Happy 51st Birthday President Barack Obama by Marilyn Monroe

Today, August 4, 2012, Erika Smith, Marilyn Monroe and Norma Jean impersonator, wishes our President Barack Obama a very Happy 51st Birthday. This video birthday card pays tribute to our beloved Marilyn as Erika sports her equally famous feather boa while featuring four of our presidential watches. Each watch has been designed by an artist and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Marilyn features these Barack Obama presidential watches from our collection. From left to right are:

The “COOL” Barack Around The Clock.

We want to hit the Target November 2012

Let’s do it again! Encore 2012.

The Official Portrait watch.

And please remember, you can always design your own Obama Watch and make it a unique family heirloom.

And we can not forget the one and only original Marilyn Monroe singing happy birthday to President John F. Kennedy on May 19, 1962.

We lost Marilyn just three short months later.

Obama 20. Romney 1. Give that Obama a Presidential Watch.

When we last left the playing field scoring accomplishments between the two Presidential candidates, it was President Obama: 10 and Romney 0. I’ve been thinking about that, and to be fair, Romney deserves to score one in the accomplishments column for the successful running of the Olympics in Utah.

Now let’s see, are there any other accomplishments I can list for Romney?

Anyone? Anyone?

Yes, you in the back? Bain Capital? Well, yes, it was a success for him but we’re looking for accomplishments that go beyond what someone did for themselves. A President who just looked out for himself wouldn’t be a very good President, now would he?

All right, it seems there are no more accomplishments we can list for Romney. Now let’s see if we can find more accomplishments for Obama. It could be tough. You know, many Republicans think Obama hasn’t accomplishment anything. And they should know, because they’re blocked every Obama proposal in the Senate even if it might have been a good bill for America.

Here are 10 more accomplishments for President Obama. All are documented so you can check them out

11. Created the post of Chief Performance Officer, whose job it is to make operations more efficient to save the federal government money.

12. On his first full day as President, he froze White House salaries.

Obama at the GM plant in in South Korea. Wait, that’s not America.

13. He committed to phasing out unnecessary and outdated weapons systems, and also signed the Weapons Systems Acquisition Reform Act to stop waste, fraud and abuse in the defense procurement and contracting system.

14. He completed the massive TARP financial and banking rescue plan, and recovered virtually all of its costs.

15. He created the Making Home Affordable home refinancing plan for beleaguered homeowners.

16. He oversaw a bailout of General Motors that saved at least 1.4 million jobs, and put pressure on the company to change its practices, resulting in GM returning to its place as the top car company in the world.

Obama signing a bill

17. He signed the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act giving  the federal government more tools to investigate and prosecute fraud in every corner of the financial system. It also created a bipartisan Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission to investigate the financial fraud that led to the economic meltdown.

18. He signed the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure (CARD) Act, designed to protect consumers from unfair and deceptive credit card practices.

19. He initiated a $15 billion plan designed to encourage increased lending to small businesses.

A Vote Obama Watch
Vote Obama

20. He dismantled the Minerals Management Service, thereby moving forward to cut ties between energy companies and the government.

So if we tally up today’s scores, it’s Obama 20 accomplishments and Romney 1, but it is still anybody’s race  to win. Why, if there were just another 19 more Olympics in Utah, it would be a Hell of a lot closer.

Therefore, I must conclude:

The best man for President of the United States is the President of the United States.

Give that man a Presidential Watch. You know like Encore 2012 by Marc Giles, the OfficialPortrait Watch by Kevin Beck or Illustrated Obama by Caty Bartholomew. Or that gorgeously handsome Vote Obama 2012 watch by Oz Durham, or the simple, but beautiful Re-Elect Obama by Chris Cerase. Or even David Bell’s rock ‘n roll classic, The Barack Around the Clock Watch. Or the all time-classic look of the Official Portrait watch by Kevin Beck.

10 Things Obama Has Done. Name 3 Romney Accomplishments!

The Party of No! would have you believe that Barack Obama has been the worst President in American history! That he’s ruined America! That secretly hates the US.


The Party of No! No new gun laws!

Truth is, Obama’s been a good President in a terrible economic and dangerous time. I didn’t say he’s been great. The Republicans would never allow that. But against all odds, inheriting what he did, and with The Party of No! blocking his every move, he’s been strong, courageous, fair, intelligent, and even productive.

Am I satisfied with the American economy? Of course not. But The Party of NO! filibustered President Obama’s Jobs Act in the Senate, even though several independent economic analysts estimated the Jobs Bill would increase the GDP 1-3%.

Here are 10 Things President Obama Has Done. Can you Name three of Romney’s Accomplishments

1. Legislative Prowess
Despite the characterizations of some, Obama’s success rate in winning congressional votes on issues was an unprecedented 96.7% for his first year in office.  Though he is often cited as superior to Obama, President Lyndon Johnson’s success rate in 1965 was only 93%.

2. Fiscal Responsibility
Within days after taking office, he signed an Executive Order ordering an audit of government contracts, and combating waste and abuse.


The Party of No! No business regulations!

3. Improving the Economy, Preventing Depression
He pushed through and signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, otherwise known as “the stimulus package,” despite the fact that not one Republican voted for that bill. In addition, he launched so that taxpayers could track spending from the Act.   

4. Wall Street Reforms and Consumer Protection
Ordered 65 executives who took bailout money to cut their own pay until they paid back all bailout money.


The Party of No! Nothing Obama wants!

5. Anti-Discrimination
He advocated for and signed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which made it a federal crime to assault anyone based on his or her sexual orientation or gender identity.

6. Civil Rights
He pushed through, signed and demanded the Pentagon enact a repeal of the discriminatory “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy that forced soldiers to lie to fight for their country, and put our troops at risk by disqualifying many qualified soldiers from helping.

7. Fighting Poverty
He provided a $20 billion increase for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps).


The Party of No! No women is in charge of her body.


8. Improved Foreign Relations and American Status Abroad
He visited more countries and met with more world leaders than any previous president during his first six months in office.

9. Defense
He took steps to severely weaken al Qaeda and limited their ability to terrorize the world.

10. Treated  Soldiers with Respect
He made sure that families of fallen soldiers could be on hand when the body arrives at Dover AFB, by providing funding for it.  He also ended the media blackout on coverage of the return of fallen soldiers.

The Party of No! No Environmental Protection Agency!


I’m sorry. I interrupted you. Were you going to list some of Romney’s accomplishments? All right, while you’re thinking about it.

One more thing.

Obama Buys Presidential Watches. Mitt Buys Twitter followers

OK, which is true? Did President Obama buy Obama for President watches or did Mitt Romney recently buy Twitter followers. Well, we know one is true and we’re not sure about the other one.

We’re sure President Obama didn’t buy any Obama Watches because he doesn’t have to. As the President of Obama Watches, I personally handed then-Senator Barack Obama 5 Obama Watches in 2008 at the request of the Democratic National Committee. And if he wanted more, I’d be happy to give them to him.

But it does appear that Mitt Romney’s campaign may have purchased 140,000 Twitter followers over the last weekend. The Republican presidential nominee gained 116,000 Twitter followers last Friday and another 24,00 on Saturday.

Mitt Romney’s campaign proved you can “Buy friends and Influence People” if there reports are true that Camp Romney purchased over 100, 000 Twitter followers this past weekend

The huge jump in Twitter followers was noticed by Zach Green who runs, a Web site that monitors social media activity in politics. It is possible that someone other than Mitt Romney’s campaign may have purchased the Twitter followers to embarrass Romney. But then again, Romney has proved time and again he doesn’t need any help embarrassing himself.

And to be fair, the Romney campaign said they didn’t purchase any Twitter followers and they’ve reached out to Twitter to figure out who purchased the Tweetsters.

Even with the large increase in Twitter followers the Romney camp scored this weekend, he remains far behind President Obama who has 17.8 million Twitter followers.

One reason there may be truth to the report that presidential candidate Romney purchased Twitter followers is that the billionaires supporting Romney’s campaign were instrumental in getting the Supreme Court to change campaign finance regulations so organization could form political action committee and hide the millions of dollars they contribute to the campaign.

So while we don’t know yet for sure that Romney’s campaign purchased 140,000 Twitter followers, we do know they are doing all they can to buy the election. And that’s something worth Tweeting about.

George Bush Endorses Obama Presidential Watches

It’s true! George Bush endorses Obama Presidential Watches! Yes, THAT George Bush! The one who used to live in a White House. The same George Bush who endorsed Obama Watches in the 2008 campaign.

Now we know there might be some confusion since George Bush is a relatively common name. That’s why we want to assure you that we’re talking about the George Bush who lives in a white house in Belvidere, NJ. Not that other George Bush he’s sometimes confused with.

Our George Bush didn’t screw up the economy. He’s too smart for that. That’s why he protects his own economy by capturing rainwater in a barrel in his backyard. He recycles that rainwater for use in his own house.

Back in 2008, the George Bush we contacted agreed that, “It’s time for a change.” We haven’t spoken to him recently, but we hope he’s changed his tune because now that Obama has been in office for almost four years, we think “It’s not time for a change.” Unless, of course, you’re talking about changing Congress to give the majority in the House back to the Democrats. That would certainly help President Obama get through the kind of legislation we need to turn the economy around and put through the kind of progressive plan that would help America get back on track.

While we’re at it, we’d also like to thank the many grass roots groups who support President Obama’s re-election and Democrats across AMerica. We’re proud that instead of having the support of political fat cats like the Party of No!, we support real grass roots organizations like Get Out Dem Votes, who’ve done an excellent job supporting Democratic candidates!

President Obama is fortunate to have groups like Get Out Dem Votes support his re-election. And Obama Watches is fortunate to had THIS George Bush support their effort to re-elect President Obama.

Presidential Watches? Obama’s got five of them in a box under his bed!

I’m pretty sure President Obama has the five Obama for President watches I gave him in 2008 in a shoebox under his bed in the White House.

I really did give Barack Obama 5 presidential watches. I had been selling Obama for President Watches online in 2008 and one day I got a call from a member of the Democratic National Committee asking me if I’d like to give Senator Obama one my watches. They told me they wanted me to give it to him at a fundraiser in Philadelphia.

On a hot July night, I was in a room with 35-45 people who had donated $40,000 each, or $80,000 a couple, to meet and great candidate Obama in a private setting.

Me? I was donating 5 Obama Presidential Watches. In cheesy gold boxes.

The “$40,000 a handshake” crowd and I were ushered into a private room. Candidate Obama arrived about half an hour late. We had been grouped in a circles and Candidate Obama worked the crowd, shaking hands, but not staying more than 20-30 seconds chatting with any person or couple.

When he got to me, I went to hand him 5 really cool Obama for President watches, including, my favorite at that time, the “Love Your Mama. Vote Obama.” watch.

Before I could hand the watches to Senator Obama, the Secret Service grabbed them out of my hands and took them into another room. They emerged 10 minutes later, handing the 5 Obama Watches to an Obama aide.

A serious looking Secret Service guy wearing sun glasses walked over to me, smiled very briefly, then winked at me and said, “Pretty cool watches.”

I’m pretty sure President Obama keeps the 5 Obama watches I gave him in a shoebox under his bed in the White House. I hope he doesn’t use my coupon code to save money on my 2010 Collection of Obama Watches. But if he does, I will honor it.

It’s not just the economy stupid. It’s the Republicans, stupid!

The Republicans are right that the main issue in the 2012 Presidential Election is the economy. But what they aren’t telling the American people is that they’ve fought the President’s proposals on the economy for 4 years now, even though doing nothing was worse that doing something. They were even willing to let the American automobile industry go bankrupt, rather than rev up the economy

The President proposed a plan to help with the housing and mortgage crisis. The Party of No said, “No.”  The President proposed adding millions of jobs by rebuilding America’s fragile infrastructure. The Party of No said, “No.”

Watch Obama At His First Press Conference
President Obama’s first press conference

Recently, the President proposed using the half of the billions of dollars we weren’t going to have to spend on the War in Iraq to prop up our fragile economy.  The Party once again said, “No.”

It makes you wonder what the Party of No would say “Yes.” You think if I offered them a discount on Obama Watches, they’d say “No?” Heck, they’d probably say “Yes” to that. I should tell them about our “Mitt Romney Changed his Mind” Sale on our Deal of the Day We page. Nah! Let ‘e pay full price . They can afford it and we can use the money to keep spreading our viral campaign to re-elect Obama.

There is still much that needs to be done in America regarding our economy. But to give the reins of government back to the Party whose policies helped sink the American economy would be a tragic mistake. On Tuesday, November 6, Democrats, independents and even fair-minded Republicans should put America first and vote to re-elect President Barack Obama, telling the Party of No, “No!”

If you’d like to help us spread our viral message “President Obama for President,” there are two ways you can support us even if you don’t buy an Obama Watch. If you leave a comment on any of our blogs posts or, if you have a blog, and you mention Obama Watches and provide a hyperlink, that will encourage Google to send us more traffic.

Thanks for stopping by. We hope you come back soon.

The President’s Record on National Security

President Obama is committed to keeping the sacred trust we hold with members of our nation’s all-volunteer military. The President has fought to expand and improve benefits for veterans and their families—from access to the health care they need to the education and job opportunities they deserve when they return home.

The President and his administration, along with the First Lady and Dr. Jill Biden, have secured commitments from private sector companies to hire unemployed veterans and worked to make sure returning servicemembers can find work when they come home.

The President also took executive actions to help match veterans with potential employers, streamline the job search for returning servicemembers, and is working to provide veterans and their families better access to job training. Recently, the President announced his Veterans Jobs Corps initiative, which will put veterans back to work on a range of projects that benefit from the skills they developed in the military.

As part of the President’s plan to support American jobs, he signed into law the Returning Heroes and Wounded Warrior tax credits to encourage businesses to hire unemployed veterans and veterans with service-connected disabilities.

 When President Obama took office, the U.S. was engaged in two wars and faced terrorist threats at home and abroad.
  • President Obama has refocused our security priorities to concentrate on the most serious threats facing our country, promote our values, and improve our standing in the world.

  • President Obama is committed to strengthening America’s leadership by maintaining a strong military and staying true to our values and ideals.

President Obama fulfilled his promise to responsibly and safely bring our troops home from Iraq, and is making sure returning service members have the support they need.

As recently as July 19, President Obama spoke about the threat of cyber security in an op ed piece in the Wall Street Journal. I’m glad President Obama understands that that threat to America’s business and personal lives is real and ever-present.

As much as we are a profit-making business, we also support Obama’s candidacy because we believe that the best man for President of the United Sates is the President of the United States.

President Obama vs. the Party of No!

From Day One, the Republican Congress had a singular agenda: Fight everything the President proposed, even if it was for the good of the country.

At every turn, Republicans used their Majority in the House to ensure that nothing the President sought for America ever saw the light of day. There has never been such unilateral opposition to a President from an opposing party in our history.

Nevertheless, the President has used the power of his office to achieve a few important victories:


President Obama and the American flag
President Obama’s agenda for America was thwarted at every turn by the Party of No.

1/29/2009 Equal Pay for Equal Work

3/30/2009 Saving the US Auto Industry

5/22/2009 Credit Card Reform

10/28/2009 Hate Crimes Prevention Act

3/23/2010 Affordable Care Act

3/30/2010 Student Loan Reform

7/21/2010 Wall Street Reform

12/17/2010 Middle-Class Tax Cuts

12/22/2010 Repeal of “Don’t Ask. Don’t Tell.”

7/29/2011 Raising Fuel Efficiency Standards

12/18/2011 Ending the War in Iraq

Considering that the Party of No controlled the House of Representatives for the last four years and fought the President’s every move, it’s remarkable the President achieved all that he did.
