Am I the only one that thinks this guy using U.S. tax payers money to fly a plane to NYC, fund a security detail and all the advance work that it requires just to see a play , go out to dinner and act like a big shot is so out of line that it's border line crazy? With the economy in the crapper, unemployment on the rise, two ground wars going on and two major U.S. car in bankruptcy this guy is blowing money on a date night. This guy thinks that tax payers funds are his to blow anyway he wants and the brain dead american press seem to glorify it, promote it and even think we owe it to him. I don't know what this guy has on somebody or what leverage he is using but it must be pretty bad to be able to run all this crap by the American public. All I can do is shake my head and think of that Merle Haggard song " Are the Good times Really Over For Good"
