President Barack Obama is setting the record straight — he loves Las Vegas. Obama has irked officials in Nevada with his references to Las Vegas while explaining how people need to make tough choices on spending during difficult economic times. During a speech to the city's Chamber of Commerce Friday, Obama made it clear that he meant Las Vegas no harm. Still, he defended his recent comments, in which he said that people who are saving for college shouldn't blow a bunch of cash in Vegas. He says that remains true — college savings should be spent on college — but he still loves the town. But some officials still have hard feelings. Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman declined invitations to greet Obama and attend his public events there Friday.

“I love Vegas”?? That’s how he tries to get back into their good graces??? How incredibly banal.

What I resent is that the news outlets are forcing his naked vote-buying on us every half-hour, as if it meant something intelligible or respectable.

Yeah; that’s like the guy who gets caught cheating on his wife saying: “But,I love you...”. Strange way of showing it.

Well.. I suppose he is thinking that it’s alright for Him to blow money in Vegas... just not the little people.

More precisely, he's a "ho and long-legged mack daddy" at the same time.

So he decides in his "apology" to double down and repeat the comment that enraged Las Vegas.

Will the fiction about how smart Hussein is ever end?

0 was also dumb enough to say something bad about Vegas a second time after he had already trashed their local economy once and been called on it. I am glad that the mayor would not legitimize his sham apology by being there to hear it.

Didn’t the president visit Savannah this week, too? The first thing I think of when I think of Obama and Savannah is the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and the cross dresser character. Obama follows that trip with a trip to Vegas which makes me think of more cross dressers and Muslims visiting strip clubs prior to blowing up tall buildings.
