% — the rounded-up figure — Obama economic adviser Alan Krueger writes on the White House website that the real jobless rate is 8.254%.
“The household survey showed that the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3% in July (or, more precisely, the rate rose from 8.217% in June to 8.254% in July),” wrote Krueger, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.
