Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts, trashed President Obama on a company conference call today. Below are the most damning portions of the call:
I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But I'm afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States.

Hammer meet nail.
“... and until he’s gone, everybody’s gonna be sittin’ on their thumbs.”
Glad to hear him speaking the truth. Didn’t he vote for him? When any business person voted for Obama I just rolled my eyes. I bet he won’t be so stupid next time. HA! Of course he isn’t minding Immelt’s directed to buck up and shut up. Immelt is a fascist pig that has materially benefitted in a multitude of ways. May he one day get all he richly deserves back at him.
Yep and yep! :-)
Financially, I am doing great. I love the Obama economy (when I look at my bottom line). I'm making more money than I ever have. I don't mind working and making some OT (though it is approaching more than I want to). But I am not mad at my employer for me running my tail off. If I was in the shoes of the senior leadership of my company, why would I hire more people? I have no idea what an employee is going to cost me long term. It is easier to run the tails off existing employees.
Of course, the quality of our product will eventually suffer if the work load continues as it is--hurting our wonderful customers. Really its too bad. Instead of everybody on my team working boocoo OT and making the big bucks, another couple people could be hired off the unemployment line, and everybody would be a lot happier. But again, I can't blame our senior leadership for failing to approve additional help.
wynn voted for comrade obama.
LOL. Oh well. They really don't get it, but hey he at least sees the gun to his head and he is saying something. These Democrats are the brightest bulbs in the room are they? I wised up as a business woman real fast about what sort of policies were good for me, my taxes, my opportunities, and my freedom. It sure wasn't the Democrats. These people have no idea that it is and was their ideals that led them to Barack Obama. Exactly what THEY voted for. Many of these people have no idea just how naive they truly are. I am being generous with the use of the word naive here.
We told them to be scared to be very, very afraid of this man and they called us RACISTS. Now whose scared?
This guy can't identify his enemies. Maybe he's a great casino promoter, but he's dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to that coherent world view thingy.
It won’t change without growth.
Fascinating conversation to be able to listen in on.
Yes, September will be our fifth anniversary in the People’s Republic of China in Macau and we love it there. We are so grateful to be part of that market and to be allowed to participate in that community.
We find the political environment, the regulatory environment, the human resource environment that we are in to be absolutely delicious. Life is quite straightforward in China. The government is predictable.
Our employees are eminently trainable. They’re anxious to please. They have a fabulous attitude, whether they’re local Macau people, mainland Chinese people, folks from the Philippines, they’re just wonderful and all of that’s come together to help us deliver the kind of product that we’ve always been delivering.
And then #2, in Vegas, especially as I hear Marilyn talk about, a month like October for example, that there’s not an inch of meeting square footage left in Las Vegas and as we think about limited or no supply over the next several years, being added back to Las Vegas, does it not make sense to expand your meeting square footage? I know you can do it east of country club or in that area?
Well, here’s our problem. There are a host of opportunities for expansion in Las Vegas, a host of opportunities to create tens of thousands of jobs in Las Vegas.
I know that I could do 10,000 more myself and according to the Chamber of Commerce and the visitors convention bureau, if we hired 10,000 employees, it would create another 20,000 additional jobs for a grand total of 30,000.
I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But I’m afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States. You watch television and see what’s going on on this debt ceiling issue.
And what I consider to be a total lack of leadership from the President and nothing’s going to get fixed until the President himself steps up and wrangles both parties in Congress.
But everybody is so political, so focused on holding their job for the next year that the discussion in Washington is nauseating. And I’m saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime.
Steve Wynn supports Harry Reid, the senate majority leader thug who pushed through Obamacare on Christmas Eve. I can still see them wheeling a half-dead, incoherent Robert Byrd from the home to cast that vote. Maybe getting all that union vote and God knows how many corrupt buds of yours out to ensure Reid’s ‘victory’ in November is part of the problem, hey Steve? Obama has no stronger promoter and master thug than Reid. We’ll have to see if Steve got his Obamacare exemption...
Well you won’t see this on the yahoo mainpage (AP).
Zero’s raising a lot of money — all the Hell-ywood Hacks who participate(d) in his fundraisers should be pilloried for it, here and via boycotts, and the occasional piss-filled balloon projectile when they’re on their ridiculous red carpet promenades.
typical limousine liberal.
He and Warren Buffet and all the other pathetic quisling enablers should watch this... for a quick run down start at about 3:45.. the entire series will make your skin crawl . In the 9th section go to the :40 second and just watch the rest of it.
we are in the final stage with the economy, military and foreign relations being trashed by the TOFUS. Now we just need a "crisis" for normalization to occur. The only joy I'll get is when the libs are put up against the wall while they try to explain how "we're on your side!!!" "We love our government doing everything for us"
>> wynn voted for comrade obama.
He admitted to the vote apparently influenced by his wife. I’m not sure what the vote was for however.
From your excerpt:
“You watch television and see whats going on ...”
That could be the problem right there. Someone needs to tell Wynn he’s wasting his time.
My favorite Wynn lines:
“And I’m saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime.”
“The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don’t invest, their holding too much money. We haven’t heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists.”
” And I’m telling you that the business community in this company is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States.”
“wynn voted for comrade obama.”
Wynn was on a recent Luntz focus group in a Hannity special where they had a series of politicians speak briefly and answer questions from the audience. Steve Wynn was also on and spoke very well about how bad Obama is for the country. He said he’d voted for him - then proceeded to (rightfully) blast him and make lots of good points. The focus group, made up of all demographics, liked what he had to say because it was honest and made sense.
is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States.
Truer words ..
Luntz panel interview
A year ago, he expressed his negative opinions here
And here last August
Here in 2009
I was gonna give a “HOORAY Steve Wynn” but if he supports Harry POS Reid...well...I’ll leave it at that.
On 2nd thought...
It was idiots like STEVE WYNN who bought in to the media HYPE of Obama, and supported him, and who ignored what Obama actually SAID, that are responsible for this mess.
It’s not like Obama didn’t TELL anyone who was listening what he intended to do.
Wynn voted for Obama thinking that he (Wynn) would get the taxpayers to pick up his employee health costs and that being in Reid’s district would get him special perks.
Now he has discovered that destroying the U.S. economy turns out to be bad for him as well.
thanks STARWISE, additional:
and there it is...
Can someone please photoshop the above to read
"FAIL AT ALL THINGS" ?
Joe, looks like you have an assignment, if you agree to take it (the tape won’t self-destruct ... ;)
...but the politician apparently is. (Go Sarah!)
It’s nice to see a supporter of Obama’s party take notice.
Yep. Yo picked the good ones. And this from the mouth of a man who voted for the commie.
Think it'd make a good T-shirt? I guess all we'd have to do is photoshop the last "e" in Newsweek to make it "Newsweak" and change the helicopter and the bird to avoid copyright problems...?
“It was idiots like STEVE WYNN who bought in to the media HYPE of Obama, and supported him, and who ignored what Obama actually SAID, that are responsible for this mess.
Its not like Obama didnt TELL anyone who was listening what he intended to do.”
The ONLY reason any businessman would vote Democrat is that he is looking for a government provided inside track, cheating his potential competition.
Wynn just didn’t get the anticipated goodies he wanted from Obama, and in the future (and with his “wife’s influence”), I’ll bet he votes for every Communist hacked up from the phlegm in the diseased lungs of the Democrat Party.
(enough is enough, impeach obama!!!)
Thanks for those links!
I consider myself a staunch conservative both socially and fiscally yet I voted for the democrat Jim Florio in 1993 against Christy Whitman in the governor’s race. The only democrat I ever voted for and he lost! Does that make me a bad guy? I have nightmares often about this.
Things are really bad when you lose the mafia vote.
Top be fair, he is blind and couldn’t see what was before him....
Bully for Steve Wynn, I guess this means he’s not in Dick Obama’s stable of crony capitalists.
Buyer's remorse from a crony capitalist - priceless!
