Reid said the policy came from the Bush administration. Holding nearly 50 pages of e-mails and memos, Reid explained.

It makes perfectly good sense that the Bush administration would've cautioned government agencies to hold their necessary meetings in Alexandria, rather than Las Vegas.
It's the same thing any good manager would've done if he found his P&L sliding.
But Zero is the one who came forth and publicly intimidated private sector companies from going to Las Vegas, specifically.
So, who was it that was being responsible? And who was it that was not?
Dunno if it will do any good.. but after posting that link here... I sent the same link to Chan5 in Vegas.. saying.. Am I going to have to do your work for you too?? They not going to be happy, either ... LOL
As for Dingy Harry... make my day.
From this article Nevada Governor Slams Obama's Refusal to Meet With Him ***"I'm shocked the president would make a remark like that and then do nothing, including meeting with the governor in an attempt to repair the damage that his remarks caused," Gibbons told FOX News' Neil Cavuto Tuesday.
In a statement Gibbons put out Monday, the governor said Obama's quote that "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" was seen by many as an insult to Las Vegas and as a message to companies across the nation to stay away from Las Vegas for corporate meetings and conventions.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority reports over 400 conventions and business meetings scheduled to take place in Las Vegas recently have cancelled, translating into 111,800 guests and 250,000 "room-nights," according to a statement from Gibbons. The cancelled events cost the Las Vegas economy over $100 million, not including gaming revenue, the governor said.
"I am disappointed at the hypocrisy shown by this administration," Gibbons said. "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. ***
The farm rental was another slap in the face to American farmers. California farmers being denied water because of a minnow fish now they’re saying due to drought conditions.
We’ve been here before Klamath Falls and sucker fish.
Meida cycles were 10x longer in the 1930s. As long as W keeps his mouth shut, the ‘blame Bush’ argument won’t resonate with anyone except certifiable moonbats in 2010.
Thanks for the links. And we’re working to not let him get away with it. And hopefully his son, Rory, wont be elected for governor.
It might have been Bush’s policy.
Yes and unless rescended by Obama some people should have
been punished over it.
I think this calls for an INVESTIGATION!!!
Just wait until the moonbats parents lose their job and have to take the internet away from the basement.
Not only a whiner he’s becoming desperate too. I guess he forgot Obama’s public statements. Harry could be about to lose his majority title.
“How many people really believe this?”
I don’t know the number, but there are those who say Obama hasn’t been in there long enough to have really made a difference. I ask where the heck have they been because he’s been very busy “changing” America.
Keep blaming Bush you useless scums, it’s doing wonders for you in the polls.
-- Send Harry back to Searchlight
-- Bring home Searchlight's idiot

and (my personal favorite)
First, Daschle -- next, Reid.
I’ll get me one of those. Vegas is so liberal. I hope this has been a wake up call for many. It was a foregone conclusion that Vegas would deliver for the democrats. I hope that ain’t so now.
Are you going to believe Harry Reid , or your lying eyes & ears.
Harry’s gotta be shi++in’ bricks about the upcoming elections!
**I hope this has been a wake up call for many.**
Dunno anything about Nevada Politics, but that Channel 5 in Las Vegas got a copy of Obama talking about Vegas conventions.. So I RAISE Dingy Harry’s Memos with on Horse’s Mouth ( wanted to say .. well ..umm nevermind). Can’t wait til tomorrow to see if I upset some applecarts or not.
** ...or your lying eyes & ears.**
they haven’t steered me wrong, yet...
Reid, however ...
