    Yep I think Mr. Obama might have done one of those duhh what the hell was I thinking,

    Obamas' Date Night in New York City Draws Criticism - Political News - FOXNews.com

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

    Even before the Obamas left Washington, the there-and-back trip drew criticism from Republicans. They questioned the president's decision to travel to New York for a night of entertainment during a recession and while automakers struggle to survive.

    It was just a few months ago that auto executives were roundly criticized when they traveled to Washington for congressional hearings in pricey private planes.

    Yeah, Obama should be tightening his belt too.

    How much did it cost the taxpayers for transportation each and every time Bush went to his ranch instead of staying at the White House.

    When Obama goes back and forth to a place in Chicago many times, then maybe the right has something to gripe about.

    Oh I was hoping someone would bring this up. First let agree that when Mr. Bush was in office we never had the finacial problems we are facing now.

    Second do you know how many time he actually over a eight year period went to the Ranch.

    Finally as reported in the Op piece if he want to go out on the town he could have done it in DC and not look so hypocritical.

    Frankly I don't see the logic in your post. You're basically saying it's okay to go to NYC, but not Chicago.
