Barack Obama Celebrates 48th Birthday

144. IQ? Nope, President Obama's latest bowling score, says Robert Gibbs.

You'll remember, the President tossed a miserable 37, or something like that, back in the Pennsylvania Democratic primary, causing no end of grief and mockery. (And then there was that more recent gaffe comparing himself to a Special Olympian.)

Forty-eight years ago today, it was 1961 and John F. Kennedy was President of the United States.
Now, it's Barack Obama who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
And although many other things have changed in the last half-century, we have one thing going for us today
that even JFK couldn't offer at the height of his power.
Free cake.
