WASHINGTON -- White House spokesman Robert Gibbs is declining to say what it cost for President Obama and his wife, Michelle, to eat dinner and take in a play in New York over the weekend.

Fine. I understand the security concerns. But they could have done it on their dime, not mine.
Who paid the babysitter?
We’re all going to have to make sacrifices.
And by “we”, I mean “you”....
LOL!! Fat chance. Mitch may have gotten her $500 sneakers dirty had she been forced to travel with the riff-raff.
The guy who now owns all those banks and car companies has to be able to strut his new lifestyle, no?
And the SS won’t let Barry tell us how much of our money he spent. Yeahhhhaaa...
$24,000 is what I read somewhere
Hell, that won’t even cover the helicopters in DC and NYC.
To be lectured about going into billions of dollars worth of debt by people who have spent the US into trillions of dollars worth of debt.

And somewhere in the shadows behind them who?
Who can possibly rule if no one who wants to do it can be allowed to?
Were all going to have to make sacrifices.
And by we, I mean you....
Truer by the day.
Wasn’t it barry who told CEO’s and Execs of bailed out banks that they couldn’t take junkets to Las Vegas on the public’s dime? I guess New York is different.
Best comment on the thread.
