Transparency … It’s all one big joke to these people and “WE THE PEOPLE” are the brunt of this sick humor and will be paying for this .
So how much money did our do as I say, not as I do President just waste in tax payer money? Hey Mr. President, I have a date night planned this weekend, got a spare $250K you can loan me? Is this the proper image and message that a President should be sending to Americans, who as Barack Obama has stated these are the worst times since the Great Depression?

Audacious misrepresentation thru parsing of the
language (words mean SOMETHING all right!).
“Transparency” was his cry! Zero Transparency
is what we get. Steering the Country ruthlessly
towards a Socialist Dictatorship, he boldly wastes
our treasures in support of his own Partisan Invincibility
The complicit liberal media bias continues with their love affair and cover up of Barack Obama. Imagine if a Republican President during a recession wasted tax payer money on not just date night, but date weekend in NYC? The press would be up in arms. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi would be calling for a special counsel to investigate and left wing loons would be calling for impeachment. Instead, because it is the “Obamamessiah” they just laugh it off as “WE THE PEOPLE” get screwed once again. On the very weekend prior to 1000’s of GM employees losing their job, King & Queen Obama are spending the tax payer dollars that these people don’t have.
Barack Obama claimed he would be the “Transparent” president. What a bunch of BS that has been. Instead of keeping the campaign promise to his wife Michelle in going to NYC, maybe The Chosen One should have kept the promise of transparency.
In another odd twist left unexamined by the media, the White House on Monday said it simply would not release the cost of President Obama’s weekend jaunt to New York City, where the First Couple had dinner and caught a Broadway show.
Spokesman Robert Gibbs, keeping the White House press corps in stiches, as he always does, said the Obamas would have preferred using a commercial airline shuttle to New York and back, but the Secret Service would not allow such unprotected travel (ba da bing).
There is something inherently wrong with a President who tells people to do one thing and then does exactly the opposite. Obama tells the American people that they must cut their budget; however he does not. He tells automakers like GM, Government Motors, that they must downsize, yet our federal government does not. Obama tell corporate executives not to fly private jets that waste money, yet Obama finds it perfectly okay. Now when we confront Obama as to they cost … he tells us to go to hell. Folks,
BARBARA WALTERS: How did you feel when you read about the three heads of the auto companies taking private planes to Washington?
BARACK OBAMA: Well, I thought maybe they’re a little tone deaf to what’s happening in America right now. And this has been a chronic problem, not just for the auto industry, I mean, we’re sort of focused on them
HE WORKS FOR US AND DON’T EVER FORGET THAT! Check out the 5 points that go into the calculation of the expense of what it must of cost in the Washington Times.
One early estimate (from the New York Post) put the cost at $24,000. Absurdly low. The Daily Mail in London threw out another number — $75,000. Sure, three times as much as the first estimate, but still probably spectacularly low. Remember, joyriding Air Force One around for a few hours over Manhattan a couple months ago cost $250,000, so the cost of the weekend trip was likely not likely that low.
With the White House simply refusing to say how much taxpayer money it spent, here’s a helpful way to calculate the cost of the trip.
I guess Michelle Obama is not a cheap date.
