    I was hoping Sarah Palin would weigh in with her fauxrage...or at least one of you all that expressed fauxrage on her behalf.

    It is an embarassment that the Mayor of las Vegas doesn't understand this statement

    “When times are tough, you tighten your belts. You don’t go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage. You don’t blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you’re trying to save for college.”

    I think it's a bigger embarrassment that the President doesn't just do his job and continues telling people how they should run their lives.

    LOL, good ole Oscar Goodman! :clap2:

    Just an FYI he didn't throw anything even remotely resembling a "hissy fit" all he did was turn down an invite from the President saying that he preferred an apology for the Presidents ill advised remarks concerning Las Vegas (President Obama apologized to Harry Reid for the remarks but neglected to include anybody else in that apology as far as I know).

    Personally I'm glad my Mayor did what he did since I (and many other Las Vegans) would have done the same thing.

    Marxists and Fascists tend to do that quite a lot

    "We can't drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times, whether we're living in the desert or we're living in the tundra, and then just expect every other country is going to say OK, you know, you guys go ahead keep on using 25 percent of the world's energy, even though you only account for 3 percent of the population, and we'll be fine. Don't worry about us. That's not leadership." ~~ Barack Obama

    Hmm..Let's dig deeper..Did he use the 'r-word' as satire? If so, It's all good in the hood.

    All joking aside, I have no idea why he would be angry at the Presidents remark..He used a popular destination to prove a point. It doesn't take rocket science to see he wasn't just hitting on Vegas.
