The Obamas' night out

It was a campaign promise President Obama made to his wife.

From a White House statement on the President's date night with the First Lady: "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."

No sooner than date night was announced, the Republican National Committee sent out a statement of their own attacking the President for spending tax payer's money in hard economic times.

What are you thoughts? Was the President's date night a much needed break from the White House or a waste of money?
