This Is The Vegas Resort Where Obama Will Spend The Next 3 Days Preparing For the Debate
businessinsider.com ^ | 10/1/12 | ace Wyler

Posted on 10/01/2012 8:27:00 AM PDT by Justaham

President Barack Obama arrived in Nevada last night to begin three days of debate preparation at the Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort, a luxurious golf community just a few miles from the Las Vegas strip.

According to the White House pool report, the "resort is a strange mix of desert sand pits, green lawns, palm trees and new homes. We passed a replica of the Ponte Vecchio and some luxurious lakeside estates, also unfinished lots and a browning golf course. The president's hotel has a Middle Eastern theme and a view of the lake from the lobby."

He should be “prepping” his cell for inspection by the warden.

“You can’t go take a trip to Las Vegas...” and “You don’t blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you’re trying to save for college.”

I was planning on going to the grocery store today. Just..damn.

Let Obama golf, party and goof off all he wants through Wednesday evening.

My guess is that he has postponed practicing for days and weeks, because he is lazy and arrogant.

Hopefully it will show without TOTUS on Wed evening.

He chastised CEO types in ‘09, saying they couldn’t be going to Las Vegas all the time. He has been there more than anyone in the past 3 years.

“hotel has a Middle Eastern theme”

To make the Muslim community organizer feel right at home and amongst friends?

What’s with Obama and Vegas? That was where he went (to raise campaign bucks) the morning after our ambassador was assassinated.

Does he have a secret sugar daddy there? Probably also “Middle Eastern themed”?

When preparing for something like a debate, it's important to be in the surroundings that make you most comfortable.

LOL!!! Maybe that was the reason for the mysterious construction vault/bunker recently completed near the white house.

The Middle Eastern theme was to make him feel at home.

"Security needs" will dictate that his entourage takes over the whole five-star facility for the duration.

Meanwhile, Nellis Air Force Base sits right on the outskirts of Las Vegas, and would have provided highly secure facilities for the Prez to stay at, at hugely less cost. I guess it just wasn't posh enough.

It’s a golf resort. He’s playing because I hear he’s already won the debate.

Is it a co-ink-a-dink that the resort has a *middle eastern* theme?

Nor have I ever been to the Middle East, thank God.

The man’s brass never ceases to amaze me. Right before election he baldly hangs out in a Middle Eastern themed hotel. Is there nothing this man can do and get away with?
