Obama took his wife on a date to Manhattan for dinner and a show. No, they weren’t already in NY, he and Michelle, his staff and the press flew three jets to JFK for the evening out.
After dinner in the Village and a Broadway show, they helicoptered back to JFK and flew back to D.C.
It wasn’t that long ago that Obama was urging “shared sacrifice” to get through these tough economic times. Apparently, that’s for you and me – not him.
All these burger runs that Obama has been doing to look like an average Joe were obviously staged. The real Obama is an elitist who will use the trappings of power for personal ingratiation. It would have been one thing if he had already been in NY for some reason and decided to have a night out. But to specifically fly three jets to NY, helicopter into and out of Manhattan and then fly back to D.C. all on the same evening is disgusting.
I guess he won’t be criticizing any CEO’s for flying their private jets to D.C. for actual work – oops, he already did that.
One word: hypocrite.
