i heard this from my mom but is it true? obama question

i heard he went to the theater to see a show and it cost us tax payers 6 million $. you know for security etc. if this is true does this seem like a sacrifice that maybe he could of taken until he was out of office? after all our country is suffering. i hope he didn't do this and if he did how do obama supporters feel about this? i feel sick just wondering if it's true. same with the photo he got in the plane that cost millions.

  • President Bush was no where in the same arena as Obama.....Obama has his face plastered all over the place and the media is at his beckon call.....

  • Obama is not just a president he is a human being. Being president gives him allot of perks inwhich is normal. All other presidents traveled and went places. People have to realize that this man took on allot of trouble that came before his term and now he is playing mister fixer upper. Obama is not God and people are searching for all these fixes that no man but only God can fix. We need to start putting our burdens on this me we are a country that needs to first start fixing ourselves and our children if we expect things to get better. the economy is sobad yet people are still spending hundreds of dollars on wants and not neccessities. We are still spending money on high priced plane tickets, concerts, travel, and hobbies.

  • it did NOT cost $ 6 million dollars. Every president has security that follows them everywhere, they are told what is the safest way to travel by the secret service and they follow suit.


    Did your dear old mom question why GWB spent 1/3 of his presidency on vacation? and how much it cost when he spent 6 weeks in Crawford TX during two wars and still had to be briefed daily and an office set up for him there??? I'm guessing she didn't give a flying fig newton then, so why now??

  • Obama going to the movie theater, Bob Evans, basket ball games, open in public dates with his wifey poo are nothing more than publicity stunts......because the cameras are always watching.......and yeah he is so busy......I wonder where he gets all that energy and gets all that stuff done.....security for this man its self should bankrupt America in the next couple of years....

  • If he were not elected president, he would not need all the security and extra stuff. Noone seemed to care when Bush did the same, so what's the problem?

  • If it did cost $6million, wouldn't it be cheaper to put a theater in the White House and show him whatever movie he wanted to see there? I doubt it cost that much, though. Just rumors.

  • don't you think it could be because the are different people not because its a pubilcty stunt...Bush liked to spend time on his ranch with his family he was older....Obama likes to take his wife on dates I would love it if my dh would do that!!! I mean really why does it have to be because of the cameras? Just because he is president he can't go to a basketball game or to a broadway show?? really? and it didn't cost 6 million dollars he paid $200.00 a piece to see the show and then dinner and the trip there.

  • The tax payers are paying for that ticket and some people would put that $200 toward some groceries......America is in a recession...remember....where does Obama take any financial responsibility...instead of living the high life in front of the media circus? Oh yeah....its Obama.
