Obama Plans Extravagant Birthday Bash for Day After Government Supposedly Goes Broke

According to the doomy rhetoric from the governmedia, America will go broke and collapse on August 2 because Republicans don't want to raise both taxes and the debt even higher. Not Obama though — he will be living large:
[The Moonbat Messiah] is planning an extravagant fundraising bash Aug. 3 at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, including a birthday concert teeming with celebrities and — for couples contributing $35,800 — a private dinner with the president. All this just one day after the government is scheduled to run out of cash!
Undoubtably, the sight of so much money getting thrown around and dissolute stars crooning to Obama will make a stirring contrast with a federal government bankruptcy featuring unpaid government workers, seniors and soldiers wondering how they'll afford the groceries, shuttered national parks, and angry investors trying to cash out their Treasury Bills.
If the government defaults, you can be sure the birthday bacchanal will do much more to harm Obama's reelection prospects than help them.
Except that he has the media on his side to spin events in his favor. In any case, hysterical lies notwithstanding, the only way the government is going to default on the debt is if Democrats are allowed to keep lifting the ceiling. But maybe Tax Cheat Timmy's Treasury Department should take out a loan from Lord Obama just in case.
