The Transparent President … White House Refuses to Release Cost of Obama Date Night to NYC


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?

Vanderbilt – ‘09

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.

      I’ll bet just the rooms and meals ran over 150k.

      And this is coming from a country boy who’s estimate is always bottom dollar.


    2. Waterboy on June 2nd, 2009 8:36 am

      I’ll estimate 650k, and remember, I’m always low bid.

      This money should be used to buy health insurance for some of those poor souls Obama is always talking about.

      Selective transparency, selective redistribution, selective
      industry accumulation/bankrupts, selective dealership
      closings, selective Constitution avoidance, selective
      paybacks, selective promise keeping (if at all), etc.
      We can deduce that this current occupant
      of the White House is a very discriminating person.
      Such Taste he is getting!

      Can’t wait to find out where the Trillions of our
      dollars has been allocated by this calculating fellow.

      Hey, just buy a GM or Chrysler and you will be paying yourself back the money borat invested without your consent into the auto union. In no time you will be rich beyond your wildest dreams too!

      Oh, that is IF the auto companies are managed right, a community organizer is at the helm so rest assured!

      i’d say with the media friends along to photograph this shindig so the osamas’ can get on the front page, $500,000.00.

    6. SUPER DAVE on June 2nd, 2009 11:19 am

      and how mwny more pairs of $500.00 shoes were purchased with our tax dollar ? it’s a dictatorship in the making democrats. you should do the right thing and come over to the right side of your country because just in case you didn’t know it, HE’S SCREWING YOU TOO !

      The silence of the Kommander-in-Thief and his lapdog, Mainstream Media on this issue as well as the Army recruiter-assistant murdered by a Muslim convert is positively disgusting.

      We’re so scr*wed I can’t stand it!

    8. SUPER DAVE on June 2nd, 2009 3:25 pm

      the trillions of dollars evidently have gone to corrupt government pet projects. not to mention ballooning the government to a size never known in the US.
      it has been said that this money went to pay back favors that were done for buttcrack obama to get him in the white house.
      i have seen no jobs created and i have electricians coming here with no work , losing their homes, autos, and breaking up families all because the stimulus has done absolutely nothing for the economy. we will be next when the payments come due on this money. impeach the buttcrack today !!

      what about Bush’s SEVENTY SEVEN !!! trips to Crawford at $225k per trip?? Who cares about this crap for either President? I used to love to come here to see updates on missing persons and criminal cases but this Obama bashing is getting so old!!! Is this the way scared monkeys is going to be from now on? If so, I guess I’ll just go straight to Blink on Crime from now on.

      Practically all Obama actions have
      been behind Closed Doors, put out
      at the last minute with a high sense
      of urgency. If there were Republicans
      opposed to this travesty, you’d never
      know it by their responses.

      No surpirise that the transparancy is not there. Well, maybe Barak will keep that promise eventually. After all, it took him five months to keep his word about the dog to his children and six to keep this one to Michelle. Just don’t hold your breath!

      Main Entry:

      Inflected Form(s):
      plural trans·par·en·cies

      1: something transparent ; especially : a picture (as on film) viewed by light shining through it or by projection
      2: the quality or state of being transparent


      Main Entry:

      Latin opacus

      1: exhibiting opacity : blocking the passage of radiant energy and especially light
      2 a: hard to understand or explain

      The process-

      All items are placed in a transparent globe.

      Then that globe is inserted into the much larger
      opaque globe.

      Media Press Release: America, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

      [...] his “Muslim father” again. Rah, rah for Islam”. Is this just more of the “transparency” from The Chosen [...]

      Misery loves company, I understand how you feel completely. I want my country back.

      Jimmy Carter is getting giddy at the thought, his presidency will not be the worst in history.

    16. SUPER DAVE on June 3rd, 2009 11:39 am

      #9: good bye ! maybe blink on crime will have a section on the corrupt president.

    17. Michelle Smith on June 3rd, 2009 1:38 pm

      #15 And I didn’t think we’d ever see anyone worse than Jimmy Carter but I was wrong.
