When in Vegas do Like the Vegans

Finally, Obama says something I agree with (AOL News, 2 Feb 2010):

Obama seems to have a thing about Vegas. This is the second time he has insulted that great city. Harry Reid must be seething, but Harry, this time Obama is right. You should not blow your child's college fund at a casino; and that goes for Atlantic City, too, and eastern Connecticut, and New Orleans. The funny thing is, they are all squirming, trying to apologize without losing face.

But the Vegas remark is not the the real scandal in the President's comments.

The scandal is in the last sentence: "Its time your government did the same." He has the gall to brag about making "tough choices" after proposing a $3,800,000,000,000.00 budget, of which $1,400,000,000,000.00 is borrowed???? If I were to follow his government's example, I would be scheduling a flight to Vegas now, and requesting a withdrawal of my entire IRA thinking that I am likely to double or triple it at the slots, and submitting a couple of credit card applications, since the two I have is not nearly enough. That is what I call prioritizing.

It is great having a president who is a role model.
P.s. Liberals, FYI: $3,800,000,000,000. = $3.8 trillion

Maybe you could schedule a trip to Vegas with my IRA, and about fifty other people's and then you could compare yourself to Obama's government. Otherwise you're just a poser.

I had to think about your comments for a couple of minutes before I got it, akates.
