I see where his own people are getting really sick of him.
He is the most arogant dimwitted person to ever be elected.
I'll be betting in Vegas that he won't be running for president again.

"When times are tough, you tighten your belts," Obama said, according to a White House transcript of his appearance Tuesday at a high school in North Nashua, N.H.

"You don't go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage," Obama 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."

Practice what you preach, Obama! Such irony. This idiot spends and spends and spends our tax dollars by the billions, and has the GALL to tell private citizens to save and make hard choices? Is he THAT clueless? What does he think MOST of us already do? While I don't gamble because I can't afford it, if someone else has the cash flow to throw money away in a casino (which pays the salaries of staff, etc.) who am I to judge? Who is he to judge?

Seems to me is just "pouting" because money is flowing somewhere else and not in his pocket.

Wow....Many believe that Obama's continuing mission to crush the hopes and dreams of the citizens of Las Vegas and Nevada was really just a prearranged ploy to make Reid look like a something besides a hapless LOSER.

Most feel that Nevada Dems are too smart to fall for it. After all, unlike brain dead Calif. Democrats, Nevada's Dems have some pride.
