” I am not an ideologue, …………. I’m not………..”, Barack Obama asserted  at the Republican Retreat. But his recent comments discouraging people from going to Las Vegas for vacation is  anti-business  and ideological.   At his February 2 town hall meeting in New Hampshire (does he ever do anything but make speeches) he told the audience  “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 .” 

This is after Obama asked for $3.8 trillion in federal spending for 2010.  Last time we checked, we had over $ 13 trillion in public debt.

Obama admonished “When times are tough, you tighten your belts”.  He either believes that he doesn’t have to do what the American people have to do, or he is really confused.  Was he tightening his belt when he sent his wife and Oprah to Copenhagen?  Was he tightening his belt when they  threw  those high price parties at our expense?  Was Jennifer Lopez’s VIP section at the presidential inauguration tightening their belt?

This is another reason the American people are so angry at him.  This is not just carelessness. It is a clear statement that he gets to do what you can’t.  Obama is the one who cancelled the space program, but he put $129 billion into the Department of Education.  Academic performance has not improved since the creation of this failed agency. But it is a great opportunity for his urban parasites like  Clyburn to steal money from the talented and hard working people of this nation.

Obama’s frugality lecture railed against the idea of wasting “a bunch of cash in Vegas.”  What if some southern Republican had said something about  getting cheated or beaten up by a bunch of  ACORN thugs in Chicago. 

Wait a minute……..

 Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman obviously does not have that Matthews tingley feeling about him.  He told his constituents “I want to assure you when he comes I will do everything I can to give him the boot back to Washington and to visit his failures back there”.  

The key word is failures.  This situation is yet another example of how Obama is causing the 10% unemployment figure.

Yes, it is his fault.

Gibbons added that Obama’s comments  ” are disgraceful and he should immediately apologize to the working families of Las Vegas.”  Last year Obama said that companies receiving bailout money  shouldn’t spend it in Las Vegas.  

So you say that the spike in unemployment that occurred when he was elected was not due in part to business owners knowing that Obama would attack them?  Well, this February speech shows that he is damaging the economy with his rhetoric.

Obama’s political incompetence is costing him the support of his Democratic base.  Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev denounced him for “the negative impact of his words on the businesses and families that call Las Vegas home.” 

A Democrat, objecting to Barack Obama’s negative impact on the economy  in Las Vegas.  And the families she is speaking of  feel that negative impact through the loss of their jobs.

Yes the 10% unemployment rate is his fault.

Even Harry Reid, maybe the least popular man in Nevada, is condemning Obama.  Reid says “the President needs to lay off Las Vegas and stop making it the poster child for where people shouldn’t be spending their money.”  If you are too anti-business for Harry Reid, you are probably an ideologue.

Wonder if his “Negro-dialect” comment is still alright with Hillary Sheldon and Al Sharpton?

    Well, all I can say, Sean Hannity, Larl Rove, Laura Ingram, Rush and a host of conservatives saw this truth challenged, arrogant idealogue very early in the campaign and lame stream media ignored the information. I am sick of seeing his face everywhere and listening to his whining and admonishing.

    Maybe our elitist prez doesn’t understand that the unwashed masses cannot afford to fly 2,500 miles across the ocean and stay in a million dollar home twice a year.
    When Vegas is hurting with 13% unemployment and our fellow Americans are losing their jobs and homes, if we can we should stay on the mainland and support our neighbors.

    Predatory Lending is a major contributor to the economic turmoil we are currently experiencing.

    Here is an example of what I am talking about:
    Scott Veerkamp / Predatory Lending (Franklin Township School Board Member.)

    Please review this information from U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley regarding deceptive lending practices:
    “Steering payments were made to brokers who enticed unsuspecting homeowners into deceptive and expensive mortgages. These secret bonus payments, often called Yield Spread Premiums, turned home mortgages into a SCAM.”

    The Center for Responsible Lending says YSP “steals equity from struggling families.”
    1. Scott collected nearly $10,000 on two separate mortgages using YSP and junk fees. 2. This is an average of $5,000 per loan. 3. The median value of the properties was $135,000. 4. Clearly, this type of lending represents a major ripoff for consumers.
