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.
