Here we have the Washington Times guess of $250,000.00
In another odd twist left unexamined by the media, the White House on Monday said it simply would not release the cost of President Obama's weekend jaunt to New York City, where the First Couple had dinner and caught a Broadway show.
Spokesman Robert Gibbs, keeping the White House press corps in stiches, as he always does, said the Obamas would have preferred using a commercial airline shuttle to New York and back, but the Secret Service would not allow such unprotected travel (ba da bing).
And that was that. No further probing; asked and answered; time to move on.

One thing is known — The Obamas picked up the cost of dinner costs and their orchestra seat tickets, which cost $96.50 a piece. So if the whole thing cost $250,000, the Obamas offset that by at least a few hundred bucks. Phew.
The New York Post didn't have a clue but they were trying when they wrote this:
Taxpayers footed the bill for the big night on the town, which included a total of at least $24,000 for the three aircraft used to ferry the Obamas, aides and reporters to New York and back. ...read the full story hereEven some bloggers thought they had it figured out...

Note from Norm: I say we should dock Obama's pay for the remainder of his time in Washington...and extend that out into his retirement years until at least the million dollars is recovered...or better yet, when his wallet is empty forever!
Let's be clear. The commission of an actual felony is not actually required in order to impeach a sitting President, butif Sestak's allegation is true... and if Barack Hussein Obama's fingerprints are all over this offer... THAT'S A FELONY... and drawing up Articles of Impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama becomes a NECESSITY.
According to Judge Andrew Napolitano with FOX News: "Federal law makes it a felony to offer 'anything of value' to an official of the government in return for a decision in your favor by that official of the government; it is called bribery."
