I am genuinely infatuated with the Obamas. To me, they symbolize glamour, style and sophistication…a la John and Jackie Kennedy. They are both so eloquent, tall and attractive. During Barack Obama’s campaign for President, he promised Michelle that he would take her to a Broadway show when it was all over. He made good on his promise on their most recent “date night”…
“I am taking my wife to New York City because I promised her during the campaign that I would take her to a Broadway show after it was all finished,” the president said in a statement an aide read to the press.
After dining a little more than two hours at Blue Hill, a West Village restaurant touted by New York magazine as a “seminal Greenmarket haven” that features food grown by chef and owner Dan Barber on his upstate farm, the president and first lady headed to the Belasco Theater to make curtain call for “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.”
Sigh… how romantic.
Apparently, the Republican National Committee doesn’t share my sentiment. They issued a “news release that chastised Obama for saying he understands American’s troubles, but then hopping up to New York for a night on the town.”
Wait. Aren’t the RNC responsible for wasting $150,000 on Sarah Palin’s wardrobe? Whatever…
What about you? How important do you think a “date night” is? Do you have one? What does it include? Is it a regular thing?
