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.

Obama just stole $15 trillion from taxpayers. A Mossad operative works as his right hand man and a racist Hispanic is lined up for SC duty. Bush, Rumsfeld, Chenney, Perle, Wolfovitch and Rove still walk as free men? This Obama dude continues destroying what's left of America. Where are all the decent high power men and women in private practice and why are they not assembling order to show cause against all the criminality?

And for all you Dem listen to you. You're very hateful people. That's why I left that Party about, lets see, when did Clinton get in? Because it's turned into a bunch of hateful spiteful people who don't know the history of this great country and are slowing turning it into a European socialistic country. I realize most of you that drink the Barry Obama Kool aid are young and haven't lived much yet but man, read history and you'll see what's happening. Barry and his wife are spending YOUR money to fly around the country for DATE NIGHT!!!!!

If it had been Bush that did this........BSnbc would have run 24 hours a day non-stop and the left wing hypocrite communists would have been up in arms.

But since it's the Son of God, it's ok, leave him alone....

Are y'all really stupid enough to believe a ride on the regular jet used for airforce one is cheaper than the small lear jet they traveled on for this trip? By the way dummies, any aircraft the Prez is on is airforce one. Not to mention, the POTUS couldn't possibly fly commercial, you idiots - its called security! How quickly you forget all the flights the Bushes who got us into all this mess took while in office - and even Bush 41 turned a blind eye to members of his Administration (Sununu) who took unauthorized EXPENSIVE flights for dental visits!

We finally get a couple in the white house that is setting a good example for American families and yall are "actin' a fool." Less we forget how many trips Bush took to Camp David in his 1st YEAR in office....approx. 8. And that's just the first year. They're setting a better example of marriage and family than most of the people who respond negatively to this situation.

Between the jetting around the country on our dime for fund-raisers and non-stop campaigning, I don't know when this man works.

I have a real problem with arrogance and holier-than-thou attitude this guy has. President Bush quit playing golf because he didn't feel it looked right when we have soldiers giving their lives. This clown can't stop campaigning - and treating himself to things like a spoiled teenager who hasn't yet learned restraint.

I can't wait for the day this moron is an EX-president.
