Washington (CNN) – On President Obama's 49th birthday, the Republican National Committee is out with a new website full of electronic greetings intended to slam the president and national Democrats. The Democratic National Committee is hitting back, referring to the RNC's move as "tired, childish, political games that do nothing to help anyone."
The new site, baracksbirthdaycards.com, hosts 11 digital birthday cards from which users can choose. All of the cards are mock greetings from various political or governmental figures to the president. The mock messages come mostly from Democrats with the exception of the card featuring Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who passed on the GOP primary earlier this year and is now mounting a non-party-affiliated bid for Florida's open Senate seat.
One card features Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, and former Virginia gubernatorial hopeful Creigh Deeds. Since Obama took office, Coakley, Corzine, and Deeds have all lost high-profile statewide races to Republican opponents.
"We got you that dinner jacket you had your eye on," the card featuring Coakley, Corzine, and Deeds says. "We noticed you were missing some coattails."
In a reference to two very recent Democratic ethics cases in the House of Representatives, a card featuring an image of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says "What do you give the guy who has everything? How about Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters? Hugs and Kisses!"
The card featuring Vice President Joe Biden is tied to Biden's history of making verbal gaffes. "For your birthday, you won't hear a f@#&ing peep out of me."
The mock card from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid takes issue with Democrats' approach to the economy. "Sorry no gift this year. I'm going to need every dime to defend our failed economic policies."
Other mock cards available on the site feature White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, Obama senior adviser David Axelrod, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Rep. Charlie Rangel of New York, Gov. Crist, Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, and former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Once users select a card, they can provide the e-mail addresses of up 20 of their friends to send the card to at the same time it gets sent to the president.
The new website also has a page where users can donate to the RNC.
In an e-mail to CNN, a spokesman for the DNC suggested that the new site was a waste of time.
The RNC's "time would probably be better spent coming up with new ideas to help American families, instead of on these tired, childish, political games that do nothing to help anyone," DNC national press secretary Hari Sevugan said.

Is the Republican Party run by 5 year olds?
is this the best these idiots can do the republicans are racist and this is just one example that get people all crank up on hatred by first making fun of someone and then turning it into a free for all and when the racial remarks come out they run and hide like the cowards they are and say they had nothing to do with that WERE ARE THE REAL ISSUES LIKE JOBS but is always comes out of there mouth that we should keep the tax cuts for the wealthy they have there tax cuts and I don't see any jobs so why don't we make a new tax that says you get tax cuts when you create jobs no jobs no tax cuts
This is just inappropriate and so immature- really these are the political leaders of this country? Embarrassing.
LOL. Gawd, you low-life republicans. It's his birthday.
Happy Birthday, Mr. President!
... and once again Republicans spend a lot of money to prove to America that they really don't understand humor.
I guess George Soros will be throwing and paying for a big birthday Bash for das furer Obama, just like he completely paid for the Clinton wedding.
he always funds his soldiers, no matter what the name says next to the letter d, when you vote Democrat you are voting for George Soros.
once again, the retards, repulsive, repugnants, imbeciles and most of all conservatards show exactly what is wrong in this country: lack of intelligence, culture and civil discourse, add to that the vulgarity of the alaska hag and the result is their below plant level IQ, notice I did not say IQs.
Nothing new. Just another show of the total lack of respect that many Republicans show for our president. It's so hypocritical after they trashed anyone who opposed Bush as unpatriotic.
Way to stay classy Republicans!
Happy birthday to the worst President ever.
In retrospect, we were far to kind to the moron, George W. Bush....
This is why I became an independent instead of Republican. Regardless of what you think of his policies, he is president and deserves respect. This is a cheap, fundraising attempt.
I have never understood why politics and cchildishness should be siblings. RNC is extremely childish... Atleast wish your enemy a Happy Birthday on their special day... Politics should not turn us into demons... HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY PRESIDENT.
As a Republican I am deeply offended by this idiotic action taken by the out-of-touch RNC. How blatantly stupid!
Wow. Glad to see that the Republican National Committee is working so hard and focusing on the issues. Way to go RNC!
Childish at best. Don't these guys have anything else to do like immigrate to another country.
Where's the Barack the Magic Negro card? Stay classy GOP!
The RNC are scum and have no class. Dispicable people.
Just for the party of NO – when you can't dazzle them with brilliance (which has never been your strong point), baffle them with Bull Sh+t. True desperation is showing.
So classy! What a bunch of low life trash. Happy Birthday Mr. President. You are doing a great job.
Awwwww...does this hurt your wittle feewings, Mr Pwesident?
Believe me, this is nothing compared to the hate and abuse heaped on President Bush by the left wing and media during his eight years in office.
Republicans are perpetually 2 years old...
Just more distracting puerile behavior from the Republicans. What's next, you creepy GOP people? Gonna put the hate on Santa Clause on Christmas? From the party of NO to the party of "Bah Humbug." You guys are so low class that you make welfare recipients look like kings.
If the GOP put as much thought into helping our president and our country as it did in this stupid stunt, we would all be better off. How sad and childish!!!!!
Wow this is pretty low. Even for republicans. C'mon guys really?
