Barack And Michelle Take Air Force One on Joy Ride to New York for a Date
Flopping Aces ^ | 05-31-09 | Mike's America

em>I thought we had a serious financial crisis that required everyone to sacrifice?

PhotobucketYes friends, President Obama and First Lady Michelle had another of their famous "date nights" Saturday. Instead of clogging traffic in Washington, D.C. to visit a restaurant, they hopped on the Marine One helicopter to Andrews Air Force Base, jumped on Air Force One (a Gulfstream 500, not the 747) then flew up to New York City followed by TWO OTHER PLANES for staff and press (the 747 would have been cheaper).

Upon landing in New York several more helicopters, limos, vans, police, military and other staff were waiting to escort them to Blue Hill restaurant on Washington Place and later a Broadway play: 'Joe Turner's Come and Gone' at the Belasco Theater.

Imagine for a moment the "news" media reaction if President Bush had taken Laura out for a night in New York with half the Secret Service, the U.S. Military, New York's finest and the news media tagging along at taxpayer expense?

No flyovers with the 747 for a while. It might infuriate the sheep.

Yeah-king uhbama, the man who took America in more ways than one.

Did Michelle throw 'cake' to the little people as they took their martini laden bodies to the show?

Fox news reported that the tab to the American people was in the $50,000.00 to $100,000.00 range.

Considering some of her earlier outfits, when I first saw this pic, I thought the helicopter blades were part of her hat.”

I’ll suggest another - frivolous. These are hard times and those are taxpayer $$$ flying into the stratosphere. I have a few more, but I’ll leave it to others to add to the list.

Why not it’s not coming out of his pocket, the people who elected this phony are less than useful to him now.

She wears a dressy outfit, but he doesn’ bother with a tie. They are too tacky for words.

This first couple is behaving like the czar and czarina did right before the revolution.
BO tells the world we are “out of money” and then spends it on junk like this. Even the stupidest voters will soon catch on that they’ve been had by this fraud.

I was curious about this myself since he wears a tie in official circumstances.

Ahmadinejad and Iranians never wear a tie. Neckties are said to be decadent, un -islamic and viewed as ‘symbols of the Cross’ and the oppressive West.

Perhaps another ‘statement’ by Obama?

What was the tab to near bankrupt NYC for the massive police presence both in the Village at the eatery and in the theater district? Maybe Bloomie picke it up from his personal petty cash drawer.

I don’t believe we’ll hear the environmentalists screaming about the “global warming” caused by this unnecessary trip.

The trip caused a great deal of pollution and wasted our precious energy.

"joy ride"

I'm sure like all libs, the Obama's look on the perks of the presidency as their own little private party account.

LOL Michelle in her “Shimmy shimmy dress.”

It reminds me of something that would be worn by a taxi dancer from the musical Sweet Charity.

Hey big spender!

You can dress the woman up but it still doesn't make her a lady.
