Steve Wynn the Democrat hotel mogul in Las Vegas has unloaded on Barack Obama. When he said “my customers and the companies that provide the vitality for the hospitality and restaurant industry…they are frightened of this administration…” my first thought was Senator Harry Reid loading-up and busing the city’s casino workers to the polls. Steve Wynn says he is a Harry Reid supporter. A question for Mr. Wynn: Have you not noticed that Reid supports EVERYTHING Obama is, and does?
Here are snippets (some paragraphing to make it easier to read is mine, and some emphasis):
And I’m saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime.
And I can prove it and I could spend the next 3 hours giving you examples of all of us in this market place that are frightened to death about all the new regulations, our healthcare costs escalate, regulations coming from left and right.
A President that seems, that keeps using that word redistribution.…And it makes you slow down and not invest your money…And those of us who have business opportunities and the capital to do it are going to sit in fear of the President. And a lot of people don’t want to say that.
They’ll say, God, don’t be attacking Obama. Well, this is Obama’s deal and it’s Obama that’s responsible for this fear in America.
The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don’t invest, their holding too much money. We haven’t heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists.
Everybody’s afraid of the government and there’s no need soft peddling it, it’s the truth. It is the truth. And that’s true of Democratic businessman and Republican businessman, and I am a Democratic businessman and I support Harry Reid. I support Democrats and Republicans. And I’m telling you that the business community in this company is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States.
And until he’s gone, everybody’s going to be sitting on their thumbs.
Every Democrat in Congress with any power, supports Obama and supports Harry Reid. Mr. Wynn, you mention the word ‘nauseating,’ to describe the actions of both parties in Congress, but your position of Democrat support is also nauseating. Barack Obama could not do what he has done without the overwhelming support Democrats in Congress (with the exception of Oklahoma’s true Blue Dog Democrat, Congressman Dan Boren).
