President Obama seems to have a little trouble keeping track of birthdays, even his own. During a press conference in late June he incorrectly identified his daughter Malia as being 13 years old. She was 12 at the time and her birthday wasn't for another five days.
Then in another presser on Friday, Obama said he would be turning 50 "in a week." Actually, he won't hit his half-a-century mark for almost another three weeks, according to USA Today. His birthday is on Aug. 4.
We hope, for his sake, his memory doesn't fail him when it comes to his and Mrs. Obama's anniversary. Just in case, it's Oct. 3.
