He's been a no-show the past few days. Whitehouse.gov lists "no public appearances" for Friday or today.

And today's his birthday! Yet there's no news of any kind. He usually goes to Chicago to celebrate his birthdays, so I checked with the Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times - no stories of any kind.

So what's going on? Where is he?

My guess is that he is laying low so as not to distract the country from the current right wing melt down.

Do you live under a rock? Yesterday he gave a speech about jobs at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. "The people standing behind me should not have to pay more just so the wealthiest Americans can pay less. That's not just top-down economics, that's upside-down economics."

I already have a husband, thank you.

I just find it very curious that publicity-hound Obama has totally dropped out of sight on his BIRTHDAY! Even his staunch supporters in the lamestream media are ignoring today's significance. Although - of course - Team Obama is still shaking down anyone and everyone for campaign contributions.

If Obama made a speech yesterday, koko, then why does the "President's Schedule - August 3, 2012" say "No public schedule"?

Maybe he likes to be with his family & close friends on some days.

"Maybe he likes to be with his family and close friends on some days."

Are you kidding? He's always made a big deal of his birthday, with multiple parties in just Chicago. And now, with the Campaign in the last 100 days - and his campaign strapped for cash - he should be all over the media, milking his birthday for all it's worth!

So where is he?

Because the event wasn't open to the public. It was on the regular White House press schedule, though:

Any other questions?

"In a box"... "In a cat(atonic) state".

Some of you obviously know more than the rest of us.

So spill, please!

None of my business if he wants it that way.

Yeah, it's his birthday.

But using my polisci degree, I have to say that he's avoiding making a spectacle for his birthday in an election year.

PRESIDENT'S SCHEDULE
"No public schedule" - for ALL of next week! Nor next weekend - when he's supposed to be in Chicago for birthday bashes and fundraisers.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/press-briefings
LAST PRESS BRIEFING WAS ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE EN-ROUTE TO FLORIDA LAST THURSDAY

http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/speeches-and-remarks
LAST "SPEECHES AND REMARKS" WERE ALSO LAST THURSDAY

http://www.whitehouse.gov/schedule/vice-president/2012-08-06
VP SCHEDULE
Biden also has "No public schedule" for ALL of next week.

You know, as much as I dislike Obama, an attack on a sitting President is a horrifying assault on the entire country. And the public has a right to know. All this secrecy by the lamestream media is just giving Obama's Washington Mafia time to purge and shred files this weekend.

Someone with genuine concern for the entire country needs to step up and make an announcement. And I mean today.
