On the Tuesday broadcast of the nightly Nevada political program “Ralston Reports,” Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts sat down with host Jon Ralston to discuss the presidential election.

Wynn, an outspoken critic of President Obama, didn’t hold back in his latest criticism of the incumbent president seeking a second term.

“I’ll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I’m a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don’t like having a bulls-eye painted on our back,” Wynn said about Obama to Ralston. An excerpt of the interview is below.

WYNN: I’ve created about 250,000 direct and indirect jobs according to the state of Nevada’s measurement. If the number is 250,000, that’s exactly 250,000 more than this president, who I’ll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I’m a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don’t like having a bulls-eye painted on our back.

The president is trying to put himself between me and my employees. By class warfare, by deprecating and calling a group that makes money ‘billionaires and millionaires who don’t pay their share.’ I gave 120% of my salary and bonus away last year to charities, as I do most years. I can’t stand the idea of being demagogued, that is put down by a president who has never created any jobs and who doesn’t even understand how the economy works.

Wynn on a scrapped business plan: “I’m afraid of the president. I have no idea what goofy idea, what crazy, anti-business program this administration will come up. I have no idea. And I have to tell you Jon that every business guy I know in the country is frightened of Barack Obama and the way he thinks.”

Actress Stacey Dash cried while watching President Barack Obama’s inauguration back in 2009.

“I am so happy … In that moment my husband and I just looked at the TV and I started to sob.”

This year, she’s a Mitt girl. Dash, best known for starring in the cult classic “Clueless,” clearly has had enough of Hope and Change, the reality version. Over the weekend, Dash tweeted her support for Mitt Romney.

Twitter users were instantly split on her announcement, with some saying she suddenly wasn’t “black enough.”

Middle East a “Bump In The Road”?

Comments Off on Middle East a “Bump In The Road”?

Well, if insulting Israel wasn’t enough, now Obama chooses to insult the intelligence of the US citizenry and call what’s happened in the Middle East and North Africa a “bump in the road”. Really? Murder is a bump in the road? From the Mail online…

President Barack Obama referred to recent events in the Middle East, including violent attacks on embassies and the terrorist murder of a US ambassador and three other Americans, as ‘bumps in the road’.

The comment came in Obama’s CBS ’60 Minutes’ interview that aired on Sunday night. 

Steve Kroft, the interviewer, asked: ‘Have the events that took place in the Middle East, the recent events in the Middle East given you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the Arab Spring?

Obama responded: ‘Well, I’d said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. The question presumes that somehow we could have stopped this wave of change.

Bumps in the road: The President said the killing of ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya was some of the ‘bumps in the road’ along the ‘rocky path’ to Middle Eastern peace

 

 

 

 
asdasdfTerror attack: It took the White House some days to admit the sacking of the consulate in Benghazi was pre-planned

 

 

‘I think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy, universal rights — a notion that people have to be able to participate in their own governance. 

‘But I was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road because, you know, in a lot of these places, the one organizing principle has been Islam.’  

Ambassador Chris Stevens died of apparent asphyxiation at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi after an attack launched under the cover of a demonstration against a crude, low-budget anti-Islam movie mad ein California.

Sean Smith, another diplomat, and former U.S. Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were also killed.

Republicans leapt on Obama’s ‘bumps in the road’ comment. Ari Fleischer, former press secretary to President George W. Bush said on Twitter: ‘I guess when u win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing “an attack that kills an Ambassador is just a ‘bump in the road.’

 

 
asdasfasdfCriticism: Obama faced anger from those who saw his ‘bumps in the road’ comment as too dismissive

 

 

The Obama administration initially insisted the attack was a spontaneous result of anger about the movie and had nothing to do with al-Qaeda or U.S. policy in the region.

After the head of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Centre told Congress the attack was terrorism, Obama’s spokesman Jay Carney then stated: ‘It is, I think, self-evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack.

‘Our embassy was attacked violently and the result was four deaths of American officials.’

On the same day as the five-hour Benghazi consulate attack, in which RPGs and mortars were used, the U.S. embassy in Cairo was targeted by a mob that tore down the American flag and replaced it with a black Islamic flag.

There were also attacks on U.S. missions in Tunis, Sana’a, Khartoum and Islamabad.

Stevens, the first U.S. ambassador to be murdered since 1979, was a fluent Arabic and French speaker widely viewed as one of the greatest American diplomatic assets in the region. 

A diary written by Stevens and obtained by CNN after being found in the wreckage of the Benghazi consulate revealed that he had been concerned about security threats in the city and a rise in Islamic extremism.

A White House official firmly rejecetd this, telling ABC News: ‘It’s just not true that he was characterising the attack in Benghazi – the question doesn’t even make mention of it. He’s speaking about broad trends.’

Sorry, this one makes me really angry. I know the Vaughns. They are childhood friends of mine. Aaron’s Dad and I grew up in the same community. This not just makes me angry, it makes me sick on top of it. That’s all I’ll say before I do lose my cool. Yeah, you need to vote for this man, this party…who cares nothing about the people who help them get there….

 

Obama Trashes GOP Convention, and “No Ideas” Romney

Comments Off on Obama Trashes GOP Convention, and “No Ideas” Romney

Obviously, Mr. Oblameya should have paid more attention to the GOP convention. I will endeavor to answer his questions, because I did. This comes from the National Journal:

CAMPAIGN 2012

Obama: GOP Convention Was from Era of Black-and-White TV

The president said the GOP event showcased bad deas from the last century.

By National Journal Staff
Updated: September 1, 2012

 

President Obama didn’t think much of the Republican National Convention.

He told some 10,000 people Saturday at a rally in Urbandale, Iowa, that the agenda set out by nominee Mitt Romney and other speakers in Tampa was “better suited for the last century” more often than not.

“It was a rerun. We’d seen it before. You might as well have watched it on a black-and-white TV,” Obama said, clearly enjoying himself. “If you didn’t DVR it, let me recap it for you. Everything is bad, it’s Obama’s fault, and Gov. Romney is the only one who knows the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy.”

Didn’t DVR it, don’t need a biased recap. Who among us, unless you’re a liberal thinks things are great? Who among you (sans liberal bias) is better off than you were 4 years ago? Well, aside from blaming GW Bush, who is in the drivers seat? Not that Romney is the only one, but he’s much better equipped from seeing his background records that seeing yours…oh, I forgot, your records are sealed. And the only thing growing from the Oblameya administration…is the deficit.

He added, “There was a lot of talk about hard truths and bold choices, but nobody ever actually bothered to tell you what they were.”

Here’s the plan, as laid out by Mitt Romney in his acceptance speech:

And unlike the President, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. It has 5 steps.

First, by 2020, North America will be energy independent by taking full advantage of our oil and coal and gas and nuclear and renewables.

Second, we will give our fellow citizens the skills they need for the jobs of today and the careers of tomorrow. When it comes to the school your child will attend, every parent should have a choice, and every child should have a chance.

Third, we will make trade work for America by forging new trade agreements. And when nations cheat in trade, there will be unmistakable consequences.

Fourth, to assure every entrepreneur and every job creator that their investments in America will not vanish as have those in Greece, we will cut the deficit and put America on track to a balanced budget.

And fifth, we will champion SMALL businesses, America’s engine of job growth. That means reducing taxes on business, not raising them. It means simplifying and modernizing the regulations that hurt small business the most. And it means that we must rein in the skyrocketing cost of healthcare by repealing and replacing Obamacare.

He said Romney “did not offer a single new idea, just retreads of the same old policies that have been sticking it to the middle class for years.” He told the audience, “you’ve lived through it and you can’t afford to repeat it.”

In one phrase, he summed up how he’s going to stop that…

And let me make this very clear – unlike President Obama, I will not raise taxes on the middle class.

As president, I will protect the sanctity of life. I will honor the institution of marriage. And I will guarantee America’s first liberty: the freedom of religion.

President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. MY promise…is to help you and your family.

The crowd booed when Obama opened his speech with a mention of the GOP convention. “Don’t boo,” he told them. “Vote.”

AMEN!

Labor Department spends stimulus funds for Obama ads during Olbermann, Maddow shows

Comments Off on Labor Department spends stimulus funds for Obama ads during Olbermann, Maddow shows

The Labor Department paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal stimulus funds to a public relations firm to run more than 100 commercials touting the Obama administration’s “green training” job efforts on two MSNBC cable shows, records show.

The commercials ran on MSNBC on shows hosted by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann in 2009, but the contract didn’t report any jobs created, according to records reviewed recently by The Washington Times.

Spending reports under the federal Recovery Act show $495,000 paid to McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations LLC, which the Labor Department hired to raise awareness “among employers and influencers about the [Job Corps] program’s existing and new training initiatives in high growth and environmentally friendly career areas” as well as spreading the word to prospective Job Corps enrollees.

The firm ultimately negotiated ad buys for “two approved spots” airing 14 times per week for two months on “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” and “The Rachel Maddow Show,” according to a project report, which listed the number zero under a section of the report asking how many jobs had been created through the stimulus contract.

David Williams, president of the nonprofit watchdog Taxpayers Protection Alliance, called the contract “questionable” because it created no jobs and because of the placement of the ads on shows viewed as friendly to the administration’s policies.

“Hiring a PR firm does not create jobs, and this was obviously meant for selling a particular political agenda,” Mr. Williams said. “The placement really reeks of a political ad rather than a job ad, and taxpayers see through this.

“Taxpayers would be a lot happier at the end of the day to see a completed road rather than a bunch of ads on cable television,” he said.

Unreal… Barack Obama lectured Mitt Romney: “If you want to be president of United States, your life is an open book.”

Obama still has not released his college records.
He hasn’t released his medical records either.
