President Obama celebrated his 51st birthday today with a round of golf and plans for a quiet weekend at Camp David. He'll mark the occasion in true political fashion on Aug. 12 with a party/fundraiser, notes the New York Times. The Republican National Committee, meanwhile, is celebrating with mock cards of the "You didn't bake that" variety, notes the Huffington Post. (More Barack Obama stories.)
