'"I am disappointed at the hypocrisy shown by this Administration,".... "President Obama is coming to Las Vegas later this month for a political fundraiser, but he will not help the struggling families in Las Vegas and Nevada who are out of work because of his reckless comments." Governor Gibbons noted, "President Obama is coming to Las Vegas to raise campaign cash for Senator Harry Reid, apparently our money is good enough for the President, but our tourism, jobs, and economic future are not."...... "This is politics, pure and simple, President Obama stood for change, but all he has done is brought negative economic change to Nevada."'
That Obama is such a party pooper. O man, why did you have to go and diss the good people of Vegas? Didn't you know that they have families to feed like the rest of us? Apparently when you said this: "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 taxpayer's dime" in the most non Las Vegas of places, Elkhart, Indiana, you touched a nerve. And it seems that you caused over 400 organization to cancel their conventions and their trips to Sin City. Which, by the way, cost the good folks of Nevada over a hundred million dollars in revenue. (Or so they say) Now O man, if that's true, that is some serious cash.
How does it feel to have such power O man? No wonder the repubs are terrified of you. So all it took was a few words from you and over 400 groups canceled their planned conventions? Imagine that. And to think I thought it was the bad economy and tough times that we are facing which caused them to cancel. Nope, it was you and your O-mnipotent power.
Poor Tim Gibbons he is so mad at his O ness that he doesn't know what to do. He wants a meeting and the chosen one won't even give it to him. Even Oscar Goodman, (you gotta love a mayor named Oscar) the good Mayor of "Sin City" was getting into the mix, and was giving his O ness an earful about dissing his city.
But I will give it to his O ness, he sure knows how to pick his enemies. I am guessing that there aren't many people in the rest of the country who are crying a tear for the folks in Vegas right about now. I know that there are lots of girlfriends and wives saying serve them right. "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? Well what if nothing happens in Vegas, how do you like them apples?"
Ahhh "The City of Lights". Hey, isn't that where they shot Tupac?
