Nevada politicians have had enough change– “negative economic change.”
Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, Congresswoman Dina Titus and Governor Jim Gibbons blasted Barack Obama for the “reckless comments” he made during the campaign that “have caused economic damage to convention business and tourism business in the Silver State.”

The governor had sent the president a letter last month saying he wanted to discuss the economic difficulties facing the state’s tourism industry. Gibbons said today that he was notified Obama won’t meet with him while the president is in Las Vegas on May 26 for a fundraiser for Sen. Harry Reid.
“I am disappointed at the hypocrisy shown by this administration,” Gibbons said in a prepared statement. “President Obama is coming to Las Vegas later this month for a political fundraiser, but he will not help the struggling families in Las Vegas and Nevada who are out of work because of his reckless comments.”
(more) “This is politics, pure and simple, President Obama stood for change, but all he has done is brought negative economic change to Nevada,” Gibbons said.
Barack Obama might as well get used to this.
It’s not likely his big-spending socialist agenda will bring relief to the masses anytime soon.
