My buddy was just in a focus group with Steve Wynn, where Steve told the group he is running as a independent, announcing Monday.

I live in Las Vegas. A few years ago I didn’t think much of Wynn- just another wealthy elitist I figured. I was surprised how conservative he sounded on a few local news clips I saw. Too bad he’s running as an independent. Conservatism + business sense is a good combination right now.

The Frank Luntz theatre must have gone to Steve’s head.

The same focus group that lauded Wynn gave DeMint a thumbs-down for his balanced budget agenda. The group was enamored with Steve Wynn’s focus on the “employee”. +1 for Wynn, -1 for the subservient drones.

Wynn acknowledged he “voted” for Obama, but is now voicing the popular anti-Obama rhetoric that focuses on jobs.

Vegas odds Wynn won’t run.

Steve Wynn can sound Republican, but he has huge skeletons in his closet, mob stuff. I’ve had to research him for my book on Reid. I am trying to dig down into some of this without getting killed. There’s a guy who worked for Wynn who might play a big part in Reid’s downfall. A hall of many mirrors.

What’s your take on the likelihood of 9-11 if Perot didn’t run on the 3rd ticket?

Steve Wynn recently with Frank Luntz .. watch the meter dynamic

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=or34hvKMNXg

~~~~~~~~

Per Rush:

Steve Wynn Rips President Obama
February 26, 2010
BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Steve Wynn, the Las Vegas Steve Wynn, had his company’s fourth quarter financial result conference call yesterday with reporters. And during the Q&A a female reporter said to Steve Wynn,

“Is it too early to say that maybe 2011 would be better, in other words, how do your 2011 bookings versus 2010, or just any comments on the volume of bookings or rate of bookings for 2010 or ‘11 just to get a sense of whether you see any change at all?”

WYNN: There are more questions afoot in this market in America that will impact ‘11 than I have hair on my head, I’m happy to say, and I still have a full head of hair.

I have more pessimism than I’ve had before, and it’s based upon the political environment in which we are living today. And it definitely is impacting Las Vegas. The president of the United States hasn’t missed one single opportunity to squelch Las Vegas.

We get phone calls — and I’m not going to mention the names of the companies — from chairmen who say we don’t want to appear to be profligate because Barack Obama said this or that about Las Vegas.

*snip*

WYNN: It is preposterous that businesses are under attack in the United States of America. Anybody that makes over $250,000 in the form of a personal income tax return is now, by Washington definition, a rich person, when everybody who has got a college degree knows that the personal income tax rate in the United States of America is the business tax of America.

I am disgusted and angry at the apparent ignorance of the administration and the Congress to recognize the fact that the individual tax rate in the United States of America is in fact a business tax of America. And if you keep banging on that, you will destroy the incentive for job formation in the United States of America. And that’s simple truth.

Rest:

I never said Wynn should be President. I gave some context to why he wanted to move his HQs.

Would you keep your business in a country/city when the President literally says that people should not visit there?

If you haven’t heard of Steve Wynn, then you really don’t follow politics too closely.

I have heard him speak numerous times. He is very good at that speaking too, his reasoning grabs one by the shirt collar and makes you pay attention. He detests Obama and the other ones who are destroying the country.

I’m not trying to “pin” the attack on Perot’s candidacy.

Without Perot in the race, a Clinton victory was unlikely. Relying on the info portrayed in “The Path to 9-11”, I imagine Bush senior would have handled things differently.

Is that controversial reasoning?

“America: Love it or leave it”.

Anyone who would hesitate about the answer, has no place in presidential consideration.

None.

I know Steve Wynn wants Obama defeated in the worst way but third-party candidates are going to split the anti-Obama vote and actually help Obama win. Surely Steve Wynn understands this.

My guess is that he’s helping for a Trump Bump in terms of business publicity. That or mob lawyer Harry Reid has promised him something.

“I assume he’ll be playing “the Perot” to pull Tea Party votes from the Republican nominee.”

Yes, exactly.

A designated vote-splitter so Obama can win reelection with under 50% of the vote.

Businessmen are always the best shills for this since they can self-fund and draw the fiscal cons away from the GOP.

The fix, apparently, is in.

Earth to moron. Perot handed Clinton two straight Presidential terms.

That was eight years of not going after terrorists.

If you need help adding 2+2 later let me know.

Now...I have a question.

It’s okay you use the term “dick” now?

I’ve seen it used in not a very flattering way several times.

I used to get embarrassed hearing children use the term, “That sucks”. Adults, too, for that matter. Now the phrase has become a common part of today’s vernacular. (shrug) What can you do? I guess, thanks to Mark Halperin and Morning Joke, it’ll soon become normal and common for people to publicly call other people a “dick”.

Fifteen years later, the slouch towards Gomorrah continues unabated.

Several years ago it was reported that Steve Wynn was losing his eyesight, retinitis pigmentosa.
