    Default Thank you CLOWN OBAMA

    for suggesting that companies DO NOT come to las vegas for meetings! god knows our economy's doing great with lack of tourism, other casinos possibly closing and the highest unemployment rate in 20 years!

    YOU inexperienced CLOWN! he deserves a good punch in the head and a swift yank on the dumbo ears .

    look on some local vegas news channels. goodman's f'n fuming--he wants an apology.

    i don't care if he was saying don't go to idaho for conventions--in this economy NOTHING like this should be said AT ALL.

    well if it's a case of companies that got bail out money. they SHOULDNT be going to vegas. or anywhere for a big luxury convention.

    edit. ok i read it. sorry i agree with the president. i dont think he meant that no one should go there just big companies recieving aid from the goverment. i looked at your channel 8. from the comments i read in the article. it looks like most locals agree with what the president is saying.

    NicoleR -- Couldn't agree with you more. This guy has been doom and glooming the economy ever since he was elected. It's the most irresponsible thing I've ever seen in my life.

    As for bailout money, it was certainly tone deaf to schedule such a conference. That's why we shouldn't have the govt. bailing out companies.

    Here's the link. I don't think he meant the comment to be taken like that. I think he was trying to say that the banks can't be allowed to spend the bail out money however they damn well please and not be accountable for any of it. There is a big controversy over Wells Fargo taking all their employees to Las Vegas for employee appreciation week when they got $25 billion in bailout funds. Which means, all of us (the taxpayers) are paying for their trip. That said, I agree that it probably wasn't the best idea to call on one particular city.

    QFT. His new line is that only the federal government (i.e. him) can save America because this recession is "different." He may be irresponsible but he is SMART. By "doom and glooming" now at the beginning of his term he is setting himself up to be absolved of any responsibility no matter how bad things get over the next few years. If the country is in worse shape in 2012 he can make the claim that it would have been even worse if not for him and no one will be able to refute it.

    Breaking News: Golman Sachs just canceled a 3 day seminar event at Mandalay Bay and moved it tio San Francisco.

    Apparently they paid Mandalay a $600,000 cancellation fee and when asked if the move was done to save money, the organizer didn't know, nor care! Strictly done to avoid negative publicity now associated with bailout recipients and Las Vegas.


    [Goldman spokesman Ed Canaday confirmed the conference move to The Associated Press on Monday night but could not comment on the cancellation charge.
    Canaday said he did not know whether the company was saving money or spending more with the move.
    "That's not the driving reason behind it," Canaday told the AP. "The decision to relocate the conference is based on our best efforts to operate according to the requirements of the new landscape of our industry," Canaday said.]

    Get ready for inflation and double-digit interest rates again. I can't be the only one old enough to remember 21% interest rates.

    Wish I could afford to invest in land right now.

    I might support him more if his nearly one trillion dollar "economic stimulus" package wasn't comprised of nearly 2/3 pork/pet projects which he promised would not exist in Washington on his watch..

    Since nObama's economic stimulus package is going to put us in debt of 1.3trill (with interest), I personally think nObama needs to start flying economy. Let's see him give up AF1.

    I must disagree. Now is exactly the time to reward top performers for last year's best. I am not talking about the CEOs who made horrible decisions over the last few years. But, I am saying loud and clear, that the sales people and managers who did the best last year should get the big glittery trips to Vegas and the like. They did it better than anyone else. They should be rewarded and handsomely. Because it is those people you want to keep performing for your company and for the economy. Even the companies recieving aid from the government should send their best on the reward conventions. Because we do not want to make these companies permanent wards of the government.

    For all you non-economists out there you need to do your research instead of listening the media. He is right about companies holding conferences when they need not to hold them. Whether in Vegas or anywhere else. Ok and another thing, if he would have said dont go to Miami would you have the same asinine response. You know nothing about economics and what the long term outlook is. All you see is the short run profit. Have you looked at the news lately, our unemployment is at 7.9%; when an healthy unemployment is between 3.8% and 5%. So Im sorry that Obama said dont go to Vegas to party and convention with taxpayer's money. I support that decision, helping the economy would be creating new jobs and new technology that would require new jobs to help maintain and teach. You cant be serious. Goldman Sachs is positioned in NY, why did they have to go all the one to Vegas to have a convention when they could have easily traveled down the NJ Turnpike to Atlantic City, where they have reported a steady loss since the Spring of 2007. Last month, Atlantic CIty recorded a 7.8% loss of revenue. So, before you jump on the I HATE OBAMA bandwagon, know all the facts. Also, as far as the bailout is concerned, he talked about it in his speech on Monday. We do not want to follow in the same footsteps as Japan did in the early 90s. They still havent fully recovered from thier financial disaster. But we can not all sit on our ass waiting for a pot of gold to pop up out the blue. Especially with jobs and more jobs being slashed.

    Mayor: Obama should apologize for Vegas trips quip
    By OSKAR GARCIA
    Associated Press Writer
    Las Vegas Mayor Calls for Presidential Apology for Obama Cracks About Strip Trips

    LAS VEGAS (AP) - Sin City's mayor wants President Barack Obama to apologize for saying companies shouldn't visit Las Vegas on the taxpayer's dime.

    Oscar Goodman spoke after a regular scheduled meeting with tourism officials where he expressed concern that federal lawmakers might be discouraging travel to the city.

    "What's a better place, as I say, than for them to come here," Goodman told KLAS-TV. "And to change their mind and to go someplace else and to cancel—and at the suggestion of the president of the United States—that's outrageous."

    Obama made the remarks Monday during a town hall meeting in Elkhart, Ind., where the president traveled to muster public support for economic stimulus legislation.

    "You can't get corporate jets, you can't go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayer's dime," Obama said.

    A White House spokesman said it was looking into the mayor's comments and did not have immediate comment.

    Goodman said Obama's remarks at the town hall meeting were unwarranted.

    "That's outrageous, and he owes us an apology," he said. "He owes us a retraction."

    Las Vegas tourism officials worry that increased scrutiny on business travel will discourage meetings and conventions—business that would be crucial for the city already suffering economically. The number of visitors to Las Vegas was down 4.4 percent in 2008 compared with a year earlier, and visits in December alone declined nearly 11 percent.

    Late Monday, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said it had moved a three-day conference from the Las Vegas Strip to San Francisco amid what the bank called a broad review of its activities. Goldman Sachs has accepted $10 billion in federal bailout funds.

    Last week, Wells Fargo & Co., which received a $25 billion infusion, canceled a planned employee recognition conference in Las Vegas after an AP story reported on the trip and the bank received criticism from Capitol Hill that it was misusing the funds.

    Well who cares about Vegas anyways? Everyone knows that everyone who lives and works in Vegas is just a robot, and they shut us all down for maintenance between 6 and 8 a.m. when all the tourists are drunk and passed out. It's not like we need to eat, or have families to take care of or anything.

    Seriously though,
    I'm not surprised by this at all. People don't think of Las Vegas as a real city, so they don't give a damn about our economy. I'm from roughly the same part of the country as the president, and when I went home for a visit last summer I was asked the stupidest questions by people who in other respects are very bright and successful.

    A few of them just had to ask me "Where on earth does your son go to school?" They were shocked to learn that there are schools in Las Vegas. I really blew their minds when I told them that we have libraries too, and they're NOT located in the casinos.

    People can't see past the strip, they just don't even think of all the people who work in the casinos and restaurants and that those people have to live somewhere and that getting neutered isn't a requirement for Vegas residency so they probably *gasp* have children too!

    why the fuck should some company that is in deep shit because of their own faulty, ill-judged actions be having a convention in fucking vegas on taxpayer dollars...ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? they are getting the bailout because they are BROKE! when im broke, guess what, no one bails me out, and i damn sure don't go to fucking vegas!! when you are broke, you trim the fat, cut out the unnessesary....Obama is not hating on Vegas, he's telling these companies not to be squandering tax payer dollars that are supposed to be getting them back on track and prevent them from going under completely. THAT'S A BIG DIFFERENCE...these CEO overpaid assholes wanna go to Vegas then they can do so ON THEIR OWN MONEY!!!!

    further more, why should i, making 40,000 (before taxes) dollars a year pay more taxes than someone who makes 2, 3, 4, 8,10,100 times more than me in a year? fuck the trickle down effect, cause it damn sure aint helping me...and it makes no fucking sense.

    Yeah, it's way better to have the same exact convention in San Francisco...
