Obamas' Date Night in New York City Draws Criticism

Ok, let's get our heads wrapped around this one and break it down.

From Fox News:

His public schedule listed no official events, so President Obama had plenty of time to devote to being a weekend dad and spouse.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama watched daughter Malia's soccer game for an hour Saturday morning in the Palisades neighborhood, a short drive from the White House.

For the evening, the first couple jetted to New York City for date night. A Broadway show and probably dinner were on tap.

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


I can just hear everyone screaming, libs and moderates alike. What is wrong with you? Doesn't he and his family deserve a break and to have some fun. Yes, yes they do. But not at the expense of the public. When past president's wanted a break, they either went back home, yes they all have homes. The White House is only temporary. Or they went to Camp David. Do you all remember what Camp David is? Do ya'all remember what Camp David was created for. Not what it's used for now, but it's original intent.

From Wikipedia:

Naval Support Facility Thurmont, popularly known as Camp David, is a mountain based military camp in Frederick County, Maryland used as a country retreat and for high alert protection of the President of the United States and his guests.

First known as Hi-Catoctin, Camp David was originally built as a camp for federal government agents and their families, by the WPA, starting in 1935, opening in 1938.[1] In 1942 it was converted to a presidential retreat by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and renamed U.S.S. Shangri-La. Camp David received its present name from Dwight Eisenhower, in honor of his grandson, Dwight David Eisenhower II


It is a retreat people! For the President. Alright, three deep breaths.
No other sitting President has ever gone to these lengths to "have a good time". Between all the parties he and his wife have thrown, the time Not spent at the White House, and now this, I can proudly say, I did Not Vote for the superficial, narcicist that is my President.

If my readers can find an example of a 20th century President behaving this way, please comment. This is an example of "city mouse" meets "country mouse", unfortunately we elected a spoiled brat "city mouse" into the highest office in the land. Oh and by the by the last "city mouse" President we elected built Camp David. AAAAAAGHHHHH!!!
