Thread: Obama's night out.

     
  1. #1

    Obama's night out.

    Not critizing just wondering if this is a normal. I think this is the first time I have heard about this sort of thing. Has anybody heard of this kind of thing in the past.
    It's kind of funny that they shut down city blocks just so they could go see a show.
    Mr and Mrs. Obama Headed to New York city to catch dinner and a show.

    hey there genius, I'm not making a big deal about it as I said I'm not critizing. This is just honestly the first time I have heard of a president doing something like this on a date. And was wondering if it is a normal thing.

    Lets get real, do you think that there were no tax dollars spent. Leaving from Andrews air force base, helicopter in new york. Secret service and transportation in New York city shutting down city blocks. And they used no tax money

    Yeah, I wouldn't say this is out of the ordinary...all Presidents have gone out for private reasons and I would be most get this kind of treatment.

    What kills me is the quotes from people who were there:

    “I thought I was dreaming”
    “There are no words for it”
    "Ah The Chosen One has graced us with his presence...do not dare gaze directly upon his face!"


    Ok, maybe I made that last one up...but it would have fit perfectly.

    I'd say the same thing, I know I've never met someone with that much power face to face. The closest I've come is George Carlin :)
