    So...President Obama is now a James Bond villain with a master plan???

    I swear, Beck is dumbing down the far-right fringe in ways we couldn't have imagined...

    Re: Las Vegas Mayor Goodman rejects Obama invitation

    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?

    It's in the 4th paragraph had you been watching Fox News and the Obamedia told the truth you would known this.

    From March 2009;
    Here is Obama's quote from that article:

    "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.

    Way to go Oscar. Well it's nice to see someone say no to Obama. So much for his magic. We can only hope it spreads as people are waking up to his shenanigans and lies.
    Obama was right, blowing money in Las Vegas is a stupid and intemperate thing to do. Las Vegas was founded and built on excess and debauchery, and has ruined the finances and morals of many people.

    maybe, maybe not

    but if you SAY it, don't expect to do too well electorally in its environs

    what's the GAIN from saying it?

    stupid politics, no payback

    ask hassled harry

    ask his son

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2010 - Nevada Governor - Sandoval vs. Reid

    tough times in the silver state for the ALLIES OF OBAMA

    another red PICKUP---how exciting!

    Oscar Goodman is a man of integrity and not star struck by the President.

    I applaud him for taking care of the citys business instead of dropping everything for Obama.
    This boy is acting like a spoiled disrespectful child..
    All most mayors do is politick and sign what their secretary tells them to..
