Blowing Cash in Vegas v. Blowing Cash in DC

The President is out with his latest economic advice:
"When times are tough, you tighten your belts," the president said.
Well said Mr President.
"You don't go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage...."
Oh, OK....that must be different than increasing next year's deficit by 36%, and expanding the deficit by an additional $2 Trillion over the next decade? Must be....
"You don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you're trying to save for college."
Again, I guess that is different than all of our cash being blown in the city of Washington DC.

Geez, it has only been a year, but Las Vegas has been replaced by DC as the city with the biggest financial gambles.

Thanks for the economics lesson Professor Obama...I know Harry Reid appreciates it.

Little known fact which the rest of the country is unaware of: Las Vegas is one of the strongest union controlled towns outside of the rust belt. More genius from the moron-in-chief.

At least in Vegas you stand a small chance of winning.

In Vegas they normally do not extend you credit to the point where your great-grandchildren will be repaying your debt either.

It would be far cheaper to send each and every congressman and representative to Vegas every year with a couple million each, than to have them spend the same amount of time in Washington DC.

Last year in Washington, the Democratic Party unveiled the largest denomination chip in the history of gambling: the Trillion Dollar Stimulus. They placed in on black and lost.

So is BO deliberately trying to destroy Harry Reid??? Because with a friend like BO does Harry really need enemies?
