Las Vegas still fumes over 2-year-old Obama remark

*snip*

But some Nevada state officials and residents of this economically ravaged state have been fuming over comments they perceived as rants against the tourism industry since he first made them two years ago, and Republicans are hoping that fury will point voters in their direction.

The friction resurfaced as Obama visited a Las Vegas neighborhood Monday as part of a nationwide tour to sell his jobs plan. The stop came as Republican presidential candidates, business titans and former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman maintain that Obama has twice disparaged Las Vegas tourism - this Western swing state's largest employer.

*snip*

Nevada's unemployment remained steady at 13.4 percent last month.

"He said it more than once," said former Nevada Gov. Bob List, a national Republican committeeman. "You can't un-ring the bell. You have to live with what you say. It just shows a lack of understanding of the engine that drives the state."

Maybe true, maybe not. We’ll see next time Harry Reid stands for election.

More to come on Reid’s win but that will come in good time. For right now, my family, who voted for Dingy Harry now regret they did it. The local media was very adept at hiding his record in DC but he will not even run again and may very well end up to regret he did this last time.

Well, Harry Reid just stood for election in 2010 and the thugs running the casinos backed him and told the casino employees that they had better go vote if they knew what was good for them. It would be the brave soul indeed who worked for the mob-run casinos and dared to vote for anyone other than whoever the mob was supporting. There is no such thing as a secret ballot in places like that. At least, a person would be a fool to believe otherwise.

"You can't un-ring the bell. You have to live with what you say..."

It's amazing how much this POS loves to hear himself talk even after so much has been documented lies, B.S., and abject idiocy. I'm starting to believe that his teleprompter is even more stupid than he is.

I don’t understand your post. Obviously I do listen to Rush. HE coined the phrase Dingy Harry.

Dingy Harry was coined by Rush. The funny thing about my family is that they have lots of friends in their culinary union circles and their turning is not an isolated case.

Talked to my mom today and she has quit the MSM and I have just introduced them to shock treatments of a Beck subscription. They are having a hard time with the last one, not in believing his video evidence but that they had never seen this stuff before.

We used to have heated arguments in the past.

Harry Reid just went through an election and did just fine. Nevada will support Obama, too.

List, the former Republican governor, said Republicans plan to remind voters at every opportunity that Obama slammed the industry that influences the livelihoods of most Nevadans.
"A lot of people out of work won't forget it any time soon," List said.

GOOD!

My hubby, Prince, has worked as a waiter part time for extra money all through our 30+ year marriage. It has literally saved our family from living in our car in bad times, and helped us save money to improve our situation in good times. Comments like Zero’s can have a devastating effect on people’s livelihoods, but he couldn’t care less.

I'm sad to hear that Prince is waiting tables for extra money.

That whole "The Artist" period was obviously a worse fiasco than I thought.

No secret ballot? That's really bad.

In my estimation, yes. They will vote for the man who promises them something over the man who will encourage them to be self determined. Odd state, Nevada. It a right to work state that is controlled largely by unions that have become powerful in the casino and hospitality industries. They take their orders from the purple shirts.

The wife and I were in Las Vegas last year. To beat the terrific heat we walked through a number of casinos. I noticed quite a few dealers standing with their hands behind their backs in front of empty tables. I wonder if those dealers and other casino employees still have jobs and who they’ll be voting for next year.
