Here's the quote:
"You don't blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you're trying to save for college."
Exactly why does this ****kicker mayor have a problem with his statement? Or any other partisan hack-tard for that matter?
I'm not sure when the good time is to "Blow" money/savings in vegas. Most adults know what President Obama meant. But far-right hacks aren't above moronic spins; any opportunity to turn a reasonable statement into a negative, they jump on it.
You can visit Vegas, but don't be an idiot about it. Don't gamble with money that you can't afford to lose. Would this mayor have people bringing their kid's college money to the tables?
File this story under: "Shut Your Piehole Mr. Mayor"
"We’re going to do something to strengthen the banking system," Mr. Obama said in a townhall event in Elkhart, Ind. "You are not going to be able to give out these big bonuses until you pay taxpayers back. 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. There's got to be some accountability and some responsibility."
So you disagree? Taxpayers should foot the bill for their conventions?
In fairness to the CEO's--they work hard lobbying for bailouts. At the end of the day, they're entitled to all the limos, hookers, and shrimp cocktails they can purchase with tax-payer money.
Shame on President Obama for suggesting that tax-payer money not be used for gambling. I mean, that's why they needed the bailouts in the first place, they were gambling with other people's money.
