This morning I wrote that the Obama Date Night certainly cost taxpayers more than $75,000, and the Washington Times crunches the numbers and agrees.

Remember, joyriding Air Force One around for a few hours over Manhattan a couple months ago cost $250,000, so the cost of the weekend trip was likely not likely that low.

Read the detailed breakdown at the link. I bet the date cost us at least $3 million.

There was, of course, an ironic element of the trip. In February, Obama scolded corporate executives (while also costing Las Vegas some $130 million) when he said: "You can't get corporate jets. You can't go take a trip to Las Vegas, or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers' dime."
