Nevada Governor Slams Obama: "Doesn't He Know That Thousands of Vegas Families Are Suffering Because of His Failed Policies?"

Ouch! Nevada’s Governor Gibbons slammed Barack Obama after the president singled out Las Vegas again today in a jobs speech in New Hampshire.
Las Vegas Now reported:

In a statement issued by Governor Gibbons he said he was stunned that President Obama was so thoughtless and heartless with his recent remarks about Las Vegas. Governor Gibbons said, “Doesn’t President Obama know that thousands of families in Las Vegas are suffering because of his failed economic policies?”

Governor also said that “His comments are disgraceful and he should immediately apologize to the working families of Las Vegas.” Governor Gibbons plans to write a letter to President Obama asking him to temper his comments about Las Vegas.

US Representative Dean Heller (R-NV) was also upset with the president’s irresponsible comments.
Lahontan reported:

“This is not the first time the President has found Las Vegas to be a convenient political punch-line. At the same time the President tells people not to come to Las Vegas, he has no problems coming to our state to raise money.

“Getting our tourism industry up and running should be a priority for the President. Nevada has one of the most distressed economies in the country and the President has done little to focus on job creation over the past year. Discouraging people from coming to our state to make a political point adds insult to injury.”
