Even before the most recent slide in President Obama’s popularity numbers, his supporters were beginning to complain that his campaign’s attempts at online outreach were getting a little grabby. Is it possible that anyone doesn’t know that Sunday is the president’s 52nd birthday? Not if the Democratic Party and Organizing for Action have anything to say about it.
They are kind overdoing it with the president's birthday card emails. I know we have to collect emails for the midterms so I won't complain.

Being asked 9 times to sign a President's birthday card I'm disappointed in is a good patience practice. Happy Birthday President Obama.

Why would I want to send President Obama a birthday card? This is the worst kind of political spam. It's embarrassing.
