    he's trying to counter the anti-business, anti-Las Vegas Obama who said:

    You can't go take a trip to Las Vegas on the taxpayer's dime'...
    You don't blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you're trying to save for college."


    "Perception is reality," said Republican Rep. Joe Heck, who represents southern Nevada. "After those statements were made, we had conventions call and pull out, so it did in fact cost Las Vegas business."

    Obama, after mocking Las Vegas trips, will raise money there today


    Twice President Obama made derisive comments about traveling to Las Vegas. The tourist-based economy of Nevada is still suffering from a double-digit unemployment rate.

    But Vegas is an okay place for the president to raise money. He'll be there today to do just that.

    I have a question. Will Obama ever apologize for his gut-checks against Las Vegas?
