I assume he'll be playing "the Perot" to pull Tea Party votes from the Republican nominee.

I doubt it when very rich guys run; they have to turn their businesses over to someone else if they win - - I can’t see them doing that.

Billionaire Steve Wynn is a resort casino and real estate developer like Trump.

Doubt it. He just received dual citizenship to Monaco for a joint venture in building a hotel there.

Don't doubt it. Just look at the vote in NY-26th last month. A man who ran on the Dem ticket 3 times previous signed up as the "tea-party" candidate, running on the "I'm angry with both parties!" platform. It took months to educate voters that his candidacy was a fraud - but the 8% that he pulled was enough to give what should have easily been a Republican seat to a Democrat - who didn't even live in the district!!!

If he ran as a GOP candidate, I would consider him strongly. We can’t deal with 3rd parties this time around.

Ohhhh THAT Steve Wynn. The one who moved his gambling operation headquarters out of Vegas to his newly built Wynn casinos in Singapore. Or was it Shanghai.

Wynn was thinking of moving his headquarters from Las Vegas to Macau, a formerly Portuguese colony on the coast of China which re-verted back to China in recent years.

Macau has many mega-hotels and casinos, similar to Las Vegas.

If Wynn is running for president as an independent, then I’m shocked, and I don’t get shocked easily.

“In April 2010, Wynn caused a stir when he chided the government on CNBC and said he was considering moving the company’s global headquarters from Las Vegas to Macau.”

Traitor.

No thanks.

I see his resume includes voting for and donating to Odumbo. That might help rank him down there with Al Gore’s campaign manager Perry.

You may want to look a little beyond their PR clippings before committing to that opinion of their business acumen.

Wynn was angry at Obama for saying that there shouldn't be corporate events in Vegas, and he used what leverage he had.

Obama is the traitor for telling people not to go to a US city for business conferences.

I assume he'll be playing "the Perot" to pull Tea Party votes from the Republican nominee.

Let's see.. There's no Republican president who back-stabbed the base and raised taxes, nor a senator who somehow lost every ounce of their personality during a campaign and gave the impression that he 'deserved' it.

At a guess, I'd say that this would be more the excuse for the Republican party to go all liberal again (colloquially known as 'Running to the center') and ignore the opinions of a huge block of voters to pander to a group that wouldn't ever vote for a conservative, much less a liberal wearing a (R) after their name.

I predict, if he does run, and does get any traction, it'll be because he's busy talking about the issues that the Republicans almost constantly hide from. And anyone who refuses to 'vote the line' will be ostracized for 'letting Obama win.'

Got a good idea, Republicans, how about fighting to win for once?

Did he? Ok, that rules him out for me. But I defenitely believe a candidate needs to speak like this. Know what you are talking about, believe in what you’re saying. It’s so easy in concept, but so hard to find outside of Washington in acutal practice.

Brilliant. Just bleeping brilliant.
