"What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas"

I wish this was true and she stayed there.

Notice the word “Vacation” is not in the article. It’s a family trip. It sounds like they are visiting family

This is why the drop out rate for blacks is so high. They do not go to school and attend classes. Wasn’t this 13 year old daughter on so called “Spring Break” in Mexico last week?

-—They do not go to school and attend classes.-—

Finally, a good plan. Too bad he doesn’t extend that kind of freedom to other parents and children.

“You can’t go take a trip to Las Vegas ... on the taxpayer’s dime (unless you are a member of the Government Elite, in which case you can go with an entire entourage of feds and gladhanders on the taxpayer’s dime and the liberal media will look the other way and wish they were part of it).”

Those are very poor ghille suits. Notice the horizontal lines? Those come by using the same length of cloth / burlap and sewing them in a horizontal line. Bad technique.

“When times are tough, you tighten your belts,” said Obama. “ 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.”

THEY don't need an education. They will never really WORK.

Chelsea hardly attended school either, and got a cushy job HANDED to her because of her last name and her parents’ connections.

It won't be any different for these two either! Education??? Really?

Another Vacation?!!! Has there ever been a first family that has gone on as many vacations as this one?!! Haven’t they ever heard of stay-cations, which is what the majority of Americans are doing more and more.

I’m in Las Vegas as I type and I heard something very interesting from a Metro police officer who is very well connected yesterday. I asked him about this upcoming trip and he told me that the last time President Obama came out to Las Vegas, to go visit the solar farm out by Boulder City, the Clark County Sheriff told Secret Service he could not afford the overtime for staffing the enormous effort to supplement the security detail, traffic enforcement and shutting down the Strip. He asked that the President fly in Nellis Air Force Base and take a chopper out to Boulder City instead of snarling traffic on the Strip and shutting down McCarran Intl. Airport for hours. He was told that it would appear too “military” if the President did that. Sadly he didn’t have the cojones to actually not staff it...

I’m in Las Vegas as I type and I heard something very interesting from a Metro police officer who is very well connected yesterday. I asked him about this upcoming trip and he told me that the last time President Obama came out I was encouraged when I read this:

“...the Clark County Sheriff told Secret Service he could not afford the overtime for staffing the enormous effort to supplement the security detail, traffic enforcement and shutting down the Strip.”

Imagine that, fiscal responsibiity from a government office.

But then I read this:

Sadly he didn’t have the cojones to actually not staff it...

Which indicates business as usual-pass the extraordinary payroll fat onto the unrepresented taxpayer.

Dear Taxpayers;
We are having a wonderful time here in Las Vegas! Michelle bought an “I’M WITH STUPID” t-shirt. The girls went to Circus Circus but were soon bored because they said the clowns reminded them of the Democrat convention. I like the fountain show at the Bellagio, but it made me have to pee so I hit Harry Reid’s shoe. Harry had already peed on his own shoe, so I didn’t think it would matter. Wish you were here! Bo, the President’s dog.

All joking aside, there is no reason to bring young children to Las Vegas. The Casino Industry decided about 5 years ago that the idea to sell Las Vegas as a family destination was not working. Las Vegas was built on Booze Boobs and Betting, and that is the theme we have returned to.Nothing for Kids.

Las Vegas was built on boobs? That’s what I call a solid foundation.

The 2009 quote from Baraq would make a nifty campaign commercial..

Remember back in 2010 when Obama told people not to go to Las Vegas. Seems this might get to be a great campaign issue for the king Obama. Here is a link to a 2010 story.
