    Bravo! for the Obama's, those with scrutiny need to get a life. Everybody needs some down time......I am proud they are keeping the marriage strong and intact!

    I think the President and First Ladies night out in New York City using a smaller aircraft is perfectly fine. Washington D.C. to New York is not that far. How often did we hear about our previous President using the big 747 Air Force One heading to the "Western White House" to chop wood.

    Gops are a gang of jealous. Who care of what they say. This President by the way did more in 5 months than the CEO of GM in many years....
    Both Obama's deserved a break once on a while, after all they are human being..

    I hope the Obama's had a wonderful date. They deserve a weekend to relax and enjoy each others company. After all he has done more good for this country in his short time in office than the previous administration did in eight long years. And I don't mind paying for it!

    Don Lemon "security Expert" Mike Brooks says that the shooting of an off duty black cop was not a racial incident, rather a blue on blue "accident". Your "Expert" should look at the last 28 NY incident of cop shooting cop, you would find that in each of the cases, white cops mistake black cops for criminals. If the statistics were reverse, I bet the police department would address this situitation.

    Pres. O & FLOTHUS make you wonder why the last 2 residents of that address never behaved like real couples. "It takes work to make it work"

    Houston, Dr. Oz : I was wondering after watching this report about the Dr. Oz free clinic in Houston, "Is there any doubt that this country needs healthcare for ALL AMERICANS"? Are the law makers in Washington watching this? Thanks to Dr. Oz people in Houston are getting much needed relief today. My husband lost his job last Oct. "08 and we have been on Cobra since. We have had health insurance for 59 years and here we are approching our golden years with a health care threat. I ask the Senators "Is this the America that is a leader in the world"? OR "Have we become the greediest country on earth that denies it people the basic healthcare"? I am watching the lines form in Houston and realize this is only 1 city in 1 state - what about the other 50 states? We all need affordable healthcare. Our Cobra payments are $1,100 a month. Pass healthcare NOW.
