RNC Sends DNC ‘You Didn’t Bake This’ Obama Birthday Cake
The Republican National Committee (RNC) sent the Democratic National Committee (DNC) a birthday cake on Friday, but the DNC sent it back.
The cake read “you didn’t bake this” over a picture of President Obama. Text written in icing reads, “Happy birthday, Mr. President.” The cake marks the occasion of the president’s birthday, which is Saturday, with a play on the “you didn’t build that” controversy.
“If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” Obama told a crowd last month. “The point is, when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative but also because we do things together.”
Republicans revolted over the line, calling it proof that Obama lacks belief in hard work and American entrepreneurs, and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney has referred back to “you didn’t build that” on the presidential campaign trail.
