Date Night for the Obamas: NYC, Broadway with RNC Hate (Pictures)

Well, all is negative in Republican Land.

They are now criticizing the Obamas for going to NYC, to Broadway for dinner and a show. The dastardly, nasty beasts. They don't understand that the Obamas have downsized everything and not taking the famous 747 jet. Oh, well when you are in the dumps, you jump on anything and hopes that it sticks. And the Obamas dined at the Blue Hill restaurant in Greenwich Village.

The Obamas dined at the Blue Hill restaurant near Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village, according to White House spokesman Josh Earnest.

h/t Escapade And full hit piece by RNC, here.
Well, you can say the Obamas are at least trying to keep the costs down. They downsized the transportation opting not to take the normal Air Force One 747.

It’s not like they took the $10 Fung Wah Bus either though. They just hopped on a smaller plane. Although it is still called Air Force One, it’s just part of the fleet.

The plane they took this afternoon is an Air Force Gulfstream V (C-37A) — a 12 passenger aircraft. (H/T Mark Knoller). And there are no plans to circle the Statue of Liberty.

I don't understand the RNC hate. The Obamas are a young couple and like to get OUT OF THE BUBBLE. They were not like the Bushs who practically went NO WHERE. And the country likes to see their president out and about with the missus.

Again, when you have no new ideas and running around in circles after your own tail, what else can you expect? Closing on a postive note, Al Rodgers pictures, enjoy!!
