Barack Obama -- The Price of Love

5/31/2009 11:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Want to do "date night" like the Obamas? Just get your hands on an unlimited budget, a private Gulfstream jet, and the United States Secret Service. Dinner and a movie is for suckers.

Barack Obama, Michelle Obama
President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle hopped a jet to New York last night to see a Broadway play and then grabbed some dinner at a chic West Village restaurant.

Barack Obama -- launch photosThe only problem, Barack critics say, is that it's the American taxpayers who footed the bill for the private planes that shuttled the Obamas back and forth (Air Force One got the night off). Obama sprung for the theater tix out of his own pocket.

With the economy in the crapper, the Prez can't even enjoy a night on the town without it being a national issue.

With all the things to do in D.C, did they have to spend taxpayer dollars for "date night". Michelle Obama looked plain and he seemed bored. I need my own bailout, just to go to the local movie theater.

For heaven's sake, let the man and his wife have a night out. He's working day and night to fix the mess Bush & Cheney left behind that nearly destroyed the country. You haters lost the election - deal with it. He is the President and deserves respect. When you call him names and make personal remarks about the First Lady, you're saying more about yourself than you are about them.

Besides, they look gorgeous. I hope they had a great night out with many more to come! They certainly deserve it.

What the hell are you guys talking about? Communist-really? Is that a real thought, or a lazy attempt at putting him down? I mean the guy has been working harder than any president in history at fixxing some of the woes that pro capitalism (without checks) Alan Greenspan brought on; and that makes him a "commie". His first 100 days were more productive than little georgie's whole 8 years and yet he can't have a date with his lady? I don't know about this site... I detect a little bigotry..maybe ignorance and fear as well.
