GOP Hammers Obama With ... Birthday Cards
A screen grab of one of the cards.   (

Tomorrow is President Obama's 51st birthday, and Republicans have designed e-cards in his honor—though they don't exactly wish him the most joyous of days. Instead, the RNC is once again offering a raft of politically-themed birthday wishes ("send your free Barack Birthday Card to friends & family!" it urges) highlighting everything it can't stand or loves to mock about the president, ABC News reports.

One card, for instance, features a cake with a note: "You Didn't Bake That." Another says, "I Couldn't Afford To Get You A Gift, So Here Is The Shirt Off My Back—Unemployed." A card bearing a photo of Anna Wintour reads, "The 1% Of Americans Who Read My Magazine Wish You a Happy Birthday." Joe Biden, Harry Reid, and George Clooney are also featured in the campaign; view all the e-cards here. (More Republican National Committee stories.)
