The Obama's Date Night
— DrewM

So, what did you do last night? I'm guessing it didn't involve 3 Air Force jets, several USMC helicopters and adoring crowds.

"I am taking my wife to New York City because I promised her during the campaign that I would take her to a Broadway show after it was all finished," the president said yesterday after touching down at JFK for an intimate night on the town.

...The first stop after touch ing down at JFK was a meal at a low-key, but elegant, Greenwich Village restau rant, Blue Hill, which boasts farm fresh, locally grown dishes.

...Then it was up to Broadway, where they had tickets at the Belasco Theatre for "Joe Turner's Come and Gone," a play by August Wilson about a man coming to terms with the history of slavery.

The final tab for the President's night out....

Dinner and two tickets? A couple of hundred bucks

Transportation and security? Certainly well north of $100,000 (uneducated guess...it probably approaches a $1,000,000 or more)

Knowing the press has your back? Priceless.

I'm of two mind about this. A President shouldn't be a prisoner in the White House and the simple fact is it's expensive for him to do anything. It's just the reality of the modern world.

What does bother me is that had George W. Bush or any Republican had done this, especially during this economy, the Democrats and their press mouthpieces would be going nuts.

Just another one for the file I guess.

Of course the real question is, did the President 'get lucky' last night?

1 I don't get why the Obamas had to fly to NYC. Michelle has been able to leap great distances ever since she was exposed to gamma rays.
