Barack Hussein Obama II was born on this day (August 4, 1961) at the Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children in Honolulu, Hawaii, United States.

Obama isn’t planning anything big about his birthday but instead he will meet the entire Senate Democratic Caucus according to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

Happy Birthday Mr. President!
