On the Tuesday broadcast of the nightly Nevada political program "Ralston Reports," Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts sat down with host Jon Ralston to discuss the presidential election.
Wynn, an outspoken critic of President Obama, didn't hold back in his latest criticism of the incumbent president seeking a second term.
"I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I'm a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don't like having a bull's-eye painted on our back," Wynn said about Obama to Ralston. An excerpt of the interview is below.

Steve Wynn: The man with the voice of The Most Interesting Man in the World.
Stay thirsty, my friends.
Maybe all those casino workers will think twice before voting for obama. Because they will be voting themselves out of a job. If obama wins no one will be afford to go to Las Vegas.
I think I’ve seen 2 Obama bumper stickers in about as many years here. It’s nothing like 2008. His comments about Las Vegas had a huge economic impact here. We’re not feeling the love.
Lot’s of business owners feel the same way.
This is an amazing video. It proves something I have always said. And that is. What do most people call a billionaire? Boss! Because all billionaires hire thousands of everyday people and pay them a decent wage. Why can’t Barack and his liberal followers figure this out. Thank god for Billionaires I want to be one too.
Yes this is an amazing video.
This is the kind of man you want on your side.
on a side note it sounds like the guys who bought the Frontier got hosed.
that whole area of the strip is now a wasteland with the Wynn bordering it.
I’m sure Steve would love to see it built up.
Not gonna happen with this Howdy Doody in office.....
I should add that the Wynn part starts about five minutes into the video (note the RCP video counts down how many minutes are left)
I went to the Ralston Report website and apparently the full second part will be released tonight (10/10) thus the linked video is just a teaser, if you will.
Things are very interesting here in Southern Nevada. Though I live in Utah I volunteer down in Vegas for Mitt. Steve Wynn and Sheldon Adelson are both very well respected in this community and by the employees. Their employees seem grateful to work for these guys. Sheldon Adelson treats his employees so well his casinos are non-unionized. I am not sure that the SEIU bus will be loading up employees behind Mr. Wynn’s casino like they did in 2008 and I know it won’t happen behind the Venetian/Palazzo complex. The other thing people do not understand in Vegas is the number of registered voters who have completely moved away or lost their home. At least 25% of the voter rolls are wrong, from what I have seen, knocking doors. That information does not show up in the polls.
WYNN: I’ve created about 250,000 direct and indirect jobs according to the state of Nevada’s measurement. If the number is 250,000, that’s exactly 250,000 more than this president, who I’ll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I’m a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don’t like having a bulls-eye painted on our back.
The president is trying to put himself between me and my employees. By class warfare, by deprecating and calling a group that makes money ‘billionaires and millionaires who don’t pay their share.’ I gave 120% of my salary and bonus away last year to charities, as I do most years. I can’t stand the idea of being demagogued, that is put down by a president who has never created any jobs and who doesn’t even understand how the economy works.
I’m loving the way Steve Wynn (my fellow JewBoy) is sticking it to Obama. And how about that Sheldon Adelson contributing tens of millions to Romney and Newt? Money talks and bs walks!
I saw one last night on the way home from work, and two more cars with Obama 2012 stickers last week. None of the stickers had Biden's name on them as in 2008.
I always look over at the person driving the car to see what vexes their soul into supporting lies, racism, Marxism, homosexuality, baby killing, injustice, covetousness, theft, deception, idol worship, sloth, and envy.
Two of the three drivers were African-American, and one was an older white guy with all sorts of atheistic and anti-God bumper stickers on his car as well. I thought to myself each time "Well, they sure are fitting the Obama voter demographic."
This wasn't the guy's car, but it looks like it has similar magnets and bumper stickers to the one I saw last week. You get the idea.............
I’m sure this person thinks he is very clever. An atheist lib Obama voting friend of mine also has one of those fish with feets on his car
