Date Night - They Deserve It

President Obama and and his wife deserve to be able to get a away and do things they enjoy such as; dining out and going to a show on Broadway. They deserve it just as much as any other couple deserves to go out do the things they enjoy together.

Unfortunately the position he holds as leader of the free world warrants a huge contingent of people to follow along, he can't move easily without large staff and security, which is a downside for him, but one that should not restrict his movement.

Regardless of whether or not someone agrees with his policies, he is our President, he deserves and needs to be protected, which should not stop him from doing the things that he and his wife enjoy.

Don't be petty and begrudge him some free time away from the job.

sorry I'm petty.It would have been cheaper to bring the broadway show to him! Why can't he order in and rent a movie like the rest of the country? $30,000+ is a pretty steep date night don't ya think.Geeeze

"Deserve" is the key word. Everybody thinks they deserve something. I deserve a president that understands the constitution and free enterprise.

Imagine if this was GWBush. On the night before GM went bust. How "out of touch" our media would report him to be.

You know, Frog, that balanced media of yours.
