Evita & Michelle Spend Your Money For Broadway Junket

The Peronistas of America are headed to NYC tonight, on the taxpayer’s dime of course, to catch a Broadway show.

How many of you have been able to jet back-and-forth to NYC lately?  But its okay, we will never know how much it cost.

For the evening, the first couple jetted to New York City for date night. A Broadway show and probably dinner were on tap.

The White House refused to say how much the trip was costing taxpayers.

“Hi, guys,” Obama said to reporters and visitors gathered at the White House as he and Michelle left for their night out.  Both were decked out:  She wore her hair up, heels and a sleeveless black ruffled dress that fell below the knee while he went tieless in a dark suit and white shirt.

My first thought:  what is wrong with staying in DC?

If the Obamas wanted to catch a show closer to the White House, they had some choices in Washington: Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia” at the Folger Elizabethan Theatre; Valerie Harper in “Looped” at the Lincoln Theatre; “Rent,” at the Warner Theatre; Noel Coward’s “Design for Living” at the Shakespeare Theatre Company; or Stoppard’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll” at the Studio Theatre.

Had this been the Bushes, the networks would be breaking into primetime to begin criticizing the trip.  But lucky for Obama, he has an aggressive media somewhat like the Soviets had.

Aren’t liberals even the teeniest upset about this junket, too???  I wonder when the American people will wake up and realize that they elected a Diva and his Wife to the White House.   While Barack spends our future in billions and billions of dollars, he enjoys a Broadway show tonight. 

Good one, Mr. President.  That hurt.

  1. I hope they took the Metroliner to New York. A round trip on the train would be a helluva lot cheaper than taking Air Force One. Isn´t he the one that has been lecturing executives about their jets? Isn´t he the one that told us we´re going to have to make some sacrifices? Since he seems to like some fast food they should have rented a dvd and called Pizza Hut.

  2. #43 CH is exactly right. The left destroyed R Bork, Clearance Thomas s reputations. Most recently two hispanics in the Bush administration. But the right is suppose to go easy on Obamas nominees? After the fact the media tries to imply that Democrats cooperated and helped Pres Reagan. When in fact they fought him every step of the way. When he turned out to be one of the most popular Presidents in 100 years, all of a sudden Democrats and the media forgot what obstructionists they were. The left wants only Democrats to play hardball. Those on the right who comply are fools, it will get them no credit with the liberals anyway. Fight for what you think is right. Then let the chips fall where they may.

  3. Ditto, Roberto.

    Steve – I don’t think the president should be a prisoner in the White House.

    The thing that riles so many conservatives (and others. I am sure) is that the Dems spend an awful lot of time lecturing us about our “greed” and the extravagances of the private sector and turn around and pull stunts that make Dennis Kozlowsk (disgraced CEO of Tyco) look like an amateur.

    Remember all the posturing a few months back about the CEOs of the Big 3 going to DC in corporate jets? Well the price being paid for that little dose of liberal demagoguery is thousands of blue-collar jobs in places like Wichita, KS.

  4. All I can think of with this story is that the “Charcoaled Kennedys” have moved-on-up.

    How long before Michelle starts speaking French, ditches the JCrew for something more regal and we see Obama lighting up some $500 Cuban cigars?

    Charcoaled Kennedys relivin’ Camelot.

  7. “Charcoaled Kennedys”. Good one!

  8. I read that the Obamas flew down in a Gulfstream and not a 747 (VC-25) so the carbon footprint wasn’t all that big.

  9. Yeah, but remember: Barry’s always ready to do important Presidential business, ‘cuz he’s never without his Sooper Dooper Secure Obama Blackberry!

    Snort!

  10. Bush was treated badly by the Left, as Clinton was treated badly by the Right.

    Clinton was treated badly by the right? How so? Holding him accountable for lying to a grand jury is treating him badly?

    Bush was, and still is, called a liar by Democrat politicians and the mainstream media, despite every bipartisan and nonpartisan report concluding that he did not. Clinton was excused for lying to a grand jury even though he admitted he did.

    Bush was burned in effigy; plays, books and movies were written, produced and performed encouraging his assassination.

    Bush was held accountable for the negligence of a Democrat Mayor and a Democrat Governor, despite having repeatedly begged them to allow him to step in, and despite having launched the biggest, fastest most effective emergency response in world history.

    Bush was blamed for an economic collapse that he repeatedly warned (over 25 times) would happen if the irresponsible, corrupt practices at Fannie and Freddy were not reformed. Democrats filibustered those reforms and then blamed him when the inevitable happened.

    How was it that poor Clinton was treated badly again?

  11. Um President Clinton looked into a camera and lied to me , lied to us all!
    And he disgraced the office. Because as his wife yelled to him he couldn’t put aside his own desires to maintain a standard of decency we should easily expect from any President. One of GW Bushs great achievements is returning decency to the office. No intern scandals, no selling of Lincoln bedrooms, no hiding in the back of cars to skunk away to trysts.

  12. We are being lectured daily about tightening our belts, doing our share. It would be nice to have a leader who led by example. Didn’t behave like a Russian Tsar, or like Marie Antoinette.
    That is what riles us so much, we are being treated like sheeple – do what the lord and master demands and be quiet while he dazzles us with his wonderful life style.

    Then the lefties come out and whine – Bush did it!! He didn’t have lavish parties, he didn’t make every lunch break a photo op. He didn’t fly Laura to Texas for a special Valentines date, or NY for the Theater.

    We didn’t get hope, but we sure got change – to something America never had before – not a president of the people, but one who believes he is way above the people, and will shove it down our throats daily.

  13. When Bush was at his ranch in Texas, the media reported, and the Left complained, that he was frittering away his time “on vacation.” As pointed out above, never mind the foreign leaders entertained in Crawford or the meetings with cabinet members held there.

    Is anyone else old enough to remember how LBJ’s visits to his ranch in Texas were reported? The media used to say that LBJ was at “the Texas White House.” In other words, Republican president goes to his ranch, he’s “on vacation.” Democrat president goes to his ranch, he’s “at the Texas White House.”

    As for Obama’s junket to New York, the salient points have already been made. Obama has been lecturing us about our carbon footprints. Obama called the auto executives “tone deaf” for the extravagance of flying their corporate jets to Washington. What does “Bush took vacations too” have to do with Obama’s staggering hypocrisy?

  14. It should be mentioned that Bush was criticized for not having enough lavish parties in the WH and for having so few state dinners and head-of-state guests (and invitations extended to a hostile press).

  15. both of them ignoring the catastrophe in New Orleans as people drowned waiting for Homeland [In]Security to do anything at all.

    I’ll take the Obamas any da

    My favorite was Mayor “Chocolate City” Nagin getting his ass out of Dodge, buying a house in Dallas while leaving the people who voted for him (assuming it wasn’t the mob) to rot.

    My favorite was Gov. Blanco using helicopters to survey her house. And let’s not forget she put a stop to any unnecessary building, except to remodel government offices.

    My favorite was Rep. William Jefferson (D, La.) commandeering military rescue vehicles to rescue his bribe money.

    My favorite was liberal media types who got all pissy because they weren’t allowed to splash photos of the dead on the news.

    My favorite was Anderson Vanderbilt’s fake tears.

    My favorite is liberal a-holes who delight in smearing many emergency personnel who responded and, like FEMA, were there almost immediately.

    My favorite is liberal a-holes who do everything they can to gloss over the colossal failure of liberalism. However, no matter how much you polish a turd, it’s still a turd.

    My favorite is the liberals who lied about all of the military being in Iraq while at the same time pissing and moaning about there not being enough in Iraq.

    My favorite were the liberals who called for James Lee Witt, who waited 3 weeks to respond to hurricane Floyd (the deadliest storm since Agnes), to take over in NO.

    And, of course my favorite is your beloved Obamas chowing down on Wagyu beef while folks in Tennessee and Kentucky froze to death.

    I could have added far more, but I’m tired.

    And LBJ was BBQing while thousands died in Vietnam.

  17. LBJ was a Democrat, it’s not the same.

  18. #45 The Old Catheter blames Condi Rice, Secretary of State, for not attending to New Orleans when Katrina blew in.

    So, it stands to reason, that Hillary Clinton had better have her thunder thighs present and all aquiver at the first sign of any upcoming national disasters.

    I don’t know why, but we should attempt to keep the Old Catheter accommodated. Perhaps the Post Master General should go along for good measure.
