    Thumbs up Las Vegas Mayor Goodman rejects Obama invitation

    Las Vegas Mayor Goodman rejects Obama invitation - KTNV ABC,Channel 13,Las Vegas,Nevada,News,Weather,Sports,Entertainment,KTN V.com,Action News .:.

    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.

    Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) - Mayor Oscar Goodman has refused an invitation to meet with President Obama when he arrives in town on Thursday. Mayor Goodman called President Obama a slow learner after he told Americans not to blow money on a weekend in Las Vegas if they were saving to put their kids through college.

    "I've got other things to do quite frankly for my constituents here in Las Vegas who rely on me to do the right thing as a mayor," explained Mayor Goodman.

    Mayor Goodman has more important things like attend budget meetings during a major shortfall than meet with President Barack Obama when he visits Las Vegas Friday. That rejection comes even though he's invited by the White House.

    "Were you surprised to get that invitation in light of comments you've made before and your opinion on him and what he says," asked Action News reporter Heather Klein.

    "A little bit in the sense I would think they would know that I would say I'm not coming," said Mayor Goodman.

    I like Obama, but it sounds like the mayor is doing his job. Obama said something that could potentially hurt LV's local economics and the mayor is working on what his constituents want, which is to promote and prosper the city.

    He racist.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Obama's Vegas-bashing comments last year, cost the state more than $500 million in lost tourism and gambling revenue, and thousands of jobs.

    The office need to be respected but the liar in it.

    Got a link to that? I am having trouble believing the words of a president have that much influence.

    Obama fails to say "I'm sorry" to Nevada for bashing Vegas a second time


    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;
    Protestors Greet the President in Las Vegas

    Protestors Greet the President in Las Vegas - Political Punch

    "What happened when he made that statement and because of the power of his words, Las Vegas lost four hundred conventions and business meetings," Gov. Gibbons said. "One hundred million dollar loss to the economy of Las Vegas. Now don't you think that it's high time that we try to do things to stimulate the economy instead of crushing the economy with your words."
