RNC slams Obama for romantic date with Michelle in New York
Sure, it's one of the worst songs ever written. But perhaps President Obama and First Lady Michelle are closet Air Supply fans and are simply "Keeping the Love Alive" by enjoying a date-night in New York City tonight.Skip to next paragraph

As we told you earlier, the Obamas are spending a presumably romantic evening together with dinner and a Broadway show this evening in the Big Apple.
"As President Obama prepares to wing into Manhattan's theater district on Air Force One to take in a Broadway show, GM is preparing to file bankruptcy and families across America continue to struggle to pay their bills," RNC spokeswoman Gail Gitcho said in an email this afternoon.
That's not all from Gitcho. She then added a snitty, "Have a great Saturday evening — even if you're not jetting off somewhere at taxpayer expense."
Well, you can say the Obamas are at least trying to keep the costs down. They downsized the transportation opting not to take the normal Air Force One 747.
It's not like they took the $10 Fung Wah Bus either though. They just hopped on a smaller plane. Although it is still called Air Force One, it's just part of the fleet.
It looks like they're ready to hit the town too. Reports are that they're all snazzed up. According to the Associated Press, Michelle "...wore her hair up, heels and a sleeveless black ruffled dress that fell below the knee while he went tieless in a dark suit and white shirt."
No details yet on the restaurant of choice. Although we are surmising that's it's a notch up from the hamburger stand the president visited yesterday (nothing against hamburger stands).
