Remember those admonishments against the auto maker CEO's for flying private jets to DC to ask for taxpayer bailout money? After Richard Wagoner of GM did that, he got fired. By Obama.

Now, Obama is using taxpayer money to....you guessed it....fly in a private jet, to take his wife to a Broadway show. Sure, it was cute. Sure, he has the right to take his wife out. Sure, it was a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of the cash we're burning through right now. But during a recession, what's wrong with a night out in DC?
