    Obama : Cause
    "You don't go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage," he said. "You don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you're trying to save for college. You prioritize. You make tough choices."

    The solution

    LAS VEGAS (AP) - President Barack Obama is unveiling $1.5 billion in housing help, a boost timed to his appearance in the city with the worst foreclosure crisis in the nation.
    Obama's move, detailed by aides in advance of his town hall here Friday, is the latest by a White House determined to show it is helping families rebound from a deep recession. The downturn is taking an election-year toll on Obama's party as voter frustration builds.
    Obama was to announce that housing finance agencies in the five hardest-hit states in the housing crisis will receive $1.5 billion to help spur local solutions to the problem. Those five are Arizona, California, Florida, Michigan and Nevada.

    You want to know the great part? The Governor of Nevada refused to meet with Obama when he was there this week. Talk about a respected president.

    And what was it last year when Obama refused the Governor of Nevada's request for a meeting? I just knew one of you liberal idiots were going to say something like that, that's why I left last year's refusal by Obama until after you put your foot in your mouth.

    Beck called Obamas action based on historic data.
    Nice call, expect to see more from this transparent administration.

    Why is it partisanship to protect your own interests? The man is targeting the service industry there. Why should the governor want to talk to him?

    I believe it was the mayor of Las Vegas who has refused to meet with Obama, though I suppose the governor could have declined a meet and greet as well. I have heard no mention of that.


    I wonder why Obama, more than once, held up Las Vegas as an example of where not to vacation. Why not Disneyworld/Orlando or other such family destinations? I would think that parents with children are going to drop more coin there than they would in Vegas.

    Obama is a busy man ;)

    I tried to get an appointment with him as well. I did not do too well.
